Love Your Space Challenge: Jan 5th

I hope you had a lovely weekend! The last couple of challenges required a little more effort than the rest but they make a huge impact.

I have a little secret to tell you.  While I am participating in this 31 day challenge, we are “homeless” right now.  My family and I are hopping on a plane for a very long flight to Japan (in a couple of weeks) where we will start the process of finding a place to live. So most of these challenges had to do with a lot of pre-planning on my part.

Today’ challenge is something I do often and is super easy.

If you have a closet full of pillows and throws like I do (did) this will be easy. 😉 If not, consider trading textiles from another room to freshen up your space.  Of course if you are in the mood for shopping; Pier1, Cost World Market, TJMaxx, and Target or some of my favorite places to find great deals.
