I don’t know about you guys but when I get the urge to decorate and change things around there’s no stopping me. I recently rearranged our living room and it feels like a whole new space. I felt like it was just blah and not really doing much for me anymore. I would walk past, and nothing… I was about to order new couches and get new wallpaper, I had the items in my cart. I mean, I was a woman on a mission after all. Then, instead of hitting the ‘complete order’ button I thought to myself how can I redecorate without buying a ton of new things? The truth of the matter is, we didn’t need a new sofa or coffee table. I ended up rearranging the furniture and purchasing just one new comfy chair and a piece of artwork. These small tweaks gave the room a new look and feel. So I tell you friends, before you hit the add to cart button on a big investment read this post because I’m sharing how to change the rooms around in your house without breaking the bank. Essentially, one to two new things can add a new feel to a room. Another trick I like to do is relocating pieces into different rooms. For example, I like to change the decor on the bookshelves in my family room. Most things have been rotated from my dining room and foyer. Believe in the power of feng shui.
Here’s a few ideas:
Dining Room: Add a wine rack or relocate a piece of furniture. When we were redecorating our dining room last year I knew I wanted a bar cart or serving table for the corner. I was shopping around and couldn’t find anything I loved. Then it dawned on me to use my vanity! I love it but I haven’t used it in years and it holds sentimental value so selling it was not an option. All I needed were some trays, books and picture frames to finish the look.
Next, a wine rack which serves two purposes. I got this one, it holds the wine and is also a decorative wall piece.
Living Room: Statement chair: Sometimes you just need a piece of statement furniture to do the trick and this sherpa chair did just that. It tied the whole room together. It’s cozy, priced right and fits in perfectly. I also bought a few these decorative pillows.
Family Room: Photos or wall art. I love to display family photos. These frames allow me to create a gallery wall in clean and uniform fashion. I always change up my throw pillows in the family room. They see a lot of action with all these kids. I’ve had these three styles for a while and they have survived many pillow fights.
Kitchen: Add some cozy vibes by decorating the island with trays, candles, a faux plants or pedestal trays. I personally have these pedestal stands. I love adding some fresh greenery such as baby’s breath, eucalyptus and lavender from the local farmers market. A faux plant will look just as good. I have this little cutie. Stack a few cutting boards behind the stove top. I like to get ones that look like petrified wood but any cutting boards can do the trick.
Foyer: I like to keep the foyer simple. We have this table and I love it. I decorate it with small objects like this and this (I have both and always switch there locations around) ,a candle, fresh flowers and lean some art work up against the wall behind it. Mine is no longer available but I like this one a lot.
Other ways to spruce up a room are area rugs and storage baskets. they work in almost any room. I hope this post has given you some decorating ideas. Thanks for reading you can find some more great products here.
