Breathe new life into your home this spring!
Refresh Your Space.
As you consider the task to refresh your space, it may be difficult to know where to put your dollars and get the most “bang for your buck.”
With a little creative thinking and by following the ‘Three R’s,’ (refurbish, repaint, recycle), you can accomplish a LOT when it comes to decorating your home/apartment on a budget.
Refurbish – Being eco-friendly takes simple smarts and small steps. By reusing items such as old furniture, frames and artwork, you can save money and be mindful about saving our planet!
Look for the pieces you love, and could love even more with a fresh splash of paint! You can refinish wood furniture with a stain or gloss, or paint metal with acrylics. Some fresh color is an affordable way to dramatically transform a space.
Re-paint – Adding an accent color can really make a room pop!
Consider forging the commitment of transforming an entire wall and instead, refinish an existing piece with a crisp hue. Even a dark color can be a refreshing break and can create a perfect canvas for a ‘statement wall,’ such as this one designed by Vanessa De Leon. So cool!
Re-cycle – De-clutter and let the sunshine in! Re-organize the old carpets or ditch them altogether; making your space feel bright and maybe even larger – Refresh your space!. Instead of buying new furniture, consider getting your favorite pieces reupholstered. Liven up your doors with some unique door handles, or change out your old lampshades to let a new kind a light fill the room.
The canvas of your space, is one to design the life you love – have fun with it!
