Ideas on Adding Color to Your Home Where You Least Expect It

Image: Lonny

Often people think that, to make their home beautiful, they need to buy "stuff." Stuff like trendy furniture. Quirky occasional tables. Concept lighting and expensive tchotchkes. All of the above can cost a pretty penny. Yet a gallon of good quality paint is around $30 and can affect the style of a space in a bigger way than any other interior design element. 

This article talks about painting as an integral part of the design of a space, but not necessarily painting walls. Read it to get some ideas on smaller, more unusual paint projects that make a sizable visual splash, such as the inside of the bookcase shown above.

Great ideas! I've been painted window trims and the edge of a door today. I got enough partially-used cans of paint in the garage, so I don't need to go and buy a new can just for that little stuff.
