Spring Home Refresh

Spring is here, and nature is doing its annual “refresh”.  Let’s take our cue from Mother Nature and refresh our homes for warmer days ahead.  Need a few tips? Read on!


Here comes the sun 


After short, cold winter days, it’s great to have longer, sunnier days again. Welcome the sun indoors by opening wide those draperies and blinds in the daytime. Better yet, change out heavy drapes for seasonal curtains that are light in color and weight. You’ll be amazed at the lift you get from sunshine pouring in your rooms.


Let there be light


Extend that same sunny sensibility to upholstery and linens around your home by adding in some paler tone chair cushions, for example, or a new lighter color ottoman

  


 


Even some fresh new decorative pillows in summer-ready cotton and linen will do the trick!


 


Wondering how to refresh your dining space for spring? Try some light color slipcovers for your chairs. (Don’t have slipcover chairs? Get the look here.)


 

 

 

Material girl


Besides cotton and linen, other materials call forth a warm weather frame of mind. Rattan and wicker, for example, both of which can reflect either a beachy vibe or pure sophistication, depending on how you style it within your decor. Any of the woven grasses as placemats will also help create a spring tablescape.

 


 


In fact, natural woven materials can add spring notes anywhere in your home. Woven storage baskets look great and are useful everywhere!

 


 



 

White painted surfaces can also be part of your spring refresh because they help to bring light in and bounce it around your spaces.

 


  


And don’t forget the power of mirrors to do likewise, especially in rooms that have limited natural light!


 

 

It’s the little things


Lastly, when refreshing for spring, consider the impact of small changes around your home. Seasonal flowers certainly make all the difference….

 



…as do sparkling decorative accessories and fresh light scents…


 


 

…and even your artwork (lighter tones and floral motifs?) and lighting (glass! light reflecting metal! whites and brights!)
