Adding Splashes of Color

Hey everyone!  I'm taking orders now for plenty of sunshine and warm temps for any of you who are still snow-bound and/or trying to dig out!  We are having an abundance of REALLY gorgeous weather, so let me know......shipping is FREE!  

When I re-decorated after the Christmas decor came down, I really felt I was giving our home a lighter more Spring-like look.  But......after a short while, I kind of felt that everything was just too beige and needed more color (except for the kitchen which is already pretty colorful).  I immediately went into my "turquoise mode," because everything looks better with some turquoise, right?  That really did work, but not quite enough; so I decided to add some more color splashes which are making me truly happy.  Today I thought I would share how I've added some color to our foyer, dining room and sitting area.

Foyer

Aren't these little bunnies cute.....HobLob!

Love the simplicity of this, but thought it might need.......

A splash more color.  What do you think......with or without the yellow flowers?

Added some color with some new pillow covers from HL.  I have another pillow in the works for the center......I do know about the power of odd numbers!

The tin plate up top use to be brown and rust, but now it's a happy turquoise!

Haven't yet pulled the trigger on painting these wall sconces, but I did add some new 
vivid turquoise candles.

Painted the dough bowl and filled it with white faux flowers.

Adding some bright pops of yellow is cheering me on!

I also believe every room should have a bit of black or black and white in this pillow
cover from HL.

Changed up a few things here.



Brought in these lamps from another room, but kept my tray-filled center piece the same.

Nothing new here, just moving things around the house.  The coffee filter wreath was hanging in our bedroom, but decided to attach it to the lid of a box that I had painted.....you guessed it, turquoise!


I really do like turquoise & green together.

Added some cute bunnies to my china cabinet.


Nice and simple, but in the blink of an eye, it can go from this......

To this!

One little nest with some decoupaged book pages & twine eggs.


2nd little nest just filled with faux eggs.....

Sitting on some stacked teacups.  I'll tell ya', my mind is simply over-flowing 
with creative ideas......NOT!

Even Mr. Bunny knows the real truth.......PINTEREST!

I really had some fun shopping for pillow covers when HobLob had them for 50% off.....they were all just $3 or $4 each!  One side of the china cabinet and.......

The other side.  I think the black and white help breath new life into my olden chairs.

You may remember how I transformed some $Store pears with some Rub n' Buff & lined them up with some faux flowers on this candle stand.

Well, same candle stand, but I used Yellow Crochet Chalk Paint on some $Store red apples this time.  I think it looks pretty cute; but wait......

Something looks amiss!  Where are my pretty yellow apples?

However did they get on the floor?  Hmmm.......

Caught red-handed pawed!  I kept hearing plops of something hitting the floor, but when I walked into the room, she was already sitting here trying to look nonchalant.  Ha!  Abby looks awfully guilty, but is she ashamed of herself?  Not at all!  This is a new game for our after dinner, relaxing pleasure.
PLOP, PLOP, PLOP......"Abby, stay away from the apples!"

Sorry guys, once again I have created a very long post.  I should have reminded you at the beginning that you would probably need some caffeine & snacks!  Oh well, those who know me already know this is very normal.  Hope all of you will have a great week with some Spring-like weather!
