Quick Redecorating TipsIt's February and although spring is around the corner, the gray gloomy skies can make you forget. Pick yourself up from the end of winter blues with a few quick and easy ways to transform your living space.


Area rugs: The fastest way to transform a room is to change out or add in a new area rug.  Once you select the rug you like, you now have free reign to pick up a couple of choice accents like throw pillows or a vase.  Really bring out the colors in your new rug! Get bright and bold!! Overstock.com and Target are a couple of our favorite places to find great decorating deals that won't break the bank.


Lighting: Lamps are a easy way to (literally) brighten up a space. Even if you are already using a  lamp, change the shade to add a different contrast to the room. Also, did you know you can buy CFL light bulbs that mimic real sunlight? It's the perfect way to pick up your spirits for only $10/bulb. Check them out here on Amazon.com.


Rearrange: As in the famous words of Peter Brady: "When it's time to change, you've got to rearrange." Sometimes the simplest solution is to take what you have and rework it. Use our Floor Plan Organizer as your plan of attack and get your feng shui moving. To use the Organizer, start here.  Locate your apartment community, click on the "Floorplans and Pricing" tab, find your floorplan, and click on the icon. Arrange away!
