3 Design Tips to Beat the Winter Blues

Sometimes, Minnesota winters seem so looooooong! As we spend more time indoors, sometimes we can go a little stir-crazy. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to beat the winter blues and brighten your mood just by giving your space a bit of attention.

The team at Lucy Interior Design knows how to pack a punch of color to a room. They share their three favorite decorating tips to beat the winter blues:

1) Utilize your sunroom or any room with the most natural light during cold winter months. Add little splashes of bright colors or use fresh flowers to ditch those winter blues.

2) Changing things in your home doesn’t mean you need to even leave the house! Rearrange art on your walls in a new, unexpected way. Or perhaps, channel your inner artist and make some art of your own to hang!

3) A quick fix for cold and uninviting temperatures outside? Add wicker or some ethnic flair which can instantly transport you to a warmer domain.
