So you’re tired of looking at the same old fabrics. They served you well for the last 10 years, but they no longer feel like you. And your space no longer feels fresh and current. It’s still pretty, but because the fabrics and colors are feeling dated, your space is weighing you down.
What to do?
If you read my last blog, you know that reupholstering isn’t cheap, but here is the other side of that coin. You still really like your furniture. It was well made and comfortable. You really don’t have it in you to go schlepping all over town to find new comfortable furniture. You really just want a refresh with the least amount of headache possible.
So to make this space current, let’s discuss what the color scheme should be. What will make you happy? What colors do you think you can live with for the next 10 years? If you move, will those colors be able to be incorporated into the new space and still look current?
Those are things you need to think about.
A new living room can start at a $25,000. I recently had a client who was tired of her chairs and ottoman. After several back and forth conversations, she was adamant about redoing them. We discussed a color theme that could move forward in a new space if the opportunity arose. I found the perfect fabrics and got the OK. With a new coat of paint, some new fabrics, and a few new accessories, my client’s space looks fresh and current, and more importantly, it has impacted the way she lives on a daily basis and she is thrilled with the outcome.

Are you ready to make some changes in your home for 2019?
