Changing Throw Pillows

You might not think about it often, but when was the last time you changed out your throw pillows? If you cannot remember, it might be a good idea to change them up. Cushions or pillows with removable covers can have their covers replaced, too.

As you think about your pillows, you might consider looking for recycled fabrics and various textures as you experiment with new interior design styles.  If you have always had darker colors, consider choosing light colors instead. Sometimes, florals can also add great pops of color.

Refreshing Towels, Blankets, and Linens

Think about the last time you got yourself some new towels. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think about towels to reinvigorate your décor, but these add color and texture, especially in a guest bathroom.

Guest bathrooms are not usually at the top of the list in changing up interior design styles because, as a homeowner, you probably don’t use it very much – it is out of sight and out of mind. The last time you likely refreshed it was probably a while back, so consider adding new hand towels or new bathroom rugs to spruce it up.

You can do simple updates in your own bathroom and bedroom, like changing your bed’s color scheme or getting new sheets. New blankets or duvets also refresh your space with minimal effort, as can fresh towels in your bathroom.

Choosing New Colors and Textures

Pick some new colors for your home décor items. If you have always had darker colored things, opt for lighter colors. Metallics also add a sense of luxury, so by replacing faucets with burnished bronze or brushed satin, you create an instantly luxuriously feel.

If you don’t mind painting a wall, you can also add an accent wall in a new color and feel like you have a new room over a weekend. Paint the frame on a mirror or a picture on the wall, and add another pop of color that doesn’t take much time or effort.

Updating Light Fixtures

Adding new light fixtures is also an easy addition that does not take more than a few minutes. Incorporating textures and colors in your light fixtures is an easy way to refresh your home’s color and appearance.

Fixtures are in every room in your house, from the kitchen to the hallway to the bathroom. You can do one at a time or devote a weekend to update all of them and be done in a flash. Do not forget, though, if you need to work with any electrical cables, always call an electrician to get it done safely.

Adding Art Pieces

Art adds an extra element of fun and color. Large art pieces become a focal point in a room without overwhelming the space. If you would rather have smaller pieces of art as accent pieces, that is an excellent choice, too.

Adding artistic flair is not limited to paintings or framed pictures. You can add a giant clamshell as a decorative bowl or a sculpture to add a visually intriguing conversation piece. Be creative with what you see as art in your home.

Pillows, throws, various woven textures, and simple upgrades are home décor items that are simple to change.
