Three Simple Ways To Achieve A New Look For Your Home ~ Mohawk Home ~ $399 Floor Covering Giveaway ~ #CMM




Invariably, every spring, I get bit by the redecorating bug.  The spring sun shines on all the things we didn't get around to updating or improving last year and my husband starts slinking around the house, trying to stay out of sight, for fear of the emergence of the annual, dreaded 'Honey Do' list.  Beyond comical, his mute efforts are something akin to my memories of playing hide and seek with my children at age two.  I'm certain you remember.... they close their eyes so tightly while hiding behind a floor lamp, they are convinced that they are completely invisible.



Although I love to gets my hands dirty in our home improvement projects, the simple truth is that I am the 'brains'  and my husband is the 'brawn' in this DIY team.  Truth be told, the Hubs has been known to describe our arrangement a bit differently.  In fact, in the midst of my redecorating planning frenzies, he has been known to use a more personal pet name for me, one that has four words and starts with 'P', and it isn't  precious little pumkin' pie!

As any good manager knows, the key to getting quality work from your crew is to set realistic goals and to bake up plenty of their favorite treats.  With this in mind and so much home improvement work to do, this DIY manager has had to make some temporary compromises to ensure that larger projects get their due attention and effort.  (That, and the fact that my 'crew' threatened to quit if I put too many projects at once on his 'Honey Do' list!)

To keep the DIY peace, while the Hubs works away at a larger project, I've found three easy ways to get a great new look that require both minimal effort and are budget-friendly.

Add a splash of color
With a simple changing of window treatments in a new hue or the addition of a variety of throw pillows in complimentary patterns as well as solids can add a fresh new feel to any room in your house!  Transitioning from a monochromatic look to pulling in colors opposite the room's main color on the color wheel, or the opposite, can make a dramatic difference.  Easy to accomplish on any budget and within a day time, you'll can take your room in a whole new direction.



Transform your room with a new rug or floor accent piece!  



Whether you are sprucing up a foyer, bath, bedroom or living area, creating a new look can be as simple as replacing your existing floor coverings that have seen their share of spills and muddy foot prints.  When we purchased our home, having moved from a fully carpeted condo, an striped area rug was all we had available for our new formal dining room.  Although I still loved the colors, it was wholly inappropriate for its temporary home in the dining room.  I found a gorgeous pattern from Mohawk Home that was a gorgeous improvement, both a style better befitting the space and complimentary our antique dining set in pecan and soft walls already painted in Moroccan Sand.

Concord Ruby Collection ~ Mohawk Home

Already familiar with the quality and durability of Mohawk Home products, this DIY decorator loves that I can find a wide variety of accent pieces to match or compliment a larger room rug.  The Concord Ruby pattern I fell in love with is available in numerous sizes, from small accents, up to 10' x 13', and even in round.  Oh so soft, yet durable and up to the challenge of withstanding the wear of pets and teens, this stain and fade resistant rug is perfect for adding an elegant touch to my dining room!



Shed some light on the subject!
Adding or improving the quality of your room's lighting can have a dramatic effect on the overall look!  Whether you update a dated fixture, add recessed lighting to spotlight particular features or add a stylish new lamp, making a change to the lighting in a room can be an easy way to make a difference and highlight your decorative skills, as well as change the mood of your space.

No matter your home improvement plans for this spring, keep your in house DIY labor crew moving forward on the big projects by tackling the easy solutions yourself.  Mohawk Home makes it easy for you with hundreds of styles of quality floor coverings to choose from!  You'll find just the right piece to suit your style and the new look you seek from Mohawk Home!

I read on the Mowhawk site that natural wool is more expensive than polypropylene. That makes sense. I would prefer the wool!
