Bring Spring Into Your Home With Bold, Fun, Welcoming Decor!




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)

No, not a real one -- an art print or sculpture will do rather nicely, and the brighter the décor item the better! After all, what says spring like the return of so many of the birds that we haven't had the pleasure of seeing since late last summer?

2. Add a Splash of Sunshine With Bright Yellow

Change out dark, wintry throw pillows for some bright yellow ones, or reupholster your dining room chairs in the cheery hue. Just as bright yellow daffodils brighten up a winter-to-spring landscape, a few touches of yellow will brighten up your home for the season faster than almost any other color -- even on those days when April showers can make your house seem a bit dark and dreary!


3. Spread Some Tulips or Paper-whites Around the House

Whether bright or pastel hues are your preference, tulips and Paper-whites are quintessential spring flowers, and they’ll add a touch of elegance along with a welcome burst of soft spring color. They also do well in pots placed in bright, well-lit areas! 

4. Paint a Bold Accent Wall

Saturate just one wall in your living room, dining room, foyer or kitchen with a bold spring color, like this lively green. (It's just one wall, so it's color without too much commitment.) Then, add something pretty, like a table with some cheerful spring flowers or a beautiful framed art print.

5. Bring a Room to Life With Bright, Bold Throw Pillows

Put away the dark, cozy colors until next winter, and bring out some bright spring-y prints and solids in bold colors for an inexpensive, but distinct touch of spring.

6. Hang Some Gauzy Curtains

Spring is about lightness, airiness and romance, and what better way to symbolize all of those things than with a billowy pair of gauzy curtains as you open a window to let some of that fresh, mild air into your home this spring?

7. Wake up Your Front Door Area, Porch or Sunroom

Create a show-stopping display at your front door or in your sunroom made up entirely of spring-blooming bulbs in clay pots. Try tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, crocus, snowdrops, and more exotic varieties like Peruvian daffodils (aka spider flowers).

Weeding Your Lawn in Winter

Basics for getting your backyard weed free and spring ready   With a chill in the air and frost on the ground, it may seem that tending to your lawn is counterproductive.  However, if you have been looking out your windows or taken a close look at your yard lately, you may have noticed that clovers are thriving and other sprouts have started popping up. Before these nuisances gain the optimal conditions to proliferate, go ahead and get a head start on prepping your grass to minimize your to-do list and to maximize your time enjoying your outdoor spaces when it becomes nice outside.   Locate and Plan   If you remember back to the warmer months when it seemed that the landscape was plagued with unsightly and infinitely multiplying weeds, you will likely get a good sense of where many of these patches are located.

Creating an Outdoor Retreat

Protecting Your Outdoor Spaces During The Winter

Winter is here, which means that you should officially be checking off the outdoor winterizing that’s been on your to do list for months. Outdoor spaces can be a cherished secondary living space to us, especially given the level of time and money that we dedicate to the design and upkeep. When the spring comes, we often jump at the chance to set all of our outdoor items up, start planting, and restart lawn maintenance. But, when the leaves start falling and a chill hits the air, we long to hold on to those endless summer nights. For this reason, many people put off important maintenance required to preserve external assets. Striving to minimize damage to patios, decks, sunrooms and other outdoor objects should be at the top of your to do list during the fall each year. Preventative tasks will help prevent costly repairs or replacement. With a little bit of sweat equity or help from third parties that specialize in this process, you can assure that you are taking the appropria
