Swap out your lighting.

Trade in wall art for picture frames with meaningful memories

If you’ve been starting at the same artwork in your home for too long, it’s time to get inspired by printing a few of those 2173 photos from your camera roll. Travel, family, and nature shots are easy wats to personalize your surroundings.

Throw pillows…into your Goodwill donation box!

Explore a new color palette or pattern with newly thrifted throw pillows and blankets to give your space and instant refresh.

Re-accessorize the coffee table.

A decorative tray, vases, candles, and books all make great makeover pieces to reimagine a coffee or side table. Donate the clutter and keep what you love. And don’t forget fresh flowers or a plant help bring your space to life.

And as always… Declutter.

Pick a drawer, shelf or cabinet in any room and empty the contents. Replace only what you use and donate the rest. Making space for the things that really matter can make any room feel fresh and new.
