SPRING REFRESH CHECKLIST
Spring is well underway, which means it’s time to rid your home of those winter layers and refresh. The following Spring Refresh Checklist has simple ideas for getting your home springtime ready.
✓ Lighter and Brighter
Add springtime hues to your home. A simple swap out of pillows, poufs or paintings is a simple way to incorporate seasonally-appropriate color within a space. Feel like making a bigger impact? Paint a room with a fresh new color, like Pantone’s color of the year – Greenery.
✓ Shed Layers
Be on the lookout for those warmer layers that have built up over the winter. We’re talking those cozy throws, pillows and fauxs that kept your warm during the winter. Be sure to clean everything before packing them away for the season, so they’re fresh and ready come next year. For extra fluffy items, vacuum bags can help you save on storage space.
✓ Stain Patrol
More time indoors could mean more messes and stains. Take a look around for stains on flooring and upholstery that you may have missed during the winter months. Or maybe even some holiday stains you haven’t gotten around to. Make a list of items that need to be cleaned and check them off a few at a time.

✓ Closet Purge
Whether it’s your closet or your home’s mudroom, it’s time to let go of winter clothing and accessories. Before packing everything away, take time to purge any items you didn’t wear or use over the winter season. Likewise, take a look at your spring and summer items to see if there’s anything you no longer need or will use. We promise, you’ll be delighted at the space you create for a few fresh new things!
✓ Treat Yourself
Get something for your home that you truly love. Whether it’s a piece of art that makes you happy or a new sofa that looks as good as it feels. Even one small addition to your room – if you truly love it – can fresh the whole space. Read. Set. Refresh! Spring is here, so kick off those cozy slippers and get ready to refresh your home.
