SIMPLE WAYS TO FRESHEN UP YOUR HOMEFLOWERS

Make it feel like spring inside no matter what it is doing outside! Fresh cut flowers instantly brighten your home, making it colourful and inviting. It is an easy way to introduce trendy colours that you don’t have to commit to forever. Besides, they make your home smell great too! You can change them out weekly to keep your look fresh.

MIRRORS

Mirrors reflect light and, when used correctly, can create fantastic visual drama. Large options can be pricey, so visit your local thrift store or purchase inexpensive, unframed panels. Hang them across from or adjacent to windows to add depth to a flat space. Or, set them under or behind accents for an instant play on light.

ESSENTIAL OILS

Dilute five to 20 drops of essential oils in 2 cups of water, and fill a spray bottle with the solution. Spray the mixture into the air in the stuffy room to freshen it. Create your own blend of scents. Lavender, tea tree, citrus, peppermint and lemongrass are all naturally freshening.

WHITE VINEGAR

Fill a spray bottle with distilled white vinegar. Spray any indoor surfaces that still smell, particularly if you notice mould or mildew spots on them. Vinegar kills mould and deodorizes. As the vinegar evaporates, its odour fades.

PILLOWS

Throw pillows are inexpensive and easy to change out. You can refashion the entire colour scheme of a room with the just a few throw pillows. Remember, it is just an accent, so don’t be afraid of colour!
