2. GO MONOCHROMATIC... When colour is spread throughout a room the eye doesn't suddenly stop and get stuck on something. You want the eye to flow around a room so it seems larger.
3. COLOUR THE CEILING... Paint it a shade or two lighter than your walls so the eye wont immediately recognize where the walls stop and the ceiling begins
4 SET THE STAGE... Think of a room as a stage show: There are stars and there are supporting actors. To avoid fussiness that can crowd out a small space, choose just one star for each wall!
