Take a Tip From the Wisteria Catalog

Have you seen the latest Wisteria catalog?  It's pages are full of classic pieces offset by refreshing pops of color.  I'm so glad to see some of the big catalog retailers like Wisteria and Ballard Designs adding punches of color to their traditionally neutral offerings.  Even though most of my furnishings don't come from catalogs like these, they are great sources for inspiration and the occasional splurge.  Here are a few pages from the latest Wisteria catalog.  All of these rooms have one thing in common.  Do you see what it is?  Hint - it's a quick and easy stylist's trick that you could incorporate into any room in your house today.
Cozy Rustic Living Room

Butterfly Living Room

Aloe Dining Room

Aloe Kitchen


Dining Tables

Sofas & Loveseats

Did you figure out what these pictures have in common?  Yes, all of them have neutral furniture with added pops of color, but like I said, I'm referring to something you could do to elevate your room without much effort or expense.  Give up?  Every one of these rooms contains either fruit or flowers or both.  The Wisteria catalog inspired me to head out to the grocery store and pick up some tulips and green apples for myself. 
A basic clear glass in a pretty lattice candle holder serves as a vase.

The fruit and flowers seem to add instant life to the rooms.  The best part of this stylist's trick is that it doesn't require a special trip to a home accessories store to pull it off.  I'll bet you go to the grocery store at least once a week.  The next time you're there, why not pick up a bunch of tulips and a bag of pretty fruit to keep on the counter?
