Modern Throw Pillows, Graphic Pillows, from Chiasso

I love flipping through home decor magazines and blogs to find my own home decorating inspirations. I recently went though all the tear outs I've saved and found that most of the pages I really liked featured rooms with lots of art. Whether it's hanging on the walls or standing on floors and tables, a room with some nice art definitely sends a cultured vibe. But anyone who's walked into a gallery knows that art isn't cheap, right? Nope! There's no need to spend your life savings on decorating your home with art. These days you can find meaningful and unique art at practically bargain basement prices. Show off your bring with some clear glass diamond shaped sculpture you can use as a paperweight or conversation piece. Short on space? A graceful bust can do double duty as a necklace holder as well. Check out my slideshow for more art you won't have to rob a museum to get!

While the holidays have just passed and it may still be cold outside, I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of colorful spring flowers and clear skies in the coming months. So to hasten the slow approach of spring, I've found a few ways to update your home with some colorful accents without a lot of effort. Plant a keylime tree in your patio or sunny kitchen for a dash of natural aroma and bright color to match. A cherry red pillow against your sofa or bed will certainly bring some much needed color. Even if it's still cold and gray outside, take a look at my slideshow to see how you can easily update your home and be ready when spring finally rolls around!
