easy ways to freshen up your home

If you're like me, you are consistently looking for ways to mix things up and add some fresh touches to your home. I think that because of my profession, our home will be a never-ending cycle of changing things up. In fact, our home is our  "lab" where we have the opportunity to experiment and try new things.  If you are also eager for a little change here are some really easy ideas to bring some new life to your space!

Fresh contemporary greenery


I can't say I've always been a fan of greenery indoors. When we bring this up, hopefully your mind doesn't flash back to the faux ivy that seemed to top every upper cabinet and the pile of potted plants that took over the corner of your living room. That's how I used to feel about greenery indoors .... But, I'm here to tell you that it can be the single factor that literally brings your space to life! Greenery has the tendency to create warmth in any environment and really becomes the perfect accessory if done right.

Of course you might be thinking,  "I'm that person that kills any plant I've ever tried to plant." Try simply adding a few fresh stems to a vase of water, or even using something non-living. There are just a few companies out there that do faux arrangements right. :) However you do it, I'm telling you.. game-changer.

Updated fresh and clean bedding | Master bedroom design


Something so simple like changing your bedding can have a huge impact on your bedroom. If you're going for fresh and clean, try light neutral color palettes. We love white bedding as a base (feels like that nice hotel you dream of going back to) with colored accent pillows on top. 

Fresh new pillows | Living room design


Last but not least, change up the pillows in whatever room you are working with. This is one of our favorite places to incorporate color and pattern because it is so easy to switch out! We enjoy using pillows that are synonymous with the seasons - warm and soft in the winter, and colorful and crisp in the summer. 

We hope you found something inspiring to try out in your home. Now, who's excited for spring?!
