A different view may open your eyes! We often find ourselves looking for a change in our homes or in life in general and the list of what needs to be changed can grow quickly. One thing leads to another and before you know it, you've become bogged down by a growing number of fairly significant habits to stop/start or items to remove/replace.
When it comes to changing our home's interior decor, most have the mindset that to make a change, it's “out with the old and in with the new” - but in many cases we can achieve as much with a small change to the old.
With the Summer months upon us, now is a great time to consider making changes to our indoor living spaces as we're finally able to enjoy the outdoors – no need to worry about a room being briefly 'under construction' – let us help with the inside while you relax outside!
Replace or Renew? Sometimes a simple rearrangement is all it takes!
Our home decor is something we see day in and day out. We chose 'just the right pieces' to make the room fit our eye in fashion and function, but eventually it becomes stale, worn out or dated and it's time for something new. That something new doesn't have to mean a replacement and related costs – why not take a look at changing the placement of a few items and the focal point of the room?
Swapping the placement of your couch, loveseat and coffee table is a great way to give a room a fresh feel. Take a look at your accessories as well – moving a piece of artwork, a group of candles or a plant from one side of a room to another or in to another room altogether will give the piece and the room new life – no need to endlessly add accessories and potentially clutter the space!
Discard to De-Clutter? Why not start a rotation?
It's often hard to let go of accessories and pieces of decor that were chosen after much consideration. We've all seen rooms of our own (or those of others) that start out being very deliberate and minimal, but over the years more accessories catch our eye and are added to the space. Before you know it you've got accessories and accent pieces that no longer compliment the room or each other!
Why not make a seasonal rotation? Throw blankets and heavier window coverings that make us feel cozy in the winter can be swapped out for something lighter and more airy in the warmer months. There's no need to get rid of an all season item after finding another all season item – designate it for one season and switch in another until that season rolls around again!
Where to start? The value of experience.
Changing a view, de-cluttering or re-arranging a space with a few minor alterations can be easier said than done. We've all had that moment of frustration wondering 'Okay, where to start?'. Like in many aspects of life, the help of professionals can go a long way!
