Bring On Spring With A Cowhide Rug

Spring is just around the corner - which is a HUGE relief to the many people affected by the harsh winter storms this winter. It soon will be time to open up those blinds and let the sun shine through! One way to celebrate the beautiful weather headed our way is to decorate your home for spring.

We all know that at the beginning of spring, we feel the need to do that yearly spring cleaning. But, did you know that spring is a perfect time to revitalize and update your home as well? It’s the perfect time to take down those heavy curtains and bring in some color for the warmer season. This all can be done without doing an “extreme home makeover” and without breaking the bank by just applying a few simple rules:

Get rid of the Heavy Linens - Pack away those heavy electric blankets and replace with light and airy fabrics, like cotton. Get rid of the "dark and cozy" and bring in the "light and airy". You’ll love what a difference it makes.

Choose Light Colors - Get rid of those dark, depressing colors and bring in some fresh color to lighten the room and soothe the soul. Painting a room or even adding an accent wall is an easy way to change a room on a tight budget. Shades of greens, blues, purples and even radiant golds are great for walls, comforters, curtains and slip covers.

Use Throw Rugs - One of the easiest and most fun ways to update your home is to change out your rugs. While some rugs are meant to bring warmth during the winter, spring brings out the character of your house. TIP: If you've got dark wood floors or dark flooring - Rawhide Company has several beautiful light colored cowhide rugs that would be a beautiful accent to easily lighten up an otherwise dark space!

Accessorize, Accessorize - Think about finding some new, inexpensive accents to accessorize your home. Find things that scream spring! Make a beautiful vase of fresh cut flowers your new centerpiece. Everybody loves daisies and daffodils not to mention, the fragrance they bring to your home. Don’t forget the throw pillows. They are definitely a great way to give a boring, old sofa and chair a new, edgy look. There are truly some beautiful natural cowhide pillows at Rawhide Company - in all colors.

Switch It Up - One of the biggest ways to get a new look is to move your furniture around. Everyone will wonder if you bought new furniture and you will be amazed at how different your house will look!

Bring the Outside In - Open the windows and breathe in the fresh air! Bring nature inside with potted plants and flowers and place them in places where you spend time daily. This will brighten the room and your mood.

Remember, small changes can make a dramatic difference in the personality of a room. By now you should be eyeing your home and coming up with great ideas of your own. Greet the new season with fun, bright colors and don’t be afraid to 'color outside the lines'!
