Spruce Up Spring…. Home Edit

I have received a bunch of emails asking for some new home accessories for readers who want to spruce up their spaces for spring. I feel your pain. After the holidays, I am always longing for a lighter look and want some fun new accessories to help achieve it. I also like to modern it up a little too. Here are some really fun items that won’t break the bank. I love them all and have a few in my own cart!

One of my favorite interior designers is Meg Braff. I fell in love with her years ago when I saw her beautiful bedroom at the Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House. I recently visited her fabulous new showroom in West Palm Beach on Georgia Ave. If you are in the South Florida/Palm Beach area, it is a must-see. The space is filled with furniture, chandeliers, lanterns, Meg Braff fabrics and wallpaper, and other fabulous pieces from mirrors to decorative objects and everything in between.

Budget Hacks For A Rustic Makeover For Your Living Room

The rustic decor trend has taken over, and everyone wants to bring in the cozy vibes that come with it. But the common misconception is that you need to invest in prized handcrafted elements to get this decor trend right. Moreover, the idea of accentuating your home with the right natural patterns sounds daunting when running on a tight budget. But the truth is that you can get a perfectly rustic look for your home without spending a fortune. Here are some budget hacks to give a rustic makeover to your living room.

Start with a paint project

The rustic transition begins with a paint project. You have to choose a neutral and natural color palette to secure the right vibes for a modern farmhouse style. The good thing is that you have the choice to pick warm or cool hues or even blend the two. Creamy buttermilk, serene grays and blues, and soft sage green are the best color options. Earthy tones also make an ideal choice. Once you decide on the palette, get to work with a DIY paint project!

Prioritize natural fibers

Earthy hues give you the right start, and natural fibers take the farmhouse feel a notch higher. You have plenty of options to use them for, from upholstery to curtains, rugs, and decor elements. Pick textiles such as burlap, wool, cotton, and homespun linen. They do not cost a lot, bring in the right feel, and are eco-friendly as well. There couldn’t be a better way to deck up your hall. 

Invest in new decor elements

A makeover requires some investment, and you will probably be prepared for it no matter how tight your budget is. But you can be a smart shopper and buy rustic decor & wall art without pinching your wallet. Luckily, you can find quality products at discounts online. All you need to do is find the right website to go on a shopping spree without worrying about the cost. Look for timeless pieces that complement your living room and add charm to the decor.

Think minimalist

With rustic home decor, less is always more, so you can actually get a makeover without spending a lot. Ensure that your place does not have too many accessories because they can create a cluttered appearance. Take a minimalist approach and buy attractive pieces that enhance the aesthetic value of your living room. Consider the size of the room and leave enough room for light and air as you furnish it. 

Bring in some plants

Greens are an indispensable part of rustic decor, so you shouldn’t miss out on indoor plants. The best part is that you need not spend a lot on low-maintenance indoor plants, and they bring more than beauty to your living room. You get positivity and fresh air as a bonus. Get creative with the greens and think beyond placing potted plants in the corners. You can even create a vertical garden in your living room.

A rustic makeover on a budget is easy to achieve, provided you know the rules. Implement these wise ideas, and you can have the coziest-looking living room to flaunt. 

Meet The Matt Method..An Organizational Stylist

I recently was introduced to Matt Savoia the talent behind the Matt Method. The Matt Method NYC was started out of his great passion for aesthetics, organization, and visual merchandising. After 25 years in fashion, in many capacities, including sales, merchandising, marketing and management, Matt used his accumulated experiences to create what he refers to as “organizational wellness”.

The difference between Matt and other organizers is that he is truly an interior styling service. He will take our unorganized homes and help to refresh and re-merchandise even the most tired of spaces. The result is the feeling of a new vibrant less stressful, less cluttered home. Here are some of my favorite Matt Method Projects. To learn more about Matt or book a consultation, click HERE.
