How To Add A Pop Of Color To Your Home For Cheap

I love flowers. I do.  I frikkin love them.  This is strange to me because I was the practical girl that said “Yeah, they’re pretty, but they’re gonna die in a week.  What a waste”. 

This is not the case anymore.  My father came by our house on Monday and gave me the annual Valentine’s Day flowers.  Usually they are the typical red roses *yawn*.  Red roses cost a ton in February. and are so cliché. This year was way cooler. I normally hate carnations.  But I am a total sucker for an interesting color scheme.  He chose  the most beautiful magenta, deep purple, and lavender blooms. 

I trimmed the stems, then put them in my favorite trusty “vases”  (see that post here).

I first placed them on the good ol impulse buy.  It didn’t have as much punch as I’d like. 

Onto the Wooden Wonderland (aka our dining room).  I have my sparkly tubes as a center piece, but it seemed like a better fit.  The flowers added a much-needed pop of color. 

This turned into a photo shoot before work.  Sorry.  I can’t get enough of the colors!

I think I need to buy colorful flowers once a week.  Seriously.  It makes me so happy when I see fresh flowers in my house!  A cheap, full flower can make me smile. I can’t explain why.

How do you add pops of color to your house without spending a ton of money?

  1. Depends on the time and space. I recently bought some cute cups (or at least I think they were cups) and put my make-up brushes in one and lip glosses on another and popped them on my make up bureau thingy. The colors are just so cheery. Love them.
