10 Accessories to Beat the Winter Blahs

lacquer trays

There’s just something about this time of year that leaves me gloomy and in need of a little change to brighten my mood. A quick shift in a room’s accessories goes a long way towards making a space feel fresh and bright, and most of the time I already own everything I need. If shopping my home doesn’t work though, all the stores are coming out with their new spring lines to tempt me into bringing something new home.

I’ve put together 10 of my favorites, which one would you choose?
