New Year New Look

Now that Christmas and the holiday season is over, the decorations are safely tucked away, are you looking around your home and seeing emptiness and almost a feeling of lifelessness? It may be time to make just a few simple changes, to bring some life back into your home.
Can’t afford to redecorate? Take a look at how you live and what you have. Rearrange your furniture to better suit your lifestyle. Chances are if you are like most people, your funiture "has always been this way". Changing it up a bit can make it feel new again.Take a good look at your wall art and accessories and try things in different rooms. Don't forget the bathrooms and your entry way too. It’s possible to get a new look by using what you have, and not spending a cent. Now that's decorating advice that any Hubby will love. If you are still needing new life in your room, try changing the paint on even just one wall. You will be amazed at how this one thng can create a whole new feel to your space. Hot colors for 2010 include bright or warm yellows, soft blues and turquoise, lavender for bedrooms and slate or charcoal grays to replace tan and beige tones as popular neutrals. Try to incorporate one new color somewhere in your home this year. Have fun and don't be afraid to change things up a bit.


  1. I have done some of that and it feels good. I moved a chair from the living room to the den during Christmas, burgandy! So... after Christmas, I left it where it was because it looked really good and added some color! I moved a burgandy chest from the bedroom to the opposite side of the fireplace, balanced it right out! Love it!

    Debbie, I think about you often and what you are going thru. I have been there and know how hard it is. My prayers are with you, big hugs from me:)

  2. Debbie are you talking to me?? Girl I know that you are because I am at a complete loss!! I want to paint my LR so badly but unsure of how to do that since it is an open space and runs in with my dining space. I cannot wait until you come over, cause I am sure you are going to know the exact color I should paint it! Not only am I excited to meet you, but I am excited for you to bump ideas off of me!!! :)

    Be safe! Praying for ya!

  4. Decorating on no money?! Love that!!!! I will give it a try. I'll look around at the spaces I don't love and see what I can do differently...with what I already have...instead of being frustrated by what I can't buy.

    Great suggestions!
    Thanks for stopping by today.

  5. Debbie, What great ideas! I love to move my furniture and pictures around! It always makes the space feel new!! Thanks for your great tips :)

  6. Hey Debbie. I love these colors. I am so into the pale soft blues, turquoises and browns and soft grays. Neil's just the opposite still loving the deep greens and warm antique colors.

    Thanks for stopping by. It was nice hearing from you.

    Have a fun weekend. Hugs...Tracy :)

  7. That is just what I have been up to, also. Seems like this time of year is a good one for changes!
