If you are planning to splash color into your wall, think outside the box. Paint is a go-to choice but there’s a lot more that you probably haven’t tried yet. Make your condo decorations landlord-friendly and use it to bring color to your plain wall.

There’s a lot of ways you can use fabric for your interior decorations. One way is for you to stretch the fabric tightly over the wall then secure it using thumbtacks or small nails. If you don’t want to use up the whole space, then you can hang beautiful embroidered prints just to break the neutral color of your wall. Choose a size that would fit your preference.

Why add paint to your condo walls when you can add paint to a canvas? You can buy small or large paintings as decorations to your house without spending a fortune. Big, bold paintings can easily change the vibe of your flat and can bring new life. You can choose one big painting or buy a couple of small ones and make a collage. If you’re lucky enough to have an artistic side, why not buy a canvas and hung a painting of your own?

 

Colorful Inside Out

Hanging curtains are not just for keeping your privacy and preventing light from coming in; you can also use that to boost your window’s appeal. Mount curtain rods on the wall near the ceiling, and use curtains with bottoms touching the floor for a more dramatic look. Try different patterns and color combinations to see what would fit best. This will not only look good inside, but viewers from the outside can see it as well.
