Decorating Walk Thru

The Easiest Way to Redecorate with Items you already Own

By February 6, 2018 One Comment

Does your home need a face lift? Is it feeling tired but you’re not ready to take the leap towards investing in a complete renovation?

Here are a few ideas to help you get started in freshening up your home with the things you already own.

  1. Consider bringing in items from another room in the house. For instance, the mirror above was brought into the dining room but then repainted with a silver finish to match its new surroundings.

2. Update old pieces. The small desk and desk chair were old pieces that were brought into the bedroom and then the chair was recovered to blend with the new color scheme.

This chair was also recovered to match the new bedroom and the side table was a vintage piece that was refinished with a fun pop of teal to add more color interest to the room.

3. Bring in something contemporary to immediately freshen up and modernize the space. For example, the large abstract artwork on the back wall blends with the color scheme and helps the more traditional southern room feel new and fresh. The ceiling fan and light fixtures are also contemporary touches to the space to keep it from looking dated.

4. Don’t be afraid to rearrange furniture.

5. Consider adding a fresh coat of paint. It’s amazing how much a newly painted room can change the look in a home.

    I don’t know if what I did qualifies, but this past weekend I switched my formal living room furniture and dining room furniture. I was tired of dinner guests being trapped. Now each set of furniture looks as if that’s where it was supposed to go although the house plans said different. Now the dining room is spacious leaving lots of room for people to get in and out. And the once too little furniture for a big living room looks quite cozy. I love the change and not a dime spent! I simply love it!
