Smarter Home: Three Quick Decorating Tips

Posted by   + Show Post


Looking to brighten up your home without breaking the bank? Here are three easy ways you can decorate without spending a lot of time or money.

Add new color. As spring approaches, freshen up your living room with a dose of color. Decide on a color theme you want to add to the room, and choose a few accent pillows and a new throw blanket. (Bright colors are very ‘in' right now, and this is a great way to stay trendy without making a big commitment-like new furniture or wall color.)

Fresh flowers. An inexpensive bundle of fresh cut flowers can do wonders for a room. It adds color and freshness to a room. (I'm partial to tulips in yellow or white, but use what you love.) Simple arrangements tend to make the biggest impact in a room.

Update the entryway. Usually you walk in the house, kick off your shoes, dump your bag, hang up the kids coats and move on into the house. Update this space, and you'll smile every time you walk in the door. Simple updates include new hooks for kids coats, a new throw rug, and storage bins can do wonders.

What room in your house do you want to update most?

My bedroom or the living room. The living room would be easiest! We need to paint, and I'd like to change the throw rug and pillows and stuff. (I have neutral furniture)

I love fresh flowers, but never buy them for myself.

My hubby loves freecycle.com and craigslist. He always finds me the things I am looking for when I tell him I need it. =]
