Where the heck did January go?
Well, the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, and it is time to enjoy some peace! But does anyone else feel like this time of year is a little ho-hum? Even though I enjoy the peace I always feel like I need a little visual uplift! Shifting those household winter blues can be simple by making minor adjustments to your interior decor, and I have assembled a few ideas.
*Change out your pillow covers and throws; just adding a new color or texture can shift the mood of a space.
*Paint is another excellent way to add some life; choose an accent wall or paint the back of the bookcase in an alternate color that adds a complement to your existing decor. ( checkout our paint guide for the color of the year)
*Move your accessories around and edit out the tired ones. Freshen it up with a few thoughtful purchases
*Swap out your art to a different wall or purchase a new piece that speaks to you.
*Change out the rug or add another small rug over a larger neutral carpet to add a splash of excitement.
*Bring the outside in by adding plants to your space. Plants breathe life into a room and add to your home’s air quality and health!
