You also need to take into consideration the furniture/décor you already have to make sure it will work with your new color scheme.

Green is a lively color, known for its refreshing tone. It’s also very versatile, as it can go from a warm to a cool color, depending on what end of the spectrum you’re on. Try one of these colors in a living room or office!
This cool color family can go from conservative, in its darker shades, to more fun and bright as it gets lighter. Blue is known for its calming effects, so try it in a bedroom or another room that is used for relaxation!
Neutrals are extremely popular due to their versatility. Different neutrals can be paired with a variety of hues to create a completely unique look. Try a light grey with light pink or mint green, or a dark “greige” (greyish beige) with a dark blue.
No matter what the look or feel you are going for, you can definitely find the color combination that suits your style. Keep these suggestions in mind when you’re choosing furniture and home accessories to freshen up the look of your apartment.
