Bring in the touch of Tangerine Tango into your kitchen by way of updating your everyday flatware. For those of you who are really frugal, do-it-yourselfer's, why not whip out a can of spray paint and give the handles of your flatware a nice refreshing face lift?!

Accent pieces such as decorative bed or sofa pillows add a nice simple touch to a room and bring in color, texture and design. Accent rugs tie everything together and make nice spots for the kids or animals to play. Don't forget to check out local thrift stores, yard and estate sales to save and be fashion forward!
