Easy fixes to update your space

Everyone LOVES a great deal! Everyone also LOVES having beautiful things whether its jewellery, clothing, artwork - everyone loves to have that special piece that makes one ask "where did you get that?" If you want to make your space beautiful without spending a lot of money, here are some simple tips to update your space and make it beautiful!

1. Paint-on architecture. Purchase a blank canvas and paint it in a high impact colour and hang it in an area that will bring attention to your space or if you have high ceilings. You don't need any artistic talent to produce an eye-popping piece of art.

2. Now that spring is here, fill up a vase with natural items - flowers, pussy willows etc... Bring the outside in! Your space will feel more alive.

3. Add a dimmer switch to your existing lighting. You can play with the different levels of brightness in your space and create the mood you want.

4. Change out your existing drawer pulls or knobs for new ones. This simple and inexpensive step can transform a kitchen or a piece of furniture.

5. Re-purpose your artwork. Try moving your art pieces around. Guests will take notice and likely remark on pieces that seem new and how different your space looks.

6. Change your pop up colour. Spring is here and your home should reflect it. Many home improvement stores have easy ways to add some spring into your home. Purchase some decor pillows in a fresh colour, add some candles with a lighter scent (or no scent at all), make a wreath for the front door with some spring colours.

Small changes can really make a big impact and they do not have to cost a lot (or anything at all). Take a walk around your home and see if there are any pieces in your space that you would like your guests to notice - items that you purchased while travelling are great because they are beautiful, they have meaning and a great to story which can be an excellent conversation starter at any party.
