I've started in the living room by taking out the flannel, wool and fur items and brought in some spring accents. A wonderful way to add a touch of spring and freshness to a room can be done by adding soft fabrics and lighter delicate colors. All of this can be done without spending a lot of money. You can even rearrange the furniture for a new fresh look.
The first thing I did in the living room was to replace the snowflake/winter pillows with cozy soft spring pillows.
The nest pillow I made a few years ago was placed in the basket of blankets.
