Indulge Your Senses this Spring in Apex
Spring is officially in the air. Watch the snow melt and smell the flowers bloom. Feel the fresh grass with your toes and hear the birds chirp. Taste the fresh air as you breathe it in. It is a great time of year to move to Apex. If you are anything like your Apex movers, you can’t get enough of it. Bring spring into your home, so your senses can indulge in the season all day long.
See. Spring is beautiful. There are so many colors in bloom outside that your eyes were deprived of for months. If you can’t help but to bring those vibrant colors into your home, there are plenty of ways to do so. Decorate your mantle or the centerpiece of your dining or breakfast table with fresh, local flowers. Tulips, daisies, and irises will all add the burst of color you are looking for. You can also add some brightly colored throw pillows to your couch to mix things up too. To add a pop to your dining room, find some bright place settings or napkins to tie everything together.
Smell. If you are satisfied with the smell of flowers or fresh air, great! But if you want your home to have a more intense spring aroma, there are plenty of ways to achieve this. Your stove is a great resource. Simmer a combination of ingredients that bring spring to mind. If you are not quite sure, try sliced lemons, rosemary and lavender oil. Lime, coconut oil, and vanilla extract also work nicely. Once these scents simmer together for about five minutes, place them in a bowl and add a pinch of baking soda to make the scent last. You can also add citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and limes to small glass mason jars with a bit of water and some mint leaves. Place them around your home to ensure that each room elicits the fresh smell of spring.
Touch. Change the textures in your home. Opt for a lace or lightweight cotton table cloth for your dining room. This will lighten the feel of the room, all through a simple textural change. Remove those heavy winter blankets from the family room and replace them with some simple throws that are soft to the touch.
Hear. Open your windows! Not only will this circulate some fresh Apex air around your home, but you will be able to hear the birds chirping and your children playing outside. You can also hang a wind chime from a tree in your yard to add some extra tranquility.
Taste. Out with the hot beverages and in with refreshing drinks! Swap hot cocoa for mint or chamomile teas. If you prefer a cool drink, make some homemade lemonade; your kids will love it! It is also that time of year to enjoy crisp, fresh fruits and veggies. Toss up some fresh spinach salads and have fresh fruits, veggies, and dip ready for your family to snack on.
Apex in the spring is a truly special time, so make sure to make the most of it. There are so many ways to enjoy this season, so find what makes your household the happiest!
