Do you guys remember a couple of weeks ago when I asked if you loved this color?
75% of you loved this color as much as I do.
Its Rich Plum by Krylon. I pretty much want to paint everything in my house with it.
One of the biggest ways to add impact in a room is to change the lighting. Simple updates like that make the biggest difference ever.
My future BFF Nate Berkus did a segment a week or 2 ago where he talked about using really neutral lighting fixtures to update a space.
You know where I am going with this right?
I agree with him to a degree. If you are spending hundreds of dollars on a chandelier you should get something that will go with everything.
What if you find something awesome for say $15.00 at a thrift store and add 2 cans of spray paint? Does it have to be neutral then?
I say pssh to that concept.
Something like this is much more exciting don’t you think?
The practically perfect plummy purple that pretty poignantly portrays that a person possesses a pair. (You know what kind of pair I am talking about right?)
When you shop at thrift stores and your husband knows how to rewire a light fixture then guess what? You can change things up as much as you want.
Its cost effective, different and just plain rockstar.
Cause I mean who really wants to spend $500 on a light anyway?…..
Don’t be afraid to change things up. Don’t be afraid to do something that is against the norm. I have nothing else in my house that is purple. But guess what? I don’t care.
If I wanted stuff to be the same as everyone elses I would have left the light that was in it there.
So what are you going to do this weekend that is against the norm?
