Have family coming to visit? About to host a dinner party? Tired of coming home to the same place everyday? We have all been there! Much like your wardrobe, your home will need a bit of a refresh every now and then to keep with current trends and styles, and to brighten your mood. Updating your home doesn’t have to be a big expense, or take up a great deal of time. Check out some of the tips below to get started on your refresh without being overwhelmed, or breaking the bank.

1. Focus on one space at a time. Taking on too many projects at once will be overwhelming and it will seem like an endless and daunting task. Start with the rooms you spend the most time in, like your living room and dining room and decide how you’d like to update them style wise.

2. Small changes make a big impact: Change out rugs, throw pillows and decor for a new colour theme and a new feel. Simple and inexpensive changes can make a big impact to any space. Even just introducing a scented candle into a room can change the atmosphere.

3. Add a WOW piece: Take the time to put together one great statement piece for the room. Introducing a noticeable centerpiece can update the room and give it a fresh feel.

4. Light it up!: Introducing lighting is a great way to create a whole new mood in any room. The brighter the lighting the airier and fresher a room will feel. Create a cozy vibe with dim lighting. Lamps can also be a piece of art through an interesting base or shade and even add a pop of colour to keep the theme cohesive.
