What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Pick one piece. For a simple update, pick one piece in your home that needs a refresh and make it of the pastel variety. If you’re in the market for a new sofa, try a serene blue tone. It’s neutral enough that it doesn’t feel overly trendy and will last you through the years.Sofa: Reese, Room & Board
This sofa-chaise combination sports a track arm with a straight cushion. This arm is for you if you like a more contemporary look; it’s rarely used with a T-cushion, because most people think the straight cushion goes better with a contemporary design.Shop track arm sofas on HouzzAlthough each manufacturer will tweak the look of these arms in different ways, these are the five basic choices from which most arm and cushion styles are derived.
Even the puppy looks like he is not quite sure about this new piece. Sometimes the sectional you adored in the showroom — and waited weeks to receive — feels like an alien in your home. That’s because it is!Change, no matter how positive, can be challenging, difficult, stretching. Give it time. Soon enough, that piece will feel like a long-lost friend.
Don't be afraid to splurge, just do it intelligently. Having a few high-quality pieces you love and that suit your style can uplift your entire space, and because well-made furniture will last and holds resale value better than the cheap stuff.But just because you are splurging doesn't mean abandoning your best bargain-hunting skills! Consider seeking out a designer floor model, or finding out when the current year's pieces go on sale. Also be sure that you have the money to spend. Going into debt over a sofa is not worth it.
