3 Easy Transformations You Can Do Tomorrow!
January 18, 2021
Transformation takes all shapes and forms. Although it would be wonderful... all transformations don't have to be this big!
In this case, our client wanted to add wood floors, paint her home, change up her kitchen, and create a cozy, comfortable room for entertainment! What a fun project and a fabulous client. While a significant transformation might not be in the cards right now... How about three easy things you could do tomorrow to create your transformation?
Taking just a little time to make improvements could be just the thing you need to give yourself a burst of good energy!
1) Transform Your Walls
Painting, of course, is such an easy way to transform and update your space. But that takes more than the day that I promised. Instead, why not think about changing or adding a piece of artwork to an important room in your home.
Artwork gives a room a sense of completeness and luxury... and can transform an ordinary space into a beautiful haven. Many people think that their artwork has to match the architectural style of their home. Actually, contemporary art can be great in a traditional setting and will often have more impact than a more traditional piece.
I love the bold modern look of this piece. It would draw you right into a room in a great way. Don't be intimidated when it comes to buying art... it's not about the style or price; it's about what you love.
2) Transform Your Cocktail Table
I need to take my advice on this one. I've had the same display on my coffee table for some time now. It is time to reboot my coffee table. It can just take minutes to add some new personality to your living space. Find an interesting ceramic piece, or grab a beautiful book that may have been tucked away.
Keep the power of three (or odd numbers) when creating your arrangement. Three objects in a cluster are instantly viewed as a carefully edited display rather than a random concoction...whether that is on your coffee table or fireplace mantle. Try objects of subtly different lengths or widths for maximum effect.
3) Transform Your Pillow Story
Changing up your pillows is one of the most effortless transformations of all. There is no reason not to change your pillow story seasonally. Going from lighter weight, casual fabrics in the warmer months to heavier, comfortable, and ornate pillows to reflect the winter months and the holiday season.
One pair of pillows on your sofa looks a bit scarce. We like odd numbers on sofas in contrasting textures and patterns. Few things can change the look of a living room as quickly as exciting pillows. So pile them on!
