Heading into the new year, do you feel like your Sotheby’s Scottsdale home’s living room needs updating? It might seem a bit overwhelming to update but there are a few easy things you can do that’ll make a big difference. 


Nothing updates a room in your Sotheby’s Scottsdale home better than paint. You can do an all-over refresh on all of the walls or you can just paint an accent wall. With an accent wall, it’s a great way to branch out into colors, going with a deeper or brighter shade. If you go in this direction, don’t use huge paintings, draperies and furniture that’ll cover up the accent wall. But don’t leave the wall too bare either. 


When you walk into a room, many times your eyes gravitate toward windows. But are your window coverings in your Sotheby’s Scottsdale home doing the windows justice? Try new drapes or blinds to freshen up the look. 

Furniture Placement

One of the easiest things you can do to give your Sotheby’s Scottsdale’s living room a new look is change your seating arrangement. Is your couch against the wall or blocking a walkway? Move sofas and chairs so they stand out more. Adding or eliminating pieces can also freshen up the room. 

New rug

Sometimes all you need to spruce up your Sotheby’s Scottsdale home’s living room is a new rug. It’s an easy way to add color and warmth to a space. A rug can completely change the look of a room so you’ll want to choose it wisely. You’ll want to consider size, shape, color, and pattern. 

Art and accessories

If you don’t want to make changes with large items in your living room such as couches and chairs, try adding a piece of art or accessories. Accent pillows are a nice touch in your Sotheby’s Scottsdale home and can freshen up your entire color scheme. Designers recommend that if you add something in one place, subtract something in another. You don’t want to look like a hoarder. 

In the end, freshening up the living room in your Sotheby’s Scottsdale home might not take much effort at all. A few simple things should get the job done.
