Spring is the time of rebirth and rejuvenation, and what better time is there to extend this theme to your home? To help you celebrate spring’s arrival, here are some tips to lighten and brighten your home.
Rearrange The Furniture
Pull your furniture away from the walls. A sofa arranged diagonally across a narrow living room will make the room look wider.
It’s cheap, you can do the job yourself, and it creates a instant change. Try a color you’ve never tried before — kiwi green or a pale violet — something you’ve always wanted to try. A couple of gallons of paint is a very inexpensive experiment.
When you have a neutral palate to work with, you can change the way your room looks just by replacing a few basic items. For a quick change, you can add sheer curtains, flowered pillows, and add some fresh flowers.
Bring In Plants
Greenery always adds a breath of fresh air to a room. If you don’t have a green thumb, try silk plants and trees. The quality has gotten so good that its hard to distinguish them from the real thing.
Lay An Area Rug
An area rug is a wonderful way of defining a conversation area. Lay it at an angle under your coffee table or ottoman.
