Just change the accessories...

Hi all..
While sitting outside  in the sun this morning having a cuppa
 I was thinking about how quick and easy it is to change a look of a room with accessories.
Coming into the cooler weather I want to winterize my home with out spending money.
How you ask?

Take my bedroom and  bathroom.
 When I first renovated and built the new bedroom and bathroom  I went with a pretty pink theme..I love pink and my old room was already decorated this way. I just used the curtains and accessories I already had.


I hadn't yet painted my bedroom though, yet it was still decorated with a pretty country theme. I change furniture from one room to another, pinch some mirrors from other rooms. Just walk around the house and see what you can use. 


If you really want to make a huge difference PAINT...if you DIY it it's not going to cost a lot of money and look at the difference it made to my bedroom. I sometimes don't believe it is the same room.

In my bed room I used all the same furniture I just changed the color scheme. I have always loved the look of black and white so decided to try it in my room and ensuite. The curtains I already had, I got new lamp shades, photo frames, cushions and a throw for the bed.
A new room with out spending lots of money.

For the ensuite I used the same curtains and I did buy a candelabra for this room. A few changes and we have a whole different look with nothing more then a lick of paint to the bedroom and changing of the accessories.

I have always changed the look of my rooms at the change of seasons. If you click in the side bar on the differant rooms like lounge room you can also see there how I changed the look with no more than changing accessories.

So while I am away on holidays for 3 weeks I will be thinking about the changes I am going to make when I get home. Pull the floor rugs out, change the pillow cases, add some throws to chairs..
Of course I will be adding lots to my Pinterest of all my ideas. What do you do to change the look of rooms???

Tomorrow we are off on a road trip for 3 weeks, Yep heading up to David and Karen's and coming home SLOWLY down the coast.. So join me over the next 3 weeks as we travel...
