Adding color to your home is simple, but with so many color options, how do you decide? One way to add color to your home is to choose your neutral colors first, then add pops of the brighter colors with accessories that you can switch out with the latest color trends.
For my living room, I chose gray, white and shades of golden browns as my starting colors. The floor, walls, furniture, rug and window treatments contain my neutral colors. I love how my favorite bright colors such as red, blue, yellow and orange compliment my neutral room color choices. It’s easy to add pops of color with pillows, candles, photos and other home accessories.
My studio is full of color, but I started with mostly white and black. I wanted a more modern look in my work space so chose bolder color pattern. I’ve always loved the combination of hot pink and yellow, so those are my main pops of color. Other bright colors such as green and turquoise blend well with this space. Anytime I want to change my mind, I’ll just remove my accessories and start fresh.
You can see how adding color to your home can be very simple!
Sparkle® just addd a hint of color to their new paper towels and I’m loving it. They sent me their latest towels with the new unique blue pattern.
The new Sparkle® towels with a hint of color is the same shade that I LOVE using as an accent color in my new living room. It’s also the same color that I painted our tree house door! Can you tell that I like blue? ha!
I liked these new paper towels so much in my kitchen that I used them to add more color to my studio! They not only clean up everyday little messes, but make adorable paper flowers.
We made flowers with colorful straws and the new Sparkle® towels. I think they turned out so cute and it was a blast making them!
How to Make Paper Flowers
This is a great kids activity. The new hint of blue makes it way more interesting than the usual white paper towel too:-)
What You’ll Need:
- Sparkle® towels with a hint of color
- Colorful Straws
- Washi Tape
Start with cutting one paper towel in half. Cut a circle from that square and then cut a swirl as in these step-by-step photos.
Tape the edge of the paper towel swirl to a straw, then wrap around using your fingers to shape the flower. Use tape to connect the flower together and you’re done!
The more flowers you make, the better they look!
