    Another good way to add colour is playing with curtains. If you are using two curtains you can have them in complementary colours… would look great.

    I have really started liking the color red in my kitchen. I have nice cool tones and then splashes of red like my red salt cellar, red spoons, and red towels.

    Hi Poojya, thank you for your response. The idea of winding colourful wool around bottles is a great suggestion! You could also use the bottles as candle holders. Any other suggestions for adding colour to your home? Thanks, Hannah

    I use my refrigerator doors as a scrapbook of sorts – it is filled with pictures and colorful magnets and postcards from my travels. I also have cookbooks stacked all over my house, which inadvertently adds color 🙈

    Hi @constellations – fab thought. I find my fridge door acts as a source for inspiration. Where have you been on your travels?

    My suggestion for adding colour is to stick to items that are small and easily replaceable! I find it is easy to get bored of, or even annoyed and bothered by, a bold colour. I like to add colour in pillow cases (as you mentioned), kitchen tools (such as pots, spatulas), notepads, etc.

    Hi Lisa,
    Great suggestions. They’re also fun things to purchase 🙂 Are there nice stationary stores around you?

    I love a good wine glass and a table full of mismatched barware makes me happy.
    I also like to swap out colourful tea towels each week and fingers are crossed that my family gets me this gorgeous blue/white Royal Doulton plate set off of our wedding registry. I need new plates and regret not going with some brighter ones.

    I love foodie art too and Etsy provides a great place for both instant downloads you can print off and put in your own frame or splurge on a canvas.

    Hi Hannah,
    Unfortunately no nice stationary stores. There are a few stationary stores, but they are very ordinary and boring. We are kind of living in the past here in Italy… 😉
    I have some notepads from Toronto, Germany, and Sweden!

    Yes, Murissa, let’s hear more about your wedding!

    Hi Lisa
    I discovered Fabriano stationery store when I was in Verona. They had some nice stuff. Apparently they have a few stores around Italy.
