Decorating with plants is a great way to liven up your home! Not only do they brighten up any room, plants also reduce toxins in the air and improve overall air quality. Freshen up your space with a touch of greenery and reap the benefits.

2. Paint It Black

If you’re looking to transform your space without breaking the bank, try painting an accent wall. Dark walls are especially trendy right now, and contrary to popular belief, they actually can make a room feel warmer and more inviting. So ditch the all-white-everything interiors and take a cue from the Rolling Stones: paint it black.

3. Get Snug with a Rug

4. Wrap It Up

Let’s face it: We’re all spending more time on the couch than ever before. Make your new favorite hangout spot extra comfy by adding some soft, chunky throw blankets.

5. Shelve It

Bookshelves add character and can make your home feel more lived-in and welcoming. Display your favorite books, knickknacks and plants to personalize your space.

6. Let There Be Light

Never underestimate the power of a great-smelling candle.  Local favorite Detroit Rose’s hand-poured, non-toxic candles are perfect for adding a little bit of ambiance while also making your home smell heavenly.

7. Get Your Glow On
