If you live all over your house, indoors and outdoors, giving any room in a face lift will give it that “New” Home look. Repurposing furniture, adding new pieces, paint and a new colour scheme will brighten up any room and breathe new life into the old pieces of furniture sitting in your basement or attic as well. Or you can choose to buy some new pieces furniture to change the look!
Spending more time and living outdoors is one of the popular ways to spend early mornings or restful evenings. Invest in some quality pieces of outdoor furnishings. If you have a wooden deck, strip it down to the good looking wood and refinish with quality stains or deck paint. Outdoor area rugs are an excellent idea to set that area apart and create a “cozy” and intimate feel. A few accent tables and lots of pillows help to create the indoor look outside.
Using natural woods indoors helps add a “warm” feeling to any room. Wicker, rattan, oak, pine and other uses of mixed woods creates a nature look. Your colour palette should include blues, greens as well as other nature-based colours that occur naturally in nature. Add lots of plants to your décor; this rounds out the look very nicely. Choose a neutral colour area rug in thus allowing the other colours to work together and create a serene, peaceful look to your home.
Every home should have a beautiful getaway, such as this simple yet elegantly library, complete with a leather reading chair and oversized fireplace. Neutral greys and light colour wood floors makes you want to cozy up to the fireplace with a good mystery novel, reading until you fall asleep in front of the warm glow of the fire.
