Using a bright, unified color palette creates the illusion of openness within any space. Choosing one item that matches your style, such as a rug, couch or wall art will give a great pop of color. Also in this design they used whitewashed pallets attached to a trundle bed to create separation & privacy between sleeping & living areas. The pallets provide wall space for displaying art too. Don't forget mirrors which give the illusion of more space. This design is one of my favs!
