4 Easy & Affordable Ways to Update a Room

1. Swapping out your throw pillows is an easy and inexpensive way to update.  
You can change the look of your room, without breaking the bank.  Select accent colors that complement your existing palette without bringing too much attention to the pillows themselves.  Use different textures and patterns - keep balance in mind. There are numerous sources for inexpensive up-to-date pillows. 
2. Changing your table lamps is another way to add instant style and function to a room. 
Table lamps can update and change the feel of a room by adding color, texture and personality.  Antique Mercury Lamps are popular options as well as colored glass, ceramic  and crystal.  The key is to balance the size, shape and color of the lamp with the design of the room. Whether its contemporary, classic, or transitional, great lighting adds a great finishing touch to any room.  

3. Choosing the right accessories is key to updating and creating stylish, comfortable and interesting rooms. 
Accessories connect the old and the fresh, the new and vintage, the masculine and feminine.  They can add an individual and unique look that appeals to a broad array of buyers by creating a natural, pleasant and inviting space. It's always a balancing act - not too many and not too personal.  It's all about the finishing touches.

Check out your local Target, Home Goods, or TJ Maxx for great ideas.  Also, browse the Internet and check out the latest trends from Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, or Ethan Allen to use as a guide when shopping for more affordable brands.

It is how you put it together that matters.  Choose items that feel like they belong together and are intentional, fresh and inviting.
