Take a color cue, grab some colorful fabric accessories from other rooms group them together for a big impact, low cost decorating solution!!!

If you have light colored furniture, bright or deep colored throws and pillows can transform those neutral peices into a focal point for a room.

Don't have a deep colored throw? And you plan on using it only for decorative purposes, use a curtain panel instead!!

Forget the ho hum neutral throw rugs and carpets and opt for something with a pop of color instead. It will anchor the area draw people into the room!

Group odd numbers of like colored accessories together and they suddenly have a purpose and make a bigger statement than if they were separate in different areas of the house.

Tassels can add a pop of color and whimsy all over the house, hang them on lamp switches, light fixtures or picture frames.

The really nice thing about accessorizing your home this way is that you can change these things out as the mood strikes and it won't cost you a dime! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
