Breathing new life into your home interiors can be a daunting task. With a little creativity, you can re-invent your current furnishings to suit your re-designed living space. Sustainability is a growing trend in the interior design world, and homeowners can combine vintage and contemporary styles for a brand new look, CBS News reports.

If you search garage sales or your attic, most people have their fair share of treasures that they don't have the time to refurbish. If you have an old coffee table or night stand, sanding and re-finishing the surface, then painting it to match your new decor, will give that unwanted piece of furniture a second chance.

Updating your lighting options could revitalize your living spaces by using your existing fixtures. For example, if you have a brass chandelier, repainting it can get rid of the outdated look. A coat of high gloss paint in a fun color like mustard yellow, teal or red could provide an extra punch for your interior.

Your own decor provides sustainable alternatives to a full-scale remodeling project, and you can incorporate this theme into your window treatments. Bamboo shades are earth-friendly and are manufactured without harsh chemicals and harvested from renewable sources.
