3 Easy Ways To Add Color To Your Home

18 May 2017

Now that you've taken care of your spring wardrobe and added a little color, it's time to start thinking about the other places in your life that need some extra pop. For me, while most of my color comes from printed dresses and bright backgrounds, a good amount also comes from our home. By now, you know that I love color at home.  From waking up in the morning to our rich violet ceiling, to working at my desk in our perky berry office/living room, my space supports my mood and my well-being.
Color is a super valuable tool that anyone can use, though most people aren't sure where to start or how.  Especially when it comes to home decor. And more often than not, a person might end up feeling it's something they should just avoid, or  use conservatively. Are you on the fence about color? Don't worry, I have your back!  I'm sharing 3 super-simple ways to add color to your home this spring with the help of Annie Selke's new Palm Springs collection.
I have to start by saying that this catalog is beaming with color and it was nearly impossible to play favorites and narrow it down to three essentials. But, I did and I couldn't be more happy with my picks. They're perfect!
Ok, so let's talk essentials on making your room pop with minimal effort- because that's what we want: zero effort and a subtle, yet palpable change to the scenery. Right?

First, throw pillows. They instantly freshen up any room. Living room, entryway, bedroom - you name it. You only need one or two for the job and they're easily switched out with the changing seasons or your mood. For me, I instantly fell in love with the Thumbprint French Blue/Indigo Embroidered Decorative Pillows. They have just enough color and print but in a subtle, practical way. Plus, they fit perfectly with the color scheme in the living room. Even David loves them, and that opinion doesn't come very often.
Next, sheets! Sheets are perfect for the commitment-phobe. You can have a range of color and print to plain and throw them on when you're in the mood for color or store them away when you're not. You're constantly changing your sheets anyhow, so these are the easiest way to bring in that desired pop without having to commit to seeing it every single day. Like I mentioned, they come in an almost infinite assortment of colors and prints so finding something that fits your preferences is super easy to arrange. I personally wanted something a little lighthearted for our room so the Confetti French Blue and Indigo Sheet Set was the perfect fit for the job (Bonus: I can add my throw pillows to the mix when I'm feeling like they need a new home!). Imagine waking up to all that confetti  goodness? It's basically a party for your bed.  
Finally, rugs! It's taken some time but I have grown to really love rugs and runners. At first I was reluctant to cover up our hardwood floors but after finding the right ones for each room I actually couldn't imagine our space without them. Rugs are simple, you can go big or you can go small, it's all about preference. And like bedsheets, you can go for lightweight washables and change them out according to the mood or season. Afraid to commit to a full area rug?  Opt for a bright and cheery doormat or throw rug for your entryway It's a fun way to add a little play to your daily walking space. For me,  If there's one room in our apartment that desperately needed a rug, it 100% had to be our kitchen. I can't say I love the tile flooring and it needed... something. So this Diamond Canary & White Runner was the perfect addition. It plays well with the backsplash, adds some texture, and the yellow cheerfully brightens the room (especially next to the stools).
Hopefully these tips helped give you that little nudge and a toehold you needed when it comes to adding a little color to your space. You can do it! Especially with the help of Annie Selke's new Palm Spring collection. Which you can check out and shop, here.
