THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY!

Summer fun is in full swing and the days are swooshing by much too quickly!  But there is still time to fit in some quick d├ęcor freshening tips to perk up any room that perhaps is looking a bit tired.

PAINT

A simple fresh coat of paint is transforming!  Choosing a neutral is always safe and makes a classic backdrop for many, many accent colors.  Try the newest neutral…..grey!  Unsure of what shade?  MariaKillam.com and her Color Me Happy blog is a great color expert to consult!

WINDOWS

Clear away dark and dingy with fresh and light neutrals at the windows! The light shining through your window openings should illuminate your room and help create charm and atmosphere.

Neutrals are always a safe choice and blending backdrop, but don’t be afraid to venture into color as the effect can be dramatic!  Check out the variety of possibilities at Hunter Douglas.com!

A TOUCH OF GREEN LIFE

A designer friend recently reminded me of the importance of a living presence in a room.  If you have a green thumb, certainly add a potted plant for texture as well as its natural air filtering qualities! A few branches in a glass vase are a quick and simple statement of design and easily changeable and low maintenance for those of us with no green thumb!

PILLOWS

This is an extremely fun and easy accessory to use for seasonal accents!  Pillows, even in the most neutral rooms, can add color, texture, focal point, and impact!
