Love Your Space Challenge #4

Add fresh air!

Option 1:  Bring fresh air into your living space by adding a potted plant.  If you have allergies, consider using a Parsley, Thyme, Swedish Ivy, or Peperomia plant and stay away from Fig plants.

Option 2:  If you prefer a little more color, add a few flower stems to a pretty vase.

Option 3:  Clip some budding branches or evergreen sprigs from your yard to bring the outside in.

My Outcome:  I found a cute planter with birds sitting on a branch.

SONY DSCI hope I see you tomorrow!  Remember to post pics or leave me a comment and tell me about your projects.  I love talking decor. 😉

  1. This is the first type of challenge I have seen like this and I like it. So different and a great way to start actually sprucing up the place where you live.

    1. What a sweet compliment Kita! I’m trying to make them simple and easy enough to actually get done but still want them to have an impact on the space.

  2. LOVE! With how freezing it is outside today these pictures just make me feel all warm and sunny like Springtime! I love them all so much and I’d gladly take a house styled any way like this 🙂 I especially love option 1 and 2! What a warm post 🙂
