Lori Carroll Discusses Updating your Home in Honor of the New Year and Decor Resolutions for 2015

Name three ways readers can update their homes and start fresh in honor of the New Year.


First, I would suggest updating fabrics around the house. Switching worn, outdated colors and patterns with brighter, crisper options will give homeowners a fresh perspective for the New Year.


Painting is always a great way to make things new again. For an uplifting start to 2015, think about energizing a room with a “Color of the Year” from one of the major paint manufacturers.


Rearrange furniture. Move seating arrangements around to make a space feel more inviting. Even relocating pieces to different locations throughout the house brings renewed energy to a home—perfect for ringing in 2015.


What are a few home décor-related New Year’s resolutions you’d suggest readers strive to achieve in 2015?


  • Reduce visual clutter. We all have mementos and collectibles we like to display to make our house a home; however, not containing them will have the opposite effect and make a space feel uncomfortable. Choose accessories wisely; adding a splash of color and interesting textures to change the tone of a room.


  • Everything doesn’t have to match. The key to a casual, comfortable space is to have contrasting elements throughout. Regardless of your style, include pieces that don’t necessarily fit the genre of your design plan; for example: pair modern pieces with traditional to add depth to any room.


  • Most importantly, homeowners shouldn’t hesitate to consult with an interior designer regardless of how large or small a project is. Most interior designers are flexible with how they work with clients, and are valuable assets in the pursuit of the perfect design.
