Color has such a great impact on a home’s ambiance that we tend to choose the safe side and opt for go-to options like neutrals and pastels. Those who are ready to experiment often go for accent walls that feature a vibrant shade or even a cement finish that makes a statement. While colors that pop are perfect for accent walls, have you ever considered painting your entire space in a striking hue? This 32sqm condo proves that aqua looks good as the main color in a small space. By pairing it with the right furniture and accessories, you can create a whimsical home that your guests will also love.

1. Opt for light-colored storage pieces to keep the space from being too overwhelming.

Instead of having an equally striking shelf to keep clutter at bay, consider investing in white cabinets and shelves with a natural finish. These pieces will complement aqua and help you create a balanced look that's pleasing on the eyes.

2. Maximize natural light and make sure you have the right lighting fixtures.

Since aqua is quite a saturated hue, you need to keep your space well-lit to avoid coming home to a stuffy atmosphere that's far from inviting. Make the most of the windows in your space by using sheer white curtains. Aside from investing in the right lighting, don't forget to make a statement as well. A chandelier can serve as an accent piece in your living area. Find a pocket-friendly piece at Dapitan Arcade

3. Keep a compact cooking area clean and organized.

To keep your space streamlined and to highlight the beauty of your walls, make sure you keep every nook and cranny spotless. Since most condo kitchens are tiny, take your cue from the photo above. Prioritize your essentials, install hooks for utensils, and have shelves nearby for your other cooking must-haves and small appliances. Settle for open shelves to maintain the airy and spacious look.

4. Separate spaces with double duty pieces.

Enjoy some privacy in your sleeping area with a tall shelf that functions as storage and divider in one. This piece can help you keep your books, accessories, and other essentials within arm's reach while concealing your personal space from the rest of the unit.

5. Have fun with prints and wall accents.

Since aqua is already captivating as it is, pick accessories and decor pieces in colors that complement it. In this unit, black stands out without taking away the attention from the walls. Shop for pillow covers in black or play around with prints and patterns. The owner chose patterns that resemble the shape of the chandelier and wall accent for a cohesive look.
