Bring fresh colors and textures into your home by switching out a few throw pillows. This budget-friendly refresh can bring new life to your sofa or bed for the new year, often for less than $30. Pick pillows in a trendy color scheme to update your home’s look for the new year.


Refresh Your Rugs

There’s no need to invest a lot of money in new flooring to refresh your home – area rugs bring new life to any floor for less. Try a bold, geometric pattern to modernize your space and brighten up your home with color. Coordinate with your pillows and linens for a put-together look, or go for different kinds of prints and patterns for something more eclectic. 


Make Your Walls Talk

It’s easy to make your walls pop with colorful wall décor for the new year. Opt for bright colors and chic metallic foils for a look that is fresh and fun. Mix canvas and framed art to add dimension and texture to your walls – put them together to hop on the gallery wall trend!
