It's Spring, Wake Up Your Home!

Warm weather and longer days make us all think Spring! Just as it happens in the natural world, bring Spring into your home slowly at first. Starting with the entry way is perfect. Add a bright rug, a few flowers, and light weight curtains and you are well on your way to a great spring makeover! 

In my own home I have always been hesitant to make the switch from the warm and cozy winter decor to the light and cheery colors of spring. I have learned that by making the change slowly its not quite the shock it used to be. Don't get me wrong, I would take spring over winter any day but I've always thought that when compared to my winter accessories, spring "stuff" some how left the house feeling bare. I've also had trouble adjusting to the color change. I love bold colors and am drawn to reds, so needless to say, there are several red rooms in the house. Christmas and winter decor blend great with the walls and hardwood floors. It always seems to take me a while to get use to the white, pink and yellow of spring.

By making the transition slowly and by going room by room (not that I still have stockings hanging over the fireplace) it makes it a much smoother and easier process.

Here are a few of my favorite ideas!
