Quick and Easy Ways to Refresh Your Rooms
Looking for an easy home-decor upgrade that stands the test of time? Here are easy ways to refresh your home this year
Fireplaces are the perfect opportunity to create a focal point. Whether you have a mantle on top, or a large hearth below, there’s plenty you can do to dress them up. If your fireplace is functional, you can keep some handsome tools and a wood stack nearby to add visual interest.
If your fireplace isn’t functional, you can keep potted plants or other decorative items inside.
Refresh rooms by swapping out accents such as throw pillows, lamp shades, curtains, and area rugs. Add a pop of color with a throw that contrasts with your sofa.
Make sure your bedroom is calming, so it can ease your mind as you fall asleep. If you’re not sleeping well, consider investing in a new mattress and new pillows. Decorate with colors that you find soothing. Looking for some pointers? Check out:
