Yes, I’ve done this subject before.
But I’ve got a few more I'd like to share.
A few more great ways to add color to an open plan house without painting ALL the walls.
If you really want some major color and are dying for something even more than window treatments or the backs of tall cabinets, or you really want more than a dab, you’re bound to find some areas around your home that can be selected to logically receive some color or contrast.
I’m a big proponent of transitioning two different paint colors or two different materials, of any kind, in an inside-corner, whenever possible.
It’s just a neater, more thoughtful transition.
If you look around your home you can usually find areas that can be singled out to receive that color that goes from inside-corner to inside-corner.
-- Below are 9 of those areas --
1. An accent wall
2. A fireplace section
One that juts out from the main wall, where you can wrap the color from the inside corner on one side to the other, so that the entire area that juts out is in the color.
3. An inset area
along a wall
4. An enclosed room
One that's set just off your big open space, like a study or a dining room, that is visible to your open area.
5. A ceiling
6. Your interior
Oh, no! I'm not finished yet!
Here are 3 more spaces color can be added:
