Expert Insights

These tips will help bring to life the mood you’re looking to create in your home.

Lighten & Brighten

Let energizing sunlight and cool breezes into dark rooms by switching out dark, heavy drapes for sheer, airy curtain panels. Use double-layered sheer panels if you prefer a full, billowy look, or layer a pair of sheers with a pair of opaque panels in rooms where privacy is needed.

Living Plants and Flowers

During the long winter months when your home starts to feel stuffy and closed-in, adding fresh flowers can both revitalize and add style to your space. Choose flowering potted plants instead of cut flowers so that the colorful blooms and floral scents will last. And for an added decorative touch, use ribbon to tie a square piece of a favorite fabric around the outside of the pot.

Fresh Pop of Colour

Bring the fresh airiness of spring into your home by painting a room a crisp, pale blue, switching out your tired towels for plush fluffy ones or adding some stylish new accessories. A soft watercolor pillow, spring-hued rug, fresh floral patterned tablecloth or even a simple dish towel will go a long way in waking up a tired room.

Hanging Branches

Bring the freshness of the outdoors inside by hanging a pretty tree branch on a wall in your home. Try hanging it over a table, or a bed, and complement it with artwork or mementos.

Low Floral Centrepieces

Float flowers and leaves in shallow bowls of water for a fresh centerpiece that will not hinder the view across the table.

Keeping Herbs at Hand

Plant small herbs in planters on a sunny kitchen windowsill. Not only is their flavor fresh - their color and scent add gorgeous pops of freshness to the room.

Fringed Chair Throw

Everyone has a favorite chair to relax in and often it’s not the prettiest one in the house. An easy way to give a tired chair a fresh new look is to drape a decorative throw over the back of it. Since it can be hard to find a throw that’s perfect for your space, create your own decorative throw from a favorite fabric (giving you endless color and pattern options) for the perfect room refresh!

Supplies list:

One yard of fabric

Four 49-yard balls of pearl cotton thread (or the same yardage of embroidery floss)

A large-eyed sewing needle (a needle threader is helpful too!)

Two safety pins


With the finished edge of your fabric hanging down, fold the left and right sides of your fabric under and drape your fabric piece over the back of your chair. If your fabric doesn't have a finished edge, fold under the raw edge and sew a simple hem to create one. 

Adjust the amount of fabric folded under each side until you get your desired width - about 18” wide works well for most chairs. If you're working with a patterned fabric, make sure the pattern is centered. Use safety pins to mark the spots on the left and right sides where the fabric is folded under – this is where you will start and stop your fringe.

Add decorative fringe to the bottom edge of your fabric by following these steps: 
 (1) Cut off about 14 feet of thread/floss and thread it through your needle. Starting near the edge of the fabric at the location that you marked with your first pin, thread your cotton thread through the fabric.
 (2) Pull all of the thread through except the last 7-8″.
 (3) Thread your needle through the fabric again beside (and close to) the first spot it was threaded through.
 (4) Pull all of the remaining thread through except a loop that’s about 7-8″ long. Repeat these steps until you've threaded your needle through the fabric ten times, leaving a 7-8″ loop each time.

Cut the loops of thread along with the last piece of thread that was threaded through so that they're all roughly the same length.

Make a knot by taking all of your pieces of thread, looping them through to form a knot, and then pulling the knot tight at the top.

Repeat for each piece of knotted fringe, moving 1/2″ down the fabric edge before starting each new piece of fringe. Continue until you get to the point marked by your second pin. Your finished piece of fabric will look something like this.

Now drape your newly fringed fabric over your chair back with the left and right sides folded under at the points where the fringe starts and stops. If you have a loose pillow on your chair, tuck the top of your fabric piece behind it. Otherwise, drape your fabric over the front of your chair and tuck it behind the seat cushion. 
Finally, give your fringe a trim so that it’s all about the same length (about 5-6″ long). Your tired chair now has a fresh new look that’s full of personality and style!
