Five Quick Tips to Spruce Up for Spring

March 19, 2009

Fresh cut flowers bring beauty and wonderful fragrance into your home.Are you ready to say “goodbye” to Winter blahs and “hello” to Spring?  Here are some quick, inexpensive ways to spruce up the interior of your home to welcome in the renewal Spring has to offer:

1. Rearrange: This means furniture, accessories, artwork, etc.  Try moving the furniture around in a room to create new and interesting conversation areas.  Maybe take some books off the shelves and put them on the fireplace mantle.  Even moving artwork from one wall or room to another can create a whole new look and feel for your room.

2. Fragrances: This doesn’t just mean candles or diffusers.  You can bring fragrances in through fresh cut flowers or fragrant branches from your outside foliage.  If you must have fresh cut flowers and don’t have anything outside you can use, pick up a bouquet from the supermarket, separate the bouquet into different groups of flowers and spread them around the house in a variety of smaller vases.

Use brightly colored throw pillows to freshen up a room's interior.3. Bedding: New bedding can brighten a room in no time.  Get rid of the heavy winter comforter and bring in a lighter coverlet for the warmer evenings ahead.  Bring in more color with accent pillows in fun, springtime colors.

4. Good Day, Sunshine: Open up the windows.  Pull those heavy drapes back and add a shade or even sheer fabric that will allow the sunlight to come in.  And, for goodness sakes, clean the windows!

5. Accessorize: Simply changing the little things can create a whole new atmosphere for a room.  Buy throw pillows in bright fabrics.  Get a festive colored vase to hold those lovely tulips or daisies.  Use brightly colored candles to relay a feeling of Spring renewal.

These are all quick, easy and inexpensive ways to spruce up your home for Spring.
