Simple Winter decorating ideas to wake up your space


After taking down the Christmas decor, I’m always torn  between liking the openness and feeling like the house looks too bare. Whether you prefer to keep things looking lush, or completely uncluttered I have some ideas for you today. And because most of us keep our post holiday spending to a minimum, you won’t have to break the bank for any of these concepts.

If you don’t have the time or budget for a full room makeover, I find that making small changes like these over time eventually will give you a room  that you love. Just like with anything else in life, small steps add up to big results!

  4. I love the fresh greenery. I don’t have a green thumb, but have always loved the idea of having a ton of plants. When I used a company called Furnishr (http://furnishr.com) to decorate my living room, I actually chose the design because it had a a green natural accent, so that if I wanted to start keeping plants it would match!

    1. I don’t know where that one came from, but you can find similar signs at RedLetterWords.com.

  6. Hi . Do you remember where you got the Mother Teresa quote sign? I love the simplicity of it and I’m having a hard time finding one with that same simple font. Thank you!
