2011 - Time for a change

Well 2011 is here! What are your new year's resolutions? The new year is always a great time to refresh, rejuvenate and renew - so why not make some changes to your environment??

You don't need a lot of money or any to make some changes in your space to make it feel fresh and new just some creativity!

Try making your bed in a new way - check out this link for four fun ways to re-dress your bed

Try switching up how you place your pillows and throw blankets on your sofa . Keep pillows and blankets crisp and streamlined for a sleek look or try keeping it more laid-back by placing the pieces in a casual and relaxed way. If you have different size and colour/pattern pillows move them onto other furniture pieces that can really change your room.

You could try moving the furniture in a different placement. for example in the winter position the major pieces so they are facing the fireplace.

Change up your sofa and coffee table decor pieces with items you find around the house. Books, photos, decorative bowls, collectibles like shells etc...can really change the mood and ambiance of the space.

In the kitchen, add some natural elements like bamboo, flowers or even sticks (very low maintenance) on your kitchen island. A fruit bowl can also add colour and a welcoming feeling for guests.

Create a gallery in a hallway or up the stairs using family photos. It's a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by family and a great use of photo frames (I find many people have a bunch lying around that they received as gifts) check out this link for some ideas on how to create a gallery wall

In the bathroom create a display area using basic bathroom items and some empty glass vases. In my bathroom we have an open shelving piece where I mostly have wicker baskets but I kept one shelf open and used glass vases filled with bars of soap, cotton balls and Epsom salts it was easy, inexpensive and gives the space a spa-feel.

Start the new year off with a bang and create a beautiful space that will inspire and refresh the new you!!
