When Amanda Gluck of The Fashionable Hostess told us she was refreshing her outdoor living room, we couldn't wait to see it. Her fresh-air space was a stunning study in neutrals, so we had a hunch she might be interested in adding just one thing: color. By quickly swapping out a few pieces, she was able to create a whole new look and feel. "It’s bright and better than I could have ever imagined," she says. "Everybody should take a space they love and switch out a few accessories. It makes a huge impact."

If you're looking to dip your toe into color in your own space, Amanda recommends a slow and steady approach. "Test out color with smaller accent items like outdoor pillowslanterns and even decorative bowls. Once you know you love the color in your space, you can go for larger items with confidence!" If you're all in for your makeover, follow her lead and create a dramatic change with one large item. "A rug can really change the vibe of a space, and this one did just that!"

A pop of colorful accessories blends seamlessly with Amanda's existing tableware.

"My space was pretty elegant and classic before ... now it feels so bright and cheerful!"
