Be honest: Has your sofa had its day? Is that old kitchen table still working for your family, or is it ready for someone else to give it some love? Was the sideboard a bad idea after all?
Take photos of your rooms and furniture on your phone, and look at them outside the house to help provide some distance. Then ask yourself: Do I love it or just live with it, and can I afford to replace it? If something new isn’t in your budget, consider upcycling your possessions by painting, personalizing or customizing them.
If you’re ready for something different on your walls, current popular shades include fresh forest greens and soft gray-blues, while inky blues and grays are still going strong.
