"Umlauts, tildes, accents and punctuation can change a word or sentence's meaning. Similarly, sometimes all that's missing from your home is a little accent." I liked the phrase so much, I stole it from Living Social website.
It's true, though. Often a new lamp, a new chair or a new home accessory can perk your home up on these gloomy days of early winter in the Northwest or holiday season.
Sometimes, all you need to make a room great is a little "Cozy Up" table. Makes a great place for an egg nog.
