Add some green. A few new houseplants, moss-covered wreaths, and boxwood topiaries - preserved or faux - will fill the void left after the Christmas tree and garlands have been packed away.

Light some candles. The soft glow of candlelight warms up any room.
If you’re leery about using real candles, the flameless, battery-operated versions work wonderfully. They’re widely available, and many even come with timers and remotes.
|Candles and fresh flowers perk up a coffee table.|
Change your accent pillows, or just buy covers to freshen your current pillows. Try a vibrant new color or pattern.
Fill a large basket with throw blankets, and keep it near your couch. They’ll be handy for movie nights or just relaxing by the fire.

Treat yourself - and your home - to fresh flowers. Fill a vase (or two) and watch your space bloom.
Clean up the clutter. Recycle magazines and junk mail. Donate any clothes you haven’t worn in a while, Tidy up junk drawers, and pitch any expired foods.
Have a great week!
