I was at a friend’s house the other day and we had so much fun. We didn’t spend any money— we just changed her furniture around. We moved a rug from one room in to the other. We changed her shelves. We put books, greenery and some interesting accessories on them. What I have found over the years is that there usually is a BEST way for the room, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t change your room every now and then. Maybe the traffic pattern isn’t the best—so in the summer, you walk in front of the fireplace—so what? You don’t use the fireplace in the summer anyway. Try putting furniture at an angle— angles add movement and drama.
Talk about an easy way to make you feel better! I love to arrange and re-arrange my furniture. My husband always joked that it was dangerous to walk around our home in the dark — your shins would be constantly bruised because you never knew what was going to be where.
Come on! Don’t be held hostage to your floor plan. Change it up!
