We are all so ready to open the windows and let the sunshine in. Such a long winter this year. If you are thinking of gathering a few accessories to update your home, here a a few quick and inexpensive ideas to get you moving:

Start with your front door entry! There is such a wide selection of beautiful outdoor rugs to be found. Remember to think BIG, and colorful:

Take a look at your entry room as you enter the front door. Does it look cheerful? Can it use a fresh rug runner to use in the Spring and Summer? Try switching out some of your entry table accessories to make a new, lighter vignette. I love seeing fresh flowers when you first walk in a home. Don’t you think they make such a great first impression?

For the kitchen, again a new colorful rug will change the look and feel of the whole room:

Here are a couple examples of rugs that will work well with both white cabinets or stained wood:

Both rug colors will also work great with a white sofa as well as a chocolate brown sofa in the living room.

And my favorite way to bring in Spring, if you have not guessed, is flowers and branches. Love!

Dampen my spirits. I am moving forward and may the snow and cold be gone!

Has Spring arrived in your little section of the world?

Easy Flower Arranging

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

One of the easiest way to dress up a room is with flowers.

  House Beautiful

But if you are like me, I find arranging flowers to look nice in a vase is almost impossible!   I have read books on how to start with the tallest flower and work your way out and I have studied pictures and try to copy, but my homemade arrangements always look sad and bad.  So I want to share a couple HUGE decorating tips I found that works everytime you want to bring fresh flowers in your home.Arrange one type of flower in one color, cut short. Buy twice as many as you think you should — too much of a good thing always works with flowers.  THAT’S IT!

Another easy way to bring in the outdoors is using branches.  Especially now when all of the spring branches are just starting to flower. The best container to use for all types of branch arrangements is a cylinder shaped vase.It’s a statement — like having a miniature tree in your house. Here is a picture below of an arrangement I put together last Spring.
