9 Ways to Refresh Your Décor This Year
With a new year comes fresh opportunities and a desire to make positive changes. Channel that rosy outlook and start your new year off right at home by revamping your décor. Read on for some inexpensive—and free!—ways to breathe new life into your home this year.
Pick up a small accent piece to layer over your tried-and-true solid area rug to inject new color, pattern, and texture into your room’s design. Found an area rug you love but the price tag is outrageous? Purchase a smaller, more affordable version for layering to get the look for less.
Give new life to a table lamp you’ve had for a while by swapping out the lampshade for something in a unique shape, material, or color.
New colors, patterns, and motifs are easily injected into a bedroom by swapping out your duvet, throw pillows, sheet set, or shams.
Switch up the look of your living room by rethinking the styling of your coffee table. If the stack of art books and decorative objects is feeling stale, a new tray with choice accessories will make a huge impact.
Head down to your local nursery or garden center and pick out a plant you can realistically maintain to inject color and life into your space. The addition of a stylish urn or plant stand into your décor won’t hurt a bit.
Add interest and architecture to a plain wall by hanging a pair of candle or plug-in sconces. We love this look over a sofa or flanking a mirror. It’s a great way to make a rental home or temporary space feel custom and unique without having to pay an electrician.
Swap your nightstand with an end table in your living room or rearrange the side tables in your den to spice up your space. Different surroundings will make your existing pieces feel like new.
Roll up your sleeves, pull up plenty of inspiration images, and paint your own piece of large-scale art. A statement piece above a sofa or headboard will change the dynamic of the entire room at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a piece.
Breathe new life into your window treatments by adding a contrast trim or decorative tieback to your existing draperies.
