Pops of colour
"After a Christmas season that for me is full of creamy whites, black and browns, I love to add a pop of colour to brighten up my home after the holidays. This New Year I am loving shades ranging from soft violets to bright magentas, so that's exactly what I added. A blank wall above my work area seemed to be screaming out for some attention, so I grabbed some watercolours, a piece of paper and painted a quick and simple graphic design. An inexpensive silver Ikea frame received a quick coat of gold spray paint, and for under $25 I have a piece of art added to a space that now completely inspires me!" -- Sarah Swanson
