Ok Ok… I was a little apprehensive about posting this one because I get it, we all know how to fold towels. But maybe your towels need a mini makeover? And guess what!? It’s FREE.

HOW TO BRING SPRING INTO YOUR HOME!
Here are some tips and tricks I learned from Jill Fraser at her Urban barn Workshop the other night.
Bringing colour into your bedroom can be as easy as changing your throw pillows. Jill was showing us how to use Euro Shams BEHIND your sleeping pillows. That way you get a pop of colour just above your neutral every day pillows. She suggested two Euro Shams for a Double or Queen bed but to use three for a King.
Of course, your side table can come to life with a few subtle changes. Fake flowers are always great for any side table. Personalized touches like picture frames, your favourite books or even candles with your favourite scents can add a lot of character to your room.
My favourite rule of thumb:
Always decorate in threes! This is the best rule to remember when you’re placing items around your house.
The Living Room
With this living room Jill has really brought the outside in. She chose to use whites, creams, greens and greys to pull this look together. I LOVE all the greenery behind the couch. This is actually a look I’d love to replicate in my home. The tall green light behind the couch would be GREAT in between two rooms because it’s got detail all the way to the floor.
I love love LOVE this pillow combination. Who doesn’t love a good palm tree print?
The Bedroom (Take two)
Looking to bring a little bit of colour into your bedroom? Green is a great colour to incorporate. It’s not too bold but it’s a fantastic way to liven things up for Spring! I love these pillows against the white bed and I really like the greenery on the tray at the end of the bed. Imagine this in your guest bedroom?
I wasn’t planning on buying anything but you know me… ‘Miss Decor’. I ended up picking up some super cute baskets, an adorable fake plant (so many places for this thing!!!), beautiful candle holders and a romilly decor ball. Can’t wait to start decorating for spring!
Be sure to leave your favourite tips and tricks for bringing Spring Into Your Home in the comments below. I’d love to hear what you have to share.

My bestie is an Urban Barn- aholic. It’s her favourite store. Actually, she goes there so often all the store associates know her lol. Anyways, they were hosting this ‘Workshop’ the other night and she asked me to join. Of course I said COUNT ME IN!
Jill Fraser was the special guest. She’s an Interior Designer from Hamiton-Burlington and she was showing everyone
How To Decorate For Spring!
The Living Room
The first room we walked through was the living room. Jill was saying that Orange is a GREAT colour this year. Navy blue is always a great neutral colour but I loved this combination. Not only will you find the colour on the pillows and throw blankets but on the coffee table as well.
I love this tray of votives and the pop of colour they bring to the table. The frame is such an interesting idea as well. To tell you the truth, I’ve never thought to put a picture frame on my coffee table but I love the idea!
Right when you walk into the home this is the first thing everyone will see. Set the tone for your house by adding a splash of colour in the entry way. Jill chose the navy and orange combination and decided to repeat this throughout the house.
She kept saying: ‘Make sure your home is true to you. Add your personal touches!’ That could be a cute quote, pictures of your family or even a piece that you love like the mermaid on this table.
Check back next Tomorrow for Part Two! Jill uses whites, greens and blues to create more of a neutral spring look. Also, find out what goodies I picked up.
