5 Smart Ways to Refresh Your Space
Open the curtains, let the wind blow and brighten up your home decor.
With spring comes a sense of renewal, and a desire to clean, organize and refresh. Because, East or West, home’s best. Turn your creative gear, and turn your space into a trash can. You will be amazed at how simple changes can give your home a new look.
1. Embrace natural light
The sun gets hotter with hot days, so open these blinds and baskets in natural light. Instead of turning on your lights in the morning, pull back the curtains and direct the sunlight. The simple process of opening your windows helps lift your spirits, and you’ll also save a little on your electricity bill.
Don’t have more windows? Use large mirrors to illuminate and illuminate your room. Bonus: Mirrors also give the illusion of a larger space, which makes your home feel brighter, taller and cleaner.
2. Give your furniture a clean slate
Spring is the best time to break your light and cool clothes. And it is also for furniture. A white, beige or light gray sofa is the best place to nest.
Light neutral chairs set the tone, reflect light and prevent you from overheating. If desired, you can keep these pieces away throughout the year to evoke memories of spring and prevent winter gloom when the skies are brown. If you don’t want to commit to white furniture, invest in slips that you can use seasonally and remove when the cool temperatures return.
3. Make nature your guide
Add light weight natural ingredients to your decor. Think of curves, woven baskets, light wood grain and cotton curtains. Lean on nature and keep it light to impress you.
Replace heavy blankets for a summary throw, and pack heavy, dark decorations in favor of a basket paired with colorful or nature-inspired accessories. By incorporating earthenware into your home, you attract nature in and out for a fresh and refreshing feel.
4. Pack some cartons with colored pops
Spring is the best time to dig out all these thick blacks and winter grays, and some gladly trade in it. Orange, pink, yellow, purple, blue and green are the colors that remind you of spring and sunshine. Choose your favorite color from the rainbow and run with it. Try some peach-throwing pillows, spring green candles or a periwinkle decorative bowl.
Get out of your comfort zone and try to make a bold statement, or keep cool with the slightest hint of something you know you like. You will be amazed at how high your mood is when your shade is surrounded by beautiful colors.
5. Take a deep breath when you are green
Adding potent plants, bouquets and flower gardens to your home is a great way to bring in the outdoors. Not only do they provide beautiful focal points and improve your mood, but they also give you small amounts of oxygen – so take a deep breath.
Add to your local farmer’s market for cheap and beautiful blooms, or grow herbs in window pots. And for all those black thumbs out there, the wrong plants will still give a fresh green look, but without any hassle and care.
Whether you want to refresh one or two rooms in your home or look at your entire space, there are simple steps you can take to keep your home spring ready. Give yourself a new perspective and a fresh perspective by taking the time to reshape your space and your mindset.
From blending colors to influencing nature, you can completely transform your home into a sunny, light and airy place.
