I must really have Vanessa Williams on the brain lately...you know that song from Disney's Pocahontas, hence this post's title. But I digress...sometimes you don't need a ton of color to make an impact. A few key pieces can really make a difference. I'm a fan of color, although I don't really wear it, I'm all about black and slimming, but I do love it in my home and when I entertain. Here are a few gems I've stumbled across.
-Two for one - 100% cotton canvas, hand-silk-screened reversible placemat, in Loreto Uniform
-Side by Side - Target's slick cube occasional tables
-Budget bouquet - Cabana hour glass vase, in yellow with contrasting red rim
-A little pillow talk - Juniper cotton square throw pillow from Unison
-Good night -Ikea's Hulda Vilse quilt cover and pillowcases
-Step on it - Andrea wool rug in orange and off-white
Feeling bolder? Paint is the least expensive (although most labor-intensive) way to change a room. Choose a subdued tone so that your furniture and accessories really pop, or break up intense colors with hints of a third color. Try these color dynamic duos and accents; soft blue walls with tangerine and grey, lime walls with lilac and lemon, a trendy orange with lime and red and my favorite (which happens to be my living room) red accent wall with chocolate brown and green accents.
