I just moved into a new house and let me tell you: Putting a home together—particularly when you have kids—is not easy. And let's not forget that we're in the midst of pandemic, so I've chosen not to do any in-person shopping.

That means I'm turning to social media for the inspiration I'd normally find in the aisles of a store. And like so many mamas out there, I'm quickly realizing how quickly the expenses add up, so I'm doing whatever I can to avoid purchasing new items.

Luckily, Pinterest isn't the only social media platform that's delivering home decoration inspo and hacks right now: TikTok is also a treasure trove of home decoration ideas. There are so many fun DIY ideas out there, so if you're looking to spruce up your home decor, you don't have to look far.


Here are home decor ideas from TikTok:

If you have extra wall space and are looking for quick and easy styling with major impact, add open shelves. Decorate them with plants, book and small vases.

Sunday Citizen

I live in the Northeast and when I woke up this morning, my house was freezing. It had been in the mid 40's overnight and we haven't turned the heat on yet. Suddenly, my normal duvet felt too thin. The socks on my bare feet too non-existent. Winter is coming, and I'd been drinking rosés still pretending it was summer.

I couldn't put it off any longer. It was time to do my annual tradition of winterizing my home—and I don't mean making sure my pipes and walls have enough insulation (though obviously that's important too). I mean the act of evaluating every room and wondering if it has enough hygge to it.

If you've never heard of hygge, it's a Danish word that means a quality of coziness or contentment. And what better time to make sure you have moments of hygge all throughout your house than right now? As far as I'm concerned it's the only way to get through these dark winter months (even more so during a pandemic.)

So I went room by room (yes, even my 4-year-old's room) and swapped in, layered or added in these 13 products to get us ready for winter:

WSEL Bags: Dad-designed diaper bags that think of everything

Kate Hudson’s kids prove that siblings with a big age gap can still have a close bond

These pics of a big brother and baby sister are too sweet.

Ryder Robinson

To be born close in age to your siblings is a special experience. You have a built-in playmate and BFF for life, but being born after an age gap certainly has its benefits, too.

Parents who are expecting again when their older children are already into double digits may wonder what the sibling bond will look like when the kids have more than a decade between them. Well, look no further, because Kate Hudson's oldest son, 14-year-old Ryder Robinson took to Instagram to show the world that while he and baby Rani Rose may not be playmates they have an equally powerful sibling bond.
