If you have ever doubted the power of accessories, today's room redo should make you a believer. We recently bought a new, comfy sectional for our favorite room of the house - our bonus room. We chose a neutral sofa color. Immediately after delivery, I knew I had to add some pops of color to the room. I was looking for rugs and pillows when Wayfair invited me to participate in their "change your rug, change your room" challenge -- perfect timing! So here is my awesome accessory room makeover. I am amazed at the transformation.

Our room was pure vanilla when our new sofa arrived.

My initial thought was to add a bright colorful rug to the room, but a somewhat neutral rug is a great way to keep a room versatile. With a neutral rug, you can change up the room at whim with different pillows and accessories. That's why I chose this Wayfair Home Dynamix rug. The 8ish x 10ish size makes a big impact.

The pattern on the rug was the perfect beginning for the global bohemian accessories that I wanted to add to the room.
Kid's artwork is a great way to add an eclectic, colorful touch to any room. This artwork was the original inspiration for the color choices. Bright, colorful pillows add an amazing pop to the blandness that was in this room before the makeover.
Pairing two Chinese scrolls on each side of the tv adds more interest where the tv was once the big focus. The scrolls represent winter, spring, summer, and fall. A framed Chinese verse over the bookshelf with tea set and other Chinese souvenirs, continue the global style, as you wind around the room.

The wicker chair with colorful pillow and stack of poufs is a welcoming spot for lounging that compliments the global boho feeling in the room.
A studded brown leather ottoman (also from Wayfair) is on the end of the sectional sofa.
I just can't believe the difference in this room! I have more changes coming in the other half of the room that I can't wait to share, but for now, I am so excited with this quick and easy transformation, all with a rug, pillows, and accessories -- most of which I already had in my home.

Although this post was sponsored by Wayfair, the ideas and opinions are 100% mine. Special thanks to my friend, Kristina for helping me pull this room together and to my friend, Melissa, who gave me SO many of my international accessories.
I hope this post inspires you to add some color to your world!
