Time to Start Thinking About the Holidays!

Fall is the perfect time to give your interior d├ęcor a face lift. Outdoor living is coming to an end and the holidays are fast approaching. We all want our homes to be in tip top shape when our friends and families arrive for holiday visits.

Here are a few suggestions for some quick, inexpensive changes that may provide just the spark you are looking for without breaking the bank.

Glass Fitter Shades: One of the easiest ways I’ve found to give a bathroom a new look is to change the globes on the light fixtures. Chances are if your light fixtures have been in place as long as mine, they could use a little updating. If money is no option you might want to go out and buy a whole new fixture, but it really isn’t necessary. Take a look at the variety of glass fitter shades available and see if buying a few of those won’t just do the trick!

Drop Bedskirt: Recently I realized that my guest bedroom needed some sprucing up. It just looked ordinary and I wanted it to be more inviting. My sister will be coming for the holidays and I wanted to create a bed & breakfast atmosphere for her so she would feel like she was on a mini-vacation. Adding a drop bedskirt was exactly what was needed to warm up the room and hide the junk under the bed!

European Style Couch:  If a new couch is in your budget you will want to check out these charming and affordable options. Create your dream living room at a price you can afford. There is no doubt your holiday visitors will be totally swept away by your sense of style! (They don’t have to know how much you saved creating it!)
