What better way to start the year than with a look at color? I have been in love with cream and ivory lately. It's so clean and fresh and makes any other color pop. A great way to help your favorite colors to shine is to pair them with a great neutral and cream/ivory does that job perfectly.
My life contains two messy kids and chocolate brown dog, so I have to live with and wear cream sparingly, but it always makes me happy when I do so! A scarf, a soft throw on a sofa or a ceramic vase can lighten and bright anything they touch.

Try out a dose of ivory in your spaces — it might be just the kick your room needs to make the other colors and feature SHINE!
