5 Decorating Tips to Refresh Your Home & Lift Your Spirits

Do you answer yes to any of these decorating questions?!

Do you wish your space was more functional?
Has your furniture been in the same location longer then you can remember?
Do you want something different but don’t know where to start?
Do you love your things, but something just doesn't feel right?
Do you think getting a new look requires getting a new sofa?
Do you wish your house felt more like your “home”?
If you have answered yes to even one of these questions, you are not alone. Most homeowners will agree there is at least one room in their house that needs a “spacelift”. Consider calling Decorating Solutions 905-984-6955.


  1. Here are some tips to refresh your home and lift your spirits:
    Don’t be afraid to introduce colour on the walls of a room. Choosing the right shade is important if the room is to reflect the mood you want to create.
  2. To create a cozy atmosphere,
    install dimmer switches to overhead lighting. The softer light is less harsh on the eyes and will instantly change the “Operating Room” atmosphere into a warm, inviting one.
  3. Include the sense of touch throughout your home. A Chenille throw makes you want to curl up with a good book and pass the day away. The sparkle of crystal vases with natural or silk greenery in a room will enhance and soften the space.
  4. Smell is one of the most primitive of senses; it evokes childhood memories, happy times and loved ones...use vanilla and lavender fragrance in your favourite rooms to lift your spirits. One whiff and you are transported back to a happier time.
  5. Consider hanging small wind chimes just outside a window or on a table top. Or add a small fountain to your space. (not a bedroom) These can have a soothing, ethereal effect on our spirits, bringing us into a more serene state of mind.
