Simple Ways to Brighten Up Your Home

I can’t think of anything I’ve waited for more, come lately, than the long-overdue-arrival of Spring!  I swear I can hear angels singing!

Come the new year, I start getting the itch to brighten up my home, add pops of cheerful color and tune into the lighter side of what’s coming in nature.  This means ditching the dark, drab and oh-so-over-it muted neutrals I use all winter.

Some of the easiest, and most cost effective ways, to achieve this is by swapping out your throw pillows.

DESIGNER’S TIP:  You’ve probably never noticed, but all of my pillows stay the same size and shape- they just change colors and patterns.  I keep my pillow investment low by simply buying new covers.  I reuse the same inserts over and over again!  Plus, being able to fold your off-season covers and store them neatly in a closet is way easier than trying to stash a bunch of cumbersome pillows. 


Another easy and inexpensive room brightener can be quickly put together by updating your ottoman/coffee table display!  I love to use trays (I HEART a great serving tray!) to display knickknacks and floral arrangements both on my tables and cocktail ottomans.

And don’t restrict your pillow love to your sofa and side chairs.  Swap out toss pillows on your bed for a fun, cheerful update, too!
