Renew Yourself And Your Home In Four Easy Steps

A few months into the new year, your resolutions may have already fallen by the wayside. Your gym pass is getting dusty, you haven’t learned to play tennis and your house looks the same as it did before the holidays. But as spring approaches, the motivation to improve your home d├ęcor may return.

Even if you’ve abandoned other New Year’s resolutions, fear not, because the transition of seasons is a perfect opportunity to refocus on improving yourself and your space.

Repaint & Refresh

One of the easiest and quickest ways to refresh the look of your home is with paint. Repainting any room will instantly transform it into a showpiece of your style and taste, while giving you control over the mood of the space. Keeping up with the latest movement in the world of interior design, Pratt & Lambert Paints recently released its 2013 Color Trends Forecast, which juxtaposes dark and light, bold and subdued and bright and pastel. Highlighting the distinct moods and styles of the everyday and elevating the sensory experience, each of the four collections showcases how contrasting colors can form a very balanced design scheme, perfect for a fresh, balanced start to a new season. Whether you choose from the Phenomena, Vestiges, Dialects or Curated palette, your renewed room will see the rich color saturation and lasting quality Pratt & Lambert is known to provide. With the help of a skilled painting contractor and the right color selections, in a matter of hours, you can transform any room into a reflection of your personal style and panache.

Cover Corrections

Lighting in a room can completely change the way it looks and feels, and you can easily change a room’s entire aura by adjusting how it’s lit. A visit to any home store’s lighting section will reveal seemingly endless options. Change out a dull overhead light with an elaborate chandelier for a turn-of-the-century look. Standing floor lamps are available in nearly any finish and style and are perfect for a sitting or living area, while wall sconces can create a soft, romantic glow while saving floor space. If you’re not ready to purchase new lighting elements, you can easily renew the look of your space by updating lamp shades, painting the bases or simply rearranging freestanding lights.

Accessorize

Little things can make a biggest difference, and putting finishing touches on a space will give it personality, making it your own. Changing or adding decorative rugs, pieces of art, throw pillows and other furnishings can completely change the feel of a room. Experiment with different styles and materials throughout the room, but avoid going overboard with too many knick-knacks, which can create a cluttered, crowded feel. You can also give your home additional sensory appeal by adding aromatic candles or stylish oil diffusers, instantly creating a more inviting space.

With a few focused efforts, you can say goodbye to winter in style, and create a rejuvenated home you’ll be proud to show off throughout the year to come.
