Decorating With Color

What's your favorite color? Try these easy ways to incorporate a vibrant splash into your home decor.
  • Paint a piece of furniture that needs freshening up.A new color can make a dramatic difference. Head to a home store or local paint shop and ask where they keep cans of paints that customers didn’t end up taking, or ones that have been returned due to incorrect color choices. You can walk away with an entire gallon for a quarter of the price.
  • Paint one wall.Use a color you love that you aren't daring enough to use in an entire room.
  • Scout unexpected places for furniture deals.If a hotel, restaurant, or even a Laundromat is going out of business, ask if they have anything they'd like to get rid of. Think light fixtures, tables, chairs, and other unique finds.
