Tips n’ tricks to freshen your space in 10 minutes…
- Rotate Artwork
Are your walls all cluttered with stagnant artwork? Then it’s time for a change!!
Separate art into summer and winter piles. Hang the lighter, pastel colors for spring and summer – then put the darker colored artwork in storage. Every six months, rotate your pieces. This way, you enjoy your art with a new season… Even better, this is something you can do in minutes.
- Soothe the Senses
Spring is not only a colorful season, but a fragrant one too so bring the aroma indoors. Scents have a way to change our mood as well… the simple use of candles and fresh cut flowers can change the overall feeling of any space.
- Update Accessories
Just as you’d add a scarf, belt or necklace to enhance an outfit, do the same with your home. Dress your home like you would yourself. Look for great accent pillows in bright colors. Put away the winter throws and drape light & bright throws on your sofa. Pick out spring-hued vases or candles to boost a cocktail or dining room table.
- Lose the Magnets
In just minutes, you can tidy up a kitchen by getting rid of the scraps of paper, business cards and take-out menus stuck to the fridge. Keep out and organize things you use on a daily basis… As the expert says… “Invest in a pretty!”
