New colors, fresh upholstery, and new drapes can all put a fresh new perspective on one’s personal space and outlook. Of course this does not mean that one has to do away with favorite old furniture, artifacts, habits, etc. But sometimes it is good to shake things up a bit. For some this might mean moving to a new home. For others, introducing a fresh decor may do the trick.
This couple moved into a new home, bought a few pieces of comfy new furniture and reupholstered their favorite pieces. With a new floor plan and color scheme they were able to take a fresh look at what their futures held without the family routines that had been at the center of their lives for the last 25 years.
It was liberating to look at their new orange drapes and contemplate what a Saturday might look like without a high school soccer game on the schedule!
Tip: It is easy to get lost in time on that cozy sofa with a cup of coffee…wait…maybe that’s not a bad thing.
