My first step in ridding myself of the winter blues is to brighten up the atmosphere in my home. I’ve decided to do this by changing some of my wall decor. It won’t take much, just a picture or two that remind me of the warmer months with their brighter colors or summer scenes.
I’ve narrowed it down to 7 of my favorite wall art prints from minted.com.
I feel that these are very joyful prints with a summertime essence, which is exactly what I want to see on my walls.
If you’ve ever read anything on color psychology you already know that colors affect your mood and can greatly improve your atmosphere (or depress it if you opt for colors you find grim).
It’s really a matter of personal choice and I opt for bright colors and serene summer scenes to enhance my surroundings.
When I look at those beautiful colors my insides smile and when I look at a beautiful beach scene I imagine myself there.
The reason I like the wall art gallery at minted is because I can choose different color themes for many of the prints and also which frame I want along with my print.
The image below isn’t one I would choose but if it came in pink that’s a different story…
… it does come in pink and the rest of the colors below. Pretty neat, huh?
Since I can’t control the snowflakes that are falling outside my window this very minute I will change what I can to banish this torturous winter feeling (dramatic, I know).
It’s been a long winter, what can I say.
So what do you think, how do you like my choices and what do you do to rid your winter blues?
My second step to rid my blues is to lose my 5 extra pounds of cheesecake binging but that’s not going to be as fun or as easy.
