Color says a lot about a person or even their business.
When I walk into a flea market, for example, and the atmosphere is very dark and dreary, I usually don’t want to stay too long. However, when it is bright and full of colorful objects and airy I feel like I could stay all day.
When a person thinks of antiques, the first thing that comes to mind is dusty and dark but that doesn’t always have to be the way. I find the most beautiful and colorful antiques at flea markets and vintage stores. They may even be hidden in a mix of plain items. The good thing about flea market finds is that if you don’t like the color, you can always change it. It doesn’t cost much to make it perfect for your decor.
You can also add color without painting with pillows or a throw cover like the following picture:
This way you don’t need to ruin the vintage look of the piece.
What inspired me to write about colors is a new book that I am reading called Change your Home Change your Life with Color by Moll Anderson. In the book, she tells that everyone has a color story. Whether you realize it or not, color rules your home, your emotions and your life.
