Getting prepped for Spring

We are getting ready for Spring and Summer here at the HCD offices. The weather's warm, the sun's out, and everything seems just a bit brighter. Here are our fun tips for springing out your life!

Bring in the outdoors with seasonal flowers and citrus

It's Spring so everything is becoming more vibrant - the flowers that are in bloom and the produce that is in season. Incorporate some spring blooms (like cherry blossoms, tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils) or seasonal citrus into your decorating.  Even just bringing in some greenery can help increase the Springtime feels you are striving for. 

Spring/Summer Fashion

Reinforcing what is already apparent in nature, the Spring fashion trends are following suit. Bright colors are everywhere (especially pinks) and you can spot head-to-toe floral outfits everywhere.

Refreshing Your Indoor Space

Get some new vibes going in your house by updating your pillows or refreshing your bedding. Try going lighter with some of these updates, fresh white linens and bright airy pillows add a relaxing, refreshing pop to any space!

Also don't be afraid to get moving, it's called Spring Cleaning for a reason. Getting rid of unwanted items can help thing feel minimalist and fresh. Even rearranging your furniture to give you a fresh perspective can help.

Start Thinking About Your Outdoor Space

Get your patio or balcony ready for the warm weather that's to come. Add some lights - string lights are always a great idea, but for something a little less permanent and cozy you could bring out candles. Mix your patterns and textures. Bring some pieces typically found indoors outside, like an outdoor rug or outdoor pillows. Rattan is another great material that can go in or out and adding some plants if you live in an urban environment can help finish the space. Above all make sure there's a comfy place that you want to actually spend time in.

Here are a few places that we like to use as outdoor sources and inspiration:
