Spring Inspired Home Decorating

shutterstock_184955369It’s that time of year here on the east coast when you start itching for warmer temperatures. The days become longer, and it always makes me want to clean out the winter feel and invite the spring into my home decorating. First let’s look for some inspiration!

Things to do to get you in the spring spirit:

  • Attend an event at your local garden center such as Terrain in Glen Mills, PA.
  • Gardners located in Chester Springs, PA has a lovely large greenhouse where you can walk around in a warm environment and take in all the wonderful smells and colors of fresh plants.
  • Longwood Gardens – plan a day and visit the conservatories at the world-renown gardens where you can walk in a warm, beautiful, flower-decorated environment and be swept out of winter into a gorgeous natural view.
  • Linvilla Orchards located in Media, PA offers a variety of classes and events.
  • Attend the Philadelphia Flower Show which runs March 5-13, 2016 and you will be amazed at the beauty!

Bring some spring touches into your home decorating!

Bring spring into your home! Purchase some bright yellow daffodils or tulips from your grocery store and place in a clear vase filled with colored gems, limes, small kumquats or whatever inspires you. Or, fill a tray with bright lemons, limes, or lovely Granny Smith apples and use as a springtime centerpiece on a table or buffet.

Add touches of spring colors to a room. Bright new pillows, a spring-colored throw for a chair, some new candles that match your spring color and you have a new bright look for a room!

I found a fun, DIY project where you can create botanical prints. You could paint a dark entry or mudroom with fresh paint and use these prints as a way to express spring! Click here for a link to the how-to video.

Let’s Welcome Spring with Home Projects

photo-1419293667059-7f9357d09013-resizedAs we finish off the month of March here on the east coast, we have seen every weather combination this month … from frigid cold, 8” of snow to 65-degree weather – Welcome to Spring! With the start of April and enjoying the longer days of light, we naturally are drawn to the outdoors. Spring is a good time to consider some outdoor projects to get your home ready for outdoor fun or if you plan to put your home on the market to sell this year. Consider one of these outdoor projects:

  • Remove winter debris, broken branches, and leaves that have accumulated under bushes, etc.
  • Consider a lawn service to put down grub control and fertilizer, remember you have only until the Forsythia blooms to get the grub control to work properly!
  • Get your outdoor furniture ready for use and parties! Click here to review different cleaning options from Real Simple on ways to clean the various types of outdoor furniture.
  • It’s too early to put out any flowers but Pansies, and who doesn’t love a lovely pot of pansies to bring spring cheer!

As spring begins it’s that time of year when we think of renewal, new colors, lighter feeling coming out of our hibernation. Consider one of these indoor projects:

  • Complete that painting project that you have wanted to do. It’s also a good time to consider painting your kitchen cabinets if you were thinking of updating the look but unable to afford the expense of new cabinets. Click here to review instructions on how to paint your kitchen cabinets.
  • Get rid of old stuff and clutter! Too often we pile things and call it organized and only move those things from place to place to get them out of the way. It’s time! Get rid of it! You will be amazed at how liberating the process can be. Create your three piles, sell, throw away, give away and truly adhere to this project until you are done! To read some fabulous tips on how to go about this process, read this article from House Beautiful on creating breathing space in your home.
  • Lighten up! Clean the windows, have your drapes cleaned or consider replacing them if they are old and faded or simply out of style.
  • Add a fresh color scheme to your living space! If you like the color blue, add blue throw pillows, candles, trays or vases all using the same blue color and balance throughout the room. You will be amazed at how much joy this will instantly bring you!
