A great distraction from those egg shell walls or brick walls is bold colored furniture. Not all apartments let you paint your wall whatever color your heart desires, but they cannot control what color furniture you chose to put in your apartment. Go with your favorite color and do not be afraid to buy a burgundy, emerald green, teal or orange sofa. It creates a statement by contrasting against the plain colored walls and you can always balance it out with an area rug.

Area Rugs

If you cannot find a bold colored sofa, try an area rug. Area Rugs create a contrast with an effect of complimenting different accents in the room. Neutral area rugs with a tone downed earthy color, balance out the room with a bold colored sofa. Vis Versa, if you have a leather sofa or more neutral colored sofa like brown, white, or ivory, go for a boldly colored area rug.
