Refresh With Throw Pillows

Last week we talked about refreshing your home after the Christmas decor comes down. Well, what better way to refresh your home than with new throw pillows? Pillows instantly and easily give your room a new look. I'm a huge fan of pillow covers because you can take them off for washing and switching things up. Covers can also be cheaper than pillows.

I've pulled some choices together that can help you refresh your space! I may be a little partial to blues!

7 / 8 / 9
10 / 11 / 12

Don't forget to grab yourself some pillow inserts. I prefer down feathered inserts. They can be re-fluffed and don't go flat like polyester inserts.

What's your favorite source for pillow covers?

Transitioning from Christmas to Winter Decor

One of those tricky transition periods is after Christmas when all the decorations come down. We take down our trees and ornaments and are left with what feels like a blank slate. It can almost feel empty where the tree once was. For myself, I took it as a chance to de-clutter and purge a lot of the old Christmas items I hadn't used in years. There were also many regular home decor items I was holding on to but really had no need for. My style has changed over the years and I knew I wasn't going to use them.

I have a few tips on decorating your home for winter.

1. Use natural elements

I think one of the things that can stay during winter is the greenery. We've already used these things for Christmas so by removing the ornaments and color, we are prolonging their use. Wreaths and garland add a nice touch of outdoors. Branches are also a great way to bring the outdoors in.

2. Bring in cozy pillows and throws

There is no better way to stay cozy indoors that wrapped up in a warm blanket. I am one that usually doesn't decorate with blankets much. My kids fight over them and they end up on the floor.




3. Use neutral colors

By removing the bright, bold colors from Christmas, you are creating a calm environment. Just like fresh fallen snow outside, the neutrals are quiet and peaceful.

So what's your take on winter decor? What are some ways you make your new found home cozy and warm for the colder months?

Action

Happy New Year!

Yes, I know it's been a hot minute since I posted.

The first post of the year is about where I want my blog to go this year. Last year's motto was "Make It Happen". You read all about it in this post. I started this blog to share home projects and gain inspiration from other Home Decor and DIY blogs. This was just supposed to be an outlet and a way for me to express my love for the growing decor ideas in my head.

With the growing of Instagram and all the pretty pictures, I realized that home decor is my passion. It is totally rocking my world. I want to do this for a living. As a career. So my word for the year is Action.



Webster's definition of ACTION:
A thing done.
The accomplishment of a thing over a period of time.
An act of will.

It's time for me to take action and take a leap of faith. Last year I launched E-design and took on a few clients. I'm ready to bust this thing wide open. I want my inbox to be flooded with clients. I want to take the design world by storm! This is my year. If I can think it, I can achieve it. I truly believe this is my calling. Nothing is going to happen unless I make the moves and get this thing moving.

I do realize further classes and training may be involved but I am up for the challenge. I want this BAD!

I am open to your stories and any suggestions on getting myself on the right track. It's time to get this thing done!
