As much as I love a stunning and complicated floral arrangement, that isn’t really something I gravitate to. That’s fine for a hotel lobby or an elegant wedding, but at home I prefer things a little simpler. And lucky for me, that also equals cheaper! 😉

Hi friends and welcome to the second month of our new Simply Home Series! We’re excited to bring you different ideas and tips each month, and this month we’re talking decor.

So since you all were interested in my winter living room, I thought I’d talk winter decor ideas and what I do to banish the winter blues (decor-wise that is!)
