Power of Accessories: 3 Colorful Looks For 1 Beige Room

Country Living

I can imagine that color month may be a little depressing for those banned from painting. However, while we have been touting the wonders of the paint can, we all know that it isn't the only way to transform a room. Just take a look at this living room — same sofa, same lamps, same wall color, same accent tables: three totally different looks.While none of the rooms may be my own particular style, it's fun and inspiring to see what a difference accessories can make in a bland room. The basic beige and white elements of the room remained the same, but the editors at Country Living gave each room a totally different kick with affordable and easily changeable details: lampshades, accent rugs, pillows, art, throws, and frames. It's a great lesson to keep in mind for those forced to embrace white walls or those restless decorators among us who like to shake things up every few months (or weeks).
