Fresh & Fabulous Style Updates for Your Home

I don't know about you, but I'm getting spring fever and the itch to spruce some things up around my apartment! While searching online for inspiring DIY project ideas, I came across the Dutch website Vtwonen, which had a fantastic section dedicated to quick styling fixes to update the home. I've rounded up several of my favorites to share with you today, all of which are relatively easy and inexpensive (two of my favorite words!). Do you have any upcoming plans to re-vamp your home decor? I'd love to hear all about it! Enjoy your weekend! xoxo - Julie

{Large flowers cut from wallpaper give this armoire new life!}

{I'll never tire of seeing vintage plates grouped together and hung as art!}

{A simple way to display your collections, art supplies, etc.}

{A floating shelf to display fresh flowers. I'd love to try this on my balcony!}

{Create your own wallpaper with a variety of unique and colorful maps}

{Create your own little display of curiosities and found objects by using a console table, shadow boxes, shelves, etc. to showcase your favorite things}

{A brightly painted art ledge accented with colorful artwork and hanging dried flowers - this would definitely give any space a pick-me-up}

{Hang a painted branch from two ropes in your kitchen and use to display / store utensils, pots, pans, etc.}

{Fresh flowers placed in a birdcage - love it!}

{Notice the small branch-like hooks mounted directly onto the mirror to hang jewelry!}

{Another DIY wallpaper idea - just group together random wallpaper samples or pretty sheets of paper, adhere to the wall and voila! An original wallpaper design!}

{Clip your favorite photos to a wire or string; you can even add in colorful art prints, fabric swatches, or anything else that makes you smile}
