When we moved into our house, I was so excited for all the amazing things I was going to do to it. If you don’t remember, Mabey Manor was a foreclosed property sheathed in 70s wood paneling. The first thing we did was to strip the walls of the paneling in what would be my craft room and paint it white.
Heaven, right? Beautiful white walls to create within. Unfortunately, it’s stayed that way for much too long. So when I saw this #YahooDIY article on 10 Noncommittal Ways to Add Color to Your Home I was immediately intrigued. Not so much because I’m noncommittal, but because my space needs some color and I don’t want that color to come from paint. Instead, I want it to come from the supplies and content of the room.
For instance, I have a lot of fabric in some beautiful colors and patterns. What better way to add color than to display it on mini bolts? For some of the other supplies, I used a few green bins and boxes to bring a sense of solidity and a color theme I could continue through the whole room.
I used more green at my sewing desk, then created a paper banner to carry that color to another wall inexpensively. All these are simple ways to add color without committing. I could easily switch out the color without much of a cost or time commitment.
Some of my favorite items from the article were the throw pillows (I LOVE pillows!), painted sticks, and the wide washi tape (how did I not know this wide decor width existed?). There are so many ways to add color, and I love these items and the way they got me thinking.
So what is your favorite way to add noncommittal color to a room?

Your craft room looks amazing! You have seamlessly blended the green color accessories with the rest of the decor. Very nice idea to add color to the room.
Vidya, thank you so much for such a sweet comment! I still have a way to go on the rest of the room, but I’m on the right track!
I love how you used the accessories as decor! Why do you need extra pretties in a room where the accessories themselves are pretty?
Exactly! My husband was worried, but I love how easy it is to add color with so many great supplies.
I love this SO much. Pinned to my Dream Office board!
Aww, thank you Ella! I’m flattered!
Lisa, your ideas are perfect for military families that move every 1-3 years. Pinning now.
Thank you, Susan. I like to think it’s because I move so often myself. 🙂
Wonderful food for thought and especially appealing for folks who love to change out their home decor often. I have the same little green storage boxes; they’re great. You’re craft room looks inviting and well organized.
Thank you, Linda. What a sweet thing to say~
