Spring is arguably the most beautiful time of year. Everything is in bloom, the trees and grass are becoming greener everyday and the sunshine is out longer and longer! For me this is the perfect time to freshen up my house with light colors and new linens. I love coordinating my place-settings with fresh flowers. Nothing adds better ambiance than beautiful flowers.
Spring cleaning is a great time to take a look at all your kitchen towels and purge those older worn linens for fresh, clean new ones.
Add a sprig of flowers in your napkin at brunch. Your guests will be enamored.
Adding a bit of ruffles or embroidery gives an instant touch of whimsy and sophistication. Making even a basic breakfast nook feel like a special occasion.
Natural linen & colors make for that simple barnhouse chic look that I love in many interior designer's homes.
Keeping your colors subdued and natural makes your table feel earthy.
The lovely thing about using linen is that it's reusable and better for the environment. Many people don't realize that linen actually gets softer and softer the more you wash it. It's a very resilient textile. Perfect for the table.
Lastly when in doubt add fruit! So many stylists will tell you that adding a bowl of fresh fruit to your table or kitchen adds instant life! I love a pretty bowl of fruit against a crisp white table runner.
Good Luck with your Spring Cleaning! :)
