7 Easy Updates to Bring Your Home into the New Year

7 Easy Updates to Bring Your Home into the New Year

Looking to refresh your nest in 2023? We’ve rounded up these simple ways to bring your home into the New Year from the Ethan Allen – Citrus Park Design Team.

“When you work with a designer, we can help to incorporate new colors into your home (maybe even the hot color of the year, Viva Magenta) even if your home is currently all neutrals,” Ethan Allen says.

Update your entryway with fresh touches.
Maybe it’s a fresh runner in a bold hue or a new piece of artwork and exciting decorative accent piece. The entryway is the first thing people see when they come into your home. An update here will never go unnoticed!

Revisit your lighting options.
Does your dining room chandelier lack sparkle? Maybe your living room could use some new accent lighting. Updating a chandelier or adding an interesting floor lamp can change the focus of a room to highlight its best features.

Make a statement with wallpaper.
Give your walls some main character energy with a bold floral or add some textural interest with a neutral grasscloth. Adding wallpaper to your space is a surefire way to make any room feel new!

Create your own oasis with a new mattress.
You’ll never be able to tackle your list of New Year’s resolutions while sleeping on an old, outdated mattress. It may not look that different, but looks aren’t everything! Having the right mattress can be the difference between sweet dreams and waking up on the wrong side of the bed.

Reflect on the good with a timeless mirror.
The right mirror can take a room from outdated to upgraded! A well placed mirror can hide imperfections in the wall, fill an empty space and reflect the light from nearby windows to make the whole room feel larger. Luckily you can find beautiful mirrors that match or complement any decor style.

Think outside of the box… or home and update your outdoor living space.
Think about your outdoor decor the same way you would your indoor decor. How will you be using the space? Is it an area for hanging out, dining or lounging by the pool? Already have your dream outdoor dining set but still want to spruce it up? Consider adding a cute hanging chair or hammock. You can tie it all together with a fresh weatherproof rug and pillows for an outdoor oasis feel.

Try out bold new colors and add interest with an accent chair, fresh pillows and throws.
Fill an empty corner with an accent chair in a bright color to mix up a room or pile on the pillows and wrap yourself in the comfort of a gorgeous new throw. Mix and match with colors and textures to give a truly luxe feeling to any space. If you are unsure about a bold new color combo, this is the perfect chance to give it a try without having to commit to new furniture or wall paint. You can even craft a pillowscape all your own by creating a custom-made pillow arrangement and throw combo.
