I believe we all want to enjoy our homes without spending too much time in keeping up with decorating. Decorating can many times be very time consuming and tiring when you do not have a guide or ‘game’ plan. And a game can quickly get very b-o-r-i-n-g (yawn!) when it consists of the same plays over and over and zzzz … again!

Unfortunately some people tend to place a décor and not move it until 7 years later (a big no no in my book!). That doesn’t describe you, does it?!

So how can you upkeep your home looking freshly dazzled with your style? Here are some quick decorative touch ups that will dazzle your home every single time you incorporate them:

  1. Re-arrange your furniture location! If you feel that your heavy furniture pieces (sofa, bed, dining table, etc.) are in the perfect spot, then move the items surrounding your heavy furniture items – such as: your living room side table may go well in your bedroom and your nightstands may dazzle in your living room!
  1. Changing your décor seasonally! Display winter accessories in the “winter” and summer ones in the “summer” .. or hey, maybe even vice versa as long as it is a ‘change’ where you feel a difference seasonally. Changing accessories seasonally revitalizes us!

 Seasonally I suggest you change the following:

-          pictures of friends, family, and events

-          artwork location

-          curtains (even shower curtains!!!)

-          pillows on your sofa

-          bedding (have at least a set for each season)

-          area rug ‘location’

-          lamp shades

-          accessories on bookshelves

Remember, many times all you need to do to dazzle a room is ‘change location’ of the items instead of running off to buy new items. For example:

Area rug: perhaps you can incorporate moving an area rug from the dining room to the living room or from the living room to the bedroom to dazzle your room with a fresh look using an old item.

Lighting: maybe you have different lamp bases, but with similar shade sizes – if so, you can simply swap the shades from one base to another and dazzle your room with illuminated cool new to-the-room (wink wink!) style shades.

Curtain: perhaps you can add straps that hold/tie your curtain panels in the center or stiebacks that hold the curtain panels to the side. Try also changing the ‘color’ of the straps seasonally to make a visually dazzling impact.

The important tip to remember is to make it ‘seasonally’ different and special to you and your home will dazzle and illuminate your personality!
