As we wade slowly out of the holiday season I don't know about you, but I'm starting to think about the colors and scents of Spring. I can't wait for the daffodils to start peeking their heads over the top of the raised beds in my garden, or for the weather to get slightly warmer (anyone else beginning to worry about frostbite on their morning walks?!). I love Spring, and I love taking the opportunity to give my house a bit of a refresh.
While you're considering your spring cleaning schedule, why not give some of these easy and fabulous decor ideas a try? We've collated 26 that will make sure everyone who spends time in your house feels like a Spring chicken!
