On Tuesday, I promised a post about affordable and quick updates for the home. I scheduled this for yesterday, Thursday October 10... For some reason, I didn't save it so it never posted and...well, here we are.
In the new house, I don't want to abuse color by splashing different colors in every room. Instead, however, I have painted an accent wall in our master bedroom:
A pink ceiling in Munch's room:
and I've got plans to paint a few other accent walls...
Paint is an affordable way to change anything in the home - furniture, walls, picture frames. Spray paint, wall paint, craft paint... It's allllll good!
Move What You've Got
Sometimes I will stare at a wall and think a particular photo would be perfect somewhere else; I move it! Most times it works and instantly gives me the feeling of change I crave without the expense of a redesign.
Pillows can add a pop of color to a space without a serious commitment. Want to incorporate red or orange? Rather than paint a wall, start with a pillow. If you love how the color works, expand it into curtains, rugs, etc.
You know I'm a firm believer in the thrifty lifestyle. Want a quick refresh? Head to your local thrift store with a budget in mind and have at it!
I always feel like a high roller when I'm in the thrift store!
Refreshing your space also refreshes your perspective on home.
Have at it and, most important, have fun!
