With Easter behind us and my allergies attacking with a vengeance, I can say in no uncertain terms, spring is here. So why not spruce up the house for the spring season with a few easy tips like the ones below:
Rearrange furniture. Your furniture arrangement dictates the flow of space & movement in your home, so rearrange the layout to ensure that you and your guests are a) near light, b) facing the outdoors and c) comfortably reminded of the joys of the season.
To supplement your new furniture arrangement, keep curtains open wide and clean off the windows to let your house reach its maximum sunlight potential.
All this sunlight can get hot, so use whites to reflect the sunlight and liven up the room without letting it get too warm. White fabrics, furniture, flowers and other accents are all fun, simple ways to bring the lighthearted youth of spring into your home on a budget.
Special tip: Also consider using mirrors or mirrored furniture to help spread the sunshine around your house.
In addition to white, greens and emeralds are great spring colors. They match the budding trees and plant life.
Finally, become friends with woven baskets and accessories. Spring is an outdoor season, so let the outdoors in with woven accessories made from hay or wicker.
How are you bringing the spring season into your home? Do you have any special ideas or designs for April and May?
