How to Rethink Your Home For the New Year

Interested in adding new life to your home for 2022, but not sure where to start?

Style your bookshelves

While bookshelves should obviously hold plenty of books, they also look great with a few stylish pieces weaved in. Decorative items like vases, framed pictures, woven baskets, and plants can add a bit of dimension to your bookshelf, creating a more welcoming wall space.

Add plants


If you need to liven up your living space, indoor plants are the perfect addition to your home. If you have trouble keeping plants alive, it may be due to low light in your home. Check out our list of awesome low-light plants that will continue to thrive despite low sunlight levels! Oversized plants can make a huge impact when placed in empty corners, or smaller vine-like plants, like philodendrons, can be draped delicately over other decor and furniture to add a touch of greenery. Fake plants are another way to incorporate greenery, but we suggest that you use more real plants than artificial ones for the amazing health and mood benefits that come along with indoor plants!

Incorporate prints


Layering patterns may seem daunting, but they can actually transform the space into an Instagram-worthy hangout when combined correctly. Try mixing patterns within similar color families to keep the room looking cohesive.

Experiment with color

complimentary colors

Just like you use different patterns, we also encourage you to combine different colors. You may be tempted to use neutral colors like brown or tan, but trying out brighter colors can bring life into your living area without too much effort. Take a look at the color wheel to see which colors complement each other without directly matching. If you’re reluctant to commit to a bold color all over your walls, try an accent wall for a pop of color.

Use natural light

Natural sunlight can do wonders for a room and your mental health. Enjoy everything it has to offer by positioning your furniture around the windows and choosing furniture and accessories that accentuate light in the room. This includes mirrors, lightly woven curtains, and other furniture that reflects light.

Create a cozier bedroom

A home is nothing without a comfy bedroom to retreat to at night. To make your room feel cozier, incorporate natural lighting, warm colors, greenery, and quality bedding. Warm colors like maroon, gold, or rust orange can add warmth and comfort while also highlighting the natural sunlight coming through the windows. Real or fake greenery will also boost your mood, while hotel-quality bedding will improve your sleep so you can enjoy your new home during the day!
