There’s hardly a better feeling than stepping outside into the sunlight—especially after a long, dreary winter. But what about capturing that same sunny feeling indoors? Here are some simple ideas for bringing spring into your home.
1. Start by spring cleaning
It may not be your favourite chore, but a fresh and clean home helps usher in the new season. Make a to-do list and tackle spaces one by one—focus on washing linens, dusting, and putting away winter clothing, footwear, and decor.
2. Add fresh blooms & greenery
This one’s a no-brainer. A vase of colourful tulips, daffodils, or greenery instantly livens up any indoor space.
3. Open the windows (and wash them!)
Throw those windows open at the first sign of warmer temperatures to get fresh air circulating throughout the house. And while you’re at it, give windowsills a good dusting and clean the glass inside and out.
4. Circulate new scents
Seasons have distinct scents, and you can bring these indoors easily with candles, diffusers, hand soaps, and air fresheners. Try invigorating spring smells like florals and citrus, or clean scents like linen.
4. Swap out textiles
It’s time for winter flannels and fleeces to make way for lighter fabrics for spring, like linen and cotton. Change up placemats, table runners, and napkins in the dining room, throw pillows and blankets in the living room, dish towels in the kitchen, and switch out the bedding in the bedroom.
6. Refresh your space

7. Declutter, declutter, declutter
Spring is the perfect time to embrace a more minimalist, easy-breezy lifestyle. Sort through and pack up winter clothing, toys, books, and decor to donate, sell, or dispose of—you and your home will feel lighter for the warmer months.
