Are you looking to update your home decorating scheme this spring without having to spend a lot of money? Internationally known design expert, journalist and broadcast personality Kimberly Seldon shares a few of her spring home décor tips.
“Cleaning is always a sign of spring – start by washing the windows and let the sunshine in.” She adds, “To be successful at a decorating project you need to be organized and focused. Typically, when consumers want to redecorate they reach automatically for a can of paint. It’s far better to take a deep breath, slow down and create a plan. A good plan begins with editing and purging any items you no longer love.”
“Next, consider the mood or feeling you are trying to create. Then, make sure every purchase speaks to that mood or feeling. Once you’ve finished purchasing new accessories and painting the walls, consider adding a home fragrance to underscore the mood or feeling you’ve created.”
Kimberly elaborates, “Creating memorable décor is as much about the collaboration of the senses as it is about finding the perfectly matched side tables. Aim to provide a sensual experience that you’ll enjoy and your guests will remember long after their visits. The new Glade ExpressionsTm Collection features fragrances that open up note-by-note and will add a sophisticated finishing touch to any space.”
She suggests using a delicate fragrance like Glade Expressions Cotton & Italian Mandarin if you’ve created a zen, quiet space. For a more vibrant design scheme, then you’ll want a fragrance that matches that intensity like the Pineapple & Mangosteen. If you’re looking to sell your house/condo then adding a lovely scent diffuser – perhaps Lavender & Juniper Berry – will create a welcoming environment.
Glade ExpressionsTm Collection is available in the air care aisle of most food, drug and mass-merchandise stores across Canada in four fragrances:
– Pineapple & Mangosteen (Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser)
– Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice (Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser)
– Lavender & Juniper Berry (Oil Diffuser only)
– Cotton & Italian Mandarin (Fragrance Mist only)
The manufacturer suggested retail price is $4.99 for the Fragrance Mist (refills $4.19) and $8.99 for the Oil Diffuser (refills $6.49).
