My husband and I have been living in our home for almost 8 years! We bought it as newlyweds and between purchasing the house and furnishing it we didn't have a lot of money for decorating and making improvements, like painting. I always figured that once I figured out what my personal style was, we would make some changes to fit our personalities. Well someone should have told me that being poor newlyweds is nothing compared to being a poor stay at home mom, with two kids. All of that to say that we have only made improvements to one room in the whole house. Everything else is what I like to refer to as "builder boring."
Whiteish wall and white switch plates throughout the whole house. Leviton has come to the rescue! Their new line called Renu® can update any room in a snap.
According to the website, the Renu devices fit into the standard wallbox and they are easy to wire. Once you get everything wired up, the sky is the limit with your switches, wall plates, and outlets. There are twenty colors to choose from and even a stainless steel look for the wall plates. I can imagine this fitting in so well into any room. Instead of your switches being strictly utilitarian, you can work them into your room design. I am totally a commitment phobe when it comes to home decor, so I love that I can switch these out easily!
Leviton is hosting three different twitter parties to help spread the word about Renu. Of course there will be prizes too, what's a party without some prizes? Here are the dates:
Wednesday, April 18th 9pm EST
Thursday, April 26th 9pm EST
Wednesday, May 2nd 9pm EST
All you need to do is follow @Leviton and #Renu for the twitter events and participate in the discussion and you can possibly win some Home Depot gift cards! Leviton is offering 2 sets of Broadway tickets as a grand prize for the twitter party on Wednesday night! Join in on the fun and see if you'll win!
I really recommend checking out the Renu website. There is even a demo where you can mix and match the colors and get a feel for how they will look.
