I'm not exactly sure who decided April was National Decorating Month, but it does seem like the perfect time of year to freshen up your home decor. After being cooped up in the house during the long, cold winter it's something we can all look forward to. Spring is the time of year we are cleaning and organizing our homes, so why not do a little redecorating while we're at it?
I am what you would call a "seasonal" decorator. I decorate my home more so for the seasons then holidays. I have fall decor that is more harvest colors, leaves, scarecrows and pumpkins (no Halloween). Then my winter decor is snowmen, snowflakes, greenery and lots of lights tucked everywhere (nothing overly Christmas other then my tree) This time of year is a little harder, all I seem to see is Easter bunnies and eggs, so it's a challenge to find accessories that just say "Spring."
I do plan on doing one big redecorating project this Spring and that's my living room. It's long over due.. I mean really long over due! The whole room needs to be repainted, new furniture, lamps, curtains and a good 'ole fashioned decluttering. I can not wait!
In honor of National Decorating Month, here on The Decorating Dork I'm going to have several posts this April to celebrate. I'll be sharing the process of my living room redo, ideas for making little changes to freshen up any decor and even a giveaway to help with your redecorating.
So, I hope you'll come back and celebrate with me.
