Spruce up your space with these home decor finds
People tend to gravitate towards familiarity, which is why we establish routines and enjoy the feeling of home. But strong as that innate nature is, too much familiarity can still prove to be a bad thing. Case in point: the cabin fever we all feel. As we close in on our ninth month indoors, we’re all going a little stir crazy. If we can’t step outside for a change of scenery, why not change the scenery indoors?
The interior design side of Instagram has been booming thanks to our constant need to turn over a new leaf (which in real life, means redecorating the home or replacing a 10-year-old piece of furniture). Here, we round up some of the best finds—all available online—that you can shop for a quick home makeover.
For the Bedroom
Is there any place quite as important? During a time when the line between work and life is so easily blurred, the bedroom is—or should be—sacred. Spruce up the space with some candles, some framed prints, or some new lighting fixtures.
For the Workspace
With the work-from-home culture in full swing, we’re eager for anything that will make the day in and day out a little easier. Lighten up the mood in your workspace with a new set of bookends, colorful office essentials or a metal grid to keep your pre-quarantine memories in full view.
For the Kitchen
If the kitchen is where you get that sense of zen, let it be the first room you upgrade. Appliances like stoves and refrigerators are risky to shop for online, so focus on the little things. Opt for long-lasting, stylish placemats. A quirky pitcher. An eye-catching glassware set. A dish rack that could pass as a piece of modern art. The possibilities are endless!
For the Living Room
Gone are the days when living rooms were for impressing visitors. With all the time we’re spending at home, it’s all about making our spaces more comfortable, more liveable. Some suggested picks for the common area: a set of vases for a splash of color and a woven side table to mix form and function.
