Add cheer to a room without all the fuss

The days are getting shorter, which means your living space may need a few bursts of color to maintain a warm, cheery feel throughout the coming months. After all, as picturesque as Vancouver Island can be during the summer months, there is no denying that fall and winter tend to get a little, well, gray. Luckily, there are simple ways to infuse a bit of cheeriness into any space without excessive cost or efforts, as the interior design authority Apartment Therapy has touched on in a past piece.

In response to a survey conducted by the home furnishing store HomeGoods indicating that many homeowners know that a change in decor would improve their day-to-day mood, but are worried about the cost of such revamps, the source has suggested a few easy and relatively inexpensive ways to make a beneficial impact in any living area. The focus of the article was on the power of accessories to transform the feel of a room. 

If you're looking to add a few vibrant hues to an area, for example, you can do so without devoting your weekend to the endeavour.

"The brushes, the rollers, the splattered clothes—skip the hassle (and expense) [of a new paint job] and add punches of color the easy way," the source states. This means installing new drapery, adding throw pillows, and incorporating other bits and bobs that pack a visual punch but can be easily moved around whenever you see fit.
