    Change the dark carpet with a white one and paint the room with a bright color. You can also change the bedspread. That will make your room more bright

    I would suggest you to add some white colored furniture. Change your celling light cover into something white and bold.

    Silver, grey and cream are the colors you might want to add to your room. I would suggest a cream colored rug with maybe a little bit of pattern. Keep the purple bedspread( I am assuming it is dark purple). Since you have black furniture…I would suggest you to put some light colored decoration on it.
    Change your curtains to a lighter color might also help…
    Also keeping a few green plants in your room might make your room feel more refreshing and brighter.

    Start by adding a bright curtain. A white curtain would make everything purple you have look lighter. Next, you can light purple and white decorations; flowers, lamp shades, chairs, pillows, etc. That’s a good way to start. 🙂

    you need very pale colours on your walls with all the dark furniture and rugs etc.this gives the appearance of space.you could try white with a hint of lilac for the paint

    If you live in an apartment, can you change your carpet & paint??? If not, you’ll be limited to wall decor & a brighter area rug to add your color. First thing – dark colors, like your black area rug, absorbs all light that comes into the room, so the rug is the first to go. Replace it with light beige or white. Keep your purple bespread. You may want to get some large stretched canvasses (at Michael’s) & paint them in colors &/or patterns, or decoupage wallpaper on them. The bigger the better to cover your wall space. You can mix in some long framed mirrors to reflect light back into the room. Yellow & green look great with purple, so use those as your accent colors. Use the green as your window treatment color.
