Hillary’s Quick Tips for Refreshing a Room

OK…we know you all have those rooms in your home that are in need of a little pick-me-up. Rooms that really have all the right pieces, but are just missing a little life. Or perhaps, you are planning to completely overhaul the room, but that isn’t happening until your next bonus hits.  If you don’t feel like undertaking a major remodeling project, follow Hillary’s quick and easy recipe for refreshing a room!

1. Toss a colorful throw across a chair or sofa.

While these small changes may not result in a completely different room, they may just be what you need to take things up a notch.  Hillary believes that a great home is a creative mix of high and low where the pillow you snagged at Target looks great perched on a fine antique chair.
