Decorating with Seasonal Color Pops

May 24, 2012

I have to admit that autumn is my favorite season. But summer is second and the change from cold weather to warm can be a great time to refresh the decor in your home. I like to add pops of color with accessories. They are typically not expensive and they are easy to execute. Maybe some of these ideas can work for your home.

Live plants in bright cache pots add healthy oxygen to the air and beauty.

Dried flowers can also add color and texture and ironically they don’t seem to collect much dust. Brightly hued glass bottles can add shine with the color. These can be found in many places, like TJ Maxx, Meijers, Michaels, Hobby Lobby for very little cash.

Throw blankets or quilts are useful eye candies. Just keep the weight of the fabric in mind when choosing a textile to drape over your bed or sofa. I have recently seen an all-season wool which had an element of shine. Bamboo is a new trend for throws and blankets. It is lightweight and made of easily renewed sources.

Accent rugs can be changed with ease and they add personality to utilitarian spaces.

Candles add color and a fresh scent if you choose ones with perfume or natural aromas.

Colorful dish towels add zest to the kitchen. And if you have an open floor plan they might even connect colors from the kitchen to the adjoining spaces.

I hope one or more of these ideas will help you brighten your space.
