Here are a few tips by guest contributor Jennifer Gilligan on how you can transform your home into a classy abode.
Whether you've lived in an apartment for a week or been in your house for 30 years, sometimes it's just nice to change things up. Your surroundings can have a huge impact on your mood, so you'll want to opt for a calm, refined style. Here are a few ways to give your place some much-needed class.
1. Change the Lighting Style
This is easier to do in a house you own instead of an apartment you rent, but you'd be surprised at how much a change in lighting can make a difference to your place. Get rid of those harsh lamps in the living room and grab a few sets of wall-mounted lamps. Go all out in your dining room with antique furniture and a huge chandelier, which will run about $200. These small, easy changes will make a huge difference.
