What a wonderful thing indeed, when we can transform the feeling in a whole room by one single clever move! I am in love with these ideas I found in Better Homes & Gardens (www.bhg.com).
This bellow, is a painted rug! yes, choose your paint color and get to work, there's also a FABULOUS version of this idea on my favorite Blog: 'Making it Lovely' (http://makingitlovely.com/) where Nicole Balch painted a truly amazing rug out on her porch... (you're thinking it might be too much work??? Nicole was nine months pregnant when she did it!)
This here is a really clever way of adding personality and charm to an old table by the window, just get some vintage glass jars and fill them with fruit, two colors will do... the place will look happy and refreshed! Another colorful option? CANDY!
