Divas and Divos, welcome! Tis the season to bring out the pumpkin spice and everything nice!
I can smell the fresh fall air 😊
The fall season is the kick-off for not only the holidays to come but also the new school year, as well as the beginning of the new goals that need to be accomplished. Something I hope to accomplish every year (or let’s be honest: every few years 😊) is freshening up my home.
Let’s take a pause and think to ourselves, am I happy with the way my home looks? Do these spaces still feel like me?
If you responded no to either of these questions, read on as I dive into 4 Ways Use Home Accessories to Keep your Space Feeling Fresh.
It’s time to let go of anything in your life that no longer brings you joy. Regularly purging your space makes room for fresh energy and keeps clutter, dust, and worn out items from piling up. Not sure what to get rid of? Look at an item and ask yourself if you would buy that in a store today. If the answer is no, get rid of it.
Assess the Layout of your Space
Take the time to look at your layout of your room. Does it still serve the overall function of the space? Do you need that oversized chair no one sits on? Do you wish you had more storage? Just because your furniture has been in the same spot for a long time, does not mean it needs to stay there! Experiment with new furniture configurations to find what works best for you.
Neutrals vs Colors
Keep your large furniture pieces neutral! When purchasing larger furniture pieces consider if you will love it 5, 10, or even 15 years down the line. If you’re truly passionate about adding your favorite color throughout your space, chose to do it in a more cost-effective way – pillows, throws, vases, florals, etc. This gives you the option to replace these items down the road for an easy facelift!
Treat your home to a deep clean! It’s time to get those soft treatments laundered, that area rug professionally cleaned, as well as the interior and exterior of your windows. When deep cleaning your home not only will it look better but you most likely will feel fresher as well. You know your home better than anyone else, so clean what feels right to you!
