By Madeline Heiser February 12th, 2019



If you are looking to a make a big statement but aren't ready to go all the way just yet, an accent wall is your friend! It brings in a lot of color into your space without being overbearing. Plus, it's just one wall so it's easy to change if you want to mix things up!

Furniture is a big investment, but it can really make your space pop. Throw in a colored bench or chair for a small pop or opt for a colored velvet sofa if you are really feeling playful! If you aren't convinced, adding a colorful poof is a great way to add color without breaking the bank!

What an easy way to add color! Even if you have an all neutral space, one piece of colorful art can make a huge difference! The neutral room turns the art into the focal piece which is great if the art is special to you. Art doesn't always have to be a painting either, Wall decor like decorative plates and metal work can be used as well!

This is by far the easiest way to add color. Pillows can always be changed and are relatively inexpensive if you shop at places like HomeGoods and Marshalls. Plus, you don't have to commit to anything! You can always change the color scheme in your space. Play with patterns and colors and have yourself a blast!

If you are afraid of color monochromatic is a good way to start. Color doesn't always have to be bold! By choosing a light pastel and sticking with that color palette you will find that the room almost looks neutral!

Another easy way to add color and you can always change it out! Larger accessories like vases and rugs can do a lot for a space. Feel free to display your collection of figurines or whatever tickles your fancy. Experiment and don't be afraid to move your accessories from one room to another! There's so much fun to be had!

Spring Up Your Home

By Madeline Heiser

1. Add a colorful tapestry for an easy pop of color. Because they don't require much to hang, this is a simple accessory you can add that's labor and damage free.2. Using plates/baskets as wall art is a great alternative to canvas. If you choose this route, you can switch out the plates and colors every season! When your furniture and large pieces are neutral you can really play with the accessories and easily switch things up when you need some change. Remember this when you are shopping for large items.
