I recently introduced you to Change Your Home, Change Your Life™ with Color by Moll Anderson. It’s an amazing new book focusing on finding the perfect color for you. In the book she discusses color and how it effects us on a daily basis; whether through clothing, paint, or even your home decor.
As I mentioned before, some might find it difficult to incorporate color into your home. Well, with the help of her new book, Change Your Home, Change Your Life™ with Color by Moll Anderson; I’m going to share how I incorporated color into my home.
After reading her book, it was no surprise my color was Turquoise! I already have the color incorporated in my home, but I wanted to makeover a small space to up the color!
I recently finished my living room (seen here) and even though I love how it came out some parts were definitely lacking color. Since reading Change Your Home, Change Your Life™ with Color by Moll Anderson I’ve noticed I spend more time in rooms that have a stronger presence of my favorite color, Teal/Turquoise. So I’m curious to see if this room will be more used.
Here’s the before. The space was very neutral with natural tones and plants.
“I dare you not to fall in love with turquoise” – Moll Anderson
I couldn’t agree more with this statement! It was incredibly fascinating to read her book and learn why I might like the color so much. If I could be anywhere I would be on a tropical vacation relaxing in turquoise blue waters. No wonder I find turquoise calming and relaxing!
To update the space I didn’t want to go overboard, but I did inject turquoise as much as possible. Here’s a side by side of the before & after:
By adding turquoise to the space it also made me want to make the space feel more fresh like Spring or Summer. I guess I also associate teal/turquoise with the seasons.
As you can see I swapped out the lamp for a turquoise one, added some bright pillows, and accessorized with more turquoise decor.
I followed the book’s advise and focused on “Pop’s of Color”. By adding vases and bottles in my hue it gave the space just the right amount of color. The space already feels more inviting to me, and I love the idea of now sitting here to relax.
While reading Change Your Home, Change Your Life™ with Color by Moll Anderson, I wanted to go against what is typically safe for me (turquoise). So I decided to create a small vignette and put the book to test!
My color of choice was Hot Pink!
Even though I introduced the color in just flowers, I’m obsessed with it! It makes me feel so happy, uplifted, and feminine! Pink has been a color I typically stay away from, even in both my daughters rooms. But now experiencing how happy this small vignette has made me feel, I’m rethinking pink all together now.
In case you missed it, of course I found a way to incorporate Turquoise!
