Yes, light colors can make a space look larger. But if you prefer a stylish look over a sizable one, you may opt to paint the walls a dark shade anyway. In this tiny apartment living room, HomePolish used Benjamin Moore's Caribbean Azure to create a memorable effect. \"When you're painting a small space,\" says HomePolish's Noa Santos, \"use a satin or semigloss finish. The walls will have a reflective quality that preserves the light in the room.\" Photography by Francisco Aguila
