Throw pillows are one of the best ways to update your space. A simple color change can really transform a room.

A simple change like painting the walls can make a tremendous difference! Get some paint swatches and see what color will look best with your existing furnishings and theme of your home. If you are working with a little space, go for lighter colors that will make the room appear bigger. If the space is large, have some fun with the paint! A popular new trend is painting the room one color, and making a focus wall with a different color. This fun trend adds dimension to your space!

Pictures and Art
Invest in a few beautiful pieces of art! It is amazing what filling up a wall with something beautiful can do. Look for art that is in a similar color scheme to your space, and maybe look for a pop of color that will match the current interior! If you don’t want to splurge on art, buy a few fun picture frames and print some photos of family and friends. This will add a personal and colorful touch to your space and make it yours!
