It was in the forties here last week, and I honestly thought it felt like spring. I am soooo ready for spring. I am anxiously waiting for warm breezes, longer daylight hours, and the fresh start that spring brings.
More after the jump...
Do you switch out your decor with the seasons?
I'm not talking about new furniture and paint. Although that can certainly be fun ;-) I'm talking about accessories.
A new pillow, maybe even some new bedding. Lighter and brighter colors.
Last year, we were rearranging some of the rooms in our house, so I took the opportunity to lighten up our living room for spring.
I switched out our black and white area rug for a blue and white rug.
I added some brighter pillows...
...and created a white mirrored console for our TV. The room felt entirely fresh and new for just a small investment.
As I just proved in our kitchen update, small changes can make a huge impact. So I'm challenging you, my dear readers, now that spring is just around the corner. Take this opportunity to lighten and brighten your decor. You don't have to spend a lot of money. Actually, you don't have to spend any money. You can shop your house. Just find some accessories that shout "spring" and put them out. See what kind of a change you can make!
And since the Groundhog predicts an early spring, maybe we wont have to wait so long for spring to arrive after all!
