Hi there! I'm noticing that the days are getting a bit shorter and the temperature a little chillier -- and that means......the holidays will be here soon!
Now is the time to start making some interior design updates if you want your home to look swanky for the holidays!
We recently finished a Quick Style project.....that's an interior design project where we style what you have and add what you need. :) In this case, there were 5 key elements that we focused on in the client's space and I thought I'd share them with you!
1. Reupholstery of Existing furniture
If you have furniture pieces that you love; are from a quality manufacturer; or are family heirlooms, then reupholstery is a great way to get a fresh new look.
The sofa and chairs in the space were given a facelift with new fabric and new interior padding.
Here is a peek of what they looked like before:
2. Update Accent Pillows
Pillows are the easiest way to update your space! Whether they are custom made (which is the priciest way to go) or purchased at a retail shop (lots of options and varying price points), pillows can instantly transform the look of your space.
3. Style Bookcases and Built-ins
I can't emphasize enough that your bookcases should be a place to showcase not only books, but bits about you, your family, your travels, your collections, your history. Incorporate items that you love and create visual balance by varying heights and grouping similar colors.
4. Style your Mantle
Fireplace mantles are a great place to showcase art and decorative objects too. I prefer a little asymmetry on mantles to provide visual interest.
5. Freshen Up your Coffee Table
I love using trays to anchor a vignette on a coffee table. Add fresh flowers and a few decorative objects (again in varying heights) and clear off clutter. :)
