In exactly five days it will officially be spring! Yay! Winter is so freakin' long in the northeast, isn't it?! With the extra hour of daylight and the warmer temperatures this week, I'm motivated to refresh my house and start some projects.
I get so excited that I get overwhelmed thinking about all of it. So I have to slow my roll and make a plan. I'll lay it all out for you if you're feeling the same way.
Follow my Facebook page for step-by-step details in the next couple of weeks to stay on track freshening your home. When you have a plan to follow, the tasks at hand aren't so overwhelming. But here are the main categories.
1. Declutter - It's tough to get anything accomplished when your house is cluttered with stuff. Marie Kondo's KonMari method is a whole-house approach to determining what will stay and what will go. I'll outline her process over on Facebook.
2. Clean - Once everything is put away it's easier to clean, vacuum and polish surfaces. I'll share a checklist on Facebook to keep you on track.
3. Redecorate - Using light colors and fabrics makes your home feel lighter and airier for the upcoming warmer seasons. You may have pieces that you love and may want to incorporate some newer, trendy items this year. On Facebook, I'll be posting an entire plan to get just the right look and function for your space.
If you're a fan of Instagram (gotta love the gorgeous pics!), you can find me here where I also share beautiful photos, ideas and generally what's happening in the world of decorating. My website is where you can see some of my own projects.
If you like my style, please spread the love. The more people I can help, the better. ;-)
