With Spring creeping in with a vengeance (the temps predicted to climb into the 80s this weekend!), we thought it was time to refresh our décor to reflect the season. Even if you’re not doing the spring cure, here are 10 inexpensive fixes to freshen up your abode and to bring the sparkle of the season inside…
Declutter your knick-knacks: Bare is better in hot weather. It’s visually cooling.
Open your windows: Let the fresh air circulate through the room. If you have curtains, now’s the time to take them down and have them dry cleaned and pressed. If you have miniblinds or shades, give them a good dusting. You may even want to take them down and wash them. Blinds can easily be washed in the bathtub.
Bring the outdoors inside: We know most people are putting their plants outside but we like to purchase a few to put inside our homes. In addition to adding colour and beauty, they clean the air. And, of course, we always have bunches of seasonal flowers around.
Decorate with fruit – and eat it: A big bowl of oranges, green apples or a sculptural artichoke look good and are good for you.
