Spring is in the air! Take advantage of the resources at hand and make the most of the creative and useful ideas for Home and Garden that are available online, in books and libraries and give your home a sprightly look.
Try rummaging in your own home
If you are on a budget, use whatever materials you have at home before going out and buying anything. Make an inventory of discarded, faded dried twigs and flowers which could look new with a fresh coat of paint or just soap and water. Mix these with a few fresh twigs or flowers and arrange them in attractive bowls. Enhance your window treatment by just changing the drapes with colors that reflect the season. Re-arrange objects and centerpieces and notice how a little re-arrangement projects a newer look. Change furniture around and bring out the patio armchairs. Revive neglected garden furniture with a coat of polish or paint if you are one of those who love pottering around in the garden.
