Brighten Your Living Space and Mood [VIDEO]

Are gloomy winter days getting you down? Now that the holidays are over, waiting for warmer weather can be difficult. Even for people who enjoy the snowy season, spring's welcome arrival can feel far away. Jan Hagerman, ReStore Manager, shares how you can brighten your living spaces—and how you just might lift your mood at the same time.

From adding calming or vibrant colors to switching up what you already have, here are some of Jan's tips to bring new life to your home:

  • Add a plant or two

  • Find a new, colorful throw blanket or pillow

  • Look for artwork at a thrift store, or rearrange artwork already on display

  • Install a new showerhead in your bathroom

  • Use crystal glasses to keep jewelry off the counter

  • Use a decorative basket for storage

  • Paint an accent wall or a piece of furniture a fresh color

  • Use stick-on wallpaper in the back of a bookcase
