Spring is in the air! Well, maybe not quite yet depending on where you live. If you’ve been
shopping lately, the stores are definitely telling us it’s spring. So, we may as well fake it til we
make it, am I right?
Nonetheless, Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes the perfect opportunity for a fresh start. As an interior designer, I know that spring cleaning isn't just about tidying up your space – it's also a chance to take a look at your home design and make some updates. Here are some spring projects that you may want to start considering planning now:
1. Patio Furnishings Refresh
After a long winter, it's time to get the patio ready for spring and summer. Consider a refresh of your patio furnishings to make it more inviting for outdoor gatherings. This could include new seating, updated cushions, or even a new outdoor rug to tie everything together. I highly recommend buying pillow inserts and just purchasing new pillow covers to refresh through every season, much more cost effective!
2. Outdoor Kitchen
With the warmer weather approaching, an outdoor kitchen can be a great addition to any home. Longer days of sunshine, means grilling and entertaining guests in the fresh air. An outdoor kitchen can also add value to your property, making it a worthwhile investment. Struggling to see the vision?

3. Preparing your Garden
The first step in preparing your garden for spring is to clean up the garden beds. Remove any dead leaves, branches, or other debris that may have accumulated over these winter months. Pruning trees and shrubs in the early spring can help to promote healthy growth and prevent disease. Remove any dead or diseased branches and shape the plant to encourage new growth. This will help to prevent pests and diseases from taking root in your garden and will also give you a clean slate to work with.
By starting these spring projects now, you will be ready to enjoy your home to the fullest as
soon as the weather warms up. Feel free to reach out directly to find out how I can have your
outdoor space ready for summer.
