Tips for Updating Rooms

If you’re sick of looking at your run down, outdated or just boring room in your home, I’m with you.  I have the tendency to put away items seasonly and add some fresh items of color and texture.  Styles change so I like to add a new item or two to my room in addition to seasonal flowers.  I love real stems but I also used faux.  If used correctly, they can have a fresh and great impact on your room.

To freshen a dull room:

  • Fill holes & paint them in for a cohesive complete room
  • If you want to change out your paint color then do it-you won’t regret it
  • Get rid off all clutter (I can’t stress enough-most important)- items you don’t like, use or are functional in your room
  • Consider rearranging your furniture
  • Add new throw pillow and blankets for color and texture
  • Update family pictures in your frames
  • Add seasonal flowers & accessories (such a shells, drift wood, or any other collections)
  • Change out your lighting-lamp shades and or your over head lighting could be cleaned or updated



This before and after has a lot of changes but some simple ones any body could do.

  • Paint made a big difference in this living room
  • Painting the mantel softened the wall
  • Mirror and art swapped out
  • Larger rug to create a bigger feeling room
  • If you don’t have it in your budget to change your chairs and sofas, consider reapolsetry and arrangement

If you find this to be all too much, then get help.  Set a price & stick within that range to change your dull room to a space that makes you happy.  There isn’t anything better than loving the space you live in.

I love working with people already own.  That way it’s more affordable and may take some imagination and leg work but in the long run you’d be surprised at how things can be transformed.




It’s All In The Details

When I do anything, and I mean any thing, I think about all the details.  Honestly, it’s how I function in my life.  From my house, to planning a party, working with clients, and especially what I wear, I do think about every tiny detail.  I’m in my head saying, ‘nope that’s not right’ or ‘oh that’s it’, ‘ok now that changes this’…so everything becomes a process.

What I know is that I’m really good at taking into account all the details.  I don’t look at most rooms as being ‘done’ as our styles are constantly changing and evolving.  I do the same process with my outfits.  I don’t usually wear the same outfit in the same way.  I like to mix it up to stay on trend, for fun and fitting into the occasion.

Here is my example of taking ‘the details’ into account.

A Denim & Diamond Fundraiser

Layered sparkly necklaces

Silver skirt becomes a neutral

Nude heels to elongate

Top had embellishments but more for me!

Made my own belt and held together with a pin

Hair needed sparkle as well

DIY gold nails

My brightest clutch

DKNY denim topped off the look

This outfit was a big success at the event and I got a lot of attention for taking some chances and paying attention to the details.

I promise you if you pay attention and take time with how you’re wearing clothing and go the extra mile with your accessories and hair, you’ll look fabulous and enjoy yourself so much more!!  Go ahead, what are you waiting for, start working it girl!
