"Changing small things seasonally will help you feel like you're keeping it fresh, without spending huge amounts of time or cash."

Renovating or redecorating a home is not only costly, but also time-consuming. Luckily, even the smallest change can have the biggest impact.

Creekside Home Décor in Chilliwack has spent 11 years building a shop that caters to a wide range of housing needs by ensuring that they carry a little “something for everyone” at everyday prices.

“We all like a little change once in a while,” says owner Gail Roscoe, “so changing small things seasonally will help you feel like you’re keeping it fresh, without spending huge amounts of time or cash in the process.”

Tips for making small changes to your home:

 When choosing furniture and décor, opt for styles and colours that appeal to you, rather than whatever is the trend at that moment. There are no rules when it comes to decorating for longevity.

“If you are tired of a piece of furniture, maybe try new hardware or a new colour on it,” says Roscoe. “You’d be amazed at what a difference those two things can make to the piece, and in turn, change the whole room.”

Fragrance can also play a large part in making your home feel cozy. Alternate fragrances depending on the season and it will bring an entirely new mood to a room.

“We love helping people feel comfortable choosing treasures that will make their home a place they enjoy being,” she says.

Come celebrate the coming season with Creekside at their Christmas Open House. They are closed from Sunday, Oct.16 to Tuesday, Oct. 18 so that a wonderful team of friends can bring in the trees and transform the shop into a Christmas fantasy.

The Christmas Open House is Wednesday, Oct. 19 from 10 a..m. to 8 p.m.

“This is a long-standing tradition which many people look forward to every year,” Roscoe says.

“All the Christmas treasures that have arrived will be beautifully set out in homey displays. Our consignors are working hard to bring their beautiful Christmas creations in next week, as they always have a strong and beautiful presence in our Christmas shop.”

There will be refreshments, free gifts with purchase for the first 120 customers, and three lucky people will win $50 gift certificates (no purchase necessary).
