Let’s turn our attention to the season of warmth and light. We all know winter is a time to rest and rejuvenate. Why not take a cue from Mother Nature and embrace the downtime to improve our surroundings and come back better and brighter in the spring? As you dodge the raindrops of January and continue to stay safe at home, use this time to update your living space for cozy comfort in the months to come. Here are some ways to take a fresh good look at your home and make small changes that will bring joy.
Tip 1: Get Reward Points for Home Improvements
Use your O Bee credit or debit card when you make home décor purchases and earn rewards points. Rewards points are redeemable for home goods, electronics, and travel. Remember travel? Brighter days are coming. Let’s get ready! If you’re making purchases, use the card that does double-duty and earn Rewards points too.
Tip 2: Choose an inspiration piece
This is a simple exercise that helps to give structure to a home décor project. Do you have a favorite piece of furniture? Do you have a beautiful wall hanging? Consider deciding on an “inspiration piece,” then choose the rest of the room décor around that piece. For example, if you just love a large painted canvas that you bought at a home décor store, consider making it your inspiration piece. Add pillows, throws or small ceramic pieces with complementary colors and shapes from the canvas. It’s a way of updating a room and making it cohesive without too much cost.
Tip 3: Move things around
No doubt you’ve got a lot of things you already love in your house. Try this fun exercise. Rearrange furniture or take items off the walls and move them to a different place in your home. You will be surprised what a new location can do for a favorite piece.
Tip 4: Paint
You’ve heard it before, but it’s true. It’s really amazing what a coat of paint will do for a wall or room. Once you’ve painted, incorporate some of the suggestions in Tips 2 and 3. You will likely love being in the new space you’ve created.
