Do you feel like your home has the winter doldrums? It’s time for a spring reset! Today I’m over at The Decluttered Home sharing 10 DIY ideas to bring spring to your space!
1. Add a rejuvenating mix of spring colors to your home via BHG
I can HARDLY WAIT for warmer weather. Yesterday it was so pretty (and even kind of warm!) outside, I opened the windows, mixed up some amazing spring scents for my home (I’ll link to my current favorite natural home scents below!) and walked around our yard to see what was there! After days and days of crazy windstorms and downpours here in Seattle, it was a much needed day to take a deep breath of spring air, refresh the house and just get outside to enjoy the vitamin D!
Since we have only lived in this house through fall and winter, spring and summer are going to be SO FUN because we have a wonderful new yard to explore and enjoy. I love our backyard, it was one of the selling points of our home. It’s a wonderful size and there are flowing trees, bulbs and blossoms! I’ll do a whole post on our yard soon to give you a little tour, but today I am inspired to just celebrate that spring is here (or at least on its way, right?).
This post offers six ways to celebrate the happy sights and scents of spring, what are your favorite things about spring?
2. Explore your garden, enjoy the blossoms or plant something new!
