Fall into Color at Home this Winter in Four Steps

As Weather Becomes Dreary, Easily Add Cheerful Colors at Home

Summer’s green grass, colorful flowers and bright fashions are going out with the seasons ahead but that doesn’t mean you have to forfeit such vibrant color just because nature does.  Awaken to color in cold months by adding these cheerful additions and enjoy a lively landscape anytime of the year.

  1. Swap in Happy Rugs: For an effective overall update, swap out neutral and lackluster-looking rugs for something that energizes the space.  If you have hardwood or carpet, you can still add a variety of colorful carpets to transform a room without a major remodel.  Try invigorating orange, cheerful yellow or even grassy green and add a few accent pieces of the same color around the room for balance.  The area doesn’t have to be a circus of colors but these easy additions can add a whole lot of happy in humdrum colder months.

  1. Bring Nature In:  While you may not be able to pick flowers fresh from the garden or even from the store, why not integrate these uplifting beauties more firmly into the décor?  Try placing high-quality artificial floral arrangements around the home such as in the foyer, kitchen and living room or making a bigger impression by adding floral wall art.  For an easy update, try WallPops, the premier line of peel-and-stick wall art from Brewster Home Fashions, that offers the Des Fleurs Wall Art Kit.  It features four large pink-and-white flowers on a lime-green stem with gem embellishments.  Other choices, the Sitting In a Tree Wall Art Kit with a whimsical green-leaf tree limb with blue birds perched on them and the Love Birds Wall Art Kit featuring a tan-and-cream tree with flowers, birds and heart-shaped limbs that comes in four square sheets.  All approximately $29.99 each.  To add a row of flowers, floral dots or a checkered pattern, also try WallPops Petals Dots, Blox and Stripes in a sixties-inspired floral design in pop colors.  To accent, WallPops also offers peel-and-stick wall art in colorful solids including Flirt Pink and Stylin’ Green.  All approximately $15.99 each pack.

  1. Colorful Kitchen and Tabletop:  Go bright and notice the beauty it brings to the home.  One simple way to add color is with dazzling dishes, kitchen accessories and other tabletop items that are used every day.  Try throwing a bold red or blue tablecloth over dining tables in time for the holidays or add a splash of color and nature by using dinnerware patterned in lively butterflies, stripes or damask.   Also, retire old toasters, coffee makers and blenders and upgrade to colorful options such as those offered by Sunbeam, which currently has small home appliances in cheerful pink and teal.  Approximately $19.99 each and available on Target.com.   Another great way to add color and pattern to a part of the kitchen is with WallPops Anya Stripes in an intriguing floral motif dominated by a deep teal, or with the Habitat wall art, a modern spin on a classic nature inspiration.

  1. Pillows that Pop:  Perhaps the easiest way to bring color into a space is by placing bright pillows around the room.  Rather than purchasing, to simply get tired of the design or color later, buy several standard square 20” x 20” pillows and use stylish covers to rotate these accent pieces to fit with the seasons or your latest favorite color.  Try various online retailers such as Pronto Home that offers a wide supply of pillow covers from popular manufacturers that include everything from solids, watercolor patterns to bright bull’s eye prints.

 

Create a colorful home in cooler months with these easy additions and feel energized all year long.
