It’s April. Sunlight warms your winter-weary yard and shines through your home’s windows; spring is here. Soon, this welcome sunshine will beckon you to declutter, clean and maintain your home so that it is ready for a carefree summer. A good first step is to organize and upgrade your cleaning tools: buy a new broom, and a fresh bottle of cleaner, new gloves. Next, to help with the decluttering process, set aside two large boxes; labeled donate and sell. Below is an April home checklist, to assist you in the task of preparing your home for warmer weather.
Spring is here. The daffodils and crocuses are popping through the muddy, frozen ground, the redbuds are radiating from their branches, and the bright morning sun and the sounds of songbirds are slipping through your windows; awakening you to a new day. As springtime washes over the landscape with a rainbow of colors, consider reviving and refreshing your indoor space by sprinkling pops of color throughout your home. A few hints to consider when adding a splash of springtime to your decor are to follow the 6:3:1 rule; room color accents should be only 10 percent of the room’s color. Use fresh, uplifting spring colors, such as rose, pinks, lilac, light blues and green and buttercup; and, flow the colors from room to room. Also, use items that are easy, replaceable, and ideally inexpensive.
Below are five tips for using springtime pops of color to freshen up your home decor:

March (or spring) break vacations should be a time for relaxing, recreation and rejuvenating. A time to get away from the stress of day to day work and school and have fun, positive family time. Traditionally a vacation involves traveling away from home, which can be exciting but also exhausting and expensive. An alternative to all the tedious planning and packing is a March Break Staycation: a vacation spent at home taking day trips to local attractions. Fortunately, if you live in or near Woodbridge, Newmarket or Bowmanville Ontario, there are many wonderful activities, events and adventures to fill your staycation week, regardless of your age and interests.
