Switch Up Your Coffee Table
Replace your ten-ton coffee table with two ceramic Chinese garden seats. Or a big ottoman with room for everything and your feet, too.
Change the Bedding
Change the bedding, both the weight and the colors. Brighter colors lighten the mood. I change the rugs, too. Flatter weaves and bright colors instantly make a home feel like a summer house.
In my book you can't beat TJ Maxx/Home Goods for nice quality at a really low price.
Store Your Firewood Artfully
Out of season, stack your leftover wood — artfully — in your fireplace.
Create a Decorative Outdoor Space
Hang a mirror in your outdoor room, add pillows and other accessories.
