Spring is among us and no matter how short-lived the season we welcome the change of pace. Below are some tips to swap out the warm winter vibes for brighter, invigorating tones to spread positive energy all throughout your home.
A Whiff of Spring
Swap out candle accents for floral arrangements that will add pops of color and your favorite scents of the season. Shop your local market for the freshest finds or, if you are on a tight budget, opt for smaller and less expensive selections at your nearest grocery store. Think vibrant greenery with white, yellow, pink, or purple shades. You name it – pick your favorites! You can also opt for fake plants and add in your own natural scents with a room diffuser using essential oils in lavender, lemon, grapefruit, or other energizing fragrances.
Time to pack away the heavier throws and cozy winter blankets for next year. Go for more of a minimalist look with clean, sleek, more light-weight furniture. Instead of dark woods and metals, add in lighter toned shades. Think whites, light greys, or softer pastels hues. This can also be done without changing all of your furniture. For example, try changing your pillow covers, removing curtains, or adding a white tray to your coffee table. Find ways to bring natural lighting into your home so you can bask in the sunshine and welcome in the warmth.
With the cooler months behind us, continue with your theme of a much lighter and brighter ambiance. Clear off shelves, rearrange your coffee table (maybe even add a new coffee table book that makes you smile), and get rid of the clutter. Spring cleaning is a great way to make space for the year ahead. Box up your once beloved favorites and donate the no longer needed items to those in need to spread your wealth and pay it forward. Invite room for playful energy and fun!
