Use one of these interior design trends to freshen your look for spring!
1.) Purchase fresh linens in a bright color for your bathroom. If your budget allows include a new shower curtain and throw rugs to coordinate. Splashes of color are sure to make your senses blossom! Now’s the time to retire heavy winter fragrances. Replace old candles and air fresheners with soft floral or fruity scents.
2.) Keep a fresh bunch of flowers on your bedroom nightstand and as a centerpiece on the dining room table. Tulips make a lovely cut arrangement. Lilac give the added perk of making the room smell sweet. With a little thought you can enjoy fresh cuttings throughout the spring and summer. Don’t have your own garden? Ask a neighbor or plant some bulbs today!
3.) Feel overwhelmed with spring cleaning and redecorating? Instead of tackling the whole house, start with just one room. Start with the room that needs the least amount of work that way you’ll motivate yourself with quick progress. Bedroom need a face lift? Make a list of the improvements you desire.
Make sure to price each one too. Then define the list to just what needs to be completed otherwise you may never start for fear of what it will cost. For example, a new bedroom suite may be desired, but you may be able to achieve the look you want by painting your current furniture set. You may really want sconce lighting to highlight the bed, but two new lamps may erase the shadows perfectly. Much cheaper than hiring an electrician!
4.) Sometimes something as simple as a few new kitchen towels and several new and inexpensive place settings can give your senses a boost. Box up old dishes and store in the attic temporarily. Unpack them in a few months when you’re tired of your new place settings. You’ll probably discover that you still love the style and want to use them again. If not, no problem. They’re already packed up to give away or sell at a garage sale!
