CHANEL makes life full of accent colours :)

Some new colourful towels make any bathroom look more stylish :)

 

What would life be without accent colours? Those small dollops of colour in a sea of beige make all the difference. It could be some new pink cushions in an otherwise white room or a colourful umbrella in a grey sea of people. In the world of décor, colour is everything.

However, a room full of colour is too much, which is why accent colours are the simplest alternative. The best thing about accent colours is that you can quickly and easily change a room with just a small colourful detail. In my case as a cushion-aholic, new decorative cushions are a must for change :) Buying some new and hot colourful sofa cushions on a grey Autumn day is a true luxury which makes life that little bit brighter.

Which décor details turn you on???

    I agree, accents of colour are the best solution to brighten up a neutral space. The kitchen is beautiful!

    All lovely pictures. I agree that a hint of color is always attractive and freshens up a room. I love Chanel cosmetics too.

    Herlig sommerlig inspirasjon. Skulle bare ønske været i Oslo var litt mer sommerlig så jeg kunne kledd meg i deilige korall og mintfarger.

    Klem Kirsti

    Hola Maria, me sorprendió leer que el mismo comentario que me dejaste en mi blog se repitió con el sistema copy&paste en la mayoría de los blogs que sigo y leo. Si tu propósito es el de captar seguidores, estoy segura que a muchas bloggers no nos ha convencido tu sistema. (te escribo en español con la certeza de que me entenderás).
    Que tengas una linda semana!

    Maria,

    I love that tufted head board! Lots of pretty inspiration here. Neutrals are always so clean and fresh looking – so pretty with a little patina and splash of color!

    Hope your week is going well.

    Ha vad roligt att du skriver att du är kuddnarkoman för jag brukar skoja och säga att jag snart ska gå med i 12 stegsprogrammet för kuddberoende….Visst kan man inte ha för många och visst förändrar de ett rum på ett fantastiskt sätt? och vad är det för fel med att ha regler som säger vilka man får luta huvudet på och inte…Någon ordning måste det vara det handlar ju ändå om kuddar!!! kram Nina
