We spent a lot of time at home in 2020 – certainly a lot more time than we anticipated. But, it created the opportunity to inspire us to make our homes a beautiful refuge. Between winter and the pandemic, the early months of 2021 are calling for more time spent inside. Here are a few easy and approachable ways to refresh your home from our Pepper Place design experts.
If a large handmade rug is out of your budget-layer! We love a sisal or seagrass foundation with a smaller vintage rug on top! It is an easy way to add a unique piece of floor art without breaking your budget!
Here’s our inspirationwhen it comes to budget-layering:
We love to swap out small accessories like pillows, candles, and decorative items with each changing season. Implementing these small changes can make all the difference in setting a fresh tone in your space. Our decorative items can be found in our shop or on our website.
Another way you can transform a space is with an original painting! If you’ve ever found a piece of art you love, you know the light and life that it can bring to a space. A painting is often the jumping off point for designing an entire room, but we also believe that if you fall in love with a piece, you will find a space for it. We always say that art doesn’t have to be too matchy-matchy with your decor, so don’t overthink it! We love this painting by one of our newest artists, Wendy Westlake. You can view her collection here.
One easy way to refresh your home: Switch up your art! Yellowhammer’s print selection and Chirpwood 2 stick frames makes it super easy to do a quick switch of some art here and there to add something fresh to your space.
Some prints we’re loving:

We all naturally look forward to a new year — it is a chance for a clear reset within the chaos of life. Looking back over the year I found myself, probably like many of you, trying to pivot life and in my case, my business while also taking care of our family. Aromatherapy is my go-to when there is a need for grounding my thoughts, centering my being, awakening my creativity, or relaxing when life is overwhelming. Aromatherapy is an incredible tool for all of us! You can find a variety of aromatherapy products at FarmStand Birmingham — from Rollerball Perfumes, Bath-bombs, Bath and Shower Oils, and Soy Wax Candles.
Want to learn more about aromatherapy? Farmstand will be offering an online introduction to aromatherapy and it’s benefits to support wellness in February.
