Is it just me or do you feel it too? The nip in the air is becoming less nippy and little by little we can finally begin to peel off some of those layers of clothing. Spring is making its way to the northern hemisphere. It’s time to say goodbye to that cabin fever that has been plaguing many of us for longer than we care to admit.
There is so much to look forward to, after all, spring is a time of rebirth and renewal. Snow will soon begin to melt; foliage will begin to once again turn a beautiful, vibrant green; and animals that were in hiding during the winter are peeking their heads out of their homes. With more enjoyable weather and more hours of daylight coming our way is the opportunity to spend more time outdoors. This is, by far, one of my favorite things about springtime.
With the change in season, you’ll also find that a new color palette is a must. Say goodbye to the dark hues of winter and hello to energetic brights that will do wonders for your state of mind. But don’t worry, you don’t need to go all out or even spend a lot of money. A few key outdoor accessories will do the trick.
A simple and affordable way to liven up your outdoor sofa or lounge set is with new outdoor pillows. Pick up fun patterns, lively florals and geometric stripes and instantly transform any piece of outdoor furniture.
Patio umbrellas come in so many styles and colors, there is sure to be one that will call your name. Already have an outdoor umbrella? Pick up a new umbrella replacement canopy in a color like sunflower yellow, tangerine or dolce mango and you’ll always have a reason to smile.
Another way to get creative and revamp your outdoor décor is with an outdoor rug. Just like umbrellas, outdoor rugs come in so many patterns and colors, you can’t go wrong. My personal favorite print is the chevron stripe. It’s stylish and available in a number of colorful patterns that will be the perfect addition to your outdoor space.
With a few simple accessories, you’ll find that your favorite happy place will be even happier!
