Freshen Up This Spring
You may be having the same thought… I need something that feels fresh and up to date! How can I achieve it if I can’t just start over?
Take EVERYTHING off your shelves and reimagine them. Whether it’s a bookcase full of shelves or a single floating shelf, just clear it off. Just one new item and some things you may have in other rooms can give the room a whole new outlook.
A bookshelf or tall shelf can feel cleaner and more organized by grouping things by color. Even your snapshots of grandkids can be incorporated better if you set them on a small stack of books with the binding in the colors of the photo. Yes, in the design world we do judge a book by its cover. Too bold a book cover can shout at you, so we often lay them down with the spine to the back and let the neutrality of the pages fade into the overall scheme. Add some small potted greens and you are done!
Perhaps it can be as simple as angling the area rug that allows you to give the room a new twist, literally. Speaking of rugs there are unlimited choices in rugs today. Prices range from truly inexpensive to more expensive heirloom rugs. Keep your eyes open for something that speaks to you in the same way a piece of art can capture your fancy. It can be the jumping off point for color!
Another easy refresher…..a couple of new pillows will give your room a whole new vibe!
