    Throws, rugs, paintings, or accessories are all excellent ways to add color to your space. Pops of color bring life and personality to your space.

    I love these ideas. I used some the last time I decorated my room and bought multiple cushion pillows to add texture and color.

    Also may I ask what theme you’re using for this website. I love the look of it.
