These days, you can’t turn on the TV without stumbling upon a show about home makeovers. Sure, the homes end up looking beautiful, but at what price? Usually one that’s way too high for most people. That’s where simply accessorizing your home can give you the look of a makeover, for less. Here are 4 easy tips for doing it right:
#1 Pillows Aplenty
Bring an instant pop of color, texture and coziness to a room with pillows. Pile them onto a bed, space them out on a sofa or simply place one on a side chair. Pillows are not only versatile, they’re incredibly affordable—and they give any room in the house a quick new look.
#2 Top Your Tables
A lot of us are too busy trying to put food on the table to think about what else should go on there. Fact is, every tabletop is an opportunity to add personality to a room. So make a statement with a stack of thick art books, bring the outside in with a few potted plants, or just fill a beautiful bowl with your favorite colorful fruit.
#3 Celebrate the Seasons
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall aren’t just for enjoying outside your home. By colorizing according to the time of year—and even the temperature—you can show your true love of the seasons. Introduce pastels during spring, darker hues during colder months and bright, beachy tones during summer.
#4 Pouf Perfection
Like pillows with more prominence, poufs can add a new dimension—not to mention more seating—to virtually any space. They come in a host of hues and patterns to match your style, from understated to eye-catching.
So next time you start dreaming about a home makeover, wake up to a smarter way of changing things up. Accessorizing is not only fun and inexpensive, you can do it all year round.
