Huemor Me: Decorating with Ivory and Cream

Happy New Year! I took some time off from blogging, but now it's time to get back to sharing my decorating thoughts with you (aren't you lucky?).

What better way to start the year than with a look at color? I have been in love with cream and ivory lately. It's so clean and fresh and makes any other color pop. A great way to help your favorite colors to shine is to pair them with a great neutral and cream/ivory does that job perfectly.

My life contains two messy kids and chocolate brown dog, so I have to live with and wear cream sparingly, but it always makes me happy when I do so!A scarf, a soft throw on a sofa or a ceramic vase can lighten and bright anything they touch.

Try out a dose of ivory or cream in your spaces — it might be just the kick your room needs to make the other colors and feature shine! 

Happy decorating.
