Sometimes our spaces just need a little bit of TLC.
In my house, spring cleaning has always been very important, but whatever happened to the fall refresher? Our living rooms are where we spend a lot of time with our family and friends. Over time, these spaces can get a little bit too lived in. However, this doesn’t mean that we have to go about redoing the entire space. Sometimes, adding some TLC can make a world of a difference. There are several ways to approach refreshing your space- one of the best is by looking at what you use and what you don’t use. Most often, we find things that we have outgrown and they’ve ended up collecting dust and adding unnecessary clutter to our spaces. Think about what you need versus what you don’t. For instance, adding a side or accent table can give you an organizational hub and a pop of color to your space that might be feeling a little bit too cluttered these days.
Paintings are a great way to establish a color palate or tie your room together. We chose the Euphoria Wall Décor because it brought together the golden hues of the Kettel Accent Table. Adding a painting that has hints of gold into a room that is already defined by the warm wooden tones, draws your space together giving it a sophisticated and finished feel.
Table top accents are also a great way to add life to your space. Working with the warm tones of our painting, we added the Titan Vase and this Sax Player Statue. As decorative elements, both these items work well within the space as they tie together the natural tones of our chosen color palate.
Throws, pillows, and poufs are also a great way to add style to your space, especially on a budget. Our Lamb and Goat Fur Pillows and Poufs (yes, we really do have it all), come in a variety of colors that are perfect to mix and match to achieve your perfect style combination. We chose light natural tones to add texture, while maintaining this design’s organic feel.
We also find that by adding a few tabletop accents, we are giving our spaces an artistic flare, while maintaining a simple design. We chose to add pieces from the wooden animal collection as well as Iron Orb Black Marble (pictured above), because they complement the natural and industrial elements of our room.
The last thing we did was add a new floor lamp. The Spotlight Floor Lamp was the perfect addition to this living room because its black exterior matched the Kirby Sofa, while its light brass interior pulled out the warm hues of the Tobin Collection.
You don’t have to go all out and buy a new living room set. Accessories are a great way to add pops of color for a fraction of the price. Add a painting, some new plants, pillows or a new lamp to keep your space bright during the fall season. If you find yourself having a hard time with finding a solution that works for you, take a picture of the room you want to accessorize and one of our sales associates will be sure to help you find you some incredible options that suit your style and personality.

Selling your home can be a stressful experience, but there are a few factors that can make a big difference to the final experience. Home staging is one of the key elements of a successful marketing strategy for selling your home. Home staging gives the buyer the visualization of living in the space without the added distraction of a messy and personalized home. It can make a difference between the value a buyer then puts on the home, and how much it can be sold for. Too many colors, furniture and possessions make it difficult for people to concentrate on the property. Potential buyers become interested in a property when they walk in and feel, “I could live here.” They imagine it as their home.
Moe’s Home provides a home staging service that can help you with the styling and decoration of your space, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
You don’t have to be a professional photographer or stylist to show instagram worthy details of your home. A helpful tip is to concentrate on specific corners and sections, so you don’t get overwhelmed with the whole space. Design magazines and books have plenty of cues of how to style spaces if you only take a closer look and notice the separate elements. Notice how a dining space is made warmer and lived in with accessories like a baguette freshly cut on a cutting board, perhaps a glass of wine sitting nearby. Or a living room corner with an open book that sits with reading glasses on top, or shoes laying on the carpet, illustrating the relief of coming home after a long day at work. Fresh flowers are always a perfect touch, keep the palette neutral, white especially works well so it simply complements the various decor elements without being the sole focus. All of these show a personal touch in the picture, and make a space seem warmer and more lived in. Take inspiration from the following photos and try this in your own space. It’s fun to share your interior design skills on your social media, and these few little tips can take you from a regular photo to truly capturing a moment and mood.
Adding just a touch of glimmer, can make a space infinitely and instantly more glamorous.

Working from home can be both wonderful and sometimes challenging. While you are free to operate under your own hours, and come into work wearing exactly what you want, you also have to discipline yourself to structure your time and space accordingly. One thing that can really help increase productivity working from home is setting up an organized and stylish home office. A space where everything has its place, and includes both a desk to work at and a comfortable chair to think through ideas. See our take on the modern home office and shop the look below!
A good chair is a place of relaxation, for hours spent reading quietly, or perhaps watching your favorite TV shows. You can add comfort and style together to make a cozy nook in your living room, and with Father’s Day coming up, what could be a better gift for Dad?
