When it comes to your home, you want it to be comfortable and inviting to those who take the time to visit. And you want it to be something you can be proud to show off. If your home seems a little dreary or outdated, a few simple changes will brighten things up and leave you
with a feeling that you’ve just given your home a much needed facelift.
Painting – One of the main ways people tend to redecorate their homes is by painting. This is an inexpensive method that can create a whole new look. When painting your rooms, it is important to remember to take into account the existing furnishings, unless you plan on purchasing new furniture, as well. You can also consider adding wallpaper to one wall. This can create a subtle (or not so subtle depending on the wallpaper you choose) visual interest to the room.
Window Treatments – Whether you are aiming for an ultra modern and contemporary look or a warm and inviting country French look, you’ll find a variety of styles, fabrics and colors to choose from. Cafe curtains are a great way to let light in while preserving some privacy. For a new look in your living room, try something simple and sophisticated. If you have the skills to sew, you can try out new looks for the cost of fabric and your time. If you’re crafty, you can try your hand at a new slipcover for your sofa or new pillows that coordinate with your window treatments. For those that do not have the time or inclination, contact your interior designer for more information.
Accessories – One of the most enjoyable ways to change or add to your decor is through the use of well placed accessories. Accessories can be purchased in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors that will add visual interest and personality to your home. Place them on tables and windowsills, hang artwork on the walls, place large plants in ceramic pots and light with hidden up-lights for a dramatic effect. You’ll want to choose accessories that compliment the decor of your home. Be sure to choose a variety of elements for your accessories such as ceramic, glass, metal, wood, stone, live plants, etc. Accessories are a fun and easy way to change the atmosphere in your home.
Improving your home’s decor can be as simple as a paint job, an exquisite new window treatment, or a beautiful collection of accessories.
