Much Needed Comfort & Joy

When it comes to reflecting on 2020, where do you start? This year upended everyone’s life in one way or another. It both isolated us and – in some ways – brought us together.

We heard from several previous clients who reached out to simply let us know how much the spaces we helped them redesign have improved their quality of life (and happiness) during this stay-at-home year. We love hearing this! It’s an honor to be invited into a family’s home and to help them make a meaningful difference in their lives.

To help you make a positive change to your family’s home and general well-being, the Arlington Home Interiors team has created a quick-resource guide based on tips we provided earlier this year. From planning a productive home office to updating your kitchen without a remodel, we hope there’s something that meets your current needs.


6 Home Office Essentials: Remember the days when working from home meant “working” (wink, wink) from home. Boy, those days are long gone. Now, the reality is you have to be productive at home. Working on your laptop on the sofa surrounded by a million distractions is not going to cut it. We’ve put together a list of home office essentials to help you stay productive and get down to business at home.

Why You Should Reconsider Wallpaper: Wallpaper has definitely made a comeback (especially on Instagram) in the last couple of years. But if you ask an interior designer, wallpaper never went out of style! Designers love it because it can offer more drama and dimension than paint. The design options are infinite and installing (and moving) is easier than ever.

5 Décor Trends You Won’t Regret in 2025: We like to be aware of trends, but we don’t feel obligated to follow them. Design should be personal, make sense functionally, and should stand the test of time. You can’t go wrong with this list.

5 Ways to Update Your Kitchen Without Remodeling: Your kitchen is a space you’re in almost every day and if it’s not bringing the joy, it’s time to change things up. We have five ideas for kitchen improvements that won’t require a remodel. Some of the ideas you can do yourself, others may require some outside help, but the changes will be dramatic.

Hopefully one or more of these ideas will help you make significant improvements to your living space this winter. Just remember, you don’t need a full-blown renovation to experience big changes. You can do it! Getting started is the hardest part – and since you’ve read this – consider yourself on your way!



It’s been a challenging year, but I sincerely believe that brighter days are ahead. From the entire Arlington Home Interiors team, we wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season filled with love and peace. Stay healthy and safe.
