I know it’s still snowing outside and winter is still here, but it won’t last forever and I’m more than ready to welcome the spring that will officially come our way on March 20th. Soon, days will get longer and sunnier, daffodils will turn the parks yellow, and I will start refreshing my home.
So start the countdown and spruce up your home for spring with these awesome tips!
Lighten things up with breezy fabrics. Changing heavy fabrics and dark tones with breezy textures, soft color palettes, and fun, floral prints will definitely freshen the entire space. Update your decorative pillows, curtains, tablecloth, area rugs or even your bedding to set a light, springy mood.
Bring some plants inside. Nothing evokes the spirit of spring better than fresh foliage or flowers. Place them in fun vases, refresh the water regularly and trim the bottom of the stems, to extend their lives and prolong their freshness.
Play with color. Anything colorful, from accessories to art or an area rug, is an easy way to freshen your home for spring. Use green, pink or yellow to really invite the spring in. Place a cheerful area rug or a floral stool in your living room, place some fun accents on your coffee table, and you will notice their immediate impact.
Bring the freshness in with scents. Stock your home with scented candles, essential oils, air fresheners or reed diffusers in wonderful springy fragrances like lavender, citrus, jasmine or rose petals. Ahh, it’s the perfect whiff!
