TOP 3 SIMPLE COMPONENTS TO ADD TO YOUR HOME DECOR THIS SPRING 

1. Interchangeable Accents
2. More Drama & Glamour
3. Vintage or One-of-a-Kind Pieces 


Color is a great way to introduce the 3 simple components above and can easily be switched out for different seasons or a quick makeover. The key to pulling this off would be a neutral base color for your furniture. While picking a color scheme for your home decor can seem like a chore or perhaps a challenge, color is a powerful tool for transforming a room.

I was ecstatic when the Pantone Color of the Year: RADIANT ORCHID rolled out. A color that makes such a statement, full and vibrant. Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and the mystical warmth intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. Embracing the hues of fuchsia and purple with pink undertones.

Today, we are excited about Pantone's Spring 2014 Color: DAZZLING BLUE the perfect accessory color to any room!

Dazzling Blue also described as a "peppy shade of cobalt," is also vibrant and bright, inspired by fashion this color is making waves in home decor. The colors we choose to live in can definitely affect how we act, think and feel, consider the personality of the room when diving into this statement making blue.


HOW TO ACHIEVE INTERCHANGEABLE ACCENTS LIKE A STAGING PRO

For those who truly want to imitate the masters of home decor, investing in a few classic pieces is a great starting point. Pieces from Dorothy Draper or William Haines are great investments. For a more budget friendly approach start with smaller pieces like side tables or lamps.

Not ready to go all in? Start with a bedazzled throw pillow.

VINTAGE AND ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECES

Last but not least, incorporating one of kind pieces in your home decor not only adds personality but is a huge hit for 2014. Hunting for one of a kind furniture can be done several ways. Take a trip to the local flea markets, craft fairs, antique shows or perhaps in your own neighborhood estate sales. When you can't take a trip, simply shop online.



Can't find what you need? If not, look for pieces that can be re-furbished to look completely different, you can re-purpose them to suit your needs, or take the parts you like and build something completely your own.
