Clean Up

By now, you've probably seen Netflix's "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" - and you've identified at least a few elements in your home that "do not spark joy." While you may not care do do a total home overhaul or follow Kondo's very-precise order of things, the concept works - and we could all benefit from implementing at least a bit of it. If you found it as overwhelming as we did, start small - say, a kitchen drawer. If the items "spark joy" because of their utility, sentimentality or other "joyous" reason, make a home for it. If it doesn't, let it go with gratitude.

(Re)Paint Something

In the vein of spring cleaning, may we humbly suggest that spring upcycling become a thing, too? Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan is our fave go-to product for transforming furniture, cabinets and decor. So easy to use, with little prep work required, this is the fast fix you've been looking for. We get ours, as well as tutorials and workshops, at
Refined Vintage Boutique.

Plant Lovely Lavenders

The color combination of purples and whites, much like the scent of the lavender plant itself, is deeply calming. Consider this pairing when creating your landscape ambiance to achieve the sensation of a resort environment at home.
