Decorating small spaces is traditionally done in neutrals only as it’s considered that they make tiny spaces look bigger. But having a small space doesn’t mean that you should stick only to neutrals, this rule doesn’t work anymore! The key is knowing what shades to use and how to distribute the materials that you already have so the room never feels small, it feels dainty and fresh. The following shades are proper for small rooms and they will give them a character.

Blueberry Blue

This shade is bolder than traditional navy and it won’t make your room that moody. This is making a statement and giving a touch of color without going too dark and such a color will add personality to the space. Pair it with neutrals for a contrast that will give a feeling of a large space instantly.
