5 Steps to Cure Indoor Apathy

November 18, 2015

Despite the cave-like comforts of drifting off into a deep pleasant sleep, the shadows of winter time zones eventually take their toll resulting in indoor apathy. Here are 5 easy steps to brighten up any nook or corner of your home and add creative flair.

Step One
Choose a corner, shelf space, reading nook that you wish to “enlighten.”


Step Two
Gather a few indoor potted plants, preferably ones that require very little maintenance. Areca Palms, Aloe, Diffenbochia, Spider Plants etc. are all very low care plants which make for great winter companions.

Step Three
Next, pick up a set of decorative firefly lights, I found these from Urban Outfitters but really any décor retailer should carry something similar.


Step Four
Finally, collect a few glass items to display your lighting. Mason jars, fish bowls, cake covers will all work great for this set up and typically cost ones of dollars at your local thrift store.

Step Five
Done! A beautiful nook of light to cheer up any wintery night (or day).
