If you want to give your home or office a Spring Freshen-Up, but don’t have the time to do a major project, here are five quick and easy ways to make a big impact.
Just changing the paint color will have a dramatic effect and give your space a whole new look. Keep in mind other objects in the room that will either coordinate with your new color or need to be updated to match.
Replacing or adding new artwork to your interior will uplift the ambiance. The colors, shapes and subject matter can provide a lifetime of pleasure. Each time you revisit the piece you may find new areas of appreciation. Art is a two-way street. You connect with it in your way, and it reflects your taste at the same time, so be brave and indulge yourself with some great art.
3. THROW PILLOWS
I cannot emphasize enough how important throw pillows are. They can easily take a color and dot it around a room pulling a theme through. This is where you want to put your accent color and coordinate that with either an accent wall, curtains, area rug, candle sticks or other decorative items. Throw pillows are the thread to tie your whole look together.
Flowers and plants, whether real or artificial, give life to your dwelling. As humans we yearn for the great outdoors and well-placed arrangements can deliver that indoor / outdoor feel. For taller rooms, trees are great at enhancing the height by drawing your eye upwards. For tables and countertops, smaller arrangements in gorgeous planters, vases and creative containers, bring a sense of calm and joy to your location. Several in an area weave a garden like effect into your scene.
A gorgeous bowl of fruit never goes out of style. A modern tall cylinder, and vertical trough, a footed vase all will enhance your locale. The key is to stick to one kind of fruit per container to create a color burst. Oranges, lemons, limes, and apples red or green, all work great and can be either real or fake.
With Spring just around the corner, your new fresh look awaits. Create massive change by implementing these 5 Simple and Easy Tips to upgrade any Décor. You will create your “Happy Place” in no time. A place you will truly enjoy and cherish.
