As a real estate agent, I see a ton of homes. Some could use a complete facelift, let’s be honest, but most could just be made more interesting with a few color additions. My advice would be to choose colors that aren’t outrageous, especially if you are planning to sell in the near future. Attached is an example of how I made some niches in my own home come to life using a deep maroon color that is in sharp contrast to the light color that surrounds them. It really makes the niches “pop” and gives the rooms more dimension. I did the work myself, so the only cost associated with it was the cost of the supplies!
