Revamp Your Home for the Holidays 2

With Simple Updates

It’s not too late to make easy changes before your Holiday guests arrive. These simple updates will make your home feel fresh without remodeling.

Want to add life to your walls but not ready to completely repaint? Create an accent wall with paint or wallpaper.  Bold navy or rich emerald green complement many color schemes but also add warmth and depth to a room.  A textured or printed wallpaper shows off your personality, consider something quirky that makes you happy! Want something specific? Talk to a faux finisher. They can create anything you dream up and it’s unique to your home.

The powder bath is a busy place as all your guests will be in there at some point. Replacing your countertop and faucet are small changes that make a big impact. Many granite installers will have remnants for a lower price that are ideal for a small vanity. This is the perfect room to do something daring on the countertop and a statement faucet for that WOW factor your guests will be talking about.

Your family room is where everyone will gather after dinner to watch football or a classic Holiday movie so make it comfortable and stylish! Spice up your bland sofa with vibrant throw pillows. Add softness with a throw blanket draped over an armchair so it’s within reach when you’re ready for that afternoon nap.  Replace a solid colored rug with an unexpected pattern.  Complete the room with a new piece of art that pulls it all together. By mixing the new with the old, your space will feel fresh but still feel like home.

Hardware and lighting are the jewelry of your home….Make them shine! Bronze, silver and gold are all on trend but also timeless. Blending “new” traditional and transitional styles throughout your home keep you from getting bored with the same look without getting too contemporary. Mix and match the metals to create interest and drama. Still stuck on how to make these styles and finishes work within your home? Talk with a designer who can help pull your home together so you can finally impress your opinionated in-laws.
