Do you ever feel like a certain room in your home (or maybe just your home in general) needs a facelift? Like maybe it has a case of the blahs…but when you look around you aren’t exactly sure how to spruce it up? I’m not talking about remodeling (although that definitely has its place). I’m thinking more along the lines of making simple tweaks to freshen up a space that’s maybe a bit outdated or boring. It can be overwhelming to know where to start when you experience that feeling.
But don’t worry, friend: I got you! I am by no means a professional home decorator (though maybe in another lifetime), but I do have a passion for giving spaces much-needed facelifts. Just a few weeks ago my sister asked me to redecorate her bathroom and omg it was SO MUCH FUN. Like, we went shopping and bought stuff for her bathroom one night, but since it was so late we had to wait until the next morning to dive in. Oh man, let me tell you–waiting until the next day was TORTURE for me. Put me in a room that needs some sprucing up and give me a budget…it’s better than Christmas I tell ya.
Ok, so today I want to share THREE simple ways to give your spaces a little upgrade. Nothing crazy; I promise this is not hard or overwhelming or expensive. I’m a HUGE believer in simplicity and affordability when it comes to decorating. 85% of my decor is from Target! The rest is Hobby Lobby and Amazon. You can make a space look phenomenal with super simple and budget-friendly tweaks. The idea is not to spend a whole bunch of money or go crazy tearing up your house from the ground up. Instead, just be willing to spend a few bucks on the small details. And if you feel like an entire room needs a facelift, pay attention to each individual SPACE in that room. Start small by focusing on the details in ONE SPACE instead of tackling the entire room at once. Then move onto the next space.
Ok, let’s dive in. Here are THREE simple ways to update and freshen up any space in your home.
I am maybe a bit obsessed with trays, but I swear they pull things together so well and make any space look super chic and organized. The idea with trays is to take functional items and mix them with decor (I love plants; almost every single tray in my house holds a plant of some kind). The result is total (functional) eye candy; a cute tray with some greenery plus items that you use every day, all corralled in one intentional space? Yes please.
As seen in the tray pictures above, greenery is just a given. And there are so many cute and inexpensive plants/trees out there to liven up a space! A good majority of my plants are from Hobby Lobby, Homegoods or Target!
#3-BASKETS, OTTOMANS, BENCHES, STOOLS
If you ever need to fill a space (like a corner or entryway, for example), these are great options! Decorative baskets are great for doubling as decor and storage, ottomans and benches look cute on their own but are also perfect for extra seating, and stools can also jazz up a space, especially with a plant on top.
That’s all for now, folks! Have fun experimenting with these three simple ways to liven up the spaces around your home. I’m a huge believer in decorating with intention so that you LOVE where you live!

P.S. Another awesome way to update a space is to PAINT! We (and by “we” I mean the husband) are currently in the middle of painting various rooms in our home, so maybe that will be a post for another day 🙂
