I, Sissy of Blue Hydrangea, am thrilled to be at Two Ellie today for a guest post. In honor of Paula I was going to do a room to outfit post but guess what? It's harder than it looks. So I have decided to work on something I need help with. Lighting up my home and making it feel more youthful. I don't know about you but I have a lot of inherited furniture and it is all dark wood. I know what you are thinking...paint it!! Well, what do you do if it is too nice to paint?

To me, nothing updates a traditional room like colorful artwork.

In fact a piece of abstract art can change the whole feel of a room.

While going through my files of favorite photos it was amazing how many rooms had an over-sized, abstract work of art.

The more color the better.

If this doesn't make you happy I don't know what will.

Don't you think it adds some drama and sophistication to a room?

The best part is it doesn't have to cost a fortune. Go to Ebay or Esty or better yet paint your own. Or have your children paint it. How do you update a room?

Paula, thanks for letting me visit!!

Sissy I am so excited you were able to join me here, but let's not forget the most amazing piece of art I have seen in awhile...

the one you and your children did! Really its stunning. I can't wait till I can do this with my kiddos.
