A Splash of Color

I read this article the other day. And it got me thinking. About decor. And color. Lots of color. Something happy and cheerful. Something that I could use right now.

Color is so much fun. Especially in our homes. And in our lives. Whether is be in decor or in plants. Or even in fashion. But today, I'm going to talk about decor.

I think we are all used to colorful events. Beautiful decor. Something like this. understated. But fun.

Or this event. This reminds me of a recent Baby Shower that I hosted. Fun, colorful, and funky. Also very intimate. But so exciting.

We're all used to colorful events. But how about colorful chairs in your home? This reminds me of my home. Because I could barely afford my bills, most of my furniture was hand-me-downs. Things that I'd find or was given. Very eclectic and "Shabby Chic." Lots of fun. This picture reminds me a lot of my kitchen. Isn't it fun?

This is a bit more stylish. Also understated. And elegant. Because there is a lot of neutral color in the space. I actually like this look for our home.

But this picture, it's my favorite. Because I can imagine doing something similar to this, in our yard. We have the perfect little garden area. The one that My Guy created for me. I think it would be fun to fill the space with lots of colorful furniture!

What do you think? Would you ever do anything like this? I would just LOVE to fill a space of ours with a "Splash of Color." Something fun and whimsical. A place that we can get away from the "Real World" and forget all of our problems.

The key to pulling this off, is making sure you have enough "neutral" color. And you need to make sure that this is an open area. Something spacious. Where the color won't be to overwhelming. Also pick one colorful accessory...chairs, candles, pillows. You don't want to overwhelm the space. Now I'm off to dream about a luscious and colorful garden. ♥
