  • Check your walls – what can you move around?  Moving a gallery wall to a new area, or just your regular decor around can give a fresh look.
  • Paint your frames or wood trim on mirrors.  For under $20, you can get a can of chalk spray paint and give your frames and mirrors a fresh coat and a new color!  Give it an afternoon on a nice day and add one or two coats – it’s a simple easy trick to update your current decor.
  • Get some dollar store frames and print out some free printables for a quick inexpensive addition to your calls.  Pinterest has a ton of free printables, or you can find a bunch on Etsy for $1.  Print at home or your local print store and viola! Simple and cute!


  • Add a plant or fresh flowers – if you don’t have a green thumb like me succulents are a perfect compromise.  They bring in a fresh feeling and usually you can find them pretty inexpensive and they go with everything.
  • Use what’s around you outside – take some branches and spray paint with glitter paint for a holiday look.  Pop in a vase to finish!  Press flowers or leaves for pretty nature prints and put in dollar store frames when complete.
  • Take away any decor that feels cluttering to you.  It may be a few figurines or kitchen bowls, but if you feel like the area they are in gets cluttered a lot, or feels blah, move them into a closet or storage for a little and see if you miss them.  Give it a week or two and decide if there is another place you can display them.


  • Try to keep the same color palette throughout.  A simple clean look can really bring comfort to the mind.
