7 Ways to Wake Up Your Living Spaces This Winter

Around this time of year, I really start to get cabin fever. Stuck inside of our living spaces without enough sunlight has me craving a change. Between the Christmas greenery and lights gone inside our house and the skies always looking gray outside, everything seems to feel bland.

I’ve been doing a lot of window shopping to see if I could find a few pieces to wake things up a bit around here.
