Our top 10!


We’re all moving toward a similar goal - we want our homes to be comfortable and refreshing. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve realized quickly that your kids, pets, and busy schedule makes it feel impossible to achieve that.


You might be limited financially.

You may not have the bandwidth to make huge changes.

You might not know where to begin.



  1. Declutter regularly: Keep surfaces clear of unnecessary items to create a sense of space and cleanliness - PRO TIP: get decorative baskets for shoes, toys, etc.

  1. Use timeless furniture: Invest in pieces that will last over the years and work with any style changes in your home!


  1. Embrace neutral colors: Opt for neutral tones for larger decor pieces and walls to create a timeless and cohesive look.


  2. Incorporate greenery: Use plants or flowers to add a pop of color and freshness to any room - we love real touch greenery because it looks real and won’t die! 




  1. Invest in good lighting: Ensure each room has adequate lighting sources, including overhead lights, lamps, and natural light.



  1. Add decorative accents: Incorporate throw pillows, rugs, and artwork to inject personality and style into your space.



  1. Keep it functional: Prioritize function when arranging furniture and decor to make your home both practical and visually pleasing

    (example: if your kids keep piling their junk on the dining room table, place baskets right inside the door under a console table or bench for their stuff)


  2. Rotate seasonal decor: Swap out decorative accents and textiles to reflect the changing seasons and keep your home feeling fresh

    (if you have neutral vases and neutral pillows, this is easy!! just change out floral, add some accent pillows, and add a few seasonal pieces here and there)



  1. Hang mirrors strategically: Use mirrors to bounce light around and create the illusion of more space in smaller rooms (hang mirrors across from windows)



  1. Regular maintenance: Stay on top of cleaning and maintenance tasks to prevent clutter

    (example: I give myself one task every day PLUS I always wipe my counters down before I go to sleep. Find those simple tasks that help you feel WORLDS better when you wake up the next day and make them a nightly habit). 



A lot of these tips and tricks are simple - like adding a basket here and there, or finding your “staple cleaning tasks” to help you wake up to a clean-ish space! That being said, some of the transitions to a neutral, less complicated space take time and planning.


If you don’t want to make that transition alone, we’d love to help! Venture to our "Contact Us" section and share a little bit of information with us!! We will be in touch!
