What better way to start the new year than feeling refreshed in your own home? Here are 5 easy steps to help you feel refreshed! 

1. Fresh coat of paint


It’s cold and gloomy outside. No better time to do it!

I must admit that taping ceiling is not my favorite thing in the world, so if you’re interested in improving your painting skills and saving some time look up this super helpful video on how to cut a straight line. I also highly recommend handy dandy brush from Home Depot.

Even if you’re painting the exact same color you’ll be able to tell the difference a nice and fresh coat of paint can make!

2. Re-arrange your furniture

Don’t be afraid! The worst thing that can happen is you’ll have to move it back. But sometime moving a piece of furniture a few inches here and there can make a great different in a flow of a house. You can start with something as small as swapping a picture from one room to another.

2. Spray paint is your friend

Spray paint is a great way to revamp some pieces of decorations. Think about items that aren’t handled on a daily basis, like a lamp base, decorative vases,  bookends and other small things. It's a great way to give an older item a new look. 

4. Live Plants

I was not born with the green thumb genes and I live in one the places with the LEAST amount of sunshine so it’s not very easy to find one that thrives in my house. Even though I’ve had my failures I continue to try. Indoor plants can not only hide awkward corners, add visual interest but they refresh and purify the air. Triple bonus! 

Would love to hear your thoughts on this. What do you do to refresh your home every once in a while?
