Want to give your home a quick facelift without extra pressure on the pocketbook? Stacie shares some helpful tips...

 

SHORTCUT TIP: Use accessories as a quick and easy way to add color and change things up.

 

Throw pillows

Throw pillows is a quick and easy way to give any room an inexpensive facelift. (I will bring variety)

 

The brilliant and beloved designer Liberty Of London is now designing for Target --pillows start as low as $19.99! Target has a wide range of other color options and designs. (target.com )

 

Local design favorite So'mace Design also offers a wonderful collection of colorful, island inspired throw pillows. Celeb fans include Courtney Cox and Drew Barrymore! (somacedesign.com)

 

SHORTCUT TIP: Use two cloth dinner napkins to create pillow cover (sew or use Velcro) They are pre-measured 18" to fit average square pillow. (will have example)

 

Accessories

Use inexpensive yet colorful accessories to express your personality such as vases, lamp shades. buddah, storage containers or throws.

• KMART

• Target.com

 

Colorful Trays

Personalized Melamine trays Red, Green, White or Pink. Perfect to place on an ottoman or entry table. Also a great base to group collectibles  or even use in a bedroom for jewelry or bracelets.

Framed Textiles

A simple solution to punch up your bare walls for little cost is to frame a square piece of your favorite fabric or create a "collective" of similar objects i.e.: designer shopping bags (Kate Spade, Cartier, Tiffany) Or stretch a pretty fabric the way you would a canvas.  (will bring a few different sized framed examples)

Frames from Target, Kmart etc.
