Small Room Decorating: Live Large in Small Spaces features interior design tips from professionals across the nation in the Fall 2012 Issue. By Barbara Ballinger
Despite the urge to introduce color on walls to make a small space seem more important, designer Sarah Barnard feels that white walls keep a space feeling larger-looking overall. Instead, add color subtly--perhaps on a ceiling --using a cheerful, unexpected hue. You can also brighten the space with full spectrum bulbs. People look better in rooms with light that mimics natural light, Barnard says.
