I am all about being happy and content with what you have. Bringing some freshness into your home is surprisingly simple, and can make a big difference in how you feel and how your home looks. Here are five easy ways to freshen up your home – this fall or anytime!
1. Add Some Color
Repainting is definitely room is one way to do this, but I am talking about easy ways to freshen up! So to add a pop of fresh color, try these ideas:
* Rotate out some colorful throw pillows on furniture
* Hang a couple prisms or suncatchers in windows for the effect
* Brightly-colored placemats and table runners add color to your table
* Decorate with fresh fruit and flowers to add a colorful punch
* Paint picture frames a funky color
2. Wipe Down Walls
This doesn’t have to be complicated – just a bucket of sudsy water and a rag, and you can remove years of grime from your walls. It may look like a fresh coat of paint, and it’s a lot easier and cheaper than painting!
3. Polish Wooden Furniture
This not only makes your wooden furniture gleam; it also makes your home smell great. Use something citrus-y for a really bright, clean scent. You can make your own furniture polish using olive oil and lemon or orange essential oil if you like.
4. Add Houseplants
Add some healthy, green houseplants to your windowsills and bring a wonderfully lively look to your rooms. Hanging houseplants also add drama and greenery. If you choose varieties that clean the air, then you’ll literally be freshening things up by making the air cleaner!
5. Get Rid of Clutter
It may be time to Konmari your home and get rid of anything that is not useful and which does not spark joy. Storage containers hide things but we need to ask ourselves why we have so much stuff we need to hide away.
