When you’re doing a total redecoration, the common modus operandi is to find a large thing you love―whether it’s a paint color, rug, couch, or whatever, and base the rest of the room around that. This time, you’re going to start small. You’re going to situate the tchotchkes and little things first, then go back and change the big stuff later if you have to. You probably won’t have to, but you may find yourself so inspired by your changes that you decide to go the whole hog. Whatever. This is about instant redecorating; we are not responsible for the sudden urge to rip up the carpet and install tray ceilings.
Try rearranging the furniture that’s already there. Remove a piece or two if the room feels crowded. It’s amazing how different a room can feel when the sofa is moved from the west wall to the north wall. Switch your wall art around, too. If you have picture frames on every available horizontal surface, hang ’em up! Either scatter them in odd places or try a large grouping as a focal point. It’s okay if the frames don’t match; that’s totally a thing! Put away the throw blankets and maybe even remove a pillow or three from the couch. Take a step back and evaluate.
If you’re still not satisfied, take a walk through the house and gather up bits and pieces of other rooms. There’s no law that says that the green lamp in the bedroom must stay in the bedroom. Try it in the living room! Or that crystal bud vase you got as a wedding present that you never use; it would really class up the bathroom as a toothbrush holder. The idea is to look at the things you already own in a new way. Try to step outside the realm of every day, and look at your belongings as if you were at an estate sale. You may find yourself appreciating a new beauty in the most mundane things you haven’t even noticed in years.
Lighting has a huge impact on the feel of a room. Put a lamp on a dimmer for a cozier feel, or switch to Reveal bulbs in a higher wattage to brighten up a room. The rule is to have three light sources: ambient, focal, and task. If the only lamp in the room is a torchiere, it’s probably pretty dim. Grab a small lamp from the home office, and put it on the opposite side of the room. On the other hand, there’s no reason to have megawatt lighting in the bedroom; a couple of wall sconces is all you need to set the mood for sleepy time or romance. If you do your makeup in the bedroom, keep a stick-on light in the drawer with your makeup, except don’t stick it; just pull it out when you need to be able to see.
