Fall is finally upon us! With the change of seasons not only do we scout out our warm clothing buried in our closets or storage areas but we also feel the need for subtle change in our homes as well. What are some easy ways to revamp our living spaces? Some quick tips I would like to share. Focus on an accent wall. Painting out an entire room can be somewhat tedious and daunting but applying a different color to just one wall will not only bring new life and warmth to the room but will give you a chance to introduce a totally different accent color into the space. Another great easy way to bring about subtle change is to swap out lamp shades! Lamps are not married to their lampshades. It’s just as easy to change these as it is to swap out throw pillows. Contact your local interior designer to provide you with stylish options and to guide you with picking the correct size and shape to fit your lamp base. Have fun with textures and prints with toss pillows, throws and bedding. These are all fun ways to add more of that brand new accent color you’ve just painted. Rugs are another fun easy way to add new color and interest to your new space. Keep in mind that a rug takes up alot of visual space so be careful to coordinate well with the scale of other patterns in the room.Lastly, add new accessories such as vases which can introduce fall foliage,willows are my favorite! Our dining and coffee tables will benefit from a brand new fun seasonal center piece. Think tall to create drama. Don’t forget to add colorful candles and interesting candle holders for intimate mood lighting. I believe in having a great collection of favorite art pieces that we can rotate occasionally and enjoy at different times of the year. Have fun with new placements and layouts. The sky is the limit! Mirrors are my favorite must have change. These are both decorative and functional. Used in the foyer, our guests will certainly notice on entering. The foyer is also a great place to create a wow factor with accessory groupings or interesting lighting. If some or any of these quick tips seem a bit daunting, like not knowing what color to paint that accent wall, contact me or your local Decorating Den Interiors designer to assist with this fun new fall season update! We love styling!
