I love color. All colors. They make me extremely happy. I am constantly planning how I would like to paint my walls and I find inspiration daily in all sorts of places. However, like many 20-somethings out there, I live in an apartment. While it is great and I love it, there is only so far you can go with decorating. We are not able to paint and make the place really our own. This has left us looking for other ways to bring in some color and interest into our tiny space.
I love the painted open frames. Look at what a pop it gives this fairly neutral space. I have started searching for interesting frames at thrift stores that I can strip and repaint in interesting colors. My plan is to actually hang them in our bathroom, which is desperate for some color. Dan and I stopped by a Goodwill last night and I found some really great frames with a lot of texture. I cannot wait to go pick out the paint!
Pillows are another way I am planning on adding some color to our space. I found these four at ZGALLERIE and I love how they all supply a color pop in their own way.
Then there is this bedding. I WANT IT SO BADLY!!!!! Throw on some pink pillows and I am in color heaven. My entire life, I have been attracted to colorful bedding but I ALWAYS go for a neutral duvet cover with cream pillow cases, or what have you. Well - enough is enough. I am going for some colorful bedding. Soon. And it might just have to be this one (Also from ZGALLERIE).
Last, but certainly not least, is this wall art that Dan and I found on Etsy. Talk about great color! We have been talking about these for a month or so since we first found them and I have a feeling they may be headed our way soon.
So - to all of you out there - what have you done in the past to add some color when painting was absolutely not an option? I would love to hear your ideas!!
