1. Refresh Your Linens

First and foremost, it is time to refresh your linens. Especially your white linens, that may be looking a little dingy from the winter season. It’s also a good time to invest in new bedding basics. Swap out the extra warm duvet for the ultra lightweight one; get rid of the comforter on your bed and substitute it with a coverlet. Always select new pillows. It will make such a difference for your sleep at night.

2. Bring the Outdoors In

There’s nothing better to get you excited about springtime than bringing a little bit of the outdoors inside with a new plant to energize your space. I know we don’t all have a green thumb (that includes me too), but even a succulent, a cactus, or a low-maintenance snake plant can make all the difference. (If I can keep them alive, I know you can.) The corner in your room really just needs a plant, not an extra chair.

3. Find New lightweight window treatments

The velvet curtains with the blackout lining may need to go, or you need to invest in a double curtain rod so you can add on light-filtering window treatments to your space. Let the sunshine in! Some of the best window treatment options for the spring are linen and cotton fabrics. You will see them in a myriad of combinations in the marketplace with a lot variations in how sheer the fabric is to filter light into the room. That diffused light will make everything look heavenly. If you’re up for the challenge, you can follow Homepolish designer Leah Ring‘s tutorial for dip-dying your own curtains.

4. Say Goodbye sheepskins, hello lightweight blankets

I know I love sheepskins. In fact, any excuse I get to layer one into a space, I’ll pounce on. But let’s face facts. Now is the time to store them away for the fall (okay you can keep one, but the others need to go). It’s the time to get out those lightweight throws and cotton blankets. Look for breathable fabrics like cotton to layer onto a chair for the spring season.

5. Reorganize your closet

This may seem like an obvious one. This is also a good time to revamp your wardrobe, which means it’s also time to reorganize your closet. You may need to rehang, and possibly redesign your closet for springtime. Edit your wardrobe down to reflect those clothes, shoes, and bags you actually need for the springtime weather. And hey, once you’ve edited… maybe it’s time for a bit of shopping! #treatyourself

6. Update your bar cart

Your bar cart is probably still layered with the heavy bourbons, whiskey, and all of those great liquors that literally warm you up when you drink them. Well, springtime is lighter and warmer, and you should embrace a brighter palate for your taste buds. Consider changing up the your beverage list, add some lemons and limes, cut flowers, and some Pellegrino to your bar cart. Switch over to clear spirits like vodka and gin. We know you’ll look sophisticated with a martini glass in hand.

With these six simple steps, your home will look and feel rejuvenated for the spring season.
