The winter months can be a good time to give your living space a much needed lift. There are many simple ways to achieve this, and add new life to your home.
Flameless candles come in a variety of sizes, and can be used in many places where burning candles will not work. Group several of these on a mantle or use them in a powder room for a warm glow. Plants are also another way to add life and color to any area. If you don’t have a green thumb, many silk floral alternatives are available.
Toss pillows come in a variety of sizes and colors, and can easily change the look of your room. Add a warm and cozy throw or blanket to your favorite arm chair for an extra touch. New lamps can transform any space and brighten up your mood. Add a new mirror and create dimension to your walls. Use books to add height to accessories. They can also be grouped on a shelf for interest.
New placemats and napkins can change the look of any table, and will be sure to make all of your guests feel welcome. Interesting pottery and plates also can take your room to another level. Use a wreath as a centerpiece on a table and add a flameless candle with a hurricane glass for a new look. And don’t be afraid to re-arrange your furniture.
You will be surprised with the look that you create! Remember; it’s your space, so enjoy it!
