Refreshing your space with florals and plants

Story by Sara Falder Photography by Amber Barnett

With the arrival of spring comes a renewed sense of freshness and energy. The days are longer and the sun is brighter. It gives us motivation to open the windows, air out our houses, and get to spring cleaning, all of which we like to call "springerize."

Our furniture, pillows, and all other home accessories often stay the same, which may leave our spaces feeling a little uninspired. So, let's talk about two simple yet beautiful things you can refresh your space with that are easy to move around, change up, and rearrange. Our two loves: fresh florals and all the plants!

Having a freshly cut bundle of florals in a vase sitting on your dining table, bedside table, or any table can instantly brighten up a room and positively affect our moods. Even research proves it!

We think it is important for you to smell, touch and pick flowers that speak to you and your decor.

Floral tips: change out water every couple of days and trim the stems on a diagonal to keep them fresher for longer.

If you've been to the shop, you know we have a love for all the greens! Not only are they good in your diet but also in your living space. Bringing green and plants inside your home has a whole ton of health benefits, like purifying your air, decreasing dust levels and removing indoor pollutants.

They can even decrease stress and fatigue, which explains why we're so chill! Above all they are super easy to maintain, especially with a fancy pants watering bulb that slowly releases water into the soil as needed.

A few of our favorites are rubber trees, fiddle figs, schefflera, all varieties of ferns, succulents, and cactuses -- all of which arrange together beautifully in vessels to fit your style. n
