Thanks to Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart for sponsoring this post. The favorable opinions of super cute and colorful accessories are 100% my own.
We have a long living room which is sort of naturally separated but I’ve officially separated into two spaces by configuring the furniture in a way that I’ve created a seating area by the fireplace. We loved it in the winter. I still love it even though we aren’t using the fireplace anymore. It was pretty bland after I took all of the Christmas stuff down and I just got around to freshening it up for spring! Color played a major role in decorating this space. Adding pops of color (specifically blue) is my favorite – and you can totally tell.
I know decorating with color can be scary. You aren’t sure how, what colors to choose, how to mix and match so you stay really neutral. My tip is to accessorize using smaller pieces. This works well for me since we move a lot and I’m never sure what the next house is going to look like. Having neutral basics with pops of color in the accessories is golden!
How to Accessorize With Color
- Decorative Pillows
- Accent Furniture
Using colorful decorative pillows is a great way to accessorize with color. I absolutely love these medallion pillows from the Better Homes and Gardens line I found at Walmart. I love the embroidery and the navy blue is the perfect pop of color.
Plants are instant room refreshers. There is nothing more inviting than having that greenery indoors. I love live potted plants as well as a good faux plant.
Accent furniture is a great way to accessorize with color because it’s not as commital as say a couch. It’s usually a much lower price point but can make a huge impact.
Using colorful books and vessels are easy and inexpensive ways to accessorize with color. I found this frosted glass hurricane for less than $7!!
And a bonus tip: lamps! This one from Walmart looks like sea glass and has a coastal feel that I love. But, lamps come in all colors and are fantastic for adding another element of color into your decor.
