A home without a sprinkle of vibrant color can leave a room looking empty, unfinished, and even depressing. You can get a NEW ROOM (or rooms!!) by jazzing up your place with color without fear. Here are some quick, inexpensive ways to add color to your home - without a big commitment:

1. Candles

The local import store is always overflowing with candles in a variety of colors and styles. Grab a bunch, and place them in clusters of three around the room.

2. Lampshades

A beautiful lampshade adds color even when the lamp is off. When the light is turned on, your shade can add a cozy glow.

3. Pillows

If you’re afraid to make a color choice, buy large, colorful pillows and toss them on the sofa. This is a great way to ease into adding color to your rooms.

4. Trim

Want a quick way to add impact to your home? Glue or sew trim onto pillows, window treatments, even your furniture. Trim comes in every color, shape, and material. Find trim that harmonizes with the mood of your room.

Still feeling a bit anxious about choosing color? Remember this - most stores allow you to return items for a full refund. Ask about the store refund policy and if you can return it within a certain amount of time then GO FOR IT! Take it home, see how it looks and feels within your room and if you love it KEEP IT and if not, then return it and you didn’t spend a dime for trying something new. NEW ROOM = NEW YOU! Wishing you color and happiness.

    These are great tips! We have a very neutral living room and wanted to add a splash of color. I went out and got new throw pillows, candles, and a few faux flowers to spice it up. Guest even noticed something was different! :) Great tips!
