It’s nearly springtime! We've all been longing to see some color and waiting for the first spring bulbs to pop through the thawing soil. Inside, we’re clearing the cobwebs, opening windows and changing out heavy winter decor for bright, bold colors and lighter fabrics. Here are 7 ways to welcome the feeling of spring into your home ...
1. Add a Bird (or Two)
not a real one -- an art print or sculpture

6. Hang Some Gauzy Curtains
is about lightness, airiness and romance, and what better way to symbolize all
of those things than with a
