A Spring Spruce Up
With pollen season in Atlanta officially behind us, I’m ready to throw open my doors and welcome spring with open arms. You see spring is my favorite season. There’s something just so fresh and renewing that comes with spring.
For me, along with welcoming warmer weather spring is also about spring cleaning and sprucing up my home. I spend at least three weekends going through my entire house and taking stock of what I have. Donating what I no longer love. Organizing what I do. And freshening up the spaces I live in most.
While this is a spring time ritual for me, this year it was fun to partner with Ebay to invite spring into my most lived in room during eBay’s”liven up your living room event.”
I love shopping with Ebay because I’m able to find those new, trending pieces I crave and also vintage pieces I love adding to my collection. Plus did you know that 68% of items on eBay ship for free?!?!
To freshen and lighten up my living room I added a few new items and switched up a few old. I folded up and put away my heavier blankets and throws until next season and replaced them with more appropriate ones like this and this. I also snagged a great seagrass basket to store them all in along with pillows at the edge of my sofa.
I updated my coffee table with a new vintage found vase from Italy filled with the mascot of spring, tulips. And while I wasn’t searching for him, I couldn’t turn down this brass turtle. I mean how adorable is he perched on my favorite coffee table books!
While I never believe you can have too much greenery, that thought never rings more true than in spring. So along with the tulips I added a topiary in a bright green vase. The combo really makes the room come alive, and topiaries are so easy to care for.
These few simple changes really spruced up the space and made it feel like spring had arrived both inside and out. Truly, MKR
