10 Ways to Bring Spring into Your Home {even if it’s snowing outside}

I’m always anxious for spring, even when the weather is a little confused. If there’s a 70 degree day in January, you’re likely to find me in flip flops, soaking up a little sun with a smile. If not, you’re probably going to find me indoors living in bliss pretending that its’ 70 degrees and sunny outside. No matter the weather, today I’m sharing 10 ways to bring spring in your home so that you can do the same. I’m excited to be among great company and amazing talent today sharing our homes with you in collaboration with Country Living magazine.

My first step to spring decorating is to declutter. There’s nothing that makes your home feel lighter than eliminating clutter, unwanted toys, clothes and decor. It’s the perfect way to spend a chilly day {because I know you won’t want to do it when it’s gorgeous outside}, but it’s always worth it. Decluttering allows you to focus your eye on the decor you have.

I find so much beauty in organization. It doesn’t have to be all plastic and paper – I like to use baskets, peg rails, hooks and metal labels, too. {above: garage organization, below: kid’s closet organization}

One of my favorite ways to transition our home through the seasons is by changing our pillow coverss and throws. I added this sweet little bunny pillow cover in Adalyn’s room for an instant spring fix! I store out-of-season covers and throws in our linen cabinet. Her desk is actually a console table from Home Goods that we cut the legs down to accommodate her.

Through the year, I update little accents throughout our home, especially in our bookcases. I still haven’t decided exactly how I want to decorate our bookcases for spring, sooooo, I fast forward to summer, but they’re light and beautiful to me, so that’s all that matters.

Another easy spring refresh idea is adding your favorite spring scents to powder rooms. After all, who doesn’t let the smell of spring? Lavender, peonies, roses, oh my! I also added rose infused oil {from Home Goods} to our powder room to rid my cuticles any memories of winter.

I also like to replace hand towels. For the powder room I’m using these pretty striped lightweight Turkish towels for spring {also from Home Goods}.
