Allow Color to Refresh Your Life

As we get the first glimpse of spring, we ache for a refresh of ourselves and our homes.  From wardrobe adjustments to suit the new person we believe ourselves to be in the New Year to home alterations for a new perspective; however, with so many renewal options available the process can seem a bit overwhelming. 

That is why it is always to our benefit to get an idea of what is trending.  Sometimes it is just a matter of seeing specific colors or textures to help us focus our energies.  This is how seasonal color trends can help.

Here is a 2014 Trend Report from Elle Décor.

Color to Your Taste

Depending on your personal preferences, there will be only a few colors catching your eye.  Once you have a focus on the new colors you wish to incorporate into your style revision the process becomes easier.  As your mind begins to imagine the ways you can gain your renewal you will begin to see what will work for your situation.

Adding different colors into your life does not have to be an expensive project.  Sometimes just adding pops of color is enough to sate our need for a change.

Add Color & Convenience

An easy way to add color to your life is by adding inexpensive pieces such as belts, costume jewelry, pillows, or even planters.  Home and clothing accessories come in a wide variety of colors so it is not hard to find items with the accent colors you seek.

The great thing about home décor is that the items are often available in a broad variety of colors so you can customize your item for a relatively inexpensive price.  For example, we offer all kinds of wooden planters in stains to suit any preference, as seen from the color pallet shown below.

Comparing the colors within the pallet against the trend report from Elle Décor one can see a many color combinations to suit any personal preference.

Now, you may be thinking to yourself, why would I want to add color through the use of planters?  I don’t even like to garden.  Well, the great thing about wooden planters is the limit to their uses depends on your imagination.

Wood crates are great for storage as well as home or work organization.

Wooden window boxes are great to organize your kitchen or to mount on the wall for additional shelving space.  They also make great centerpiece containers for additional dinner conversation.

Wooden tubs and whiskey barrels have sizes to suit any storage or craft need.

Wood cube planters can hold shoes in your entry way or towels in your bathroom.

The beauty of wooden planters is you can purchase the natural planters and stain, treat, or paint them yourself to create your own unique touches of style within your home.

Hopefully this encourages your creative side and offers an uncommon way to renew your house in an inexpensive manner.  The less money you spend on home décor alterations increases money for a clothing and accessory budget.

Now spring will be here soon enough.  Get out there and renew your individual style statement.

Express your style and enable change in your life.
