Holiday season is around the corner and this time of year, the decor outside is just as important as the inside. Here are 5 simple ways to spruce up the outside of your home.
Plants are great inside and out and for those who want to become one with nature, getting your green thumb on is not such a bad idea. It’s not too late to start planting and looking for that harvest immediately, but you can also visit a local plant nursery to stock up on great shrubbery that’ll stand up to the elements. The wintergreen boxwood plant, blue spruce tree, and Winterberries are three great plants that you can try out.
Imagine laying off in a swaying hammock in the cool, crisp air under a shady tree with your tablet reading articles on Everything Girl’s Love! Well if you have the space, bridge the gap and set up a little hammock to relax in! Because there are so many variations of these, you no longer need multiple trees or trees at all. All you need is a space to hold your relaxation station and besides it just looks cool!
While it sounds like we’re suggesting you redesign your home, we’re not. Just a little sprinkling of rope lights will get you in the mood for the holiday and start you on your decorating way. There are so many variations of these and whether in rope or icicle form, you can brilliantly light your exterior.
For the really ambitious and those that have been thinking about this for a while, paint changes everything. You can transform your home from drab to fab with the stroke of a brush and add instant curb appeal to your abode. If the whole house is outside of your budget, just paint the front door for an instant pop.
From the curb to the door, carve out a path to add immediate charm. Pick a paver that is to your liking to up the ante adding a little polish to an otherwise understated house.
Transforming your home doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. Simple changes can make huge impacts and totally put you in the holiday spirit.
