This time of year it’s not uncommon to hear the phrase “new year, new you.” But we’re all about celebrating who we are — so we’ve changed our 2020 ethos to “new year, new home.” What better way to start 2020 off than by breathing new life into your space?
With advice from Marie Kondo and HGTV pouring in, where do you even start? Luckily, we’ve got some ideas. With these five items, you’ll be on your way to reorganizing and refreshing your home before the New Year’s decorations get put away.
There’s no better way to freshen up a space than with some greenery. Real or faux, plants of all types can bring life and vibrancy into living spaces, bedrooms, and even bathrooms. To determine which plants are right for you, take a look at your space and identify the quality of light it receives — direct light will allow you to add real plants, while darker rooms could be better served by fake ones. From there, try a smaller plant on a coffee table, or a hanging plant for a crisp, modern look.
- Wall Storage
While we tend to prioritize decorating side tables or dressers, wall storage is a great way to add style and function to a space. Floating shelves are a minimalist yet useful storage option, and can hold art, plants, or trinkets that bring depth to your home. In the kitchen or entry-way, a bulletin board is a go-to option to keep schedules organized — this gold board is an updated, yet still functional take.
- Decorative Pillows
If you’re looking for a fast and inexpensive way to spruce up any room, decorative throw pillows might be just what the designer ordered. Toss pillows come in an endless array of prints and patterns, adding a perfect pop of color to any room and to fit any mood. In fact, you can even rotate throw pillows out to compliment your other seasonal decor. We recommend incorporating some bright and bold floral patterns alongside more muted colors to spring into the spirit of spring.
If you need function and style, look at adding some stunning baskets to your space this year. Baskets are affordable, easy and look great when proudly displayed in a room. With endless options from woven wicker or round wire to cloth, it’s easy to match them to a room and find your perfect style. So if you want to transform your knack for organizing into a statement piece for your favorite room, grab a basket today.
Last but certainly not least, a straightforward way to refresh the home is by incorporating some refreshing new scents. Candles come in a variety of shapes and scents and are a timeless option to make the home smell great. We’re embracing a modern approach these days by using a diffuser and essential oils. Research suggests these handy little devices are excellent for boosting your mood and relieving anxiety. Plus, they’re inexpensive and an absolute breeze to use.
