Update key design elements for a whole new look

If last season’s interior looks have you down, give yourself and your home a lift by adding a few new fashionable finds. By switching out key elements, you can create a fresh space without spending a lot of time or cash.

Bright light

Lighting is a sure-fire way to add new life to an old space. Whether you update your ambient or task lighting, there are numerous, attractive selections on the market that are sure to help your design shine.

Fresh fabric

Revive your room with a new slipcover in a trendy pattern to update an old chair or even experiment with a unique wall treatment. Bringing new patterns and tones into a room can give your space a fresh feel.

Down under

Replacing your flooring may not be an option, but adding a decorative rug is not only affordable, it is also a wonderful way to elevate your room’s style.

Hang-ups

Adorn your walls with new, cool colors without ever lifting a paintbrush. Incorporating paintings, prints and other wall accessories into your design scheme will help update your home’s hues and add dimension to your space.

Big picture
