Though winter stretched on longer than it was welcome , there's no denying that spring is in the air these days. One of the best things about the warmer weather is that it will finally give you the chance to open up your windows and let in a little fresh air. But when you go to do this, you might notice that your window treatments are badly in need of a little spring cleaning.
After months of hanging in your windows without the benefit of any fresh air, your curtains and drapes may have become a little worn. If you can, this is a great time to wash your window treatments to get them ready for another season of use. But you might also realize that they're not as seasonally-appropriate as you would like them to be.
Rather then putting these back up, why not wash your drapes and store them for the summer? That way, you can replace them with something a little brighter and more cheerful for the time being. Right now, pastels are having a moment in fashion as so many people are thrilled with the idea of their brightness, which is a signature of springtime.
When used well, these cheerful hues don't have to seem like something that the Easter Bunny brought into your living room, but rather can project a much more sophisticated feeling.
If you're picking out pastel curtains, the fabric you choose can help to solidify them as an adult design choice. Elegant linen drapes, for instance, will look perfect no matter what color you choose and come in a number of beautiful pastel pigments that would be ideal for any home.
Why not celebrate the arrival of spring in your house? This is a great time to add cheerful decor to your house in one simple step.
