Hello my friends. Snow is still on the ground around here, but the air is getting a little bit warmer and the sunshine is ever so beautiful and very much needed around here. I love the change the new season brings because I find it brings in change in us, in me personally and in our home.
I’ve got a busy week ahead and it mostly has to do with cleaning, decluttering, donating and goodbying with old things I got too attached to and don’t need anymore. This will be an interesting test if I can at least try to affect my hoarding nature. Here is the exciting part. We, or I should say the amazing hubby painted out the entire living room over the weekend. I am embracing a lovely shade of pure and clean and simple – white. I am the happiest girl because that’s really the loveliest gift to come home to (after a 4 day weekend at my sister’s ;P) Now, we’ve got a blank canvas,literally, to restyle the heart of our home.
To me this is it. It is refreshing and exciting to move a few things around. Get a different feel in an old space with your old things that you’ve learned to love. But things are already different. There’s some sorting already done, piles for giving away, donating or disposing. Decisions like that are not easy, it’s a long road and some of it may just go back into an old box with old dust still on it. (ok I’ll wipe off the dust). But I’m scared of letting go and yet I know that is the secret to fully refresh my home and my soul.
The time to do this couldn’t be more perfect as I will be accompanied by my blooming magnolias brightening up my process. This is such a lovely way to refresh our space for a new beginning; to repaint with the perfect cleansing shade of white and to bring in a vase with blooming magnolias. Because you should know, that is the first decoration that will be going into this still empty room. And once that beautiful sunshine starts getting brighter and giving us a helping hand to melt away some of that snow, the windows will get opened up to ventilate some more and bring in more freshness….. all perfect to welcome spring.
How do you refresh your home for spring?
