To say this year hasn't gone as planned would be an understatement. There's been a lot of change, and, often with change, we see things in a new light.
With all of us spending more time at home –it’s only natural that we’re seeing our home in a new light too. Is that sofa you bought 3 years ago really comfortable? Is hunching over your laptop on the kitchen the best long-term option?
We talked to our team of designers to get their point of view on how home design needs have shifted over the past few months along with some simple solutions.
Unless you’re renovating or moving into a new home, changing the design and feel of your home usually happens in small steps. Sometimes it happens because one day you look up and decide you hate the paint color in your living room. Or, you realize the rug you inherited from your grandmother is starting to look very outdated.
The great thing is – you don’t need to make twenty decisions all at once to change the look of your home. Creating a modern home doesn’t need to be a huge overhaul. And it also doesn’t need to include getting rid of your favorite pieces.
We put together a list of 5 simple swaps, additions, and changes to instantly create a modern look in your home.

Here’s what we’ve been up to during this time.
With the world at a stand-still for the past few months, we’ve all been spending much more (if not all) our time in our homes.
That extra time may have brought to light some issues in your homes that you want to remedy –whether it’s an entire renovation or one room you’re focusing on.
And the truth is, there’s no better time to think a little more deeply about your space and what you want from it.
Sometimes it’s the simplest changes that have the greatest impact. Regardless of style and budget, there’s one change that will instantly update the look of your home: wall color.
Whether you’ve just moved into a new home or you’re looking for a fresh take on a room in your house, changing your paint color is a great place to start.
