The Fresh Approach

Spring is a time of renewal and a time to make good on those New Year’s decorating resolutions. It really doesn’t take much to breathe new life into tired rooms. You just need to come up with a fresh approach by rethinking your interior and exterior living spaces. It may involve something as simple as adding new accessories, reupholstering a sofa, re-hanging artwork or rearranging a space for maximum punch. A pair of fresh objective eyes can help. I recently purchased a large antique partner’s desk for my office. To incorporate the desk, I had to rearrange the room by turning some shelves. With just a few simple changes, I was able to open up the space, which allowed more natural light to come into the room just in time for spring.
