Shop your home by color…
even if you have to search high and low for the color.
There was a time when every room in my home would have pops of green. It’s been my favorite color since I was six. Back then asking, “what’s your favorite color?” was a huge part of getting to know a new friend.
I wanted to get my shamrock on and make a simple display on the mantel.
Shop your home by color
- First tip…shop by color!! Pick one color. Say…green and start walking with only green in mind. Different shades and tones of green from light turquoise green to deep forest green. Don’t forget to scan the kitchen cabinets, clothes closets and the garage for unique displays. Maybe pass on the dirty plastic oil pan. 😕
- Shop by style. Gather up chippy frames and floral fabric and pastels pillows for a shabby chic vignette. Raid the garage or workshop for old tools, rusty cans, and old wood for a rustic mantel display.
- Shop your home by textures. Texture adds interest. A corner with a small leather chair, a nubby pillow, a smooth white glass lamp, with a sparkly cut glass vase filled with flowers.
- Shop your home by objects. Collect frames to layer on a ledge. Stack plates on a kitchen shelf. Display vintage vases on an entry table. Layer scarves on a picnic table.
One other tip…you don’t have to display all you gather.
Thank goodness for white too! It fills in when you can’t find enough green. 🙂
