Spring 2019 Home Trends

DIY Projects

I have seen SO many homes getting a “Spring Refresh” and I love this idea!!! Along with decluttering and cleaning, I think our homes would benefit from moving pieces around or adding a few inexpensive ones! Which lead me to creating this post!! I’m always trying to do things on the cheap without looking cheap. So here are things that I would put in my own home that don’t cost an arm and a leg!!

 

Swap out throws and pillows

If you have any heavy wool throws or pillows lets store those for next winter and put out some nice light throws. I’m always down for snuggling with a blanket, but the light fabric used in these throws are perfect for the rising spring and summer temps.

Adopt a plant

Indoor plants are all the rage right now. I mean I have several myself and love them dearly. But they also have many benefits that most people don’t talk about. Like most plants filter your air and put out clean air!

My most recent plant adoption is this baby fiddle leaf fig tree! I’m in love!! It arrived SO healthy and with minimal disturbance for having just come off the UPS truck. The fun with buying one this small is you get to grow it! It can reach up to 5 feet tall and add a large amount of texture to your room! It’s even under $30!!!

Succulents are incredibly easy to care for. Especially for beginners! These are just a couple on Amazon, but you can also visit The Sill and order many plants from them!

Terracotta pots add a light breezy feeling to your plants. They are neutral and these are the perfect size for those adorable succulents.

Change our your bedding

I have this same duvet cover, but in black. It legit is SO pretty and really great quality!!! Everything is starting to pull back towards the 70’s, and what is more disco than velvet? You won’t regret this one!

Add some new pieces

Adding some glass jars with a few stems for a center piece is a classic and chic look. Bonus these glass jars are on sale and under $12!!!

No matter what time of year it is, weaved baskets are always a good idea. They are perfect for those larger plants to sit in and cheaper than a new pot for them when you don’t want everyone to see the plastic store container it came in. And this one is only $19!

Adding tea towels to your kitchen are always a great way to add a little pop or fun color without creating anarchy in your color scheme. They are a low commitment kind of accessory.

I totally get it if you feel more like me and can’t always afford to buy something new. SO I suggest doing what you can with what you have! Flip over your couch cushions, clean both sides and admire the fresh clean feel. Shampoo your rugs and carpets, this always makes a huge impact in my house. Move around your pictures on the wall, or take everything off your coffee table and only put back the items that “spark joy”. I have even gone so far as to rearrange the furniture in my house. Moving things around always gives you a new perspective and quick cheap face lift! Take everything off of your kitchen counters, clean it all and only put back what you love. Swap some decor between two rooms and feel accomplished. I know you knew this one was coming, add a candle, or febreeze or ANYTHING with a fresh sent. Smell is SO important!

There are a million ways for you to do a Spring Refresh in your house. All on the cheap. Stick with me kid and you’ll learn a couple things!

Let’s Organize This Place

Organize

You know that feeling where you are about to freak if one more thing falls out of a cupboard or your kids throw one more toy under their bed? Just me? Good to know.

I’m currently at this point. I was cleaning the house today and went to go throw a toy in the boys large outdoor storage bin that we have to hold all of their toys and noticed that the lid wouldn’t even close. You guys, this thing is huge. So to say that it wouldn’t even freaking close is just embarrasing. Well not embarrasing but real life. And thats what I am here for. So at my expense you can watch today’s stories on the IG to see what we did about it. But in the mean time I am going to share ideas on how I plan on organizing the rest of my house in the coming months!

Pantry

My pantry is always a source of frustration for me. I LOVE having a pantry to store my groveries in. However it’s like free range for my kids. Which leaves it in total chaos after they are done.

Now this pantry from my very very favorite IG duo, Classy Clutter, is total goals. And what I am hoping to achieve with my pantry makeover. You can find the deets for this makeover here.

I also purchased this glorious wallpaper to put in my pantry once I get to that point. Also from Clasy Clutter which you can purchase here.

Toy Orgnaization

This as well as the boys closet needs the most attention. Today while sorting through everything in the large bin I pulled everything out that was little. Hot wheels, small tractors, Paw Patrol figures, etc. and plan to put each of these in their own bins. I plan to put them up on a shelf so that frees up more floor space. But it will also keep my 2 year old out of the smaller toys which will mean less clean up for mom.

I love this idea that I found via pinterest from another fellow blogger here.

Master Closet

I have been noticing a large amount of clutter in the top of my closet. So I’ll be adding everything into baskets and labeling them all. Giving it a more clean and coheasive look.

I found this gorgeous netural image from Country Living. I also think the sorted laundry basket in the bottom of the closet adds a great layer to the already orgaized space.

Laundry Room

I have about 1000 kids. You know this right? Which brings at least as many pounds of laundry. I currently have 1 washer and 1 dryer. And my dream is to have twice as many.

Isn’t this amazing! It literally makes my heart sing and all my dreams come true! This will be a larger renovation but to organize something I need a place to put all of the laundry that has been sorted and is ready to wash.

I have a large counter that I love having to fold all of my laundry on. But the space underneath is not being utilized. So I hope to put in a couple shelves and add in baskets like above. This way I will be ablet to remove the laundry hampers that are currently taking up floor space in my laundry room.

So tell me. What areas are you planning on organizing now? Clearing the chaos will invite the peace into your home as well as your mind.
