Are you in need of some lightness during these dark cold days of winter?
Here are 5 Grace Notes to help bring clarity and lightness into your home~
1. Accessorize – it’s what separates us all!
Be smart about accessories. Accent pillows in a bold color or pattern, a bright-colored or white throw blanket and colorful fixtures will brighten up an otherwise dull room during the winter. For example, the palette of Mauve and Copper is a wonderful way to add lightness & brightness to your home in the winter months.
2. Don’t let your Rugs just lay there!
Does your area rug make the room brighter? If you have a dark rug, there’s a good chance it makes the room a little too dark in the winter. Try changing it out with a lighter area rug for the season or just remove it for a few months to let your shiny hardwoods reflect natural light.
3. Declutter . . . and Discover!
Clutter can make a room look smaller and even darker than it should be. This winter, take just 10 minutes a day to declutter an area at a time to stay organized.
4. Create brightness with Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers add a pop of color and life to an otherwise dark and dull space. Brighten up your living room this winter with a vase of bright flowers and use a colorful arrangement to bring a fresh look to a kitchen or bathroom. Purchase bouquets of store bought flowers and let your light shine through the home!
5. Use Mirrors . . . in the right places!
Hang a mirror to help fill a room with natural light and make it brighter. To do this, hang a mirror opposite a window or sliding glass door so the light bounces off the mirror and floods the space.
