3 Simple Ways to Cheer Up Your Home this Winter
Spring is just around the corner but here in Prescott, we’re still experiencing the occasional gray, chilly days of winter. If the winter blues have you feeling like your home is more of a prison and less of an escape from cold days, try these 3 simple ways to cheer up your home this winter.
1.) Add fragrance: Walking into your home and being welcomed by a nice scent is a great way to cheer up your home instantly. Choose organically scented candles in your favorite fragrance, diffuse some uplifting aromatherapy oils, or simply take items from your kitchen like orange slices and nutmeg and steep them in water in a heat-safe container over a votive or tea light candle for a more subtle scent.
2.) Lighten up: Dark, gray days that may you feel ho hum needn’t affect your home’s interior. Add a warm, happy glow to your home by replacing cold or harshly lit bulbs with softer daylight bulbs. Sometimes rooms need a little more light to brighten up the space. Design experts recommend having at least three points of light in any room. And if you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, it provides a great source of soft lighting as well as a homey, comfortable heat source.
3.) Bring the outdoors in: Winter tends to kill off your favorite colorful blooms so why not bring the outdoors in and add a few new plants to your home? Nothing brightens up a home quite like natures energy. Try flowering branches in a brightly colored vase, hanging plants in the corner of your kitchen, or arranging succulents on your window sill. Whatever plants grab your attention, add a few of your favorites in each room to cheer up your home.
Winter comes and goes and before you know it we’ll be sweating like crazy in the summer heat. But there’s no reason your home can’t still be your sanctuary on cloudy days. Try out one or all of these 3 simple ways to cheer up your home this winter this weekend and see what feelsright for your home.
