HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR SPACE THIS SUMMER

Summer is here and there are many ways you can welcome it into your house without breaking the bank.  If your goal is to make your space airier, brighter, or freshen things up the following tips will help.

Painting is always an inexpensive option. If you don’t like it, you can always redo it, right? Remember you can paint just one wall, instead of the entire room to freshen up the look. Whether an accent wall, or even painting shapes that define a space, this interior finish can transform a seemingly drab space into a fresh oasis.

Consider adding a mirror. Mirrors can illuminate any space and give it a little sparkle and airiness. They are an affordable option for updating any contemporary space and making it look more expansive, despite any architectural constraints.

Dark colored drapes in heavy fabrics, like velvet, for example, provide good heat insulation during winter, but don’t lend themselves to a light airy summer feel. Replacing your curtains is a sure way to make a huge impact in your space without a big investment.

Change up your accessories and fabrics. Swap dark colored accessories for light, wool throws for linen, down blankets for cotton and it will feel like summer instantly.  Texture plays a significant role not only in our sense of touch but to the eye as well.
