If you’re planning on doing some major redecorating in the future but your less than large budget is dashing your lofty renovation dreams, incorporating unexpected or unique colors into your new design is a great way to change the feel of your room without breaking the bank!
The best way to get started with incorporating color is to draw inspiration from photos of current rooms, landscapes or even clothing that you like. Let the color combinations inspire you. At Furnish 123 Austin, we love drawing inspiration from all the local art that graces our walls!
