Selecting spritely paint colors can help to beat the winter blues.
Winter is the time of year that you either love or hate. If you dread the cold nights and gray days, you’re not alone. This time of year is populated with people feeling sad. That’s right, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a real condition where the affected get depressed in winter. While we can’t escape this season, there are certain things we can do to beat the winter blues and keep SAD at bay.
Check out these top tips to make your home a winter haven!
- Revamp your interior space. Most of our time is spent indoors during the winter. Start by painting the walls with a fresh coat of paint, and add rugs and heavy curtains to keep the house looking and feeling cozy.
- Add warm colors. Paint the walls yellow, red, or orange – all colors in the ‘warm’ palate. If you don’t feel like painting a whole room one of these colors, choose an accent wall or trim to spruce it up.
- Add light. The amount of natural light that we see in winter severely decreases. Because of this, adding lamps that brighten the room in a warm light is recommended. Be sure to avoid harsh fluorescent bulbs that create a cold and unwelcoming light.
- Bring in life. In the winter, the trees are barren, the plants are small, and wildlife curls up for the winter. Bring in some life into your home during this time to add some vitality! Head to the local nursery and choose something green that will detox the air in your home – and some cheer!
