Tips for Welcoming Spring into Your Decor

Open up the Window Treatments

We often shut our windows and treatments to preserve the warmth within during Winter, but it’s time to add some needed light- open those blinds/drapes/windows and let some beautiful light into your home. Wash the windows on the interior, and if you have a spouse/roommate/significant other, have them clean the outside window simultaneously.  Then you’ll be sure not to miss something stuck on the window or have streaks.  (If you can afford it, have a service do the outside cleaning for you.)

Add Some Brighter -Colored Accents:

  
Whether it's place mats, table runners, prints of flowers or your favorite activities, or decorative pillows add some pops of color throughout your home.  Put away the darker, warmer throws on the couch.  Replace your crème colored candles with bright white one.  Mix in some floral patterns in the mix for even more pizazz.

  
 
 

 
 

Add Color to Your Bedding:

 
Sheets are easy and can be less expensive to change out than the comforter, so think about an accent color that will complement the current colors within your bedroom.  Violet and blues are popular new colors, as are pastels.
 
 

 

 

 

 

Ready Your Outdoor Spaces

If you are lucky enough to have a deck, patio or other outdoor space, it is a great idea to prepare the space for future entertaining now. Start with a power washer on your flooring, whether it’s a deck or a concrete floor.  Determine whether  further work is needed (like a new stain or coat of protectant) on the floor before you do anything else.  Then pull out the outdoor furniture, wash it off as needed, and clean off the cushions.  Take a trip to your local nursery to purchase some new annuals to brighten the space- it will lift your spirits to see it regularly.
