Houses tend to get stuffy and cluttered during the winter and few of us ever have time for spring cleaning. So, now’s the time to give your home a new look for summer and relax in the new ambience you can create for yourself in less than 1 hour.
#1. Add a bowl of lemons to virtually any room.
#2. Remove any throw rugs. Throw rugs are essentially for collecting dirt so add a happy mat to the outside of the entry door.
#3. Add seashells for decoration. You don’t have to have a house in the Hampton’s to invite the fresh feel of the sea in.
#4. Display last year’s vacation photos. Nothing brings a smile quicker than watching your 8 year old splash on the beach next to Grandpa.
#5. Change out the throw pillows…it’s amazing what two fuschia colored pillows on the beige couch can do for your psyche.
#6. Light a candle. In the summertime (most of us live in air conditioning), a Pina Colada scented candle can bring in the beach feel in a second.
#7. Remove 3 things from your target room. Most homes are riddled with clutter and this simple step will open up the room.
#8. Paint…if you want to make a drastic change on a little amount of money, paint the room. Even an accent wall (painting 1 wall out of 4) will change the look and feel of the room. You can paint a wall in an hour.
