5 Easy Ways to Refresh Your Home for the New Year

An interior designer's wont-break-the-bank tips for refreshing your space in 2022


What better time to revive your home than at the start of the new year?

We sat down with Interior Designer (and CH&L Circle of Excellence winner) Colleen Johnson, ASID, CAPS, of In-Site Design Group to talk about all things home refresh.

Here are Johnson’s five wont-break-the-bank tips for refreshing your space in 2022.

1. Declutter and organize closets and pantries. Remember that “junk drawer” in your home? Now’s the time to clear it out. There’s no better way to start 2022.

2. Giving your walls a fresh coat of paint is another way to refresh for 2022. Add an accent wall of color to a room or two for a bit of “punch.” People will think that you have new furniture when all you did was add a color backdrop.

3. Add live or silk plants for a quick and easy way to add life to your home.

4. Sometimes it’s as easy as moving area rugs to a different room. Relocating art and accessories from one room to another can change the look and refresh a space.

5. Change out your old and tired towels and accessories for baths. If you are like most of us, you’ve waited too long to retire those old towels. Adding new bath accessories can also add sparkle and refresh your bath.
