Many of us don’t have the time or financial luxury to fund a complete interior revamp every season. However, you don’t need to spend a ton of time or money in order to give your home a fresh update for the holidays.

This week’s featured look offers some simple solutions for last minute decorating. If you’re expecting guests, these quick fixes are a great way to add some festivity in an easy way.
