Let’s be honest – we definitely don’t want to spend our time indoors redoing all of our decor. However, we do want our spaces to look great, especially when friends come over for a get together. These three tips will help you get decorated and out the door before your home knows what hit it!

Quick & Satisfying Decor Updates

1. Refresh Your Rug

Refresh your space with a vibrant summertime rug
Bright colors of bold patterns? Why not both?!

Change something as simple as your rug and the entirety of your space will feel completely different as well. Go with bold patterns, bright colors or a combination of both to change the look of your space. We’re personally coveting all things floral right now, so this rug from Anthropologie is one of our favorites. However this bold, neutral pattern could be your cup of iced tea and just as much of a focal point as a bright floral.

2. Reshuffle Your Furniture

Don’t underestimate the power of rearranging your existing furniture. It’s free, fresh and fabulous! Keep these things in mind to keep your layout reshuffle on point:

  • Know where your room’s focal point is and reposition your furniture around it
  • Vary the size of your furniture pieces to maintain visual appeal
  • Give your furniture room to breathe
  • Don’t float your rug (a prominent decorating mistake)

3. Choose A Metal


Metals can be the small touch of glam, a hint of industrial feel or a classic accent to make your space feel a little dressier and put together. Rose gold is currently one of our favorite metals. It’s a sophisticated, slightly feminine pop that we can’t get enough of. This mirror from lulu & Georgia would look great over an entry table or sofa. Brass in Pottery Barn’s Vince Side table is elegant and quirky, adding a glamorous touch to any space. Bronze is the perfect choice for an industrial feel, like this reclaimed wood and bronze table, or this Mirror is another great option.
