Quick Home Makeover Ideas for Any Occasion
There may be a number of reasons your homes needs a makeover. If you’re selling your home or just want to prepare for all those holiday visits coming up soon (very soon!) you may not have time for a total re-do. So what can you do if you need to redecorate your home fast? Here are a few quick and easy tips to give your home a fresh new look in a flash:
“Paint stripes on your ceiling. Leave the base white, then choose a color a shade off from a color already present in the room. Stripes create movement and energy. It’s a delightful surprise.” -Kelly Wearstler
“Consider setting the furniture—and the carpet—on an angle. It will change the whole dynamic of a room.” -Vicente Wolf
“If your bookshelves look bland, paint the back and sides a contrasting color. Pick up the color across the room with an accent pillow or a throw.” -Connie Beale
“Buy a tree in a basket or planter and put it in your loneliest corner. I love a fiddle leaf fig for its sweet platypus bill-like leaves. If you want to go the extra mile, stick some uplights behind it.” -Celerie Kemble
“If you want a little drama in your life, change the color of your lampshades to black. Much more dramatic, and it creates lovely pools of light—along with a little punctuation—in a room. Line the shades in gold paper to add a little sparkle.” -Jennifer Garrigues
“Paint your baseboards a contrasting color such as Spanish brown or dark gray. It’s like applying eyeliner—it will make the wall pop. Plus, it won’t show scuffs.” -Thomas Jayne
