Although 2020 is over and we all might be breathing the teeniest sigh of relief, we’re still spending more time at home than ever before and you might be starting to feel like the rooms and spaces around you need some refreshing.
1: add some green
Plant Parents increased exponentially in 2020, so if you haven’t hopped on this bandwagon yet, we’re waving at you emphatically. House plants are not just aesthetically pleasing; they’re proven to reduce fatigue, lower stress and anxiety, improve your air quality and office performance and focus.
2: reconfigure your layout
Sometimes when we think or hear of refreshing spaces, we can feel beleaguered at the thought of selling and/or buying more stuff. However, you don’t have to approach your living room with a tape measurer and budget notebook in hand. (Although, if you are looking to add some new pieces to your house, check out our new hand-curated collections available now!) In order to spruce up your spaces, try moving your furniture and wall décor around in a way that still fits the space, but gives it a new, fresh feeling. Cheat code: mix and match pieces from other rooms in your house– not just the room you’re in!
3: choose a new paint color or wallpaper
If you are willing to spend a little bit of cash and time, picking out a new paint color for your space, plus tips 1 and 2 can make your living room, work-from-home space, or bedroom feel like an entirely new space. Try an accent wall or a daring technique you’ve had pinned for months. And believe it or not, wallpaper is back, so you can indulge in that pattern you’ve been making heart eyes at for a while now.
We hope you found these helpful! Here’s to 2021 and hoping you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.
