For this Better Homes and Gardens assignment to be magazine noteworthy I created a fresh bold vibe by adding hits of color with art, pillows and other small furnishings

You can produce this same effect as well:
Freshen up a space by adding grouping of bright colored pillows. The nuetral pallette of the room, mostly whites with light blue couch, is a perfect pallette for an EASY makeover. Adding brights gives the space a cool uplift. Pillows adds punch as does the surprising colorful art.
We took out the brown sisel rug adding the neutral grey rug.
See how pulling the rug under the sofa pulls the seating area together.

One more tip:
Keeping fresh flowers in any room adds immediate invaluable impact.
Always look for what is blooming in season.
Bright pink azaleas were the perfect cutting for this spring shoot for Better Homes and Gardens magazine.
Multiples make an impact too, instead of just 1 or 2 votives add a larger cluster!
