Are you thinking it’s time to change-up your home decorating style? And as we know taking that leap isn’t easy!
So for some, changing-up their decorating style by painting a new color feels risky. And for others updating an accessory or two pushes the limit.

The general rule of thumb is that homeowners change their home decor every 5-7 years.
Therefore think about painting, adding or switching out accessories this will keep your home feeling fresh in-between major updates.
