Happy Home: Pic with a Tip


One of the easiest and least expensive ways to make a space more visually interesting is to put some books in it. Beautiful, colorful coffee table books can be ordered on sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble for a significantly lowered price, and once you have a little collection going, it's easy to arrange them prettily on a bookshelf or stack them on a coffee table for an instant shot of color and an easy conversation starter when you have guests over.

So Tip #1: Invest in coffee table books. Arrange at will. And Tip #2: Bright flowers can do wonders for a space and they don't have to be expensive. Grab a few bundles of daisies from your corner bodega or Whole Foods, snip off the stems so that they're all the same height, and arrange in a few short vases around the room. xo
