I’ve fallen in love with a recent trend I’ve noticed across the web — watercolor accents in home decor. Not only is this a beautiful way to add summertime color, but I can’t think of a better way to artistically express oneself while adding personality into our homes year round. Watercolors are making appearances on wallpaper, pillows, free printables, curtains and more. You can even make your own watercolor art at home with a few tricks of the DIY trade.
Here is a gorgeous example of amazing wallpaper in watercolor design:

Who says watercolor has to be bold to be beautiful? This simple design in a little girl’s room is the perfect accent.
Shabby Chic Kids
Speaking of kids rooms, I especially love this woodland themed boys room. Simple yet beautiful watercolor paintings of baby animals on a blank, white canvas.

Simple watercolor images against a white background are very on trend. Lucy, an artist and blogger at Craftberry Bush has a knack for capturing a perfect image that resonates with her readers. Here is one of her creations, a pretty VW Buggy printable. Lucy is a true “modern master” for today’s watercolor enthusiasts.

Watercolor has even gone high-tech. You turn your photographs into watercolor masterpieces using a new app called Waterlogue. (Download the app here).
