Five tips for your living room to create a new look on the cheap.
Replace accent pillows with current colors Accent pillows transform a room and they don’t have to be expensive. I prefer to mix solids and prints that coordinate. Blues, teals, greens, yellows and colors from nature will work with any home for spring/summer.
Add a 5x7 decorative rug under a coffee table Rugs are the number one transforming accessories, they look great over carpet, tile or wood flooring. The days are gone of having to buy expensive rugs. Rugs can be purchased for $60. Check with your local value stores and change them with the season.
Remove all fake flowers Fake flowers are dust collectors. Don’t hang them over your doors, pictures, curtain rods, etc. This look has been out of style for years. If you like fake flowers and they make you happy spend the extra money and have one professional arrangement.
Reduce items on your coffee table Often times a coffee table becomes the dumping ground for sale papers, magazines, toys, remotes and more. Purchase a baskets for magazines and remotes and keep decorative items in groups of three.
Rearrange accessories you love that have been in the same place for years Rearranging and repurposing accessories you love will give them new life. Collections are nice but sometimes less is best and it’s easier to dust.
