Hi everyone, Gaby from The Vault Files here, thrilled and honored to be a house guest on Because it's Awesome! I was very excited when Tobe contacted me to take part in this great series, and because I'm moving back home in a couple of months (I've been living in a very VERY remote island for the past 15 months) I couldn't find a topic more fitting than redecorating.

Do you ever feel like you want to throw everything out the window and start from zero? I often do, but, before actually doing that, I like to keep in mind some small (and not so expensive) changes that can go a long way:


And just as in Fashion, try to identify what can stay as is, what has the potential to be reinvented, and what needs to be tossed/donated/sold ;)

Do you have any tips on redecorating? I would love to hear!

Gaby is so right on with these tips. I think paint especially has an incredible way of transforming a room. And it's kind of therapeutic as well!

Holy crap that purple paint is scary and amazing at the same time... I really need to grow a pair.

Good tips!

This is definitely the best advice! Before you scrap the whole thing, switch it up, I always find I end up in love with it again (c:
