Do you want to add more color to your home? Be inspired by the colorful two-bedroom condo decorated by interior decorator Ronald Gonzales! To help get you started, here are four tips and tricks that you may want to consider:

  • Complement a white space with vibrant colors. If you want to paint the whole room white, use accessories like a green pillow or a multi-colored carpet. 
  • Start small. It might be love at first sight when you see the perfect blue paint — but can you live with it? Before you paint an entire wall, cover a small portion of the wall first!
  • Try interesting color combinations. Don't just pair chocolate brown with conventional choices like tan or cream!  You can think about using brown with green or even purple.
  • Stick with one color scheme. For a consistent look, Ronald used brown touches in every room of this two-bedroom condo.
