Tips for Redecorating

With our house almost ready for the market (pictures forthcoming), I wanted to give you some quick redecorating tips I've found useful the past several weeks. I've put several to work for us and I think they have made a huge difference in the before and after.

Have fun with them by mixing and matching patterns with solids in order to create contrast. picture courtesy of Southern Accents Dress up plain curtains with trim or ribbon. You can trim the sides, stitch it straight through the middle or create a color block at the bottom to add length. It will help provide unity in your space and give you custom curtains without the heavy price tag! picture courtesy Better Homes and Gardens Add color and interest to any space with mirrors and picture frames. This is one of my "go to" methods for creating interest in a space. You can use spray-paint to add color to mismatched frames. Combine different shapes and sizes of frames to spice it up a bit! And, you don't have to use photographs--you can print inspirational quotes or use your initial--simple and fun! picture courtesy of Cottage Living Turn your ottoman into a coffee table--top it off with a cute tray, some flowers, books or even kids toys. It helps make the room feel lived in and cozy!
