With the welcome of spring this month a lot of us are looking to freshen up our living space and well... spruce up the joint for the coming season.
Well, think again... thanks to our PEI pals Carly Martin and Melissa VanToever at Turquoise Shed Designs there are some quick, easy and affordable ways to liven up any and every room.
TURQUOISE SHED Tips: Easy Does It!!! In Any and Every Room
Not all of us can afford a top to bottom overhaul of our space, but we still want to make it our own! 'Bite Size' design are design changes that are easy to make and really make an impact. Here are some of our favourite ideas for an ‘Easy Does It’ change to your space. Pick one and see how quickly your space transforms for you!
We painted them and replaced the worn upholstery with fresh coordinating graphic and floral fabrics for a quick pick me up.
Just by updating the knobs or pulls on your kitchen cabinets... you'll be easily updating your kitchen!
Or, giving some personality to a functional dresser, side table, or bathroom vanity.
Here we simply added mismatched knobs that tied in the colour scheme of the room.
This allowed us to reuse a treasured family piece for the next generation.
It's an easy way to update every room of the house and brighten any space.
Either by replacing your old ceiling light fixtures with a piece that pops like this chandelier or...
By adding a jolt of colour to a side table - with a great looking lamp...
Swapping out-dated lighting can be an easy and versatile way to express your personal style.
Window treatments are one of our favourite ways to inject personality into any room!
You can even personalize the ready-made options like we’ve done here. We commissioned the talented artist Chloe Weale to screen print a fun design on burlap which we had sewn onto plain linen panels for an added touch of texture.
The sky is the limit, hit the fabric stores and see what embellishments call out your name!
Above all, have fun with your space and remember that a small change can make a big impact.
Easy does it!!!
