every time i return from a trip, i feel a hint of discontentment with our home. yet oftentimes the littlest tweaks are quite significant in changing the feel & mood of a space.
today i thought i would share a little list of simple things i love to do within our home to make it feel fresh & new again.
1. light my favorite candles - there's nothing quite like the warmth & coziness of a candle burning. i love the gather candle from our shop & burn it in our kitchen next to the sink.
2. make the bed - luke & i begin each day by making the bed together. it's a quick bit of time to connect & chat about our goals for the day while we fold the blankets & pile on the pillows. also, it's such an easy way to calm the chaos of home.
3. flowers in unexpected places - go out to the garden & harvest a bouquet or grab one from the grocer. create mini bouquets throughout your home in the most unexpected places - the bathroom, your bedroom dresser, atop the coffee table. every time you turn the corner, you'll smile!
4. set the table - gather your favorite linens, a bouquet of flowers, a candle & your favorite china. set the table & ready your family for a wholesome meal together. it's the simplest way to reconnect with your family & ground yourself to your sacred place.
how do you freshen your home & it's corners? please share in the comments!
