Stay on a budget by refreshing your accent pillows. New throw pillows are one of the easiest ways to update a living room.
Throw pillows are a great way to add trendy looks without a long-term commitment.




With solid color furniture, mix and match patterns and textures with single color pillows in contrasting hues.
Try searching for a variety of throw pillows at your local Homegoods. Look for a range of sizes to create a cozy pillow arrangement on a sofa.
These little details have a big impact on how your space looks and feels.


In your living room and dining room turn up your neutral color palette a notch by adding some pop of color
For a versatile color that’s not neutral, blue is your next best bet.





However, any color can be used as an added color to make a room really pop. Also, try layering different shades of the color of your choice for a new chic look.

For an elegant look in a living room or dining room start with a pair of matching lamps placed on each end of a table and arrange a few accessories in the middle. Center a large piece of artwork or mirror above to create a focal point that helps draws attention.DIY design projects are another great way to transform furniture items in any room. Updating furniture definitely works and helps to make drastic updates without breaking a budget. Refresh a living room with an accent wall. Painting an accent wall will cost sufficiently less than the cost of painting the entire living room. Hiring painters can become costly. The fee to hire painters typically does not include the cost of paint or additional areas like ceilings and trim. A budget-friendly solution is to create a  statement wall. Rearranging furniture is no doubt the least expensive way to update a room because it’s totally free! Moving the furniture around gives your room a whole new look without spending a dime. If you’re not prepared to move all the furniture try rearranging your accessories and bookshelf displays. You’d be surprised at what a big impact it can have.




Home offices can be neglected when it comes to decorating, but it doesn't take much to freshen an outdated workspace.  One of the joys of working from home, whether you do it occasionally or full time, is the freedom to fix up your office the way you want it. You can turn the standard office look into a chic and feminine home office. To do this simply add a plant, and fresh or faux flowers for added color and to make your office more interesting looking. Choose no more than three colors, with one being a neutral for a soft touch of color. For storage add bookcases, or a chest/dresser and top them with a pair of lamps and cute accessory items. For an additional refresh add wall decor as well as curtains that compliment your offices’ color palette.



Follow these simple and easy steps to achieve the perfect refresh for any of these rooms on a budget.
