Spring into spring the bohemian way!
Little things you can do to help bring positive boho living vibes your way.
At JadeCrate, when we talk about positive vibes, especially positive, boho living vibes, sometimes all you need is a quick cleaning and re-organization of a space. Springtime is perfect for decluttering and reconfiguring living areas.
I know, cleaning, the bad word for some of us, which means, something unfun, unless you make it fun. I see it as an opportunity to rejuvenate. Pick a spot, just one eye-sore in your home to be scrubbed and re-organized. The area could be your office, a hallway or entrance, even your desk, just pick an area.
Remove everything you can, wipe down surface area, floors. If you are going for a full room scrub down, remember to wipe down ceiling lights and/or fans.
The fun part of cleaning is the chance to create that boho living space just for you. Before moving everything back, ask yourself “how else can I re-tool this space to make it brighter, happier, and maybe even repurpose it into a niche area for my time?” If you start realizing, you have more stuff in the removal pile than what you want to return to the newly cleaned space, maybe it’s time to give that space a breather and keep it fresh, with clear clutter free areas. If you have a box of clutter when you have set up your space, consider donating it to charity.
When planning to rearrange and change your space or room, great boho vibe additions include house plants, colorful pillows or pillow covers, throw rugs, any décor fashioned to create the mood you want to create for your space. Do a walk around your home to see if you already have items to redecorate this newly cleaned space.
In my case, I found a runner in another area of my home that I found was better suited my studio space. In the dining area, I rediscovered two hand painted wood serving bowls from India, which belonged on a shelf on display rather than in a cabinet. I also took a walk outside to see what plants I could possibly bring in for some vibrant natural color and ended up with a few succulent plants. All these changes cost little more than a dose of hard work and a few cups of coffee for motivation.
I also discovered a homemade cleaner that really cleans up window grime as well as glass. This glass cleaner worked excellent on the windows inside and outside. Cleaning recipe provided by www.thespruce.com. *They did mention to be careful not to use on reactive surfaces.*
