We all want to save money when we decorate. But how do you incorporate trends in your rooms, without breaking the budget, especially in the fall when you want to just simply warm up your rooms?
I was asked by Kendal Perez of US News to lend some suggestions that she could share with consumers. Her article titled Tricks to Save Money this Fall appeared in USNews and our suggestions were featured!
Currently metallic’s are hot in decor, I discussed this in the article as to how they can update a space and complement the colors of fall. Adding warm colored accessories such as pillows and throws cozy up a room, without spending a lot of money. Another idea is to look outside; use some of the beautiful natural elements that surround you and are in your yard bring them inside and add to vases, on the mantle of a fireplace, or use with candles. They will create instant gratification, and make your rooms feel warmer.
She included other great insights from other designers, but we all agreed that moderation is key. Don’t go crazy with a lot of decorations, consider decorating for the season verses a holiday. It will save on the budget, along with the nerves.
Fall is a great time to revamp rooms, it doesn’t have to be expensive, sometimes just adding a few touches can give you a completely different look and feel to a room. Changing it from alright to awesome!
