Swap out accents
You can give a room a fresh look with a few simple swaps that won’t require you to spend hundreds of dollars. Changing decor and adding new accents such as throw pillows, curtains or wall art can give any room a new look on a tight budget.
Paul Trudel-Payne, co-founder of the duoLifestyle Brands and principal designer for duoHome, an interior design and lifestyle company, recommends adding accent pillows made from linen in neutral colors and decor pieces made from natural materials like stone, wood and iron.
“It makes the space feel bright, fresh and rejuvenated, exactly what you want for summer and summer,” Trudel-Payne says. Snag deals on accents with discount retailers like Marshalls and HomeGoods.
