But as we well know, spring makes everything young again. Edit out that accumulated winter clutter. The curtains are open, now let that wonderful sunshine fall on a room that has been de-cluttered for spring.
Believe in the power of pillows, instant personality. Think about those tired pillows that have been supports for those long winter days. Give them a rest. Add fun, down filled pillows to your room. Note, pillows need to be at least a 22inch square, for me, personally, 24 inches is the magic number. Down or feather down is the very best, if you have an issue with down, use the synthetic version. The look and comfort of down is very important to the space. Think of a beautiful silk scarf. Got my point? There is an art to pillows, use that art to make your room a happy spring and summer spot. Think of linens, bold stripes, buffalo plaid, don’t forget beautiful bright silks. Ta da, a happier room.
Now, let’s look at your walls. Do you need to a fresh coat of paint to brighten or intensify? Is that too much trouble? For you who answered yes, there is an alternative that isn’t so labor intensive. You got it, mirrors, but you already knew that. A mirror is a fabulous way to brighten and lighten your room. Think about it as your earrings, the thing that dazzles and adds pizzazz to the ensem. Would you leave home without them? You did go to a lot of pain and trouble to have your ears pierced, didn’t you? The same is true for your room. Add the dazzle, be brave, get a big mirror. Open up that room and let the light shine. You will not regret it!
So now that the nest is feathered, get outside in this beautiful sunshine. BOOM!
