Spring fever. I catch this every year, without fail. The snow melts away, the sun comes out, and I am flooded with the need for change. You know the feeling - you get the sweats, a little restless, and you have this incredible need to make a big change in your life. So you start making 'plans'. You decide you're finally going to tackle that major renovation you've been putting off for years. You spend countless hours on Pinterest and Houzz researching home renovations, compiling hundreds of photos for your renovation. Then you realize that although you have all of these great photos, you don't know where to start. So you file your 'renovation folder' away and chalk it up to spring fever, deciding it's too much work to make a change.
I LOVE that feeling I get with spring fever, the feeling of anticipation for something NEW. I look forward to that feeling of meeting a new client for the first time, and learning about their home and story. I love the creative process of starting new projects - designing space plans for a new build, or just selecting furniture to spruce up an entry way!
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
At CWDesign it's our business to embrace change. This month we’re helping you transition into the season. We’re breaking down your decision to love it or list it in an education on renovation. Not ready for demo? No problem. We’re giving some design how-to advice to spruce up your kitchen backsplash for a simple change with a BIG impact.
When a season changes you can find inspiration everywhere! We're sharing where we get some inspiration from including one of our favourite design styles, as well as an artist in the UK we recently discovered.
As the snow melts, it definitely has us thinking about landscaping. Check out these pro tips from our friends at Salisbury Landscaping.
The truth is, change is inevitable. So whether you're looking for a change, big or small , I say embrace it. Give it a big ol' bear hug and make Spring 2017 your time for change!
