Three Ways to Welcome Spring

Spring has definitely arrived! Here in Salt Lake City we even made it into the 70’s this past week! The air smells and feels different and makes me giddy at its freshness… it has been one loooongg winter! Here are a few things to make the most of this perfect time of year in your living spaces.

LIGHTEN UP

It’s time to fold up the blankets, roll up the shaggy rugs, and store away the fur pillows, heavy duvets, hats and scarves. This process of ‘putting away winter’ will make you feel refreshed and make your home feel open, spacious and uncluttered.

We use our favorite totes and store away winter items in the basement or garage leaving drawers and closets open and airy.

UNDER-ACCESSORIZE

Spring is the time to worship mother nature and invite her into your home. Sole blossoms and blooms make a dreary room alive, house plants have the same effect.

Undo the layers of winter and really lighten up the mantle and walls by removing cluttered frames and candles.

ADD AROMA

Scent is a powerful tool for the environment in your home. The last thing you want is for your new spring space to smell like steamed broccoli. I am in love with Mrs Meyer’s new radish scent cleaning products.

The scent smells like fresh wet grass and will make your house smell perfect while you are spring cleaning or washing the dishes.

These three things will hopefully bring a little spring in your step to enjoy your home this season. Do you have any rituals or routines around your home this time of year?

    I love that first room! What whites did they use for ceiling, trim and walls?!

  12. Emily Says:

    Hi Mari, this looks like a true Hi Hide White, which should be a color most paint brands should carry.

    I’d love to know where the light wood mirror in the third picture is from if you know. Thanks!

  14. Emily Says:

    Hi Kara, unfortunately I don’t have the source of that mirror. This pic is from Kerri Russell’s home that was featured in Elle Decor. Here is the link: http://www.elledecor.com/celebrity-style/homes/keri-russell-home?click=main_sr. Good luck with the mirror hunt!
