I wanted the space to look more uniform and less like a scattered mess. Tackling an area…

    The winter months are always hard for me.The temperature continues to drop, and each day it is getting darker earlier. My body intuitively starts to slip into hibernation mode. In order for me to mentally prepare, I feel the need to make a few adjustments to my environment so I feel physically prepared as well. In anticipation of spending more time inside, I started making my home as cozy as possible for all my future nights in.
