Name three ways readers can update their homes and start fresh in honor of the New Year.

 

First, I would suggest updating fabrics around the house. Switching worn, outdated colors and patterns with brighter, crisper options will give homeowners a fresh perspective for the New Year.

 

Painting is always a great way to make things new again. For an uplifting start to 2015, think about energizing a room with a “Color of the Year” from one of the major paint manufacturers.

 

Rearrange furniture. Move seating arrangements around to make a space feel more inviting. Even relocating pieces to different locations throughout the house brings renewed energy to a home—perfect for ringing in 2015.

 

What are a few home décor-related New Year’s resolutions you’d suggest readers strive to achieve in 2015?

 

  • Reduce visual clutter. We all have mementos and collectibles we like to display to make our house a home; however, not containing them will have the opposite effect and make a space feel uncomfortable. Choose accessories wisely; adding a splash of color and interesting textures to change the tone of a room.

 

  • Everything doesn’t have to match. The key to a casual, comfortable space is to have contrasting elements throughout. Regardless of your style, include pieces that don’t necessarily fit the genre of your design plan; for example: pair modern pieces with traditional to add depth to any room.

 

  • Most importantly, homeowners shouldn’t hesitate to consult with an interior designer regardless of how large or small a project is. Most interior designers are flexible with how they work with clients, and are valuable assets in the pursuit of the perfect design.
