It’s mid-January and the start of a new year.
With the festive tinsel, lights and merriment of the holiday season neatly packed away in the basement, your home suddenly looks and feels. . .dull.
You can’t quite get into the spirit of putting up your same old vases and tchotkes back on the mantle. In the light of he new year, the living room furniture you’ve had since the second Bush administration feels old and dated.
Your walls look bare and that metal fixture you once loved now feels so very “2010.”
The bones of your space are good. You don’t need a full-scale remodel. You just need a little “refresh.”
Luckily, we can help with that. Sometimes, in the long winter months that follow the glitzy holiday season, all you need is a “design refresh” in one room or two to make your whole house feel new again!
Simple changes and additions to your decor can really perk up a room–and your mood!
So what is a design refresh? We’ll come into your home and assess the spaces that you’re no longer happy with. We’ll talk budget – which doesn’t have to be huge, by any means – and offer suggestions on how we can help in these areas:
- Rearrange furniture to better fit the scale of your space.
Sometimes all it takes to feel like you’ve made big changes in your home is to look at thing from a different perspective. I can evaluate and rearrange your furniture to make the most of your space with your existing pieces.
- Spruce up the look with fresh paint and a new color palette.
Do your walls seem drab? Are they showing signs of wear with scuffs and scratches? A new coat of paint could be just the thing to freshen up your home. Let me help you find the perfect shade to compliment your style. Then we’ll build a palette for the rest of the room.
- Freshen up the artwork.
It’s important to have a focal piece in a room, but over time we can grow weary of looking at the same thing. A new picture over the mantle, new artwork for the dining room, or new mirror in the entryway can make a room feel brand new! I can help you find a new piece that speaks to you without breaking the bank.
- Liven up your look with new accessories.
It may not seem like a major change to ditch the reliable decor, but you’d be amazed at how big of a difference it can make when you apply the “less is more” rule in this area. I’ll help you decide which beloved accessories to keep, and which to discard. Together, we’ll hunt for new pieces and items that bring you joy, whether that means floor coverings and end tables or throw pillows and lamps.
- Organize with purpose.
Our focus this time of year tends to lean toward tidying and organizing. If you’re feeling the need to organize, we can make that a priority of your room refresh. We can work together to find clever ways to store your items in a way that is aesthetically pleasing and useful.
We spend the most time inside our homes during the cold winter months so it makes sense that we feel the need to make our interior as inviting and cozy as possible during this season. Housebeautiful.com agrees that our surroundings can alter our moods.
Plus, a new year means a fresh start so out with the old and in with the new!
