Let Spring In! Part I

A breath of fresh air – that’s what spring feels like to me.  After months & months (& months – I am in Maine, after all) of being housebound & looking at snowbanks taller than me, it’s invigorating to finally see COLOR.  Right now, I can look out the office window & actually see the teeniest green buds on some bushes in the parking lot.  Dreamy!

With all of this new life about to bloom, I’ve got one thing on my mind: SPRING CLEANING. Time to throw open the windows & let the house breathe!  Time to organize! Declutter! Purge! While every room could benefit from a top-to-bottom scrubbing, I’m going to focus on the bedroom.  There is just nothing as soothing as sleeping in a freshly cleaned & organized room.

I’m no organizer by trade, so I thought it best to look to the professionals about how to get such a daunting job done.  This list is actually from the blog archives, but I think it still applies.  I’ve always found that it’s a good idea to have a map for doing such a big cleaning job.

Once you’ve completed all of the grunt work of dusting, vacuuming, & Versailles Toile Voilepurging, it’s time to put it all back together, hopefully in a neat & tidy package.  When redressing your bed, think about warm-weather fabrics like seersucker or Italian linen. Voile, too, is perfect for warm weather sleeping & is especially appreciated by those who sleep hot.  As an added bonus, voile is so elegant that it can add a sophisticated note to any room.

But it doesn’t end there!  Next up: comforters & pillows – tune in next week for some helpful hints.
