Once of the secrets of home decor retail is to rearrange the merchandise in the display area. Even the most frequent shopper will find something they didn’t notice on their last shopping trip! The same principle is true in your home – rearrange a few things and you’ll feel like you’re living in a completely redecorated space! Rearranging furniture makes a huge difference, but a refreshed look can be achieved by simply rearranging the accessories!
I have shared my entry way decor many times over the life of this blog. If you look at the pictures, you’ll notice many of the same pieces are used over and over. Once you’ve lived in your home for a few years, it shouldn’t take much money to give a brand new feeling to a space. I did pick up a few new pieces recently, and you’ll see them here with all the usual suspects. Those white candlesticks are quite the popular items – rarely ever do they not appear somewhere on this table.
I also refreshed my coffee table for the summer months, following the usual styling method that I shared here. My husband likes to flip through the Trivial Pursuit cards while we’re watching TV, so I corralled them in a pretty tea cup. I had to pull that plant from the hall bath…so I ended up re-doing a few things in there as well. It happens! 🙂
The total cost of refreshing my living room? Less than $30! I picked up a few things here and there over the past several months and ended up with a great new feel for the room!
