Erika says “One of the easiest ways to improve on your room’s decor is to add texture. Natural materials quickly add warmth to a space and keeps the scheme from feeling flat.”

Mrs. Ward also adds, “In this vignette, the teak bowl offers warmth, a chunky necklace of painted African wood beads create interest, and slick pottery provides another reflective surface. Live flowers, or any greenery, usher in an element of freshness.”

For the room that is almost done Ariene belives, “I like to start the year finishing rooms that are almost complete.  For example, our guest room has needed drapes for longer than I care to admit, but now I can check them off my list with these vintage drapes. “

To get started refreshing your home Bellizaire says,“One of the easiest things a homeowner can do to freshen a space in the new year is to rethink the room layout! Sometimes we get used to things sitting in a certain spot in a room without realizing that the placement of that item isn’t the most ideal for optimal living in the space. Rearranging the furniture so that traffic patterns are easier, the room has a clearly defined focal point, and (in true Southern fashion) seating is placed in a way that encourages conversation will give your space an instant makeover!
