Here are four tips I use in my own home to transition from Christmas to Spring!
Flameless candles are a favorite of mine all year long. But especially when the light of day fades earlier, they can bring a warm glow to any room. Again I like to use the candles on timers. If I'm working in my office and walk into that brighter living room, the feeling is worth the price of batteries! I have a candle in each downstairs room--candle shaped, tree shaped and angel shaped. I've collected a different one each year.
Color brightens up space day or night. You don't have to repaint a room to make a change. Craft stores sell beautiful stems of flowers that just need a vase or mason jar for a home. Take an arrangement already present and add new color to it. Yellow, white, pink, orange and red add drama and warmth to a space.
Ribbon on Doorknobs
Have you ever tied ribbon around your doorknobs? (If you have cats or dogs you might have to forego this one!) Choose a favorite color in fabric ribbon and tie a bow around your doorknobs. Voila! Color and brightness.
