The clocks have sprung forward, the days are getting longer, and while there’s still some snow on the ground, Spring has officially arrived! Spring cleaning can seem like a daunting task, but with a little planning you can get your home ready in good time so that when the nice weather arrives once and for all, you’ll be free to enjoy that bike ride or first patio of the season, guilt-free!
I just finished the process of selling my car privately and going through the purchase of a new-to-me vehicle. It brought up many thoughts, both about my own buying style along with how there are similarities with the home buying/selling process.
So where do we turn to for design ideas?
Websites, magazines, HGTV, boutique stores, friends (or enemies) homes, vacation spots, mustard splattered on a wall (thank you tv ad) or that very vivid dream you had after eating the pulled pork sandwich from "Trailer Pork Boys" too close to bed time and you've decided to create a southwestern themed room...all of these things can give you design/decorating ideas. How to sort through what is good and what should be forgotten? Here's one of my favourites....oh and do try the pulled pork, it is delicious, but maybe walk around the block before going horizontal.
