With the holiday craziness behind you, it’s time to hit the refresh button! Breathe new life into your space with 5 easy updates that will instantly perk up your home for the season.

1) Go Green

Adding a touch of something green is a quick and easy way to bring life to the living room. Save money and time with faux florals, succulents, and house plants that look just like the real thing. They never need watering and require exactly zero effort to keep them looking fresh and green.

2) Tidy Up

Stay neat in style. A fabric-covered box with a pretty pattern serves as a lovely accent piece and clever hideaway to stash mail, do-dads, or children’s toys. Large, hand-woven baskets also provide a pretty place to tuck away extra blankets, pet toys, or a yoga mat.

3) Cushion your budget

Here’s the beauty of the throw pillow: It’s an inexpensive way to bring a pop of color and a touch of texture to any room. By just simply changing out the pillows and adding a decorative throw for each season, you can give your sofa and chairs a whole new look. (For a whole lot less.)

4) Roll Out the New Carpet

Is your favorite rug starting to look frayed? We all know how that feels. Roll out a new one with a new color scheme. Coordinate the colors or patterns with your throw pillows to weave a beautiful story that envelopes the whole room.

5) Raise the Bar

We raise our glasses to this bar cart which does double-duty as a side table. Stack magazines or coffee table books with a pretty accessory on top. Underneath, you can house cocktail fixings and glasses. (Hey, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere.)
