Always keep your large items neutral. Mine always remain the same: the bed frame, the desk, the lamps and the bench. I also like to use about four neutral pillows as staple items: two furry large ones in the back and two metallics in the front. My trick is to change the bedding set and the curtain panels for an easy and inexpensive refresh.

I love finding a bedding set at HomeGoods that includes the bedspread, shams and one or two accent pillows. It really helps you create a new feel, in one easy package. This pale blush continues to be a favorite in my book, and I knew it would work well in my neutral space.

Don’t be afraid to use some creativity! I’ve made this playful “Sleep In” sign for above the bed, which was very easy to paint. It won’t cost you much, and it will create a personalized touch.

Add some fresh flowers in a pretty white vase. They’re affordable, fragrant and fresh, and they can complement your new color palate.

Try an essential oil diffuser. They are a great way to create a calming and soothing space. It’s like a candle, without the fuss. This diffuser even has a color changing LED light for ambiance. Experiment with different essential oils to find your perfect scent.  I’ve been seeing more and more of these at HomeGoods recently and am happy I finally picked one up!

Add a neutral colored blanket to the end of your bed for added texture and comfort. When you’re ready for a seasonal change, simply change your bedding. For winter, I may chose another bedding set in a darker color, but all of my staple items will remain the same. Give it a try, and see how easy it is for yourself!
