6 Things We Love in January

The New Year is all about a fresh start, and that includes your living space. Here are some easy ways to update your room in 2015 — without breaking the bank.



Rainbow bright! Liven up a mantelpiece or console with an array of small-etched and transparent bottles [$250 each] by glass artist David Royce.

Light up your living room with a pair of these chic lamps [$196 each] from Kichler. Part of the Soleil collection, the glass globe lamps and white drum shade are neutral enough to match any décor.

Now this is a chair with a great spine. Add a pair of these eclectic cream chairs with nail-head detailing [$975 each] to your living or dining room for a guaranteed conversation starter, no bones about it.

Give your couch a makeover the easy way by adding a slipcover. The textured tweed slipcover [$130] in graphite from Sure Fit is soft and sophisticated.

Bling in the New Year by glamming up your kitchen counters. The new Logic tile collection from AKDO has on-trend metallic accents in real precious metals, including hues of black, silver, white, ivory and gold.
