“Company’s coming and my place doesn’t look right…”
You know how it goes, you have visitors coming tonight. You’ve cleaned every room in house (well, maybe not bedroom). You’ve planned menu, and…it’s just not quite right. Perhaps you’ve been hankering for a change or maybe it strikes you out of air, room needs Something, but what?
Here’s five fast tips for when that re-decorating demon strikes and you haven’t budget or time to do much.
You can likely do all of these ideas for significantly less than $50, but because they are simple, I’ll explain along way what makes difference.
1)Fresh Flowers You don’t need a $50 bouquet to make a room, but a stale look will get an instant boost with a bit of living, breathing, greenery. Consider a $20 tropical, large enough to fill in an empty corner, and spend another $20 on a colorful bunch of fresh cut flowers (if you shop well, you can even get vase). This will give your room instant punch!
2)Bowl of Fruit & Table Cloth If you’re at market anyway, don’t overlook zest and color that a large bowl of fresh fruit lends to kitchen, dining room, or even coffee table. Great look that works well in all decors; fill a pottery dish with a variety, or a tall glass vase with a single fruit (ie: lemons or limes) or even line up a row of green apples along coffee or dining table for a contemporary feel. And since fruit is inexpensive, give yourself a shot of change by selecting a new table linen in trendiest color of season to give your room a real lift or invest in a crisp white or cream cloth for a classic look.
