Home is where we go to rejuvenate and renew, a place to enjoy time with loved ones and make memories. And each person’s home tells a different, unique story. The beginning of a new year is a good time to reflect on whether the story your home is telling still fits. Does it accurately portray who you are and what’s important to you? If not, what better way to start the new year off on the right note than with a quick refresh of the space that means so much to you? Here are five tips to help you get started.

Re-evaluate the space

Take a look around your home and figure out what’s working and what isn’t. Start with the positives. Maybe the big pieces, like the furniture, are comfortable and perfectly functional for you and your family. Maybe you love the way the artwork in your home reminds you of the people you love and the places you’ve been. But also, maybe there are things that have seen better days and don’t really reflect your style or personality anymore.

Simple changes can make a big impact. Remove the things that make your space feel tired and outdated. You don’t need a floor-to-ceiling overhaul to refresh your space. Accents like a textured pillow, a fresh set of sheets, a unique bedspread, or even a nature-inspired place setting can go a long way to giving your space a much-needed sprucing up. 

Look to the latest trends

When you’re looking for inspiration to renew and rejuvenate your space, check out what’s trending. Two wildly popular tv shows have recently had a huge impact on home design. The breathtaking setting of Yellowstone has inspired a lodge and ranch revival, while designer Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper fame started the modern farmhouse craze. Homeowners are looking to incorporate the feel and the spirit of these two styles into their decor in everything from bedding and furniture to textiles, accessories and accent pieces.  

Tailor a space with clean, simple lines


Simplicity is the key to creating an environment that allows you to live your best life, and informal and casual decor is what most homeowners are looking for. Set the stage for your freshly updated interior with a calming neutral palette. This will provide a unifying feeling throughout your space and allow personalized touches like artwork, linen, table settings and functional objects to shine through.

Add color and texture

Mix in rich, colorful accents like this earthy turquoise pottery. Toss a cozy textured throw across the back of your sofa. Add a vibrant new rug underfoot. Rethink the lighting in your space with a funky new lamp. Good design is all about layering. Look for ways to introduce pops of color and texture to bring interest to your spaces and truly make them your own.

Bring the outdoors inside

Homeowners are craving a deeper connection with the great outdoors in their spaces, and decor inspired by nature continues to be highly sought after. Look no further than your mountain home’s beautiful surroundings for inspiration. Then incorporate gorgeous mixed woods, artwork inspired by local flora and fauna, natural fibers such as jute and sisal, woven baskets and macrame plant hangers.
