Decorate With Flowers On Everything

- Remove heavy curtains from windows and raise the shades to let the sunlight in.
- Store heavy blankets from the sofa and beds in baskets or a nearby closet. Replace them with light throws if some snuggling is needed.

Like spring, redecorating is about newness and change. It is easy to understand why making a few small changes – or one major one – in home decorating is an easy way to welcome the season.
