In these dreary days of winter, immersing yourself in a sea of neutrals is pretty inevitable. So how do you go from drab to fab? Try accessorizing with some hot hues! Shoes, jewelry, scarves, bags, belts…shocking your outfit with one of these items is sure to bring life back to your look!
And in your home? Don’t be afraid to also splash some colorful accessories throughout the space. Consider the following tip, courtesy of HGTV.
“When decorating a particular room, divide the colors into percentages:
- 60% of a dominant color
- 30% of a secondary color
- 10% of an accent color
When you think about it, this color breakdown is similar to a man’s business suit: 60% of the outfit’s color is the slacks and jacket, 30% of the outfit’s color is the shirt, and 10% of the outfit’s color is tie. Translated to a room setting, it typically means 60% of a room’s color is the walls, 30% of a room’s color is the upholstery, and 10% of a room’s color is, say, an accent piece or a floral arrangement.”
Still stumped? Try this easy DIY wall art project that is sure to spark some color envy from your guests. This canvas is simple, modern, and definitely makes a statement! (BONUS! It only costs ~$25!)
You will need:
To start, mix water with the paint in a cup to create a thinner, creamier consistency. Next, hold the canvas vertically and pour the paint slowly at the top of the surface.
As the paint drips down the canvas, feel free to move the canvas left and right to manipulate the paint path and create curvier lines. I kept it simple and let the paint run naturally. Continue to pour the paint at the top of the canvas until you have reached your desired look. Let it dry. Hang it up. Show it off!!
