Hi Simply Designing readers! I’m Barbara from Chase the Star where I write about simple and inexpensive ways to add style to your home, and as a mom, I get to share some parenting adventures as well! I’m so excited to be here today!
One of the many ways to add style to your home is to incorporate color into your decor. Personally I love a bright and cheery home, and for me that can only come in the form of lots of light, and COLOR!
A very easy way to add color to any area is with paint. Painting the walls is great, but even just slapping a coat of paint on a small piece can really make a difference! This was just a boring cedar outdoor planter until I added a few shades of color to it:
I also added a punch of color in my boy’s bedroom with a quick update. I took an plain dresser from Ikea and painted it a bright red! They love baseball so I scored major ‘mom points’ by adding some subway wording about their favorite team.
Even fabric with a neutral pallet and just a hint of color can do the trick. Working with colorful accessories like this tray, blue glass bottle and bright purple plant, are also great ways to add color!
Lastly, to bring some life in to an otherwise dark and dreary hallway in my home, I went monochromatic! I printed random pictures I had sitting in my computer over the years and spray painted inexpensive frames in the same shade of blue.
