Find a Store 02150

You step into your living room and immediately notice the outdated, dull dΓ©cor. Want to update the room without doing a complete overhaul? If you're a fan of your larger pieces like the sofa and chairs, but need something that can bring life back into the space without having to spend big bucks or invest lots of time redoing the entire room, we can help. It’s easy to refresh your dΓ©cor on a budget by pairing small, vibrant accent pieces with the furniture you already have. Little changes really can make a huge difference.

Consider Color

When your room is lacking life, adding a pop of color can work wonders. Find a larger accent piece, like a credenza, in a color you love. Then, find smaller pieces, like mirrors or throw pillows that are the same color as the accent you’ve chosen. They don’t all have to match exactly – try using different shades of the same color to add depth and layers to your newly refreshed room.

Pick Patterns

Patterns draw the eye in and create movement within a space. The colors in a patterned piece should be neutral enough to match the surrounding furniture so the room doesn’t feel totally mismatched. The outside of this Laila credenza is a soft, neutral silver, but it has a secret pop of color when you open the doors.

Stick with Statements

Statement pieces get people talking. Whether they're modern, nautical, boho, or glamorous, statement pieces can inject energy into a lackluster space in one fell swoop. These pieces don’t necessarily need to be a bright color or have an out-there pattern – it just needs to be unique. The geometric design and stunning wood finish of this Cortez console table will give your space a funky, updated feel.

Accent pieces can be used in different rooms at different times, so finding pieces that can easily travel around your home is a huge bonus.
