1. Update your room with a new rug!
A new rug can dramatically affect the look and feel of a room. You can add cozy texture and colorful pattern with a new rug and completely change the look and feel of a room. Rugs anchor conversation areas and warm up your space. These Amazon rugs are great options, and available now at great prices.
2. A new ceiling fixture is a great and simple room update!
Lighting is like jewelry in your room. A new chandelier can make a great statement in your dining room, living room, or entryway.
3. Switching out your throw pillows is a simple way to update your room.
I love to switch out my throw pillows with the change of seasons. You can easily create a fresh new look in your living room with a new pillow combination.
4. New table lamps add cozy ambient lighting to a room.
Lighting has a big impact in a room. Every room needs several sources of light, and chances are your room could use a little more table lighting. Overhead lights can be harsh, and table lamps create a warm and inviting space in your room.
5. Update your room with a new paint color.
If you have the time, a new paint color can really give a room a fresh new look.
If you need a new neutral, here are a couple of my favorite neutrals along with my favorite Sherwin-Williams off-white.
If painting an entire room is more than you want to tackle, you could create an accent space with one of the rich colors below. Update a bookshelf by painting the backs of the shelves in a dark accent color. Don’t forget your ceilings! If your room has crown molding or a tray ceiling, consider painting the ceiling a pretty accent color.
I’ve included a few of my favorite dark moody colors for ceilings or accent areas in a room.
I hope this is a great resource for you to pick a quick room update to spruce up a space in your home before the holidays. These colors and decor selections work well together, so in a pinch you could use this post as a great starter design board for your home! Choose one or two, or do them all — whatever your schedule allows for.
