Clutter Control

What better time to wade through any extraneous junk in the closet, pantry, office, or spare bedroom than the present. Cleaning out the clutter will enhance your mental space as much as it improves your physical space. Clear home, clear mind.

Update Soft Goods


Decorating on a budget can be both easy and fun if you focus on soft goods. For example, nothing spruces up a bedroom like a new comforter and matching pillow shams. Go online and start scrolling through the extensive choices at every price point. Add bold colors or go with a softer, neutral flavor. The options are endless.


Decorative throw pillows can make a couch look like a different piece of furniture. Mix and match colors and patterns to add new personality to any space.


A new rug may be just what you need to perk up your apartment. Make a splash with intense colors and patterns. Or get your Zen on with muted tones. As a focal point of a room, your new rug will make a big difference. Your friends will walk in and think you’ve redecorated the whole place!

Change out the hardware on your drawers and cabinets. Creative knickknacks and even new something as simple as new placemats can add sparkle.
