Or take a cue from this too-cool kid’s room featuring Fresh Kicks and Blackest and add some movement by painting an accent on a diagonal. Simply place your painter’s tape on the wall and paint the wall underneath where the tape falls.

Paint the inside of a closet or pantry

Just because it’s practical doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty too. A bold color in a small space not only makes it look more spacious, but it also helps it appear more organized too. So the next time you reach for a jar of pasta sauce you’ll be delighted the moment you open the door. If the pantry’s naturally a little dark, a bright color might be just the pop of color you need to lighten it up.

Use paint to create a faux wallpaper pattern

If you’ve got a steady hand, a little bit of paint, and a brush, you can paint on a cool wallpaper effect. Easier to switch out than traditional or peel and stick paper, lines, dots, arrows, or squiggles are easy to replicate even if you don’t consider yourself crafty.

Paint your interior doors a bold color

Take advantage of an amazing design opportunity and paint your doors another color besides basic white. Not only will a bold color draw attention to vintage doors, it can create a cool effect in a long hallway with several openings. Whether you go light or dark, adding a new hue is such an easy project.
