    Taking down holiday decorations is always sad because the house looks so bare. I am a thrift store shopper so got some great ideas from your post for things to look for to brighten my house here in SD, where our Winters are as long as yours in MN.

      Thrifting is a great way to give your home a boost the cheap way! I always send some back to them, too:)

  2. Love this Post! ❤️
    Makes me feel much better about my very stagnant living room. Right now, I think new curtains would have the biggest impact. The ones I have now make the whole room such an icky color when light shines through them. So depressing – ugh! New panels can be inexpensive and will go far in lifting my mood!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, that sounds like the perfect refresh for your living room! Light streaming through is wonderful, especially in the winter!

  3. I tried to pin it but it doesn’t seem to work. I love all your ideas and did a few, pillows, throws and rugs. These are great ways to change even more than I have, thanks.

      Thanks for trying, Marlene; think I’ll be making some changes with the Pinterest buttons in 2022.

  4. All great ideas Lora and boy do I need to clean my artificial plants! Would love some new window treatments too! Stay warm!

      Thanks, Cindy! Currently in a winter storm warning; fire and a movie tonight!

  5. This is an excellent post. I’ve been staring at my decor and mentally making changes; now I’m ready to try some of your ideas. I just love looking at your collections and how you arrange them. Thanks for sharing your ideas 🙂

    1. All great ideas. We’re due for a new rug in our great room. Looking around for spring

        I need a new one for our dining room, too!

      I appreciate that, J! Good luck with the refreshing!
