1. Green up your space


Purchase some plants and watch your apartment come to life! Before you buy, be sure you know which plants like light, which plants need water, and which ones would rather be left alone...check out this resource for more! Try a local nursery like City Floral Garden Center or Planted.

3. Organize your pantry

Give your kitchen the facelift it deserves! By purchasing food items in bulk in and placing them in glass jars you can elevate your space and also help out Mother Earth by reducing waste.

4. Lighten and brighten up your bedding

Opt for ethereal bedding! Picking simple pieces can really wake up your space and make it feel ready for spring. Can't live without pattern and color? We recommend a fun accent pillow or throw blanket!
