1. Navy Blue
We have heard before that dark colors can make the room look gloomy and small. However, the right application of dark colors will result an extraordinary look. The combination of navy blue, white, and yellow here is enchanting. Sometimes it makes us forget that the room is actually not that broad. We suggest that you choose neutral colors for the furniture and decoration so that the room doesn’t seem excessive.
2. Turquoise Accent
