With the first day of Spring less than a month away, the design-build team at Highlight Homes has been struck with a nasty case of Spring Fever. We CAN’T WAIT to open windows and let the fresh air inside, head outdoors for the first grill-out of the season, and grab our fishing gear and make for the lake. All of these thoughts of Spring bring to mind some of our favorite Spring-themed renovation projects and companies – all of which we are happy to share with you in this edition of Shades & Highlights:
Spring Cleaning – With the arrival of Spring, so follows the annual “tidy up” tradition known as Spring Cleaning. It’s a terrific time to focus on parts of the home that rarely get cleaned – such as the windows, baseboards, closets, basement, garage, well – the list goes on and on. Head over to the Container Store for organizational inspiration, stock up on earth-friendly cleaning supplies from Mrs. Meyers Clean Day, and call on the folks at Highlight Homes to conjure up some amazing storage solutions throughout your home.
Fresh Coat of Paint – Whether you are completely transforming the look of the exterior of your home with a color makeover to the siding and trim or refreshing the interior with a burst of color on an accent wall, nothing says “renewal” better than a fresh coat of paint. Check out Sherwin Williams’ Paint Color Visualizer to try a few shades on for size before calling in a painter or busting out a brush yourself.
Outdoor Oasis – When you dream of spending time in the Great Outdoors, what do you envision? If it’s a sprawling deck for countless dinner parties under the stars, a tranquil koi pond surrounded by lush landscaping, or an open-air kitchen where you can awaken your inner chef to the delight of your guests – Highlight Homes can help you make those dreams come true!
Pike Nurseries – It’s never too early to begin planning your Spring garden. As a Georgia-based company, we’re big fans of this company of nurseries that got its start in Marietta in 1958. Their staff is exceedingly helpful and their inventory never disappoints. Even their website is a treasure trove of valuable information – be sure to check out their Play in the Dirt Blog and Monthly Tips.
Check back next month for our March 2013 edition of Shades & Highlights!
