How To: Spruce Up Your Space For the New Year

Don't wait till spring to start anew. The beginning of the year is the opportune time to make a fresh start.

Here are a few ways to create a space you can truly enjoy.

6. Rearrange

Why dream about it when you can have it? Whether you've been putting off redesigning your gallery or moving your bed towards the window for a dose of natural light, decide to do it now. 

5. Add some greens

Throw a few plants into the mix. Some species, such as succulents and cacti are easy to take care of, and indoor ferns look beautiful tucked away in corners. 

4. Apply a fresh coat of paint

Breathe life into the room with a bold, new color.  

3. Donate

Sometimes less is better than more. Give yourself some breathing room and donate. Not only will you help those in need, but it'll be much easier to shape your interior the way you envisioned it. 

2. Accent away

Maybe you already love the way your room looks. That doesn't mean you can't have a little fun. Pick up a few candles or a throw that would go perfectly with your couch. 

1. Make it yourself

Hop onto Pinterest or Instagram and find a project you would feel comfortable taking on. In the end you'll feel prouder knowing you reupholstered that chair or sewed those pillowcases.
