Just as you might be looking forward to putting away those winter sweaters and digging out your spring wardrobe, did you ever wish you could outfit your favorite space with a fresh look without replacing everything? Swapping out a room’s accessories is a quick and easy way to update a space and have it feel new again.
Change out a few pieces of artwork, add some colorful vases, or replace an area rug to produce a dramatic change in a room. Toss those standard pillows that came with your sofa and replace them with pillows that boast color and pattern to create a fresh look and feel.
And it’s not just about color, it’s also about texture and shine. What about bringing in a few metallic accents with wall mirrors or picture frames? The subtle shimmer adds elegance as well as a little bling!
And the best part is you can store these accessories away when autumn rolls around and look forward to pulling them out next spring to refresh your room once again.
Take a quick look around at your space… what simple changes can you make to add a vibrant and inspiring touch of spring to your home? The change will brighten your day and help to rid the winter blues.
When grouping accessories together, vary their size and height. This goes for candles, framed photos, vases or any other accent pieces. Mixing size, height, and texture adds visual interest to your design. Also, use odd numbers when placing multiple objects in a group.
It is just as disastrous to have the wrong accessories in your room as it is to wear sport shoes with an evening dress.
