5 QUICK AND EASY WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR SPACE


Happy Monday everyone! I spent this past weekend organizing and making a few decorating decisions around my own home. Bright and early Saturday morning, I began purging some of the kids' old clothes and toys.  Next, it was on to the nursery where I completed a few DIY projects I had started before Zaria was born.  You'd be surprised just how much of an impact the small changes I made in Zaria's nursery have had on the look and feel of the room. (I'll be sharing a few photos of her room later this week).  All of this weekend decorating got me to thinking about a decor tip I often share with my clients:  

  "Transforming a space doesn't always require major renovations." Sometimes all that's needed  is a quick and simple change to create a big impact in your home. 

Here are 5 quick and easy ways to update your own space:
  1. Paint - The transformative power of a fresh coat of paint is no secret.  Paint can be used to revamp walls as well as furniture.  

    Try a using a fun color like emerald green to breathe new life into a piece of old furniture as seen in the photo below.

  2. Create your own statement wall with a gallery wall art installation. 

    Select cherished photos and mementos to create a curated gallery wall display.

  3.  Incorporate an area rug to add texture, color and pattern. 

    One of the easiest ways to change the look of a space is to add an area rug. Look how much color and personsonality is added to this space by just layering the bold colored rug on top of the natural rug.

  4. Update your layout- Experiment with the room's layout by rearranging your furniture. 

    In this photo simply repositioning the bed did wonders for the space and makes the room so much more inviting.

  5. Use textile (like pillows or curtains) to introduce a new color palette or add a fun element of surprise to you room's decor. 

    New toss pillows on a sofa or a bold window treatment are easy ways to change the look of your room.
