The windows are being thrust open and clean, crisp air is clearing away the dusty and musty. It’s time to take advantage of this spring momentum and take a new, unbiased look at our homes. If you committed to a design idea 6 or 7 years ago, it may be time for a fresh and current feel and this is a great season to add/subtract/replace and edit.
Some rooms need to gain a little weight and some need to lose a few lbs. Having said that, when in doubt, take it out! Accessories and items like framed photos, candles, books, and orchids that have lost their vigor – remove these and set them aside. Then take a look at your space unadorned and re-evaluate.
Small changes, like a new mirror in the hallway, a new occasional chair in the living room, a new lamp with a crisp black or white shade, colorful pillows or artwork, can make a space that’s becoming a little tired feel reinvigorated. Statement pieces with classic silhouettes are an easy fix that gives that timeless feel.
Changing our personal spaces gives us renewed energy that will inspire, provide comfort, and offer a playful freshness that your springtime home craves.
