Spring 101

Spring is here! I know the first official day of spring was over a month ago but it hasn't really truly feel like spring( for an entire day) until this past weekend. In fact, this is what I woke up to just last week.

But that's all over now (no I am not going to jinx it) and to help things move along here are some surefire ways to make the inside of you home feel spring-like (even if mother nature isn't helping).

Bring on the Colour
I like the idea of switching up a few accessories here and there to transition from winter to spring. Watercolour inspired accessories are everywhere and add a great burst of fun, cheerful, springtime colour.
Paint Palette Pillow - CB2

Watercolor Duvet - Urban Outfitters
Get your Grow On
Plants instantly make a home feel alive and fresh. Now is a great time to get indoor and outdoor plants as most of the stores are stocking up as well as local farmers markets. Planters and pots also offer a great excuse to be creative or introduce more colour! My plant related goal this spring is to start a herb garden for my deck. 

Look what I picked up this weekend

Freshen Up
One of my favorite things about spring is the chance to (finally) open the windows and air out the house. Mix in a little spring cleaning and soon everything feels fresh, clean, and new. I am planning a major reorganization and purge of my garage in the coming weeks - I'd love to set up a craft area.

I am so excited because the warmer weather also means that I can start working outside on some of the projects I've been storing up. 

What are you doing now that spring is finally here?



  1. Fact: I need that pillow it is wonderful.

  2. I want to do nothing more than get you this pillow for a gift and wrap the package with rainbow yarn :)
