|OUT WITH WINTER....|
|...AND IN WITH SPRING!|
So the weather is getting warmer and I should probably start packing away some of my winter clothes. It's still cold outside, but not hat and mitten cold, so I'd look kind of ridiculous wearing my really heavy sweaters and a wool coat. Besides, I'm done with them. It's been a long, chilly winter and I'm ready to move on to bright colors, lighter fabrics and fresher accessories.
After all, it's spring now.
So I really should get on it...but I'm not going to, that job is boring and annoying and I am not as much of a fashionista I used to be, I mean, I love new clothes, but I'm much more into decorating now and so I'm much more excited to start swapping out winter for spring in my home.
Right about now, lots of stuff in my house resembles that wool coat. Heavy blankets, dark window coverings, I can't wait to pack away the red velvet coverlet on my bed and crimson placemats in my kitchen. Those lovely rich colors and textiles light me up in the fall and winter. They give my home a cozy air, a warm, let's go sit by the fireplace feeling. They make every room a great place to curl up, read a book and escape from the cold...ahhh...
Quick Spring Update Tips:
*You get the most bang for your buck on larger statement pieces, like bed coverings and throw pillows. Pillow covers are great- store bought or homemade, they make storage easy.
*I change out curtains to let more light in and shower curtains to brighten the room.
*I pick up throw rugs in some spaces for a cleaner feel, it also preserves my rug- saving it from wet beach or pool feet. I remove cushions from some of my chairs for the same reasons.
*I rotate out some of my accessories like heavy candlesticks and frames, replacing them with glass and light colored items.
*I bring the outside in, cutting everything from forsythia branches to zinnias for vases.
*I make sure not to forget my front door! ;)
