How do you use bright colors in a small space? Decorating a size-challenged space or stylish studio is tricky enough without adding color into the equation, and while we can all agree to open up a space with white (and err on the side of neutral tones in tiny rooms), sometimes we just want to break out of the mold, be bold, and do something different. If the runways are anything to go by, bright color will dominate our homes this year, but the big question is how we apply this to our little homes.

At least according to Emily Henderson of Style by Emily Henderson, that’s actually the best place to start. “Small spaces really give you the opportunity to commit to something that would normally scare you in a larger room,” she explained. “So have fun with it and allow yourself to make that room special.” While 2016 was all about black, gray, and blush, 2017 is dialing it right up. So push pastels aside and turn on the bright lights. Ahead, several designers show us the vibrancy-infused path to a brighter (and happier) studio space.
