In 2006*, Nina launched her full-time real estate career and quickly found herself helping her clients, who many became friends, achieve not just any lifestyle, but the lifestyle they wanted for themselves.

She continues to channel her high energy and extensive experience into understanding her client's needs and wants, and in helping them in their real estate journey.

Spring is here! The days are longer, the grass is greener, and it’s time to switch out your faux fur throws and winter scents for decor that’s lighter and brighter! You don’t have to go all out and spend a ton of money every time the season changes, but there are a few simple updates you can make to transition your space for spring!
 
1. Declutter Your Home
Decluttering and spring cleaning your space is a great way to head into spring feeling excited about your home! Spend a weekend decluttering and purging, getting rid of anything that doesn’t serve you or the space anymore. From your closet to your fridge to your pantry, a good spring clean will ensure you and your home feel refreshed! Don’t know where to start? Check out our post on our best tips for decluttering your home!
 
2. Switch Out Your Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are small accent pieces that make a big difference in your decor. While signature winter throw pillows are marked by faux fur, tartan and shades of dark velvet, spring throw pillows should be bright, pastel or lively patterned. Warm neutrals also work well! The eye is naturally drawn to accents like rugs and throw pillows, so switching them up is a great way to transition your space for spring!
 
3. Add Flowers and Greenery
Floral arrangements and greenery like plants and indoor gardens will liven up your space for spring! Not only do flowers and greenery add to the aesthetic of your home, plants are also great for enriching the air quality of your space. Not so great with keeping plants alive? Stick to easy-to-maintain plants like succulents, lavender and cactuses.
 
4 Swap for Lighter Textures and Fabrics
Wool throws, chunky knits, flannel and fleece should be stored away come springtime. They may have been necessary during winter, but bed linens and couch throws should be changed over when the warmer weather hits.
 
Your duvet cover and bed sheets should be lightweight and breathable, in a colour like soft blue, rose pink or sage green to enhance the feeling of spring! Changing up fabrics and textures also goes for throw blankets, rugs, pillows, drapes and anything else that feels heavy from winter.
 
5. Change Up Your Towels
Towels in your bathroom and kitchen that are looking tired should be switched up with the new season. Refresh any dish and bath towels that have seen better days, and change out thick towels for lighter materials or waffle cotton ones.
 
6. Invest in Lighter Scents
The scent of your home plays a major part in its overall feel. Pack away your wintery scents and add in lighter scents for spring in the form of candles, hand soaps,creams, essential oils and even your shampoo and conditioner. It’s sure to make a big difference!
 
Transitioning your space for spring is so much fun! Use these simple tips to say goodbye to winter and hello to the brighter days and warmer weather!
