Nothing says spring quite like breathing new life into something cozy and familiar. Enter Isha Verma, a data scientist by day and avid DIY-er and thrift store upcycler by night. We love Isha’s approachable way of teaching folks the value of sustainability through thrifting; after all, spring is about the old becoming new and beautiful again.

Isha curated a mood board for a soothing, inviting living room refresh inspired by the Air Wick® Scented Oils Peach & Nectar scent. The plug-in device offers an early start to spring with fragrances that keep your home fresh. Her mood board proves that spring is what you make of it: Soft grays and beiges abound, and they’re anything but boring or washed-out. “Seasonal decor can be an opportunity to get creative and personalize your living spaces,” Isha says. “It’s a chance to experiment with new colors, patterns, and textures, and to express your personality and style in your home.” If like Isha, your version of spring is all about calming hues, go for it!

Isha tends to favor neutral colors for larger pieces of furniture and adds pops of color through decor and accessories. To keep her mood board from feeling one-dimensional, she focused on patterns. “The pillow cover has a warm caramel background and light flowers, and the intricate motif brings subtle beauty to the room design,” she says. To keep a serene space from feeling too dull, be sure to break it up with moments of levity and interest. Botanical prints or flowers can breathe life into a room without overwhelming it with too much color.

Inspired by her Air Wick® fragrance, Isha incorporated a print of peaches for a hint of freshness. Speaking of fragrance, switching out your scent is another wallet-friendly option for a spring refresh. To create a happy and bright seasonal mood, experiment and find one that works for you and your home.

“Scent can play a significant role in creating a welcoming and comfortable home environment. It has the ability to evoke emotions and memories, influence moods, and affect how people perceive and remember a space.”

Refreshing your space for spring doesn’t have to mean spending a ton of money.

Finding the right thrift store piece, switching out your pillow covers, or trying a new Air Wick® fragrance can give your room a fresh spin on a budget. For Isha, the elements of a well-designed home are simple: Layout, lighting, and attention to detail can all help you craft a space that feels useful, personal, and special.

If you’re feeling like one of your rooms needs a spring refresh, consider how you use it and build from there. “A well-designed space should demonstrate a high level of attention to detail, with careful consideration given to every aspect of the design, from the placement of accessories to the selection of art and decorative accents.”
