Winter Refresh with Pretty Home Decor Finds

February 07, 2022

Pretty spring decor and art finds to brighten your home!

This is such a calming time of the year for me...the busyness of the holidays has passed, the house has been cleaned up and I make small changes to "lighten" up our home. 

I love the process of refreshing our spaces every new year! 

I've had the pleasure of working with Big Lots over the past few months and sharing some of their beautiful decor and storage items. 

They've been one of my go-to home decor sources for a couple decades now -- I always find pretty pieces there that I don't see anywhere else. 

loved so many of their new spring decor items when I walked through the store last month.

Do you decorate for winter? I don't -- after the holidays I'm done with evergreens and anything snow related (even though it's just starting around here!)  

Instead I prefer fresh touches that feel light and brighten up our wintery days. 

These finds do just that! I think you'll love these pretty decor items as much as I do. :) 

I found this white pitcher (only $10!) and had to have it. It's hard to pass up one with such pretty lines:

A simple white pitcher with a great silhouette makes a perfect vase! 

I added a life-like artificial fern, this beaded garland and a sandlewood and cotton scented candle to create a little vignette on our table.

Centerpieces are always hard for me, but a tray like this one as a base makes it easy:

The wood garland is six feet long! I love the different shapes:

The pretty green tones in this framed botanical print caught my eye:

It was only $12 and is a substantial piece! It goes perfectly on the new floating shelves I built last year.

Big Lots has a lot of cute monogram decor right now -- I added the wood beaded frame in our guest room:

They had a couple other options that were pretty too -- I almost got this carved version.  

One of my favorite finds was this "C" side table with a marble top:

They are made to slide over the arm of your couch or chair and provide a sturdy tabletop. 

Make sure to measure the height of your arm to see if it will fit!

We've used it both ways -- tucked in and also just to the side of the sofa: 
brass marble skinny table

I love how skinny it is, but it's still the perfect size to place a cup, plate or laptop on:

Big Lots has a TON of these "C" tables available here.

I found a couple of decor pieces for our bedroom as well. I have a nightly routine where I sit with our foot massager in this chair (#granny):

I needed a tray to put all of my lotions and stuff, and this was the exact size I was looking for.

I've been moving some things around in the house, and was on the lookout for something to go above our bed when I found this large floral artwork in the store:

I couldn't have been more perfect! 

I just LOVE it. It has all of the colors in our bedroom:

So pretty!

They have SO many beautiful finds in the store right now that will transition beautifully through the spring and summer. 

The colors, textures and designs aren't overly spring "themed" and will work in our decor all year round easily! :) 

Do you incorporate some winter decor in your home or go straight to the lighter accents like me?

  1. Wow Sarah. You really *did* find some nice things at Big Lots. Love the tray, and that painting in the master couldn't be more perfect. Total score.

  2. Yes, I also have a clean white lined pitcher that I use in January with cranberry stems, it is gorgeous and such a "refresh" from Christmas busy-ness on my mantle!

  3. Hello- I want to keep receiving your emails, only at a different email address. Couldn't find an update that allowed me to change just the email.....? What do I need to do to fix this?
    Please let me know. Thank you~ Tracy

    1. Hello Tracy! I can probably fix that for you! Email me at Or you can unsubscribe and then resubscribe. :)

  4. Hi Sarah! Hope you can help me. I ordered the wall light sconce (like the one you showed from Lowes), and it came today. Haven't talked to my handy man yet, but the light sconce does not have an on/off switch. How in the world do you turn it on and off. (It is the gold tone with three lights). Thanks so much for your blog. I have been following you for years!

    1. Hello! Is it the one in our basement with the glass globes? If so that can only be hardwired.


If you have a specific question I will do my best to answer you back here!

You can find our paint colors and links to items at the "Our Home" tab at the top of my site.

THANKS so much for reading!
