Casa Quickie: Add a Dash of Color

One of the simplest ways to renew the look of any room in your maison is to add a dash of color. LivingEtc has a handful of quick tips that they say will "bring a room bang up to date," and give "an all white scheme" attitude:

  • Line curtain panels with "a hint of luxurious colored silk."
  • "Wrap chair legs in colored paper."
  • Offset "a group of monochrome ornaments with a colored one."
  • "Paint just part of a piece of furniture, leaving the rest white," and carry the color throughout the room by using it for lampshade trim or a cushion.
  • Paint a simple stripe in one corner to add depth to the room.
  • Line a cabinet with "brightly patterned fabric or wallpaper," and "use complementary accessories to pull the whole look together."

Lining curtains or draperies in silk IS REALLY STUPID! This designer knows NOTHING about fabric. SILK ROTS IN THE SUN! The best idea is to line with a hint of beautifully toned Polyester that looks like silk. I am a window fashion professional and interior designer. I hate to see posts like this from utter know nothings who think they know it all.

All white schemes are so not my favorite...unless it's done with really intersting, amazing pieces. Otherwise, it's so blah. I'm a huge fan of color. It's a must for me.

I love the idea of lining curtains in colored silk.

The other ideas sound okay though. I'm wondering about the stripe in the corner. That's way doable. Is that a vertical stripe on both sides of the wall in the corner?

"Wrap chair legs in colored paper." That sounds stupid.
