Hello there 🙂
A little over a year ago, my husband and I built our first house and moved in there. It was a whirlwind, to say the least, as we had to set it up in its entirety too. Moving from a two-bedroom apartment to a four-bedroom house after getting rid of everything is quite an undertaking, and I didn't have much time to think about small details like what we'd actually put on the coffee Table, and what to do with the areas of the blank wall that are needed something.
Now that I've been home all the bloody times I'm definitely noticing things we need more around the house and was on a mission to make those little upgrades that are going to have a big impact. If you're like me and can't even explain the excitement you feel when you get a new litter for the couch or a new plant (whether or not it may survive the winter), you've come to the right place. Keep scrolling to see all of my low-hassle, high-impact home decor upgrades currently in progress.
The effect that swapping a chair can have is amazing. I had one in my office that didn't really fit the space in size or aesthetics. I swapped it for this groovy little chair that I love to look at every day.
I'm always amazed at how much people love linen, so I finally tried a set for myself (specifically this Bed Threads set). I think I understand now. They're remarkably breathable and much softer than they look. Plus, I've learned to love the wrinkled look.
Large plants may not be cheap, but they are certainly cheaper than works of art. I've been working on filling empty wall spaces with lots of green recently. I don't have the greenest thumb though, so I'm seriously considering doing some of the faux.
I tend to go pretty heavily into neutral colors when it comes to home decor, so I try to use more colorful accents to wake things up a bit. It's a great way to freshen up your space without spending a lot of money.
As you know, coffee table books add a lot of personality to a home. I'm always on the lookout for beautiful ones that are fun to browse through.
A living room can always be a bit cozier – especially mine, as the ceilings are high and the floors are made of wood. I added pillows and throws in places as random as the mud room and it made a huge difference.
Splashes of color in the kitchen are very important – especially in my very gray kitchen. Something as small as a tea towel adds personality and fun to the most useful space.
If I don't have flowers to fill my favorite vases, I don't want them to just sit around collecting dust. So I came up with new ways to display them. My favorite hack right now is filling them with matchboxes. Functional and fancy.
