Simple Ways to Freshen Up Spaces

1.07.2016

The Christmas decor is down and now you have a fresh clean slate. Do you put things back the way they were and maybe have been for months or even years? Why not change things up a bit? Move furniture to different rooms. Switch out art work and accessories. Move lamps from one room to another. These are all easy things to do for a fresh new look and just by shopping your house.
This is exactly what I have been doing moving things from here to there to create fresh new looks. For some reason I tend to go into this crazy freshening things up mood after Christmas. 

This chair has left the sun room.

This one, too.

 If this chair was replaced with one of the above chairs then this chair moved to a new location, too.

This chair moved.

And this chair in the master moved. 

Did y'all keep up with all that?

You'll see where they ended up soon.
 Nah, I want make you wait for all of them. Here are where the two sun room chairs moved to.

The gray one is in the French style guest room. There are some other changes in this room, too that I'll show you soon.

The red striped one is in the farmhouse style guest room.
I'm loving the new locations for both of these chairs.

How about you? Have you tried moving things around to new spots?

Here's too change!

Come back tomorrow as I join a small group of bloggers to show you some winter decorating ideas.

  4. Hi Kim
    I'm always moving furniture around. After Christmas I moved my Family Room again
    My husband can't believe how often I change things around.
    He has told me I can not change anything for 3 months. hahaha
    Anyway all your chairs are so beautiful
    Enjoy the process - Rose

    1. Oh, my hubby just rolls his eyes. He doesn't even notice when I move things these days. It's just normal. 3 months? No way!!

  5. Nothing moved...but, I'm re-doing some things. I've recovered an ottoman with a grain sack and in process of getting linen washed and ironed to make a slipcover for the sofa in the living room (yikes!)...
    I'd post to the Weds post....don't know how...

    1. It's easy to link up. Just click the tab and then put in the info. It just asks for your post url and then your email address and choose a photo. Google it if you need more instructions. I would love to have you join.

  6. Changes can definitely lift our spirit! I like how you have moved chairs around and will be anticipating more to come! Have a great Thursday, Kim! Pam @ Everyday Living

  7. This is one thing I've learned from following you - when buying something - make it work in every room or space in your home, so it can be switched up! Love change - especially this time of year!

  9. Hi Kim, Let's Talk
    First, I want to say that I love your blog and your new sleek design is great. I have been following your blog for a few years now since I left my full time marketing job to be a stay home mom. I love your decorating style and your sense of humor. Also, I want you to know that I completely appreciate the all the work and effort that you put into creating your beautiful blog. I understand what it takes to create these vignettes. There is a lot of work you have to put into cleaning, styling, tweaking (and tweaking some more), procuring props, lighting, and photographing your beautiful vignettes. You are diligent about keeping your post fresh and new daily. All of this hard work is appreciated by those of us who visit/follow your blog. The fact that you have advertisers appearing on your blog proves that you do have a quality blog, and yes you should be paid for your hard work. Today's post was fun and what a job that must have been to move all that furniture from room to room. Thanks for giving me something to enjoy with my morning coffee.

    1. Thank you Cindy for your kind words and for being a follower. I may not post every day this year. Cutting back some. I need to get my head out of this computer. :)

    2. We'll miss your daily posts Kim, but I completely understand about getting your head out of the computer.

  10. What I love most about rearranging my home is that old pieces look new and refreshed. Of course moving them shows me how dusty they are and I clean them up which really helps!

  11. Kim my only regret in living smaller is having to have given up my chairs of comfort. I love how a chair in one space can take on a whole new look and feel by moving to another area of a home.
    The wing back sun room chairs fit handsomely in the bedrooms with added relaxed comfort, and the formality of the Chris from those rooms will be smartly placed as well.
    The sunroom wing with the restoration hardware home canvas French pillow I have as well, I adore it, I took and threw it in the wash with some bleach to fade out the stenciled writing and I adore it even more... It really made it look antique with the writing so faint.

    You make me want to squeeze in some chairs in my home to move about.

    See you soon and what next you may be moving about, taking away, or adding.

    Xx

    1. Thanks, Dore. I actually would like to live smaller if I could just get hubby on board. Of course he goes to extremes and said we can buy or build a tiny house. No, not that small. :)

  12. Wow Kim I love all your chairs! Too bad you're making us wait for all the changes. I too am in the mood for change. I took out my larger round Nichols and Stone drop-leaf table and exchanged it for a very small round pedestal dining table. I'm painting the base, recovering the chairs with drop cloth and painting a grain sack stripe. Hope it turns out. Got a couple new lamps and a clock to refresh some of my decor. The table, chairs and rest of the changes didn't cost a dime because I already had them. I love shopping the house! Your changes always look so fresh and new even though you shopped the house. You have some great stock!!

  15. Hi Kimmie! No matter where you place your chairs they look lovely. You have lots of pretty chairs to move around too! Hope you've had a great week.
    Be a sweetie,

  16. Love your chairs, Kim, and can't wait to see what room they end up in! I have always been one that loves to change things up, moving furniture around for a new look. I guess I just like change! Hubby says it's a wonder I haven't changed him out in the last 30 years! Lol!

  18. I have not moved things around....but does thinking about it count? 😊 Since we downsized I don't feel I have many ways to switch out the furniture locations...but I am thinking. :-) sheila

  19. What a great post. And I always love reading your post even though sometimes I'm behind in days.

  20. Love the striped chair with pillow no matter where you put it!! You are fortunate to have a large home with plenty of space to move things around. My home is small and every piece of furniture has an assigned space in order to fit!!!

    I change out things for the seasons, just like my mom did!! Curtains, drapes, accessories, flowers, throw rugs, and vignettes. Heavier for cold months, lighter for warm months. Don't know where you get all that energy!!!

  21. I always change mine up too, but this time the change is not so different from Christmas!

  22. I don't have furniture that can be moved from room to room. That is a neat idea, though.
