Add a splash of color



  1. Bring in some plants

Plants are a great way to bring “new life” into your home.  Houseplants are known to help improve your mood and, of course, they can help to clean the air in your home. Depending on what plants you use, you can even add some pops of color into your environment.  When it gets closer to spring consider adding vegetable and herb gardens into your house.  You can also occasionally buy some fresh flowers from the market and bring them home for some color!

  1. Remove the window screens

Windows screens are typically not needed during the winter months as most people don’t usually open their windows when it’s so cold outside.  Removing the screens can actually help to bring in more natural light.

  1. Add some color

Highlight your house with pops of color.  Use some vibrant throw pillows.  Add a colorful end table or lamp into a room.  Also add some color on the exterior of your house.  For example, you can place some brightly colored pots on your porch or some brightly colored lawn ornaments in your flower/landscape beds.  Concerned about the winter elements on these items?  No worries!  Treat these items with Rust-Oleum ReColor by Wipe New before placing them outside and rest assure knowing that they’re protected from the wet and cold.

  1. Play with light

Different types of lights can produce different moods for different people.  Some people prefer warm white and others prefer cool white.  Some bulbs work well for one room, while others work well for another.  Switch them up and see what you like best.  Also don’t forget to utilize natural light sources (i.e. candles and fireplaces).  While they don’t make your room brighter, they are warm, peaceful and relaxing after a long day.
