With spring around the corner (wahoo!) it’s about that time to start spring cleaning – and more importantly, spring redecorating (it’s a thing, I swear!). However, you don’t have to spend a pretty penny to freshen up your room for spring. I’ve created a list below of quick and easy ways to freshen up your room! Enjoy!
1) A Bouquet of Fresh Cut Flowers
This year I’ve become a firm believer in fresh cut flowers, and try to have a full vase in my room at all times. Not only are flowers pretty and fragrant, they also deliver several health benefits (who knew!). First, flowers have been proven to be a mood booster and reduce levels of anxiety. Further, they create that warm and fuzzy welcoming feeling creating a refreshing environment. Need I say more? And girls, don’t wait for your boyfriend/husband to buy you flowers. Treat yo self!
2) Choose A Mood You’re Going For – And Color Code Accordingly
The psychology of colour is a real thing – colors have been proven to have the ability to alter moods. Before decorating your room ask yourself: what mood do I want to create? For those who want to feel energized and uplifted stick to warm colours such as red, orange and yellow. On the other hand, if you’re wanting a more tranquil, relaxing feel cool colours will do the trick. If you’re like me – you’ll want to accent your room with purples and blues to create a relaxing ambiance.
3) Increase Your Sensory Experience
Similar to colour, scents have a powerful effect on your mood. Interior decorator Nate Berkus recommends mixing and matching scents that compliment your personality. For an effortless everyday fresh scent, stick with scented oil warmers. I’ve been loving P&G Unstopables Scented Oil Warmers for freshness up to 60 days. I simply plug my scent warmer in and with it’s double-wick technology it automatically alternates between two different scents! Or, if you’re more of a candle person – light a candle for a relaxing and warm glow.
4) Keep Your Linens Extra Fresh
Between washes, keep your linens smelling extra fresh with fabric refreshers. Fabric refreshers literally make me feel like I am jumping into bed with new sheets everyday. I heart you. Since they smell super fresh I can fall asleep faster! For more information on how to get a better sleep click here.
5) Don’t Forget Your Clothes Too!
Give your clothes that extra TLC refresh feel with Fabric Refresher! The P&G Unstopables Fabric Refresher (Seriously, what haven’t they thought of?) provides lasting freshness in the form of dip and dots. Okay not really, but these beads seriously remind me of dip and dots (am I alone here?!). Anyway, through some of these beads into your wash and you’ll have up to seven days of freshness with each use!
6) A Positive Attitude
Last, but certainly not least, freshen up your room with a positive attitude. Start every day with a grateful heart, and know that are you good enough exactly as you are. If you’ve had a bad week or month, decorate your bedside table with framed uplifting quotes as a reminder to keep a positive mind. Read them to yourself every morning to start out with a fresh mind.
