Home decor is an interesting thing because it’s not often that we refresh our decor the same way we might do with clothes or beauty products. The only real time most people bring in new pieces for a season is around Christmas, but why not do the same for a little spring refresh? Here are a couple ways to invite spring into your home without having to change up everything!

Serena + Lily Placemat These pair perfectly with a white place setting or even blue-and-white China.

John Robshaw Flat Sheet Pop a blue-and-white flat sheet on your bed to add something new to your bedroom.

One Kings Lane Recycled Glass Vase I love any vessel that’s beachy and organic for this time of year. Fill this vase or one like it with your springiest flowers, like a white hydrangea.

Pottery Barn White Pitcher For your next dinner or lunch, set out your house drink in a gorgeous pitcher to pour into glasses right at the table. May I suggest a sweet tea or even a sangria?

One Kings Lane Art Print Changing up your wall art can make such a huge difference! I love the bold contrast in this piece of art and that it features an organic subject which seems right for spring.

Amanda Lindroth Rattan Glasses These my absolute favorite glasses and really give off that bohemian Malibu vibe by bringing more rattan into your space.

One Kings Lane Planter Swap out heavier materials for this chic, contemporary planter to hold your indoor plants or patio topiaries.

Diptyque Baies Room Spray The baies scent from Diptyque literally translates to berries, which makes it a great option for your signature spring scent.

TJ Max Gingham Pillow Another super easy way to update your space for the new season is by swapping out throw pillows on your couches, chairs, and beds. I, of course, love a subtle gingham.

How to Create a Bath Sanctuary

The best cure to a stressful day (or week/month/year/life) is almost always a visit to the spa. So, why not create one at home? 

Decorate using a calming color palette.
Choose a soft, relaxing color palette when thinking about your bathroom decor. Whites, blues, and blush pinks come to mind for me. Let this color palette be carried through all of your decor from the shower curtain to the towels and accessories. To keep things visually interesting, experiment with varying textures. For instance, selecting an all-white color scheme could mean that you have a white ruffled voile shower curtain, white marble soap dispensers, and white Egyptian cotton bath towels

Transfer your products into beautiful storage containers.
Empty products such as cotton balls and q-tips into glass apothecary jars, discarding the generic plastic bags in which they're sold. Unless the packaging is really beautiful (i.e. Aesop, Byredo, Ouai, etc.), consider transferring your soap, lotion, and shampoo into glass dispensers.  

Invest in a fluffy, monogrammed bathrobe.
I think that putting on a robe is the quickest way to feel as though you're actually at the spa. 

Gather an aromatherapy arsenal.
I recommend three types of candles for the optimal bath sanctuary. The first is an unscented pillar candle in a lantern to create relaxed low lighting. The second is a smaller candle in your favorite relaxing scent. The third is a collection of tealights to scatter around the room for added effect. For added aromatherapy benefits, use twine to tie sprigs of lavender and eucalyptus around your shower head.

Hide away your clutter.
Keep your space clutter-free by storing products in the medicine cabinet and dirty laundry in a nice basket hamper.

Stock up on beautifully packaged bath products.
Fill a basket with your favorite luxurious bath products such as oils, scrubs, salts, soaks, and mud masques

Keep things clean.
This is the most important point. You don't need luxury bath products and Egyptian cotton robes to have a relaxing bathroom. But, it is pivotal to have a fresh-smelling, clean bathroom. Splurge on a high-end cleaning product and use it often!
