1. Muted neutrals

Neutral colors look stunning in every room, whether it’s big or small. They make it seem classy, stylish, clean, and elegant, but when it comes to muted neutrals, things are different. Just think of a tiny room painted gray, terracotta, sandy beige, cloud blue, or sage – it’s just not right and it makes the space look even smaller than it is.

You shouldn’t think that any old neutral paint hue will do the trick in your little home. That’s because a room painted in a muted neutral will seem smaller and darker than it really is. Besides that, it just doesn’t look good, and it makes the space look cramped and crowded, especially if there’s plenty of stuff there.

If you want to give off the impression of space and light, you can decorate with warm neutral hues that reflect light and add some accessories that brighten up the space. You should choose furniture, draperies, and linens in a neutral tone to complement the space you have, as well as the color on your walls.
