- CREATE AN ACCENT WALL
Does the idea of bright color or bold prints overwhelm you? If you tend to play it safe, adding an accent wall to your home is a great way to instantly update the overall vibe and aesthetic. Make a statement in any space with paint or wallpaper- our favorite spots to try this trend are the wall behind a bed, a powder room, or behind a fireplace.

- GIVE TIRED FURNITURE OR CABINETRY A NEW LIFE
For a dramatic change to your space, consider painting older furniture or cabinets in a fresh hue. Even wood-stained cabinetry can be painted when properly prepped.
- UPDATE WINDOW TREATMENTS
For a quick transformation, consider updating or adding window treatments throughout your home. Window treatments elevate your home’s decor, while also adding privacy and saving you money by conserving energy costs.

- ADD A BACKSPLASH
An eye-catching tile backsplash adds a huge upgrade to your kitchen and is a great way to update your home without major renovations.
- UPDATE YOUR FIREPLACE
Refacing your fireplace surround is a fairly small project that can make a big difference in the overall aesthetic of your space. Pick a fun patterned tile to create a focal point, or stick to the classics with a neutral marble slab that will go with any decor. For an even bigger impact, consider painting or replacing the mantle.
