With the everchanging world around us, there are few things that remain the same. From the clothes we wear, to the food we eat, our tastes evolve. Having a comfortable environment to spend your most precious moments and contemplate your most private thoughts is a requirement for us all to enjoy the peace we seek.
There are inexpensive ways to change your home fashions and renew your place of serentiy. Doing something as simple as changing the flower arrangement, switching the kitchen curtains, replacing a plant, or buying a new shower curtain can alter the mood of the room. Whether you like pastels or deep tones, you can find great items at discount stores and resale boutiques if you have a small budget. If your budget is non-existent, then don't fret! Homeade items are making a comeback in this technologically savvy world. Splurge on the flat screen when you can, because it will undoubtedly make everything else look good. Hand made vases, quilts, and pillows can make a statement in your living space that is uniquely yours.
Here are my top 3 picks to make a huge fashion statement with a small wallet.
1. Have you ever been at a friend's house and thought..."I love that chair! It would go great in my living room"? Well maybe it's been 10 years and she is ready for a change. One idea is to have a trade off with your friends for items that you no longer want. Chances are you aren't the only one in your circle who is ready for a change of scenery.
2. Spruce up old picture frames by glueing glass beads or metal findings around the edges. This way you can stick with your current color scheme or switch it up. Use Epoxy!
3. Do you have a table that you love, but it looks worn? You can use sand paper to help it along and create a vintage feel, or you can strip it and paint it a different color.
A simple decor with stylish accents can create an atmosphere full of style and personality. Your home is your self-made castle. Enjoy it!
