New Year | Fresh Design, Part II

Once the holiday crowd has dissipated and decorations have been put back into their boxes, it is always amazing how empty a space feels. This is a good opportunity for you to think about how you want your home to look and function. Both are important, and with an ounce of planning, they are easy to achieve.

Revive a Room with Accessories!

You can change a room’s entire theme just by swapping out accessories. This is simple and an easy way to revive a room. By adding new throw pillows to sofas and armchairs, you can revamp a space in just a few minutes. They can create that pop of color you need in a room, or serve as a transition accessory to tie together different colors or styles. If you do not want to buy brand new pillows, consider purchasing pre-made fabric covers.


Adding new lamps, or even just replacing lamp shades, is another way to breathe new life into an interior space. If you previously had a plain, round shade, consider a square or hexagonal shade with a bold pattern. Keep in mind, you will need the correct measurements prior to purchasing a new shade. Measure the top and bottom diameters in inches as well as the shade height, and ensure a unified match. The smallest changes can help transform a room’s character.
