To separate your work area from your sleeping area, use a bit of creativity and a whole new color, such as this fuchsia room divide. Not only does it create two different spaces within the room, it also adds a brand-new element to the room by introducing a bright color to the deep blue space. Design by Brian Patrick Flynn

Sometimes the easiest way to add bright pink color to a room is with your cushions. You can change them out yearly or weekly, depending on your mood, and the contrasting prints and colors can add excitement to your space. Rather than matching the powder blue chair, these pink floral pillows work as an unexpected accessory and pull the whole look together.
