Inexpensive Decor Fixes

Hi Guys! Oh how I miss the trade mark greeting :-) If you are one of those people who like to change up the way a Room looks with the Season.This is the perfect post for you; The best part is you don't have to spend an arm and a leg to make your place look good!

1. Pick one Room : Instead of going crazy trying to do over an entire House ( unless you can actually afford it ) Pick one Room and make it a Project. This could be a Bathroom , Bedroom , Kitchen or even an Home Office.

2. Add a Fresh Coat of Paint. I recently discovered that Paint is relatively inexpensive! If you pick one room as suggested above .. depending on the size of the room it could take just a gallon to get the job done. For smaller Rooms, I suggest lighter, brighter colors as this will open up your space and for larger rooms you should use warmer colors which will fill in empty spaces. Visit your local paint shop or wherever paint is sold and ask them for the color pallets and the prices.

3. Small Details Matter: There is so much that can be done by adding minor touches to a room like Cushions , Mirrors , Vases and even Candles. These can bring a room to life without you even trying and the possibilities are endless. If you live in Jamaica , a great place to find Small Detailed pieces is L.P Azar , they have opened a new Home Section that has really nice pieces.

4. Create a Specific Theme: Have you ever visited a place and saw Leopard Curtains , Fuchsia Furniture and a Random Elephant in the corner? You need to have some sort of thought going on in your Decorating Process or your place could look crazy . If you like the neutral look for example , bring it to life by adding pops of color throughout.

5.  Re-Purpose old Pieces: The greatest thing about re-purposing old furniture is that you can turn them in just about anything. All you need is time, imagination and a few items to take your pieces from drab to fab.

  1. Lot's of great tips here. I just recorded a YT video about decorating on a budget. Your tip about picking one room is super. People often look at their projects in terms of the entire house and feel intimidated. Tackling one room at a time is what I do. Next is my guest bath.

  2. Its so true updating a color in your room and adding some fresh color accents with pillows and your room can have a great new look.
