Forget the paint can. When you are ready for instant and readily-available color, accent with just one or two bright accessories. Catalogues and home stores are chock-full of bright, moderately-priced pillows in patterns and solids. And, flea markets and craft shows yield colorful, affordable pieces. Even one or two touches have major impact against a noncolor scheme. Easiest of all, peruse your neighborhood grocery store, the farmer’s market, and the flower shop for temporary touches. Save the colorful blue or green empties from bottled water. Vary sizes and shapes for interest. Or, brighten your rooms with blooming plants and fresh flowers. One bright flower, in mass, creates more color impact than a mixed bouquet. Neutral and sophisticated, the comfortable living room mixes tailored cotton duck sofas with country-style pieces and folk art. Fill a favorite pottery piece with the brightest flowers you can find to make it come alive. In the early spring, try branches from flowering trees or in the fall, autumn foliage. When flowers are scarce, bowls of fruit are alternatives. RIGHT: Color comes as easily as a grouping of pottery, vases, and plates. DINING TABLE DESIGN CLASSIC As you look for pieces, work with one strong hue, here the blue, to anchor and unify your scheme.
