ready for some spring cleaning?

What began as a necessary chore—since most homes were heated by the burning of coal which coated everything with soot—spring cleaning is a right of passage. That we survived another winter.

The goal is clean and minimal—even if you have hundreds of books and a large but curated and alphabetized collection of LPs.

Step one: sort. What can be donated or tossed?

Step two: once you know what’s staying and needs to be stored properly, research options.

Step three: color code. Red, hot. Carbon grey or white, definitely cooler and a lower priority.

hint: two words…multi, functional. Think outside the box and get creative with credenzas, boxes and bins. A high-dining table can be great as a work surface, a mini-bar can work great in an entryway, and a side table can definitely move into a bedroom as a nightstand.
