It's Time for a Change

-Happy February! 
Now that 2011 has been here for a month, 
for February the motto should be
It's time for a Change! View this as a good thing :) 
Take a good look around your home and 
figure out what needs to change.
I've done it, now YOU should do the same. Are you asking: I like what I have, why would I want to change it? Also, where is all this money going to come from to make these changes? Let me tell you that, to answer the first question: 
What to change? It doesn't take much to make an impact on a room. 
You do NOT have to change every single thing in your room or spend a ton of money to make an impact on your home decor. It can be as simple as: 
  • Giving your room a new coat of paint.
  • Changing up a centerpiece on a coffee table.
  • The kitchen table with a new item to give you an updated style. 
  • Maybe your mantle needs a new focus. 
So remember one nice new something for your home can make your room feel brand new and give you a much needed boost as well.
This is the Viridian Oval Container one of Willow House's brand new products.
imagine this as a centerpiece on your coffee table. To change it up, why put it in your kitchen
 filled with green apples adding a little bit of color to your winter while making a
nice healthy snack center for the family.
Why do you want to change it? Well, if you change everything all at once, it can be costly and who has the money to do that as well as the time and energy?! 

If you find a new style that you like, make a list and prioritize what is most important. Then buy a little at a time as it makes it affordable to make changes. If you don't take an honest look at least once a year, then suddenly you may find your home a little faded and jaded. Remember just because Aunt Milly gave you that vase, it doesn't mean you need to keep it for 20 years. If you feel guilty about getting rid of it, then give it away to someone that admires it. They will love it and so will you!

-Before you get something new, make sure that you buy something where you can find more than one way of using it. 
-Don't spend the money on something that you will tuck away in your closet for 8 or 9 months out of the year.
-Love products that are not only beautiful but useful. 
-Look at qualityIf you do not by something that is well made, it will fall apart before you are ready to change it up and when that happens you will be sad. Believe me, I have learned this the hard way. So it is worth it, to spend a little more.

Have an great day!
