You just bought a new house. And now you want to replace everything you’ve collected over the years and start fresh with all new furniture, worthy of your new digs and your evolving sense of style that you selected at the De Young Design Studio. Except you feel guilty for ditching furniture that is in perfectly good condition just slightly outdated.
No need to fear! With DIY (and with a little help from your new best friend, Pinterest), you can transform your old furniture and give it new life in your new place!
First – Live With It
Take a little bit of time to live in your new home, understand how you will live in the space, what you need most and what is most important to you. You want to spend your decorating budget wisely, so it is important to take inventory and consider the big picture.
Second – Inspiration Overload
Start to pull together looks that you love. Whether it’s ripping out pages in magazines or spending all your free time on Pinterest, there is much inspiration to be had! It’s important to have a vision of the look you are trying to achieve or what you want your space to “feel” like before you make too many decisions. (We have pinned some favorite looks on the De Young Properties Pinterest page!)
