Spruce Up Your Home for Spring

Can you believe Easter is around the corner? Now is the ideal time to spruce up your home for spring. Here are a few tips on how to give some new life to your space.

Start with a Clean Slate

I find the best way to get started is by clearing away the clutter. File or toss any paperwork that is laying around. Coffee tables can easily be a catch all clutter and outdated magazines. Start with one room at a time and sort your belongings into categories- keep, toss and donate.

Take all of the books, magazines and dvds off shelves and discard items you no longer have an interest in. When you place the items back on the shelves, add some character by stacking a few books horizontal and placing a framed picture or accessory on top. Donate unused items to your favorite charity. If it no longer fits, is broken, or you do not have use for it there is no need to take up valuable space in your home.

Flora & Fauna

Once you have a clean space, now it is time for the fun part! Add some flowers or greenery such as succulents to liven up your home. They require little water and are easy to maintain, even if you do not have a green thumb.

Easy Changes

Swap out your pillows and throws. It is an easy way to change the look of a room. Consider incorporating bright colors for spring. Choosing different textures and patterns will also add interest to the room.
