Just Add Color When Decorating

Is your home a bit drab not feeling warm and exciting? One way to warm up your space is to just add color. Such a simple way to make a change to your space.  Here are my three favorite ways to add color to a room!

Go Dramatic

For a more bolder look using paint can dramatically create that update… Quick Tip: Use Poster Board the non-glossy side to see what shade works best and pick a less dominate color already in your space from fabrics, rugs or artwork.

Add Highlights

Keeping it simple with highlights by adding art, lamps, and smaller items that can be changed often! Quick Tip: Repeat the color at least 3 times in the space and limit it to 3 – 4 colors. Pick them from artwork or rug.

    I love to see color being injected into spaces. I’m over the white on white movement! Thanks for sharing these wonderful ideas!
