Spring is finally here! I love getting out and seeing the beautiful blooms, hearing the singing birds and sitting in the warm sunshine.
As we enter this new season, here are a few ways to transition your home to spring:
- Inside the house. Trade out heavier throws and pillows for a lighter weight fabric. I like to trade my wool throws for cotton or linen. It’s also a good time to give everything a good wash before putting it away for the season. I like to change out greenery and freshen up areas like the coffee table and shelves. A new vase, collected objects and something cut from the yard is always a recipe for something new and fresh!
- In the closet. Now is a good time to put away heavy sweaters and swap in warm weather favorites. I like to make a pile of things to keep, donate or consign. I put baskets at the top of my closet to corral winter items like scarves and heavier socks. It also looks pretty!
- Outside the house. I LOVE planting flowers! I clean out my beds and planters to get ready for the new season. I make a plan for what I would like to plant and see what other materials I need. Planting is like painting to me and I use the color of flowers and the texture of plants to plan my landscape.
- In the garage. I have kids that play multiple sports that change season to season. Bins have become a lifesaver for keeping gear together. We keep cold weather gear together like snow pants and gloves. Each sport has a basket assigned to it so we aren’t chasing shin guards or other missing practice essentials.
These are just a few simple ways to transition into a new season. What’s your favorite way to freshen up for spring? Let us know your favorite tips in the comments below.
