Top Interior Designers Share Simple Redecorating Ideas for the New Year

The start of the new year is a perfect time to organize and update spaces around your home. From a fresh coat of paint to upgrading your lighting, here are simple ideas from top designers that will help you refresh your home without a major renovation.


“Repaint a room in a dramatic new color for an easy and inexpensive way to completely transform a space. What once was tired and drab now finds a new life with a fresh coat of paint!” - Jessica LaGrange, Jessica LaGrange Interiors

"A change in a room's lighting can have a dramatic effect. Replacing your current light with a simple, modern pendant or a funky chandelier can instantly revitalize a room." - Douglas Design Studio

"Reenergize a room by adding open shelving. Everyday plates, dishes, and cookbooks that are picked up, used and put back add a refreshing visual element in constant rotation, and it’s a great way to reorganize any clutter formed on countertops over the past year." - Ryan Brown, Brown Design Group

"Hide a computer desk behind a closed door to instantly feel more organized and less cluttered. This lets you easily transition from living room to open functional office when the space is shared." - Elena Frampton, Frampton Co

"Add a simple tape around the contour of the room to give the space definition. Tie the room together by using tape in complementary colors to the drapery fabric." - Nicole Salvesen and Mary Graham, Salvesen Graham

"Add some wallpaper to the ceiling can freshen up a room without any other major changes in the space." - Mark Cutler, Mark Cutler Design

"A new rug, pillow, or window treatment is a fast, easy and cost-effective way to add life for the new year." - Lydia Marks and Lisa Frantz, Marks & Frantz
