5 Inexpensive Ideas to Refresh Your Home & Life

I do not think I am alone when I say we all need a little refresh right now. I am low on event and floral design projects due to COVID-19, which means money is not flowing in, and I am home all the time. I have spent most of my time off in the garden. I have created five new gardens beds in my backyard. I used all seeds and split plants from my front yard and transplanted then to the back. My husband is a banker and loves that I have become thrifty…I will not tell him it is temporary. Today I am focusing on my interior for the first time in months. I needed a little refresh, and I thought I would share my inexpensive ideas. I hope you enjoy them!

Flowers always make my home look clean and cared for. I will go out to the garden after I clean my house and bring in some flowers!

Fresh paint is an incredible way to bring new life to your space. It will cost you $40+ a gallon, but it gives you a big bang for your buck!

I love container gardening; you can do this anywhere if you have a window you can have a garden. I love getting my hands dirty and watching seeds, seedlings, or plants thrive. You can spend just a few dollars to get huge rewards.

Flea Markets are great places to go right now, grab your mask and hand sanitizer, and get out hunting for that statement piece you have been longing to find.

This suggestion is my husband’s favorite because it costs nothing. Rearrange your rooms, try something new, bring a piece of furniture from one space into another. I am moving a chair from my guestroom down to my family room, and moving a sofa from one area to another…moving things motivates me to clean and declutter, and it refreshes the space.

Which of these ideas inspires you to create beauty? What could you do to refresh your home?

I would love to hear from you, please let me know by commenting or liking my post.

I feel so lucky to have a wonderful career. My job is all about enjoying the beauty that surrounds us or creating beautiful spaces or events for my clients.

When we are free to travel again I look forward to bringing my clients to Europe. Travel opens your mind, lifts your spirits, and feeds your soul.

Most of my weddings have been postponed or canceled altogether for 2020, but I am still dreaming about bouquets and tablescapes.

We will move our classes online so we can still learn and love flowers, gardening & interior ideas.

Anything is possible when you believe in yourself and you enjoy your work.

I am using this downtime to take classes, watch YouTube videos on gardening, and read as many articles, books, and blogs about design as I can.

Garden Renovation

I am taking this COVID-19 down time as an opportunity to rehab my backyard. My front garden is beautiful…now it is time to focus on the back! I can not wait to get started. The vision board above has some of my ideas. I already have a wonderful pergola. I am going to add raised beds, stone paths, a gate to the woods, shade garden, cutting garden, fire pit, and a fence made of old pallets!

Do you have any ideas for me? what do you think is a must in a garden? I have been binge watching Garden Rescue, Roots & Refuge Farm and P. Allen Smith on YouTube. I am ready to give this the old college try.

Wish me luck and please help me with any advice, tips, questions. Please use the comment section to speak to me!

Thank you for stopping, Celia
