Is your home in need of a décor refresh just in time for summer? Enliven a few key rooms in your home in no time with these quick and easy additions. From a coat of paint to a rearranged coffee table, these details will have your house feeling new and improved for this season and beyond.
The Perfect Paint
Use the power of paint to spruce up your home from the inside out! Try a coat of paint in a bright, cheerful color on a door or doorframe for instant pizazz. Other surprising, interesting places to try out a new color include the mantle, the kitchen cabinets or even stationary bookshelves.
If your entryway isn’t already decorated, this is a great place to start as you spice up your space. The entryway not only informs a guest’s first impression of your home, but it also sets the tone for the rest of the rooms. To make your entry stand out, experiment with a fun printed rug or a decorative side table topped with a fresh flower arrangement.
Mirrors of any size and shape are an effective way to bring new life to your home. Hang a decorative, circular mirror over the mantle as a centerpiece, or a large, floor-length mirror in a small room to visually expand the space. Instead of using an empty wall for art, you could use it to hang various sizes of mirrors in a gallery-style installation.
A fabulous light fixture is a great way to dress up an otherwise dull room. Once you determine the room you’re working with, choose a light fixture that’s proportionate to that space. As for style, you’ll want something that stands out, yet fits the existing aesthetic. Hang a small, charming chandelier in a powder room or laundry room for a touch of glamour. Install a pair of rustic, antique sconces on either side of your traditional mantle for a beautiful mashup of styles.
Sometimes a simple rearrangement can make a world of difference! If you’re feeling up for a challenge, try rearranging an entire room to give yourself a new perspective on a space. Otherwise, settle for an expertly styled surface. In the living room, top your coffee table with a decorative tray filled with a few coffee table books, a candle and a vase of fresh flowers. In the kitchen, try a wide, shallow bowl filled with oranges or other citrus fruits. The color and fragrance will certainly lighten the mood of any passerby.
