Your Home Refresh

Now that the long, darker days of winter are behind us, it’s time to pull back the curtains, let the sunshine in, and give your home the refresh it deserves, a refresh that you deserve. How we intend to live influences how we live, and this intention is directly connected to the space in which we live.

A home refresh isn’t a complete overhaul of your home or a renovation; of course, you can do those things, but we are talking about small changes that can make a big difference.

Keeping the latest design trends in mind, these simple ideas and easy tips will help you bring new life into your space, and a fresh spring feel into your home!


Before you start your home refresh, consider parting ways with items that have been collecting dust, taking up much-needed space, or creating unconscious chaos. A spring purge doesn’t just eliminate stuff, it eliminates anything that gets in between you and the life you want to be living. Not only will you be refreshing your home, but your mind and spirit will also feel refreshed!

Decluttering can feel overwhelming, so start small, focus on one room at a time, and aim for progress versus perfection.

Rearrange Your Furniture

The saying goes, “there is no one more determined than a woman rearranging furniture by herself.” And we couldn’t agree more!

Home decor usually doesn’t undergo seasonal changes – frequently updating can be too expensive and cumbersome.

We have simple solutions that can reset your room without cost! Rearranging your furniture is an opportunity to change a room to support your desired lifestyle. As simple as relocating your bed to face the sunset or sunrise can be just the small change your spirit needs.

Add a Statement Wall

Bring life to your space by adding a display wall of personal photos and artwork, or choosing a bold paint color like Benjamin Moore’s color of the year, Raspberry Blush. Adding texture, color, or contrast can change the energy of a room. Whether you need a pick-me-up or desire a peaceful space, one wall can make all the difference.

Although paint is the least expensive option, a statement wall can incorporate a variety of materials. Wood and natural stone can transform a room into a warm and inviting place to unwind. Whether you prefer a moodier feel or a soft spa retreat, the possibilities are endless when using natural elements!

Update Your Textiles

Updating curtains, throw pillows, and rugs can add the latest colors and texture to a room without the work of painting or the cost of completely redecorating. Adding a small pop of color like Sherwin Williams’s color of the year, Redend Point, is a minimal way of creating a softer statement without the commitment of painting a room.

Create Multi-Functional Spaces

Are you working from home? Do your kids need a playroom? Where do guests stay when they come to visit? Multi-functional spaces are a growing trend in home design, and we can see why. Creating a room that serves multiple purposes, like a home office/guest room or a dining room/playroom, can help create a less stressful living environment and offer flexibility for your everyday life and activities.

Tips for creating a multifunctional space:

In larger rooms, create zones within a space by considering how you arrange your furniture. Rugs, mirrors, and lighting in areas can also help establish designated experiences.

If you have a smaller space, remove anything that creates separation so that your space visually flows and feels more open.

Consider dual-function furniture designsthat can be used in several ways to suit your interior needs, no matter the space.

Bring Nature Inside

Another design trend we love is bringing the elements of the outdoors indoors. Think concrete and wood, plants and stone. Bringing elements of the outside into your home can add a touch of nature and create a calming environment.

Science has proven that being in nature helps regulate our nervous system, improves our focus, and makes us kinder.

Don’t let the design name Brutalistic fool you. Raw materials, textured surfaces, and simple silhouettes are the hallmarks of a Brutalist interior design. Think concrete, clean lines, and neutral Behr’s color of the year, Blank Canvas. Soft edges, bare counters,  and a minimalist lifestyle remind us why less really is more.

Enhance Curb Appeal

As the temperatures slowly rise, the trees will awaken, and flowers will begin to show their vibrant colors and delicate shapes. This is the perfect time to freshen up your landscaping, nurture your yard, or add a personal touch to your porch. Whether you live in a house or a loft, it’s always a good feeling when you come home to an inviting space that welcomes you before you even walk in the door.
When it comes to your spring refresh, it’s important to remember to enjoy the process. After a long and cold winter, shedding the layers you’ve been cozied in can help your days feel brighter and your workload a little lighter.
