Nothing as drastic as buying a new sofa, table lamps or a new rug! I’m talking about a few things you can do today to change up or add to any room that will breath fresh air into your home.


Can we talk about pillows. They are decor magic! Just the thought of them gets me all excited!!! Pillows can brighten up any space! They are an easy, cheery facelift for sofas and chairs. Just think of all the options! I love love love changing pillows with the seasons and holidays.

Add Something Organic

Oh, how I love flowers! And a big vase or container of flowers will certainly make a room come alive!!! Even a grocery store bunch of flowers looks amazing with a little extra care and arranging! But, don’t overlook indoor plants. I feel they have gone out of vogue lately. So sad! Don’t be part of this craze! Add a little pot of ivy or a fluffy pot of herbs and they will literally give life to a room. If you don’t like to care for plants then go faux… but look for great fakes! You don’t want to add any tacky looking fakes to a room!

Add Drapes

Remember that draperies frame the windows, softens them and calls attention to what lies beyond. They add a huge dose of decor beauty to a room! There are so many great, inexpensive draperies that are fun and sassy and updated and will give your room a real upscale look!

Add Fun Art

Art is such a personal thing. Some people like every wall covered with all sorts of pictures and things. And some don’t. I fall somewhere in the middle, like most of us. Over the last few years I have become a fan of making my own art. Not painting it, but making it! Like hanging plates or shutters or a big clock on a wall as art.

Add Texture and Layers

This is probably my very favorite way to add interest to my home. Not only can we feel texture with our hands… we can also feel it with our eyes. A room can seem flat and even a little boring if we don’t fill it with lots of different textures! Soft, smooth, nubby, shiny… are examples of what textures should be in every room! And when we layer those textures, it is pure magic!

Now, head on over to the room you think needs a little decor love and ask yourself, “HOW CAN I BREATHE NEW LIFE IN HERE”? Use these 5 tips to breathe new life into your room!
