Adding a bold punch of color to an otherwise neutral space can have more impact than adding lots of color all over. Just take a look at these rooms featured on Apartment Therapy.

Adding color to your home doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to put paint brush to wall. We love this idea of painting ceiling medallions in a bold color and then displaying them on a wall. Choosing a large object, such as these medallions, makes a big impact in a space with very little commitment.
