Quick and Simple Painting Tips

If you're moving into a new home, or simply want a change, painting your walls is a great way to make a home your own. Make sure you pick colors that match your furniture, or else replace some items to give your house a nice, cohesive look.

Choose your paint color: If you are painting as part of your Style Cure, now is the time to make the call on the color. This is an exciting moment! If you collected your chips this weekend, I'm guessing that you already have narrowed things down to your favorite. If not, take some time today and go through them again, look at them next to existing items in the room, tape or pin the swatches up in a few spots and see what speaks to you.

Don't be afraid to embrace what feels right. You can be confident that you are ready to choose. During the first seven days of the Cure, you've been doing quite a bit of really looking and thinking about design, while taking and collecting appealing images. You already know what you want and now, you just have to name it.

Think about a Decor "Pairing": While painting is probably the most powerful tool in a room refresh, your Cure will be more successful if you take on (at least) one other update to work on that will help to "complete" the room, just as a well-chosen wine does for food. This decor "pairing" can be large or small, a purchase or a diy project. Tomorrow, we can get into those details.

3 Quick Redecorating Tips

Summer is in full swing, and it's a great time to open the windows and let the sunlight brighten up your home. It's also a great time to take a quick inventory of your house to see what's hot, and what's not. Here are 3 decorating tips that can help make your home feel new and fresh!

3. Add Complimentary Colors
A great way to compliment the color in your home is to find a rug for each room that matches in the perfect way. Think of it like adding harmony to a chorus: one tone off, and it might not work out. But if you get the colors just right, your rooms will have an amazing color scheme!

2. Replace the Old Couch 
We all own a couch that was given to us, purchased many years ago, or else mysteriously ended up in our home. It's time to replace it with something new and comfortable to make the entire house look and feel better!

1. Get New Lighting
A simple touch of light here and there will do wonders to your home, both by shedding a perfect mood at night, and by presenting a nice feel during the day.

3 Tips to Accent your Home

Every now and then, we all get a little bored with our home decoration. Whenever this happens there is a fun opportunity to mix up your surroundings and try something new! Start by reorganizing your furniture, then try to get a few new items to make your home feel new. Here's three things that might help with your renovation:

3. Rugs
A new rug might seem like a small adjustment, but it can really change a room's dynamics. Whether it it is as new style, texture, or color, a new rug will change the entire way you look at your house!

2. Throw Blankets
People often forget how amazing throw blankets can be, especially when they match the rugs, walls, or other furniture.

1. Bar or Dining Room Table
Many often say the most important room in the house is the kitchen, but we think it is actually where you spend time eating the food. Deck out your home with a stylish new table set to make your renovation more palpable!

Moving Season: Perfect Time for Change

Summers are traditionally the busiest times for landlords, as most leases tend to end between May and September. If you are moving this summer, it's a good idea to take a look at what you have, what you want to keep, and what you need to replace. Here are three pieces of furniture to consider replacing on your next move.

1. Bedding
Sheets and pillow cases are often ignored when they are in serious need of being replaced. If you start to notice any small tears, thinness in the fabric, or even unsightly stains, it is time to chuck out the old, and get some new sheets! Moving time is perfect for grabbing new sets, as you can get rid of your old sheets before you move and not have to carry any extra boxes to your new apartment.

2. Rugs
We all have that rug that we love to death, but sometimes you need to step back and take a look at what you're walking on. See the fraying edges? The stains? If so, it's time to get new rugs. Don't toss an old, unseemly rug in your new home or apartment, instead decorate in style with a fresh look!

3. Chairs
Do you ever find yourself in a chair that constantly squeaks, is fading, or has cracks in the wood? Moving time is perfect for replacing these, as the chairs might not even survive the trip in the moving truck. Brand new chairs will not only offer better (and quieter) comfort, but they will also give you a touch of style in your living room, kitchen, or dining room.
