Thankfully winter is in our review mirror. Lately, when the sun pokes through the clouds, it feels like a miracle. Most of us feel traumatized from the long and snow covered winter. Let’s do a sun dance, since some of us are feeling vitamin D deficient. The others went south for the winter…. Lucky them!

Spring is here, and I’ve never been so grateful for a season as I am now. If you have been hibernating this winter now is a great time to find some spring motivation to dust the house and freshen up your home. Seasons are a fabulous excuse to freshen up, rejuvenate and update the interior of your home.

Here are some my favorite ways to cheer up your home for spring.

Use watercolor floral prints. These typically are colorful and soft and add a burst of spring. The easiest way is to change out your throw pillows or curtains.

Foliage Add big statement leaves in bold vases. From banana leaves to palms it’s an easy way to add freshness and vibrancy to your home. They are low maintenance if you refresh the water regularly and cut the stems they will last for months.

Bold front door. Paint your front door a fun new color. It’s an easy way to change things up and add some color.

Bring the outside in. Don’t have a garden? Not to worry. These terrariums are a terrific way to bring some life into your home.

These are a few ways to update your interior with a breath of spring.

If your thinking about executing a larger project here in the gorge this summer, now is a great time to start planning. Our local trades people are very busy and it’s a good idea to get on their schedule now for summer. Be sure to think about scheduling, budget and, of course, design of your future project.
