3)Baskets You don’t have to be a country girl (or guy) to appreciate cozy look of baskets. Even most modern room can benefit from a bit of wood or rattan. But main purpose here is to hide clutter. You’ll feel so refreshed if you add a few baskets to fill with magazines, toys or hobby material. It’s easiest way to contain everyday clutter that you can’t stow away. And clearing space is always a good look!
4)Throw Cushions I’d bet you could find two throw cushions for less than $50, so if you do, add a throw blanket as well. Cheap and shamefully easy, this is way to go if you’re ready to make more of a statement. Great opportunity to bring some contrast into a dull room, consider light pillows for a dark room, dark pillows for a light one, and absolutely try adding a trendy color to a neutral room. And at this price, you can change it next season!
5)Paint Admittedly for more ambitious, this is a fantastic way to create a stunning look in little time. However, this is an article on FAST ideas, so let’s not tackle whole room right now. If company’s coming this weekend, try a new look by painting a feature wall a stunning but complementary color (ie: fireplace wall, that blank wall behind couch…you get idea.) Or even tape off a smaller section (this is called color blocking) to focus attention on a collection of pictures, or behind a mirror, or around fireplace.
To all those with decorating fever, I wish you speedy recovery and an enjoyable project!
