While I may have woken up to a few inches of snow this morning that doesn’t change the fact that according to the calendar it is officially the second day of Spring. There are so many things I love about this time of year, fresh flowers, leaving the house without a jacket, spending more time outside and most of all getting my home ready for the sunnier and warmer weather we have in store. Changing your house with the change of seasons doesn’t mean anything drastic like painting or getting new furniture. For me, it usually means simple things like a new accent piece and even a bit of Spring cleaning. Here are three easy steps you can take to get your home ready for the change in seasons:
1. Lighter Brighter Accents: One of the biggest reasons I love neutral toned furniture and wall colors is that it makes it easy to change things up. Spring is time to get adventurous in your home and add those bright pops of color you have been dying to try. It also means it’s time to pack up those cozy faux fur blankets and switch them out for something a bit lighter in weight. I’ve had my eye on this one for our living room.
2. Fresh Flowers: This may seem kind of silly, but honestly, adding fresh flowers in a pretty vase to any room in your home will instantly get you in the Springtime mood. I don’t know what it is about flowers but they without fail will make your home more inviting and of course they are pretty to look at!
3. Spring Cleaning: Last but not least give your home a good Spring cleaning. What does that entail? Well, for me, it usually means a good closet clean out s well as getting down and dirty dusting those hard to reach areas under your bed or behind your couch. Knowing my home is clean and tidy makes me roll up the window shades and spend the afternoon with the windows wide open.
