In addition to being smart about your furniture, layout, and lighting, a small space also requires you to be strategic with your color palette – but that doesn’t necessarily mean white, off white and beige. Just because you have a small space, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice vibrancy and boldness when it comes to your walls. Factoring in the most popular hues for this year, here are five on-trend colors that will refresh, enhance, and amplify your small space. 



We’ve written about Primrose, and how it happens to be a great and versatile hue for any room in your home, big or small. Primrose works well in a small space because its warm undertones help to enhance the feeling of coziness and intimacy.

Moody Blue 

Blue reminds us of the ocean and the sky, both things that are notorious of their enormity. Moody Blue has slight green undertones that remind us of a tropical beach: breezy and relaxing.

Orange Blossom 

In the same vein as Primrose, Orange Blossom is a hue that exudes vibrancy and positivity. It’s also a shade that mingles well with natural light, has a relaxed energy, and can make any room feel lighter and brighter.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t include at least one green in this article! We’ve talked about Greenery, we’ve talked about Kale, now we’re talking about Olive! Olive is earthy, warm, neutral, sophisticated, and unobtrusive, making it the perfect pick for a cozy study, a minute bedroom, or a small kitchen that gets lots of natural light.
