I love color in just about everything.  The brighter the colors the better, in my opinion.  But I’ve really struggled to find ways to add color to my home that aren’t overwhelming or out of place.


1. Paint: This is an obvious one, but paint really can make a huge difference.  It was hard for me to get away from neutral colors and be brave enough to add bold color to our walls.  But once I did it, the difference was amazing.  We had a main wall in our living that remained white for years because I was afraid to add some color.  The other walls in the room were a camel and dark brown and I finally took the plunge and painted the wall gorgeous blue and I love it.

Before – boring, dirty walls painted in builder white.

After – the paint made such a huge difference in the room.  It warmed the space up and made the entire area feel cozy.

2. Plants and flowers:  I don’t have much of a green thumb, but I still love the color that plants and flowers add to a room.  I have a few fake plants that work perfectly to add some green to our home.  But I also buy fresh flowers often to put on a table or ledge.  I love flowers with tons of colors in them to brighten up a room.

3. Accessories:  Just like you accessorize an outfit to add color, you can accessorize your home, too.  One of my favorite rooms to accessorize is the kitchen.  My favorite kitchen accessories are my colored pots.  I purposely bought pots in bright colors to brighten up the kitchen.  You can tell that I use these two pots on a daily basis and they just make me happy!

Another great way to add color to your kitchen is with your paper ware.  The new Sparkle® towels with a hint of color offer a subtle touch of color to your kitchen.  I love a paper towel with a pattern, but sometimes they can be a bit overwhelming.  Even though my kitchen is accessorized with red, the Sparkle® towels with a hint of color add just the right amount of blue to accent the red.  Sparkle® paper towels are also an affordable and practical way to add that touch of color to your kitchen.

4. Lighting: Lighting can make a huge difference in your home and I spend a lot of time picking out lights.  You can see in the top photo that I matched our living room paint to our lamp shades.   Looking for different lamp shades and styles of lamps can make a huge difference in your home decor.  Sparkle sent me this fun lamp that mimics the design in their paper towels.  It came with a cool light bulb that changes colors and is controlled by an app in my cell phone.  I can use the colors in the light to change the mood in the room, which is a lot of fun.
