Clearly, as much as I like to pretend otherwise, I am not the best proponent of self control. Just look at the explosion of metallics, prints and colors in my office.
To paraphrase one of my favorite quotes from Pinterest, "This brain of mine has just two settings: nothing at all or too much. There is no in-between."
The same theory is, of course, applied to home decor, which perfectly explains the sudden drop of enthusiasm displayed by visitors as they first enter my office (Wow, so glamorous!) and then proceed to our living room (Oh...).
Clearly it was time for a room refresh.
When Wayfair first approached me to join their #PopOfColor campaign, I was excited to say the least. In my book, gold is a neutral, so the items that had fallen victim to my gold spray paint obsession weren't exactly serving a #PopOfColor purpose.
I considered pillows, rugs, ottomans, poufs – until I laid my eyes on the Holly & Martin Eontic 2 Piece Nesting Tables. The modern metal texture, the poppy red hue and the varying height of the tables were just what I needed to add dimension to the otherwise uninteresting living room.
The trick to infusing your space with a pop of color is to limit the amount of colors you use. I myself am partial to reds, pinks and oranges, so I opted for the bright hue of the nesting tables, which also happened to fit seamlessly with my DIY artwork. The poppy red color nicely highlights the metallic accessories without overwhelming the room. I'm considering the Surya Intersected Geometrics pillow in a similar shade to complete the look.
What do you think of the colorful addition? Is there a space in your home that needs a pop of color?
