Opt for a powder blue shade

Many homes look drab and dull because of the dirty walls that need to be repainted. If you want to freshen up the look of your own space, you may want to repaint your walls. You can choose a light blue, eggshell white, or butter yellow hue.

Choose an unexpected print

You can also create a more playful and whimsical look with a few charming patterns! For example, instead of a plain sofa or armchair, you can choose a seat with a colorful bicycle print.

RL Tip: If you don't like prints and patterns, you may want to choose pieces with sweet pastel shades. You can look for something in baby pink, mint green, or light purple. 

Invest in a white dining set

Many homeowners furnish their dining rooms with traditional wooden dining sets. However, these old-fashioned pieces can often look too dark and heavy.

If you want to brighten up your personal space, you may want to paint the dining set white or purchase a brand new white dining set.

Create a chalkboard door

If you look closely, you would notice that the door in between the kitchen and dining areas has chalkboard surfaces. This chalkboard surface is ideal for jotting down notes, grocery lists, and weekly menus. 

To make your own chalkboard door or wall, you can buy chalkboard paint from major hardware stores or create your own chalkboard paint. You can mix 3/4 cup satin latex with 2 tablespoons of white grout. Stir well and paint on your chosen surface.
