This simple decorating trick for small spaces will enchant you. It is tremendously easy to carry out and certainly has enormous effectiveness. It is simple, as simple as painting the wall and the furniture that rests on it or that is near the same color.
This camouflage visually makes the perspective partially disappear and the room will appear larger than it is. The objects seem to be embedded in the wall or sometimes barely seen.
Here we see the wall, the door and the furniture painted dark green. The effect is soothing, unifying but perhaps a bit unexpected.
Placing shelves on the wall instead of using a piece of furniture resting on the floor is already a good strategy to save space. But if you add to it the paint the shelves and the anchors of the same color as the wall you get a perfect camouflage. Books and decorative objects almost seem to float in the air.
When you use a white piece of furniture, like this wardrobe, on a wall with the same shade of white, the camouflage is perfect. The furniture practically disappears from sight.
By painting the library the color of the wall we get the effect that it is embedded which always suits us visually. A good idea for when you can not build a built-in furniture for example for rent.
The shelves painted the color of the wall also allow you to place them almost anywhere because they do not bother visually.
Another effect that you can achieve with this trick is to highlight or make another piece of furniture more visible. Here we see how this beautiful sofa stands out among these shelves painted the same color as the wall. The sofa and the picture on the wall seem to come out of the picture.
In the same way that we use this simple trick with big and heavy furniture we can also use it with other lighter ones. The chair becomes a part of space instead of competing with it.
