Celebrate Spring Decorating Ideas

Celebrate Spring


I don’t know about you but by the time March rolls around, I am ready to celebrate. Even though as I write this and look out my window at the snowflakes descending from the sky, I am inspired to start decorating for Spring. Officially Spring doesn’t start until the 21st of March, but here are some ways to get a “hop” on the season and decorate your table for Spring.


Put all your eggs in one basket
This centerpiece is beautiful in its simplicity.  A beautiful rustic wire basket filled with pastel eggs. It is a perfect centerpiece for Spring and can be used specifically for Easter. The colors would complement almost any décor. In this example, baby’s breath was used as an accent, but really any spring flower would work well. You could mix in some colorful crocus’ to add a bit more interest.





Birds Nest
This is an interesting take on centerpiece.  It is more for a casual setting, perhaps a breakfast bar.  I really like the shades of blue represented in the eggs and how they contrast with the dark nest.








Floral Arrangement


One of the things I love most about spring are the flowers. I love having fragrant flowers picked from my garden all around my house.  In this centerpiece, the vase is filled with colorful eggs.  This was achieved with an outer vase and a smaller inner vase.  The eggs are placed in between and the flowers can be in the inner vase.  Adding the inner vase allows you to keep the flowers in water but not the eggs.



Nature's Harvest
The carrot goes hand and hand with Easter; after all,  it's what the Easter Bunny eats. What a perfect element to incorporate into your dinner table centerpiece. This centerpiece uses fresh carrots complete with the leafy tops and simple yet beautiful daises.







Bountiful Spring
I have to say it, but I LOVE this non-traditional centerpiece. This one from Southern Living not only uses flowers but incorporates carrots and brussel sprouts.  This centerpiece is eclectic and would work well in an elegant dining room or in a farmhouse kitchen.

Happy Spring Decorating, everyone!!

Top 5 colors for Selling your Home

Paint is probably the easiest and most economical change you can make to your house when it is on the market. A fresh coat of paint can instantly change the feel of your space. When you’re selling your home you want to make the space neutral to appeal to a wider variety of buyers.

Gray has been popular for a couple years, and in 2020 it is still popular but much lighter than before. Grey is a great color to use when a house is on the market, it creates a warm and sophisticated feel. With the trend being going towards lighter colors we are seeing white and light creams becoming popular.

Here are the top 5 colors to use when putting your house on the market:
Pale Oak: This color from Benjamin Moore is becoming a favorite color among sellers and home owners alike. It has enough warmth in the gray family to keep it from looking cold and sterile. This color is versatile and depending on the room and lighting it can take on different aspects. It really coordinates well with almost all color…

READY, SET, DOWNSIZE!

By Deborah Goode, CID
There can be many different reasons for downsizing – but moving is probably the most common. Well, I’m not moving, but the older I get the more I get annoyed at all the stuff I’ve accumulated over the years. Does this sound familiar to you? 
In the past, I would move to a different home every four years. And every time I moved, I would sort through my stuff, donating lots of bags to the Salvation Army, Purple Heart and Goodwill. As you can tell, my love of shopping for clothes, shoes and decorative items has always gotten me in trouble.
However, now that I’ve been living in the same house for the past five years, my “stuff” has been multiplying exponentially. Not only is the crawl space under the house filled up completely, but we now have a garage that has no more extra room – especially for a car. And it's migrating to my two spare bedrooms and the closets are bulging at the seams. I'm really tired of the piles which seem to grow on a weekly basis. And eve…

A Relaxing Bedroom Color

Your bedroom should be calm, it should be a place of rest and relaxation. But all too often it becomes a place to catch up on work on and watch TV. While bad habits are hard to change you can still make your bedroom the oasis it ought to be using one simple trick-- paint it blue.


The color blue soothes the mind and promotes physical relaxation. It is a color that represents peace and tranquility, and it promotes calmness. It has been shown to slow the metabolism, suppress appetite and even to help reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
Blue is one of the most popular colors as demonstrated by the color trends for this year. Three top companies have chosen a shade of dark blue as their color of the year for 2020. Even the darker shades can make a room feel bigger and more spacious. But if you are not ready to paint the whole room in your favorite blue hue, try it on an accent wall or incorporate it into your décor choices.
Here are some great shades of blue to use in your bedroom:
