Although I’ve been adding earth tones and darker colors to my house, I do still love soft colors. We all have our color preference, whether we love the warm sunny colors of Tuscany, or are more drawn to the cool tones of the sea. I pulled together a few ideas for decorating with soft colors, which I think will lift your spirits during these winter days.
