January is always a hard transition for your home décor. Its time to put away all of the holiday festivity, but it also really doesn’t feel like spring. I like to use this transition time to reduce clutter and brighten everything up a little bit.
It feels so good just to empty out your rooms and put away all of that holiday décor. I sort of like starting with a really blank slate in each room, and then deciding where to go from there. Since I’m trying to be smart about spending this year, I really tried to work with pieces that I already had, and just styled them in new combinations.
Once of my most recent DIY projects was updating the picture frames above my bed. Before, I had one frame that I had painted white. It served its purpose, but it was time for an upgrade.
One way to make your home look stylish and more well designed is large scale art. Statement pieces feel more purposeful and can become the focal point for a room. For my bedroom, I chose 2 large scale skinny gold frames with large mattes to hold a 5″x7″ photo. I loved the contrast of the skinny frame with the thick matte. You can find a similar frame here!
My company recently announced that we would be working from home for another 9 months. After 6 months of making due in my at home office, I decided that it was time for a little bit of a room makeover. I wanted to adjust the room to more of a permanent office space that worked for my needs.
Before quarantine, I used my office room as more of an extended closet, guest bedroom, but also had a desk space. I rarely worked from home, so I didn’t use the desk space very often. Now that I use the space daily, it was time to adjust. I didn’t end up doing a major makeover, but a few tweaks made the space so much better for stress-free work!
Some easy updates you can do to make major change to your space include:
As we are spending more time at home, you may be considering remodeling or updating your home decor. Right now is a really good time to support small businesses, and these businesses can often provide unique items and creative inspiration.
I recently decided to overhaul my living room decor. I haven’t updated the room for a while, and was ready for a refreshed look, especially now that I have been spending more time at home.
Because I wanted to invest in some new decor, I took time to think through what I wanted and how it would all look together. Overall, I wanted the room to feel brighter, refreshed, and more pulled together. As I started shopping for pieces, I even created a diagram to help me decide!
When styling a couch with toss pillows, its important to balance whats similar about the pillows and whats different. You want the pillows to feel like they go together, but not be a formulaic copy and paste. Keep reading for my simple equation for styling toss pillows:
