You want to give your main living space a facelift before summer comes to bring some life to your home, but you don't have a diva's design budget? No problem! We turned to online coupon giant RedPlum and its Mom-Saver-in-Chief Lisa Reynolds for some simple ways to spruce up your space without spending a whole heck of a lot, if anything at all.
· Rearrange your living space. You can make a dramatic difference rearranging instead of redecorating --simply use what you already have. Switch out lamps, pillows, area rugs, picture hangings and even window coverings from room to room. De-clutter and rearrange to give your room a new look. Consider adding warm, personal and cozy touches like a vase of fresh flowers from your back yard or tie a group of blankets together with a big ribbon and place on the couch.
· Look online for inspiration. Instead of purchasing glossy home décor magazines or hiring an interior designer, look to Pinterest, one of the fastest growing social media channels, for redecorating advice and inspiration. Make sure you also check out websites like redplum.com for ideas and save.com for savings opportunities.
