The weather has certainly given most of us a touch (or worst) of cabin fever. Even some of us in warmer areas have experienced a wetter and colder winter. So every now and then we get a warm 75 degree day and feel Spring is around the corner. Not so fast! We may have several months (sorry) before the last frost.
Here are three ways to give Spring a push!
Buy some daffodils or tulips. Place them in a mason jar. This will add a bright spot to any room. These flowers cost $6 at our local grocer.
Grow something indoor. Amaryllis bulbs are super simple to grow and produce large flowers about 4-6 weeks after planting-long before it is “really” Spring outdoors. (Here is a little trick I use to get the Amaryllis greenery to start popping out of the bulb. Place a tray or dish on a heating pad and set temperature to low. Set the planted bulb in a pot (not too deep-see photo), on top of the tray or dish that is on the heating pad. The warmth will trick them into thinking it must be Spring)! These bulbs were planted the second week of January. My Spring is on its way! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Add some color somewhere that hasn’t had any. It could be new colorful, fused glass cabinet hardware for a vanity or a new Company C rug for the kitchen. Whatever makes you smile. The color will certainly add punch to brighten your day even with gray winter skies.
I already feel like Spring is closer just by sharing these tips with you!
Give it a push…make Spring come sooner in your home!

With spring just around the corner we are all ready to dust off the cobwebs and let some sunshine into our homes. Try freshening up your space with accessories that can be swapped out for different seasons.
In these two photos we used the same soft, moss green Company C sofa. (Yes, even green can act as a neutral backdrop.) Here is a collection of orange and red pillows, an area rug, and accessories that give you a feeling of warmth and comfort. But don’t forget an element of fun like the funky owl.
Now watch as we take the same green sofa and liven it up with a Spring-inspired arrangement. The chevron design of this geometric rug is really in keeping with the trend this year and sets the color pallet. We’ve added a bit of whimsy with the ice cream cone pillow and the joyful pink flower. Also, remember that you can swap out your family pictures seasonally. What a great time to pull out the pictures of the little ones at an Easter egg hunt!
You may have everything you need in your home to make the seasonal swap. Try pieces you may not have used in a while. Clear glass jars can be filled with colorful items like beads, buttons, ribbons, marbles, and even Easter eggs for spring. Candles can be another inexpensive boost of color. Trade accessories from one room to another. A small vase makes a great toothbrush holder! A mug can become a flower pot. The possibilities are limitless!
