A wonderful way to stave off the winter blues is to introduce vibrant color into your surroundings. My favorite way of adding life and loveliness to my home interiors during the winter is to cook and prepare meals with color and bring bouquets of fresh flowers into my home. Placing them around in vases or in fun whimsy containers can turn the blasé feeling of a grey day into an indoor garden party.

Another exhilarating way to add color to your mix is to change up accessories and furniture pieces around your home.

Wintertime is the perfect time to tackle an interior decorating project. What better way to lift your spirits than to surround yourself with fresh coats of colorful paint, a few new pieces of lively artwork and a new sofa to anchor your look.

If organizing is a constructive way to put pep in your step, consider introducing a piece of functional accent furniture that will help you tackle the goal. Once you have made your selection, you can begin to accessorize with vibrant artwork or accents as a fun way to present pops throughout your space.

Since it seems like we spend so much of our time indoors during the winter, especially during the months of January and February, surrounding ourselves with what we enjoy about the great outdoors can be a wonderful way to lift the spirits during the drab grey days of winter.

So if you are planning on tackling an interior design project, consider using fabric patterns that convey the look and feel of being outside.

I enjoy cooking with color, and even though some fruits and vegetables might be out of season this time of year, creating colorful green salads with fresh fruit and herbs can be as close as shopping at your favorite grocery or organic market.

Dressing up your table with colorful linens and dinnerware, while serving a salad that has lots of healthy choices in the combination, such as, nuts and veggies, can feed your mood with positive elements, as well as your tummy.  Feeling earthy never felt so good!

Finding ways to feel more optimistic during the winter can be more than just surrounding yourself with what you enjoy. It also starts on the inside by making healthy choices that can help enhance your outlook.

Making colorful selections when it comes to what you are putting on the table can pave the way to a healthier lifestyle which is so needed during the sunless days of winter, but it never hurts to be able to sit down and enjoy a healthy meal on a beautiful table that showcases your favorite dishes with a gorgeous centerpiece full of vibrant color either. The combination of health and wellness, along with feeling free to play with color, can become the perfect survival guide to fighting off the winter woes.
