5 Budget-Savvy Revitalization Ideas


Craving a decor refresh in the new year but the effects of your generous holiday spirit are hitting home (and the bank)? We’ve got you covered. Here are five affordable and impactful ways to revitalize pieces you already own, adding instant chic to any room.

1. (Custom) Pillow Power

Budget-friendly decor refresh idea: custom pillows from Revitaliste

If your neutral colored sofa is making your room feel neutered, throw a pillow (or ten!) on it. Nothing more instantly and effortlessly refreshes a sofa or arm chair than a smattering of decorative pillows. Create a bespoke (and budget-friendly) look by mixing store-bought and custom-made pillows. The sky is the limit with custom pillows–bold fabrics, varied shapes and sizes and funky trims are our go-to design details.

 2. Hardware Upgrade

Budget-friendly decor refresh idea: Upgrade drawer hardware Revitaliste

If you're like us, upgrading your drawer hardware seems WAY easier than upgrading your tech hardware. The world of drawer knobs and pulls is vast...as is the transformative power these little "furniture accessories" have on even the most tired-looking dresser or desk. Here's a mini roundup of some of our favorite drawer hardware styles.

3. Prize Inside

Revitaliste fabric lined shelves

Our days of cereal consumption may be over but that doesn't mean we can't find a prize inside other types of boxes...like a favorite credenza or nightstand! To totally customize a case piece, line the drawers and shelves with a unique fabric or wallpaper. There's something deeply gratifying about opening up a drawer and being greeted by a pretty pattern.

4. Fairest Of Them All

Revitaliste lacquered mirror frames

Rather than gazing IN the mirror, this quick decor refresh will have you (and everyone else) staring AT the mirror. Spice up a bare wall or entryway with a freshly lacquered mirror frame. And an added benefit of zhooshing up your mirror...everyone looks more glamours when framed in glossy lacquer!

5. Shade-y Business

Revitaliste custom lampshades

A unique lamp can light up a room in more ways than one. We all know unique lamp bases score big style points. But the often overlooked and under-appreciated lampshade has serious showstopper potential (and frequently for a much lower price point than the base). We love wrapping simple (hum)drum shades in vibrant fabrics and wallpapers for a truly one-of-a-kind fixture.
