5 Easy Ways To Update Your Home Decor

This post is sponsored by All opinions are my own.


One thing I don't do around this time of year is decorate my home for the holidays. Since I spend the season mostly travelling and being away from home, it doesn't seem worth it to put up a tree just for a few days. 

That being said, the holidays have still put me in the mood to spruce up my home a little bit. With the new year fast approaching, I'm thinking about little improvements I can make in my space get 2018 off to a good start. In that spirit, here are 5 easy ways to update your home decor for the new year. These ideas are particularly great if you have a small budget or are renting your current home.

Add Some Greenery

Getting new plants is a simple and affordable way to add some life to your home. Whether you have room for a small succulent or an big tropical tree, a simple plant purchase can add a lot to the look and feel of your space. Having plants in your home can also improve air quality and boost your mood, making them a great addition for your health and happiness.

Update Your Linens

Treating yourself to some new bed linens is a great way to overhaul the look and feel of your whole bedroom. Having a few new sets of linens with pretty patterns or different colours can allow you to change up the decor of your bedroom super easily on a regular basis. 

Change A Light Fixture

If you're keen to invest a little more time and effort into updating your home you can change out a generic light fixture for something more unique and special. I personally have always dreamed of having a chandelier light in my home. I love how they can add so much visual interest to a room while also keeping the space bright and welcoming.

Hang New Artwork

Hanging new artwork is one of my favourite ways to decorate my space because it's so simple. I love collecting small pieces by local artists and finding the perfect place for them on my walls. Whether you love illustrations, inspirational mantras, posters, or photos of family and friends, find something new to hang on your walls and your space will feel completely refreshed. 

Have Fun With Textiles

If, like me, you don't have the time, budget, or freedom to repaint, focus on textiles instead. Shop for a few new decorative pillows or throws for your living room and you'll see a difference right away. If you're a little more ambitious, change up your window dressings for a whole new look.

If you're looking for some simple ways to refresh your home this season, I hope this list has given you some inspiration. Do you have other ideas for how to easily update your home decor? Leave your tips in the comments!
