Can you believe that it's almost the end of January? If you had big plans for your New Year's design resolutions, but haven't started any projects yet, what are you waiting for? Take a look at these budget-friendly tips to turn your home into a well-decorated oasis.
- Artwork: Artwork can jazz up your living room. Shop thrift stores or antique shops for one-of-a-kind pieces. Or, if you're feeling particularly crafty, make your own artwork. You don't have to be Picasso to paint. In fact, painting and wine nights for amateur artists are becoming popular social events all across the country!
- Colorful paint: "If you've committed to revamping your home in 2014, then you have to get rid of those white walls," writes Emily Bibb of CasaSugar.com. "While safe, white walls have nothing on rooms painted in shades of red, blue, and even black. With just a few coats, you can make a huge design statement — no hefty budget needed." A new coat of paint means a new set of curtains and drapes to match.
- Wallpaper: This isn't your grandmother's wallpaper! Today's trend favors bright hues and geometric shapes over standard floral motifs. More and more homeowners are incorporating chic wallpaper into their bedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms. Accent walls—where only one wall is decorated in wallpaper of painted—are particularly on trend for 2014.
