“Shopping at my home” is one of my favorite ways to freshen up a space and reimagine ways to reuse the decor I have on hand. I am not big on buying winter decorations and prefer to use what I have to change up the overall look in my home. I put away the reds and sparkles from the holidays and left out the wintery greens.

For my dining room, I kept the faux winter plants in the chandelier and cleaned up our dining table for a more simple look by placing a vintage bin, glass bottles and winter greens that were previously laid out on the table during the holidays.

I did away with the winter tree in our sunroom and brought in a chair and some vintage books from my living room to give the space an overall simple yet welcoming look.

Not only did I incorporate some key pieces from my home and moved them into new spaces, I also simplified my decor and packed away the clutter from Christmas.

We Challenge You!

As we get deeper into the season, the winter blues start to set in for me and I’m in need of spring! Join me as I take on my “Winter Blues Room Refresh Challenge”. I am setting a budget goal for $350 to freshen up our bathroom and sharing all the details about it over on my Instagram.

I encourage you to also challenge yourself with a room refresh challenge and set your own budget and goals!
