I am always looking for new and exciting ways to update not only clients’ homes but also my own. Buying all new pieces for a space isn’t the only way to make an impact. Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration.
1. Staging your tables
In your living room, you may have console tables, side tables, coffee tables, and perhaps even built-ins. Don’t ignore these pieces, instead, gather picture frames with family photos, lamps, figurines given to you by your grandmother, trays, your favorite books, and anything else you think you might want to display. Begin with the bigger pieces, and begin layering and stacking trays and books. Grouping smaller items together will help to make a bigger impact than letting them stand-alone.
Updating old pieces and giving them new life is one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways give your room an update. Painting wood pieces such as tables and shelves will give them a much-needed face-lift. If you have a lamp base that you love but the shade is lacking, replace it, this will give you an opportunity to add more texture, color, or pattern. You can even paint accessories, little touches really can make a huge difference.
