You want your home to reflect your personality and style, no matter what the season or occasion. Accomplishing this task is as easy as switching out a few accessories to reflect your current mood or as in-depth as redecorating your interior to match a new you. Whether your home needs a simple decor update or a complete overhaul, here are a few tips for creating your new look.!

1. Candles and Candle Holders

Candles and candle holders are the easiest way to update your decor while adding sophistication and warmth to your rooms. Darker colored candles are great for the winter and fall seasons while pastels and brighter colors work well during spring and summer. Also, switching from heavier, masculine candle holders, such as dark woods and thick metals, to lighter-colored, feminine materials, such as delicate, colored glass and lighter-colored woods, instantly transforms your room from season to season.  


2. Modern Pillows and Curtains 

Next, modern, decorative pillows and curtain panels update the look of any room. Add a couple of patterned throw pillows to your living room couch or chairs to bring some up-to-date texture and color to the room. Another easy way to make a strong statement is to replace your old curtains with new drapes, in solid colors or bold patterns, to reflect your personality and sense of style. For a complete look, add a chic, new rug that complements the pillows and drapes to bring the room together.   

 

3. Lighting 

  

Finally, lamps are a quick way change the character and feel of any room. In your home office, replace your old, functional desk lamp with a floor lamp that offers diffused lighting for a more comfortable feel. In the bedroom, replace your traditional reading lamp with a contemporary-style lamp made from parchment. For a modern look in the living room or dining room switch out an older chandelier with a sleek new pendant lamp. Updated lighting is a great way to transform the atmosphere of your home. 

 

From candles to textiles, these ideas are designed to help you easily create a new and modern look for your home. Whether your sense of style is fun and quirky or sophisticated and traditional, by incorporating your own personal touches with these ideas, you are creating a space that reflects you and your personality.
