1. Shine a new light
One of the easiest ways to change the look and ambiance of any space is to shine some interesting light. Try adding new and trendy wall sconces, or a modern table lamp to add a touch of visual interest. Finally get along to installing those recessed lights and switching out the chandelier like you’ve always wanted.
2. Accessorize it up
More often than not rooms can be beautifully designed but are just lacking that personal touch. Try adding accessories and plants around a room. A small plant, modern vase of branches, or even a large palm can fulfill that inexplicit void in a space. Hanging a mirror, displaying a large piece of pottery or appealing artwork, can create a new focal point in a room.
3. Trim, Trim, Trim
Give the room a finished and cohesive look. Add a decorative crown molding and base board to a space. This will allow the walls to appear clean and united, and serves as a nice frame for the room.
4. Paint it bright
Don’t ever be afraid of adding some color to your world. If your walls at home are bare white, try coating them with a soft neutral to start off…or have a little fun with bright, saturated accent walls. A great and modern technique is to paint your ceiling…this creates a more open and vibrant space, or can allow it to feel much more intimate.
5. Rearrange that furniture
You know it’s been sitting in the same spot for long enough. Try rearranging the furniture to suit the lifestyle you are living today. You’d be surprised how the simple rearrangement of a chair or love seat introduces an entirely different feel and function of a space. Additionally, it allows for a less cluttered mind and relieves psychological anxiety.
