Any easy tip to get started with your spring refresh is to change out your rugs. Rugs can start as the base of your design and can help to build your color palette. Not to mention, any old rug may be collecting dirt and bacteria among other things. You can shop some of our favorites here.

A quick and easy way to add a pop of color and increase the oxygen flow in your house (without opening a window) is to add some greenery. Real plants are fantastic, but there are also some great faux options in case you aren’t ready to commit to keeping a plant alive or you just have pets that may be allergic.

Invest in new furniture

One of the biggest ways to change the look of a space is to change out or add in a new piece of furniture…or 2…or 6. Maybe it’s time to switch out your sofa or maybe you have been searching for perfect accent chair and now you have the time to focus on that. Dining chairs might be on your list since we are all eating at home more these days. Whatever the case may be, your space will look new and refreshed with a new piece and maybe it will keep you from fully going stir crazy. 🙂

Bring in new lighting

There are so many ways you can do this and it can be as easy as adding a new floor lamp behind your sofa or as difficult as switching out your chandelier. No matter if you are looking for a new table lamp next to your bed or a whole new style in your kitchen, you can shop some of our favorite lighting options below.
