Spring & Home Decorating - A Fresh New Look
Open Windows ? Curtains fluttering from a warm breeze ? The air smells fresh and clean ? Buds on the trees are beginning to open ? Tiny flowers are popping up threw the ground ? Finally that little bird with the red breast is back
All of these can only mean one thing "Spring" has arrived. Those days of blustery storms and frosty drafts have come to an end.
With spring comes a renewed burst of energy. Having been shut inside for months we now want to get up, get going and do things.
This presents a marvelous opportunity for home decorating, a chance to give the inside of our homes a fresh clean look to match the emerging new look outside.
You now want to think light, bright and breezy, exactly like a beautiful spring day.
The following are a few ideas to help get you started.
Hang a wreath covered with pretty silk flowers on the front door. This makes a cheerful greeting to anyone entering you home.
Replace heavier drapes with lighter fabric and color. For example: Pastel colored shears or Café Curtains. If privacy is not an issue, try just a lightweight valance or scarf across the top of the window. The idea here is to let the sunshine in.
A new fresh look for you furniture might be just the ticket. Slipcovers are the perfect solution. If the budget is a concern, slipcover just one piece in the living or family room. Another idea is to cover the dinning chairs; this in itself will give a kitchen or dinning room a fresh look.
Painting rooms a lighter color can make a dramatic change. In fact color can completely alter the look and feel of a space.
