It's a new year, what better time to spruce up your home decor with the bright, fresh colors of the season. This doesn't mean you have to break the bank painting the whole house from top to bottom, there are easier and more cost effective ways to add fresh color, less commitment too.

If you like to garage sale as much as I do, hunt for inexpensive side chairs to place in an empty corner or a full set to replace your out of date dining set. Try repainting them with Sherwin WIlliams, Lakeshore, for a pop of turquoise.

Bring new life to those forgotten objects in your donate box. Spray paint a pair of old candlesticks or an old vase glossy white and fill with yellow roses, or turn an old Ikea dresser into a campaign chest with Sherwin Williams, Exuberant Pink, adding gold brackets and pulls.

Brighten up your bedroom with a brightly colored wool throw at the end of the bed or a new glossy, coral colored lamp on your nightstand with coordinating ikat toss pillows. My sure-fire accessory shops, Homegoods-Park Lane, Marshalls-Preston Center, Z Galleria-Alpha Road, World Market-Old Towne.

Lastly, the most classic and convenient way to add color, fresh floral. My favorites, blue or green hydrangeas on the dining table or orange tulips in the kitchen. Don't try to get overly complicated with mixed floral arrangements, keep it simple, most bunches can be purchased for under $10.

Adding color to your space is easy, be fearless and remember that nothing is permanent
