Bring spring and style into your home with this fun (and totally easy) DIY project!
When we think of spring cleaning we usually think of packing away clothes and washing the floors. Don’t forget to clean what’s behind your pantry door too! Get yours in tip top shape for the season with these great tips
1 – Start from scratch. Pull all of the items in the pantry out and put them on your counter so you can vacuum the floor and clean the shelves.
2 – Take inventory. See how many items you have, what can be donated, what is expired and decide which items are going to stay.
3 – Reorganize your shelves. Decide what is going where and stick to it. Put the kids snacks on the bottom shelf and the canned goods above. When you’re looking for what you need you’ll know exactly which shelf to go to.
4 – Consider using some baskets or plaster containers to help with your organization. If you buy snacks in bulk you can save space by emptying and recycling the large boxes and keep your snacks in a basket instead.
5 – Stick to it! Don’t let your hard work get ruined the next time you go grocery shopping. Keep your pantry in tip top shape by following these steps every couple of months.

Spring is finally here! Adding pops of spring color to your home doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. Try on (or all) of these five, easy changes to make your space feel lighter and brighter!
1 – Change your couch pillows to new, spring pillows! This doesn’t have to be expensive. Instead of buying a whole new pillow, buy new pillow covers. You can find great spring pillow covers online at store like amazon.com. Cover your existing pillows for a quick and beautiful update.
2- While you’re switching out your pillows, try changing your throw rugs too. If your couch pillows have a bright-colored detail in them, try adding a throw rug to your room with the same color to match.
3- Flowers can make any room feel like spring! Add fresh blooms to your living spaces for a pop of color and the scent of the new season.
4- Switch our your linens. Try changing your hand and bath towels to a brighter spring color to give your bathroom a quick fix.
5- Change your artwork. If you have wall hangings, try adding a new print to your frames. You can purchase spring prints on etsy.com and print them yourself at a local print shop.

Mother Nature doesn’t want us to have our spring just yet! If you’re thinking about starting your spring cleaning this weekend though, you may be in need of extra storage. Packing away winter clothing, coats and boots can take up a lot of space. Keep reading to find five great apartment storage ideas to try.
1- Utilize the space under your bed. If you have plastic storage containers that fit, try packing your winter clothes in those. Bonus tip – add a couple dryer sheets to the bins to keep your clothes smelling fresh until you need them again!
2 – Try over-the-door shoe organizers. These can free up a lot of space on the floor in your bedroom closet for extra storage space.
3 – Get some furniture that doubles as storage. Store your blankets and flannel sheets in an ottoman in the living room. Use a TV stand that doubles as a storage chest to increase your space.
4 – Free up space in your bathroom storage closet by adding an over-the-toilet rack/shelf. Keep your toiletries and towels here to make more space elsewhere.
5 – Check your closets and start cleaning. You’d be surprised how much space you can make in your home just by reorganizing. Toss items that you don’t need and rework your space by adding containers and baskets for extra storage.

Hosting a dinner party this weekend? Before you pull out the plates and flatware, keep reading to find our tips for setting the perfect dinner table for guests…
- Use a table covering of some sort (one that fits the theme of the night.) A tablecloth or table runner adds a beautiful touch to a standard dining table. Don’t have a table runner? A roll of brown craft paper can give a fun DIY touch to your table.
- Fill a glass water pitcher with cold water earlier in the day and pull it out to place on the table at dinner time. That way guests can refill their glass as needed.
- Try a fun napkin fold for the event! Watch this video here for some folding inspiration.
- Add the decor. Head to the local supermarket and get some fresh flowers to add to the table. Use small LED candles on the table as well to give your dinner a warm ambiance.
- Don’t forget about dessert! Save room on the table (and time) by plating your desserts ahead of time and keeping them in the kitchen. You can serve with coffee right after the meal.

We’re in the middle of winter and who doesn’t like feeling cozy inside when it’s cold and wet outside? You don’t need an interior designer to make your apartment have a cozier feel. Try following these 5 simple steps before you curl up at home to relax.
- Have lots of soft throw blankets in your living room. Store them in baskets or on a blanket ladder for a decorative touch.
- Use soft lighting. Instead of turning on overhead lights, turn on a table lamp or use flameless LED candles to give your home a soft glow.
- Switch to slippers right when you get home. Leave your slippers by the front door so you can slip right into them and take off your snow boots without tracking in any snow.
- Decorate with warm colors. Earth tones have a cozier feel than bright, bold colors.
- Designate a spot in your home that is comfortable to curl up. Whether it’s a comfortable chair or spot on the couch, make sure you have a soft place to unwind after a long day.
