It’s easy to feel like your world is grey in the winter – between the overcast skies and snowy days, the cold weather blues definitely can start to get you down. I’ve been doing my best to keep myself in good spirits lately, but I’ve definitely noticed that the low temps have been affecting my mood a little more than usual. So I decided to kick the blues to the curb this season by adding a little more color into my home décor. When you surround yourself with cheery colors, you can’t help but feel a little cheerier, too!

Like you, I’m always on a budget – so I love swinging by Meijer to check out their colorful selection of home goods and décor. It’s tough when you want to style an affordable home, but Meijer makes it easy to find beautiful pillows, trays, lamps, candles and more without breaking the bank. Last time I went to Meijer, I picked up a few goodies that made my living room even more bright and beautiful. Here are a few of my favorite tips and the products I used to make my home a little more lively during these gloomy winter months.

Get Bold with Colorful Pillows

Don’t judge me too much, but I spend quite a bit of time on my couch in the winter (how can you not when you have Netflix and wine?!). To make my couch more comfortable and chic, I picked up these pretty chevron pillows to add a much needed pop of color. I love buying neutral, classic pieces when it comes to furniture, so the bright pillows do a great job of pulling the room together and making the space a little more cheery. Plus, who doesn’t love a classic chevron pattern? I’ll definitely be keeping these pillows on deck throughout the season to add a little more fun to my favorite room.

Say Yes to Colorful Storage

I am a big proponent of multi-tasking décor, so when I spotted this cute storage basket from Meijer, I knew it had to come home with me! I always have blankets lying around during the cold winter months, so this colorful basket is the perfect addition to my living room to keep my blankets organized. I also picked up the faux fur throw, because you can never have too many blankets this time of year! I live in Chicago and spend most of winter huddled up in my living room with a big cup of tea, so the cozier the blankets I can find, the better!

Mix in Some Gold Pieces with your Color

Obviously you don’t want your living room to turn into a circus, so it’s important to find balance with neutral and accent colors. I love decorating with gold accents, and I try to incorporate mixed metals whenever possible. This lamp from Meijer, along with my favorite spherical spike accent, adds some much needed balance to vignettes that are rich with bright colors.

Find Colorful Upgrades to Your Favorite Pieces

From trays and bowls to your morning coffee mug, treat yourself to a few colorful upgrades to combat the grey weather outside. I replaced my drab, white tray with this pretty chevron patterned one. It matches my new pillows and adds a pop of color to my black coffee table. Not too shabby for a quick update, right?

I also bought these adorable polka dot bowls for my regular (almost nightly) bowls of popcorn – they’re the perfect size for indulging in a Netflix episode or two, and I love that they add even more color to my coffee table.

I hope you’re managing to escape the winter gloom but, if you’re struggling like I was, make sure to add colorful pieces to brighten up your home! It’s amazing what a few affordable pieces can do to make your living room feel like an oasis from the cold, and I’d definitely recommend swinging by Meijer to check out all the home décor they have for winter.
