(NAPSI)-Redecorating for the season can be fun and exciting, but an unlimited decorating budget is not always realistic. By making smart purchases and shopping at resources that offer off-price values, you can infuse the season into any room for under $100.
Place a soft wool throw on the sofa, excellent for a cool afternoon nap. Switch photos into deep gold and pewter frames to make them look like new and adorn the mantel with a dried fruit and berry harvest wreath and warm, fall-scented pillar candles.
Replace your everyday table linens with a richly colored, exotic embroidered runner. An oversized apothecary jar can be a beautiful centerpiece when filled with pine cones or feathers. Change up dinner with coordinating accent plates or serving platters in a bold damask pattern or update your entire tabletop with cream-colored, raised-relief, patterned dinnerware.
Instead of the standard weekend breakfast, use oversized, leaf-shaped cookie cutters when making pancakes. Replace pot holders and kitchen towels with ones in stylish spice colors and patterns. Burn an apple-scented candle for that freshly baked scent.
Guests will have a pleasant surprise when they wash their hands with pumpkin-scented soap and are then greeted by decorative fingertip towels in fall colors. Change the look of your bath by replacing your shower curtain with one in a bold, spice color or switching your current shower curtain rings with ones shaped like leaves or twigs.
Warm up your bedrooms. Add a beautiful paisley quilt in deep colors and make the bed with snug flannel sheets. Switch out bedside lamps for those with heavier shades in warmer-colored fabrics and place a small Oriental throw rug next to the bed to keep feet warm on chilly mornings.
Give walls an updated look with framed traditional wallpaper prints or invoke warmth with inspirational words, quotes and phrases on carved wood plaques. Place luxurious silk throw pillows, embellished with tassels and fringe, in unexpected places, such as a foyer bench or a window seat. Use woven and metal baskets as both storage and decoration on stairs, at the foot of beds and in hallways.
