Reclaim Your Space
Summer is rapidly coming to an end and it is time to reclaim your space. Was your home altered into the optimal “kids hangout” over the summer? Well, the kids will be back in school soon, enabling you to reclaim your space.
Take a moment to look around your home. Change may be hard but it can also be an exciting new way of expressing yourself! Use vacation souvenirs in a fun way around the home. Print some of your favorite summer photos to put in your living room, kitchen, etc. for everyone to enjoy. New pillows are a great way to redefine your space — try a new accent color, fabric, style, or design. Adding a throw to your new look is a great way to tie things together. Or add some new accessories! Accent pieces can be new or reused, mix it up! Rearrange existing accessories and mix in a few new pieces.
Reclaiming your space does not need to take long or cost much. Keep an open mind….find some things you’ve had in storage for a while or some fun summer souvenirs….this may be just what you need to take back your space. Taking back your space can be a fun way to remember all your summer fun as well as a way to look forward to the rest of the year. Besides, Fall is right around the corner, and who doesn’t love the beautiful colors and cooler temperatures that come with it!
