SOME DECORATING TIPS TO HELP GIVE YOUR HOME A FRESH NEW LOOK!
I know. The kids are back in school…summer vacations seem like a distant memory, and you’re finding yourself looking around your home thinking, “It’s time to do something….but I just don’t know what!”
No matter how long you’ve lived in your home, I think it’s always fun to “shake things up a little bit” and give at least one room in your home a fresh new “facelift’! So here are a few ideas that might just help you get started on your own fresh new look!
REARRANGE! Often times, it’s not something new you crave, although new furniture can definitely give any home an instant face lift. Perhaps, simply rearranging what you already own within a specific room – or transferring pieces from one room to another will make a huge difference! I like to work with my clients to help move their furniture into more interesting positions. Rather than the traditional line of furniture around the walls, try angling your large furniture pieces. I guarantee that you’ll love the difference an angle can make!
LIGHT IT UP! Nothing gives a room a brighter sparkle easier and faster than new lighting… especially if your room seems drab and dull. Consider adding a new lamp – or even an pair of new lamps! Even replacing an old lampshade with something new and fresh can make a huge difference in brightening your room!
START YOUR OWN DECORATING NOTEBOOK! If a whole new room is in your future, than now is the time to plan! I suggest that you save pictures of your favorite rooms – favorite things – favorite colors…and make some notes as you study these photos. Ask yourself: “Why do you like this room?” “What would you change?” By including the answers to these questions in your Decorating Notebook, you’ll not only save yourself a lot of valuable time, but your design professional will be thrilled with the thought you’ve given to your project!
There’s never a better time than now to think about a fresh new look for your home. I believe that everyone deserves to be able to say, “No matter what kind of day I’ve had, when I come home I feel happy, peaceful and uplifted!”
