Step 1: Color
Color is key. Painting is such an easy and relatively inexpensive way to completely revamp a room, so consider giving your space a new paint job before deciding on furniture.
Step 2: Furniture
Furniture can make or break your space, so before you think about adding in decor and more eclectic pieces, focus your energy on finding tables and chairs that speak to your taste.
Step 3: Light
If your space is full of beautiful natural light, be sure to incorporate a lot of breezy curtains and lightweight materials to make the most of it. If not, find a statement light fixture that ties the room together.
Step 4: Accessorize
This is the fun part—finding rugs, pillows, and other decorations that reflect your personal style and complement the other pieces in the room.
