I don’t know about you, but I’m officially done with all this snow and I’m SO ready for Spring! One of the ways I get ready is to do a little spring cleaning, and then add in a few new pieces to officially welcome in the warmer weather. (Click here to see all the spring decor ideas I’ve been pinning on Pinterest!)
Cincy Chic just had an event at A Village Gift Shop in Glendale, which is also home to Agricola Redesign. At the event, the owner, Diane Agricola, gave me some great tips and tricks, too. She said spring colors is always her go-to way to add spring to her step at home (she actually just wrote this article about how to incorporate the Pantone color of the year, emerald green).
Her shop also has some unique table runners, which are great for switching up the look of a room without a lot of fuss. I especially loved the cutting boards and bottle toppers that are slate that you can write on with chalk — how great would that be at a dinner party? Also great for a party are the paper runner and place mats that they had at our recent event (pictured above!) that gives you the look of a runner and place mats, without the worry of washing them!
And of course, April showers bring May flowers, so floral arrangements are a natural (literally) way to bring spring into your home! That can be through actual flowers or all the fun floral prints coming out on fabrics and accessories now. I pinned a ton of great floral arrangement and door wreath ideas here.
I told Diane I would be doing this blog, and she was so excited (love her!). She even said she’d like to offer a $50 discount on an in-home design consultation if you mention this blog. And don’t worry… she’s not one of those overpriced designers. One of the things that’s great about her is that she likes to use items that you already have in your home, but repurpose them or “re-think” them that you wouldn’t have otherwise. It just sometimes helps to get a fresh perspective to help give you new ideas! I definitely recommend giving her a call! Here’s her #: 513.771.3927
