Spring Decor: Fall In Love with Your Home All Over Again

Officially, we’re only a month or so into the winter season, but most of us have had enough. It’s time to start looking ahead to spring. And while we can’t control what things look like outside, we have complete control over the scenes we set inside our homes. Luckily, for all of us anxious to refresh our interiors with a colorful spring vibe, Lakeside is ahead of the game. Start decorating earlier with these new spring decor products.

Add A Splash Of Color

Many of us decorate for the holidays, adding items old and new around the house. But once we take down the decorations, what’s left can look ordinary. In the depths of winter, it can even look plain. This is the right time to add a splash of color. All it takes is one exciting piece to transform a room. Here are a few beautiful items that add plenty of color, are ease to incorporate into the room you choose and truly scream, “Spring!”

Efficient Home Upgrades

Winter complicates many things and adds an entire new set of chores to our everyday lives. Most of us just put up with complications and discomfort. This is especially true in the winter. But there are many affordable products out there that won’t just help us get through winter, but improve our everyday lives overall. If you’re ready to solve household problems or improve the functionality of your home, check out these new helpers.

Always Be Organized

Just as important as decorating for spring is the ability to organize everyday things to keep them out of sight. It’s much more difficult to let your spring decor shine through all the clutter. Some of that clutter just needs to be straightened out once and for all, like files and documents in the home office or kitchen. Other areas are in need of storage for daily cleanup. And some out-of-sight areas like closets need a makeover of their own.

Bring the Garden Indoors

For many of us the ground is still frozen and unfit for early gardening. That shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the beauty of nature inside your home. It won’t be long until you’re able to get out and start planting, but you might be anxious to get started. More importantly, you might need a colorful vase of flowers or lively planter to get you through the dreary winter months. Bring the garden indoors with these spring planters or holders.

An Early Spring

Everyone knows the feeling when winter finally breaks and spring takes root. That first day or first week fills us with joy, finally allowing us to put winter in the past for awhile and look forward to warmer days. Bringing some of our favorite spring characters and colors to our home is one of the best ways to fight off the winter. Give your home a lively accent with wall art, or start defeating winter outside with lively spring decorations.

DAY FOUR Holiday Fun Fact:

The traditional Christmas celebration might revolve around the birth of Jesus, but fewer babies are born on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day compared to the rest of the calendar. Christmas Day is the least common birthday in America, second only to Leap Day. Christmas Eve isn’t very far behind, ranking fourth on the list. With Thanksgiving falling on different dates, it’s likely that it takes the top spot regarding holiday birthdays.
