Tip: Re-deploy your accessories
Rather than going out and buying all new accessories for spring (though it is certainly tempting!) I like to start by giving all my existing accents a good cleaning and then re-deploying them throughout my house.
I find that after a while, I stop seeing all those carefully planned vignettes. By re-arranging the pieces, I get a new appreciation for them along with a whole new look - and don't need to spend a dime.
For example, candlesticks that had been hanging out on my mantel have found a new home grouped together as a centrepiece for my table.
A vase that had been filled with winter-themed baubles, also on my mantel, has been filled with limes and paired with a bottle of gin and a martini glass and tealight combo on a serving tray on my dining room console.
I also see it as an opportunity to switch up my artwork, which, like my accessories, also tend to fade into the background after a little time. I started with the piece above my mantel, shown, swapping out my makeshift snowflake artwork for a streetscape (made from Ikea fabric).
These minor changes have made my home feel fresh again just in time (*fingers crossed*) for the warm weather!
