Spring Cleaning: Time to Refresh Your Room

When grey skies turn to blue, and the daffodils and tulips start to bloom, it can only mean one thing… Time to refresh your decor! (Oh, and that it’s finally springtime, of course.)

Giving your abode a much-needed zhush doesn’t mean you have to redo every room from top-to-bottom! Here are three simple and stylish ways you can update your space for spring.

1. Beautify Your Bed


Duvet covers are divine. Why? Because they’re an easy way to give your whole room an update without having to buy a brand new comforter every time! Plus, they fold up neat as a sheet for simple storage (who has space for a comforter closet?).

We couldn’t think of anything more appropriate for springtime than the Revive for Success Duvet Cover. With its light ‘n’ bright colors and a pretty leafy and vine print, this cover will have you dreaming about all the exciting outdoors adventures ahead! Bonus points if you perk up your sleeping space with some peppy new pillows.

2. A Gallery Wall Haul

Gallery walls — unless you’ve been living in an alternate universe in which Pinterest does not exist, you probably know ’em and love ’em. While they look pretty darn impressive, they don’t have to be created exclusively with museum-worthy artwork. In fact, you don’t even need to frame anything if you don’t want (this also makes things renter-friendly, because you can use double-sided poster tape instead of nails!).

We created our gallery wall using a few pretty prints, hanging picture frames, a cool clock, funky geometric objets d’art — and some cute notecards! That’s right, the bright bird prints you see above are simply colorful notecards that fill in the smaller gaps ever-so-perfectly.

A few fab gallery wall tips: Use prints and objects of various sizes and shapes! Don’t be afraid to mix it up — different textures, colors, and silhouettes just add to the interest. Also, be sure to lay everything out on a space on the floor that’s roughly the same size as the wall you intend to use. There, you can play around with different arrangements until you get things just how you want them. Once you’ve found the layout that you love, then pop everything up on the wall, take a step back, and admire your decor accomplishment.

3. Improve Your ‘Shelf’-Esteem


Last, but not least, it’s time for some ‘shelf’-reflection… Changing up your shelf-dwelling odds ‘n’ ends and knick-knacks is a simple way to give your room a fresh feel! (And, if we’re being honest — all that stuff probably needs a good dusting too, right?)

We suggest you start your spruce-up with a pair of rad new bookends to corral all your favorite reads. Now, the key to Instagram-worthiness: varying the height of your objects! We went with a tall framed print, a sizable-yet-stunning trinket box, one of the jewel-shaped objects you saw on the gallery wall, pretty votives, graphic containers, and a very unique vase. For extra texture and color, you can also drape a pretty paper garland across the shelf. Voila! #Shelfie mission: accomplished.
