So it’s the new year, and you want a new look (but maybe you don’t have the budget!). Here are a few cost effective ways to change up your interior for 2017:
Paint is the easiest way to make a big impact. If you’re willing to put in some sweat equity, you can completely change a room for $50 or less. If you’re not sure which direction to go, head straight to the back of the paint deck. Benjamin Moore’s Historical Collection are all beautiful, safe choices. If you want to go gray and aren’t sure, HC-172 Revere Pewter is stunning. In general, light colors make a room look larger, and darker will give a more cozy feel.
I’ve done this several times with our formal living room. If you’re tired of the look, completely change your pillows. There is quite a bit on sale right now thanks to after holiday deals. These are currently an extra 40% off the sale price. I recommend these to clients ALL THE TIME.
I’m a big fan of strategic styling and I tend to freshen up our coffee tables quite a bit. Add a new tray and some fresh flowers from Trader Joe’s. Move some candles around or add a fresh stack of books. Even the smallest changes can help keep it fresh.
If you have the time and motivation, throw up some paint and do a Target run. Little changes can go a long way!
Happy 2017 to you!
