“Use the hottest colors and fashion-forward trends as accents, such as pillows, throws or tabletop accessories. They cost less and are easy to change.” – Julie Wait Fryauf, Julie Wait Designs, Inc.
It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? When you build a room on a backdrop of neutral pieces that will stand the test of time, you can create a completely new look with a few colorful throw pillows, blankets, art or accessories. Try it every few years as your favorite new colors and patterns emerge, or even seasonally, switching things up from spring/summer to fall/winter. You’ll feel like you’re treating yourself without over-spending.
