Homes.com Springs into the Dream

What does Spring into the Dream mean to you? Does it make you want to rejuvenate your home for the season? Or maybe it’s being out in the garden showcasing your green thumb? Perhaps it’s getting the house organized to start the new season fresh. For us it’s all of the above!

Let’s Get Organized!

Everyone dreads spring cleaning, but the benefits from the clean are wonderful (after the hard work, of course).  The hibernation that you do in winter forces you to accumulate so much stuff that you need to purge. Starting the new season organized helps you be functional for the new activities and additional family members (i.e. kiddos or visiting relatives). Whether it is kitchen storage, garage or closets, we have organizational tips to help you feel inspired in the space while also keeping it beautiful and functional.

Bring on the COLOR!

Decorating for the spring and summer months is always so much fun. The endless options of vibrant colors really liven up any space. Whether you want to incorporate the color of the year orange, or summer’s new “it” color yellow, your home (and fashion) will have new life. Go big with the spring color trends by painting your kitchen or bathroom, or include small touches with accent pieces. And don’t forget about bringing color into your home entertaining! Colorful place settings and party décor will help bring life to your gathering.

Green thumb, here I come!

Long gone are the barren yards of winter; time to update the landscaping and plant those flowers to help drive up your home’s curb appeal. You can spring into the dream with beautiful yards and entertaining outside with simple tips like basket arrangements or adjourning your walkway.  Or you can go all out by adding outdoor living spaces which will ensure your home is “the” place to go this season & increase your home’s value. Whichever way you choose, your green thumb will definitely be in high demand with the maintenance a yard requires (YAY for home ownership)!
