5 Ways To Refresh Your Space For 2018:
 

1. Violet Glam

 
 

The Pantone Color of 2018 is Ultra Violet! Dramatic and complex, Ultra Violet symbolizes "unconventionality and artistic brilliance" according to Pantone.com. So what does this mean for  your home or office? It's time to GLAM IT UP! Whether you add a splash of violet with decorative pillows, a bold comforter or even paint a wall in your room, Pantone's 2018 color of the year will definitely add that glam factor to your space!

It's time to say goodbye to old stale air and hello to fresh oxygen! Houseplants not only serve as functional decorations that brighten spaces, they also purify the air. Greenery in a home creates a more relaxing and peaceful ambience. A recent study reported that patients with indoor plants in their rooms reported lower stress levels than patients without. Using indoor plants will definitely give your space a healthy dose of zen!

3. Rearrange Furniture

Rearranging furniture is one of our favorite ways to create a new and fresh feeling in any space! Play with repositioning your bed, desk or chairs and you'll instantly have yourself a brand new room. Not only does rearranging furniture give you a new perspective and outlook on your home, it's a great brain teaser to get your creative juices flowing.

4. Clean Out The Junk

 
 

Stop what you're doing and open the first drawer you find in your home! What's inside? Is it a cluttered mess? Don't fret! Decluttering drawers in your home is a satisfying way to clear your mind. Run to your favorite big box store, like Target or Walmart, and stock up on bins, drawers and even label stickers. As you clean your drawers, throw away anything you haven't used in the past year and organize the rest into bins and containers. Ahhh, we feel decluttered just thinking about it!

5. Vegan Vibes

Let the vegan vibes roll! It's 2018 and let's face it, using animal derived products is seriously outdated. Start veganzing your home one room at a time! First, find items in your home made with down feathers, wool and leather. Then, little-by-little, begin to swap out those pieces for eco-friendly and cruelty-free alternatives. Vegan materials and textiles provide for a healthy and allergen-free space. Check out our Shopping Guide to find trendy vegan furnishings & decorations.
