10 Tips to Make Your Bedroom Look (and Smell) Fresh for Spring

Spring has *finally* arrived. And you know what that means? Along comes the irresistible urge to purge our homes of winter dust and all that clutter (AKA spring cleaning). It may seem like we just cleaned, but that’s what happens after a few Netflix binges. Since we spend a third of our lives sleeping, we think the bedroom is the perfect place to start freshening up for the new sunny season. Whether it’s a complete closet purge or simply a few bold and bright throw pillows, these 10 tips will have your bedroom spring-ready in no time.
