How to add accents of red into your space

I'm not one for red, or warm colors at all, but I do like trying new things and changing things up. That's why I thought I'd find some inspiration for using the boldest color of them all - red.

A throw is an easy and non-committal way to dip your toes into using bolder colors.

If you have a lot of light blue or aqua in your home, then red is a sure thing to use as an accent.

Let the sunshine in - bright and airy interiors

There is nothing like a freshly de-cluttered and scrubbed clean room that makes me feel like spring is really here.  Add open windows (love that spring air smell!) and the bright green of new growth and your home is a little piece of heaven!

Finding Balance in your Home Decor

Whether it's clutter to clean, natural to color, or even the furniture in the home. Finding a good balance is key. 

In an open floor plan it's not just about one room. You want to have balance throughout the space.

Balancing textures in your decor is a great way to add layer to your home without adding clutter!

Look at the crown And look what a "wow" effect that a little bit of color on a large canvas can have on a room. Pick the right colors...and make it a family event. It has meaning....and lean it against the wall :) Of course it helps when your ceiling are high enough to use this large of a piece of canvas

If you enjoy neutrals more, you might consider balancing it out with silver or gold items.

Adding some balance with height is also a great option!
