Once the hustle of the holiday season ends and winter drags on, it's easy to find yourself in a home decor rut. Don't let the frigid temps or gloomy weather keep you from adding a little cheer and personality to your home. Here are three simple details that are easy to complete and will make your home a winter retreat you won't mind being trapped in a little while longer.

1. Install glamorous lighting

The days may be short but that shouldn't stop you from bringing a little brightness indoors. Consider changing any overhead lighting that may be dull and inadequate for a statement piece that will instantly brighten your home - and maybe even your mood! Installing a pendant or chandelier is an easy project any skill level can take on but be sure to follow all the manufacturer's warnings and instructions. If you're wiring brand new lighting for the first time, it may be best to seek out a professional first.

2. Swap boring, outdated hardware for glass door knobs

It's no secret that we find upgrading your door hardware to be an easy way to complete the design of your home. We're loving the thought of adding some glass door knobs - like our new Alexandria or Hobson knobs - to add a bit of sparkle and shine to a season that is often overtaken by gloom. If glass door knobs are not your style, simply choosing a finish that better reflects your home's decor can be the perfect upgrade you're looking for. Let our style selector tool help you find your perfect match.

3. Don't be afraid to mix a few finishes

Upgrading your lighting or door hardware doesn't have to result in a domino effect of changing all hardware to a matching finish. Embrace mixed finishes and add a little drama or interest to your decor. Here are our tried and true tips for mixing hardware finishes flawlessly. If you're feeling extra bold and unconventional, you can even mix finishes among your door hardware. Honeybear Lane proves that it's perfectly fine to create your own rules and choose designs that add a little more character than you had before.
