After not being home to Cedar Rapids since August (!) Page and I made a trip to my hometown this past weekend to catch up with my parents and brother. I always love visiting my parents’ house because my mom has it decked to the nines for every season and uses so much bright and happy color. I admire anyone who can constantly have fresh eyes in their home – it’s so easy to keep something in the same old spot because that’s where it’s been for the last ten years. She is constantly editing and making changes and trying new things in new spots around the house.
I have been so anxious to start working more color into our home as I’ve gotten some ideas for each room, but have been kind of paralyzed not knowing WHICH colors I wanted to use. Inspired by our visit, a lot of decisions came into focus for me, and while I wait for some new *colorful* accessories to show up via the FedEx guy, I took on a DIY project I’ve been meaning to get around to forever…and it’s full of color and perfect for bringing our house into the spring/summer seasons!
Originally posted on Dana Made It, I love this project and have stashes of the Ikea napkins in all colors and both sizes. This would make an excellent craft for a group because the supplies are SO cheap for the big impact you get!
I added one to our kitchen pantry door…
And I’m thinking of how to arrange this coral-colored one on the wall of our powder room – since it matches the new hand towel I’m a little too obsessed with.
I want to do some sort of cluster of miscellaneous frames with both photos and quotes and work this flower in somewhere.
And a final color-related item…I’ve been devouring this book. Seriously – flipping through it time and again soaking up the hues and inspiration. I highly recommend!
Linking up with (my mom!) at BeColorful….
