The holidays are upon us and all the festivities are taking place. What a special time to enjoy your traditions and surroundings!
Once all the gatherings have taken place and we ring in the new year, the next task is to take down all the seasonal decorations. That is a great time to start thinking about redecorating, transitioning your winter home decor and getting excited about the process! Your manufactured home is your own slice of the world to customize to reflect your style and flair.
Start With What You Love
Start gathering ideas for new looks. Find one item that really “grabs” you every time you see it. Trust your gut and begin building around that one item. For instance, it could be an area rug or toss pillow that has a beautiful pattern and color.
These kind of items give you a chance to start building a look without investing too much before you decide what you want to live with.
Try Smaller Changes
If you want to freshen your living room and don’t want to part with some of your larger purchases such as sofas and tables, opt for a new set of lamps or one accent chair like the red velvet loveseat above or the patterned chair below. They can completely change the style direction of your room.
If your favorite color is on that toss pillow you just bought, take it to the local paint store, and have it scanned. Buy one quart of paint in that shade and paint an entry wall that will “lead” into your living room now.
Try A Trend
Think about turquoise, orange, plum, emerald or deep blue as accents--they are trending colors right now and are easy to find in all kinds of items.
Add a dramatic piece of art or mirror on that foyer wall and see how things continue to develop.
If your favorite color is a really strong or deep color, then my best advice is to think of it as seasoning. Start out light and keep adding to it as you develop your unique taste!
After the first of the year and before tax season is when furniture stores run their best sales and financing offers, so the time to shop is now. This manufactured home is yours to make your own, so have fun with it!
