Are you spending more time at home these days and realizing that your home lacks that something special? Or maybe you’re just tired of seeing the same old things day after day? Luckily there are a few quick and easy changes you can make to your home that will make your surroundings much closer to that ideal house you’ve always dreamt about.

1. Add some wallpaper


Adding a fun print, or a simple grass cloth can change the dimension of any space that needs an update. Go with something classic like stripes or a subtle geometric. Or maybe try something more whimsical like an ocean motif or bird print. Depending on the space, apply wallpaper to one wall as an accent or even do an entire room for a bold statement. There are so many beautiful and colorful options in the world of wallpaper that your choices are only limited to your imagination!

2. Paint a bold accent color


Pick a piece in your space that could use some attention and paint it a fun contrasting color to its surroundings. This can create excitement in an otherwise bland room. One very popular trend we are seeing these days is to make kitchen island base cabinets a fun contrast to the rest of the kitchen cabinetry.

3. Declutter


I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “less is more.” Over time, things just seem to appear out of nowhere and pile up in our homes without purpose. Try going through your space and eliminating the items that just add visual clutter, and instead strategically place accent pieces that enhance your home. Sometimes just taking time to filter out and rearrange some of your possessions makes all the difference!

4. Add new artwork


A great way to add new colors and life to your home is to switch out some of your artwork. You can group a few frames together in a gallery style or even lean one against a wall for a more casual lived in look. The key is to make sure whatever frame you have chosen is the correct size for the amount of wall space. A vast open wall deserves a larger scale molding profile, and a larger mat if applicable.

5. Add new colorful pillows


What is the easiest way to make you room look refreshed? All you have to do is buy some new accent pillows in cohesive prints and colors. Not only is this a cost-efficient way to change up your look, you can even do this seasonally while incorporating cutting edge design trends- all without a big commitment!
