Here in Lexington it seems as if the cold winds and snow will never end. So I’ve decided to take matters in to my own hands and bring spring in, even if it does look like the arctic tundra out. I put together a list of my favorite tips that are always sure to brighten and bring life to any space.
Tip 1: Bring nature in.
Fresh flowers are a lovely way to add color to any space. Not to mention flowers are usually somewhat aromatic, perfect for a stuffy house and a great way to start off breaking out of the winter dullness.
Tip 2: Colorful throw pillows.
Throw pillows give you the opportunity to bring in vibrant colors and mix them together. The more pillows the better, your home with remain cozy but with a punch of color.
Tip 3: Patterned area rug.
Rugs pull a room together by bringing all the colors throughout the space together, while adding interest with pattern and texture.
Tip 4: Take advantage of windows.
The easiest of these tips is to fully take advantage of all your natural light. Position a lounge chair next to any window to soak up some sunlight throughout the day.
Tip 5: Adding mirrors to reflect more light.
Mirrors will not only brighten your home but will make it appear larger as well. There are many options; if you have the space, lean a full length mirror against a bare wall or group a handful of unique pieces together and hang them on the blank wall.
