Carol Collins, WFCP, Expert

Yes, it’s time! Spring is in the air, and now is the time to start thinking about “spring cleaning.” We all have the connotation of spring cleaning as cleaning the closets, sweeping the cobwebs away and washing the windows, to name a few. Speaking of windows! Once the windows are washed, what better time to dress them up with beautifully designed custom draperies? When we move into our new homes, many of us put in blinds, shades or shutters for privacy. Think about what a pleasing difference draperies designed just for you would make. Simple panels add warmth and flair. Just as jewelry brings your special dress to life, trimmings and tassels can do the same for draperies. For more formality add a styled valance or cornice as the crowning touch.

Spring cleaning the bed can be as simple as adding colorful, decorative pillows or replacing the entire ensemble with a new comforter, bedskirt, shams and the decorative pillows.

In the kitchen you might think about recovering the chair seats in a festive fabric or adding cheerful, plush cushions.

Does spring cleaning overwhelm you? Do you need help making those decisions about adding draperies or upholstery or even rearranging your bookshelf to help them look new and fresh?
