Easy Ways to Bring Spring into Your Home

Thursday, April 8, 2010

1) Switch out heavy fabrics, blankets and pillows for light weight cotton and linen.

2) Clip blooms from your garden and display them in your home, or splurge on some fresh tulips from the store.

3) Crack a window and let some fresh air into your house.

(imagine there’s a breeze flowing through this room…tough to get a photo of an actual breeze)

4) Add an inviting door mat and a pot of flowers by the front door.

Beautiful images! I love to clip branches from our flowering trees. I'm making pillows from burlap and linen to add spring to the living room. I just bought another$1.49 bunch of daffodils from Trader Joes!

Lovely! Flowers are BIG for me for bringing Spring into my home. I also add more whites & creams in my decorating and brighter colors. My garden-style decor comes out to be displayed too! :) Great ideas! Thanks!!

I do a little bit of Easter decorating, but for the rest of the Spring I like my birdhouses, (fake) birds, and flowers to freshen things up.

I've been opening my windows every afternoon lately and it's remarkable how cozy and different it makes my home feel!

Don't know...still working on it. I am trying to add more real flowers to my house. So fresh!

These are 5 very good ideas. What a lovely reminder. Iam really thinking about making light taupe slipcovers with a huge monogram on the back for my 18th century sofas. I think it would lighten up my livingroom!
Love the idea of opening windows! Fesh spring air!

I don't change anything in my house but I do stuff outside. I spring wreath on the door, plants, etc.

I love flowers too.

You mean I should remove the Christmas mat that is still by my front door? Can you believe that? How embarrassing. It really is. I'm going to move it now. BTW--I miss you! Shoot me an email sometime and let me know how you're doing!

OMG....I HEART that pinched quilt in the picture. Wherever did you find it?

For spring, we plant. A lot. I love fresh flowers and fruit from our trees in the house.
