Wanted: Color

Our place has been looking a bit drab lately. Aside from our awesome new dog bed (oh and a way cool wine rack!) we haven’t done much to our place. J and I were thinking that we needed to add color so I’ve been searching for prints and other things to decorate with.

I recently ordered this calendar

and these wallflowers from Delight.com. I am way excited to get them!

On my search, I found tons of great prints but I fell in love with this one by madebygirl

which then reminded me of one of my favorite prints from Village.

I love how they kind of go together but don’t. I am planning on getting both prints and hanging them up in different rooms. Maybe one upstairs and one downstairs.

Any other ideas for me? How do you add color to your rooms?

    these are all fabulous ideas. one of the easiest way to spice up your place is with colors. i keep a few white, johnathan adler-esque vases around so that i can fill them with brightly colored florals.

    the flock print here http://goodshapedesign.com/prints.html is pretty great and i’ll be picking one up in NY at the end of the month when i’m there. flowers are a pretty easy way to add colour as are throw cushions…it’s fairly easy to sew up pretty scarves into cushions 🙂
