Spring Home Refresh

Give your house or cottage a fresh new look with these simple tricks!

Small tricks and projects can really elevate your decor and give your space a whole new feel.

Revive Your Bedroom

Strip the flannel sheets and go for cool, silky, high-thread-count cottons. Change out winter comforters, bedskirts, duvets or pillow shams for others in light-colored sheers and florals. Changing linens can honestly make a room look brand new!

Bring The Outside In

Fill vases with your favorite flowers and place them on tables, mantles and window sills to remind you that spring is here. Buy an inexpensive bouquet at the grocery store and split it up throughout the house. Don’t forget nature’s other gifts as well. Gather branches, pebbles, shells, etc and place them in simple containers around the house.

Give Life To Old Furniture & Accessories

Adding doses of color doesn’t have to mean a big price tag. Purchase second-hand items such as a side table, or a dresser. Small pieces can be easily sanded, primed and painted with your new favourite colour. When you’re tired of them and want to create a new look, give it away or re-donate it.

Perk Up Your Pillows

One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to update your home is to make or buy new pillow covers for your throw pillows. Replace the throw pillows on your sofa or bed with bright colors & patterns and don’t be afraid to mix in a bold print.

Paint An Accent Wall

Spring is the time to paint, since you can finally open your windows and let the fresh air in. Paint an accent wall a high-contrast color (the brighter the better). All you need is a single quart to completely transform a space. You can add in accessories and decor to complement it and simply change it when you get tired of it.

Give Your Bookshelves A Boost

Relieve the dullness of rows and rows of books. Sort books by size and subject, line up books, some vertically, some horizontally, in patterns, or arrange books by color for another surprising change. You can also pack a punch by sticking some wall paper inside the back piece of the shelving unit. It’s quick and easy to do, and you get the look of wallpaper without it taking over the entire room!
