I started this post before Spring was officially upon us. Now that Spring is here, it’s all the more relevant. Enjoy!
I’ve been feeling the pull of spring… and of spring cleaning. I’ve recently cleaned out my closet and the basement. I’ve started a new to do list with the many areas I’d like to tackle around the new home.
This all got me thinking. What is it about spring that sparks this in us? Why do we feel called to “spring clean”? It’s all about changing our energy.
Decluttering, cleaning, organizing, refreshing; it all breathes new energy into our homes and we feel better for it. So dive into your spring cleaning and boost the energy level around your home. You may even be inspired to take your spring cleaning a step further with some spring decorating. Here are quick and easy ways to add spring to your decorating and change your home’s energy.
Add a New Color of Accessories
The two bedrooms below would’ve looked fine before, but the addition of a pillow in a bright complimentary color (yellow and orange respectively) works to change the energy of the spaces.
In living rooms designs , you can make a new color work by adding it in at least 3 places. In the room below, we see emerald green evenly added throughout the room. To make your space look really polished, find a coordinating item the pulls in the old color and new color.
Move Things Around
Try a piece that you bought for the bedroom in the dining room or living room. Sometimes we are too stuck in a rut. Just moving things around can spruce up a space. If that item doesn’t work in a different room, the change should at least get your creative juice flowing; changing your energy.
Try a New Lamp Shade
And if you really want to boost the energy, paint the lamp a new color inspired by bright spring tones.
Those are easy an inexpensive tips to help add a Spring Time Energy to your home this month. If you are ready to change the energy more permanently, Beautiful Habitat can help you create a design plan. Contact Us today.
