Spring is finally here, and we all know what's next. That's right, SPRING CLEANING! We all know how stressful that can be, so I'm here to give you some ideas on how to make it fun. First, make a plan - think about how you want to (re)decorate, make a list about all the things you're willing to finally say goodbye to, and finally, prepare a BIG bag for all the things you completely forgot about. When that's done, you can treat yourself with a new item that will make your house scream "Summer, I am ready for you!". That can either be a piece of furniture (a new chair, for instance), if you like art you could maybe get a little statue for your desk, perhaps even a lovely vase to brighten up the kitchen, or even some cool DIY stuff you can create with your friends or/and family. Basically whatever you like, just make it something that will keep you motivated!
My motivation were these beautiful wooden hexagon boxes I got at Smile Concept Store. I was checking them out at the shop for ages, so now really seemed like the perfect time to finally give them a home. There's a little magnet on every corner, an as it turns out that isn't only a super cool closing design, but also a great hack to stash your paperclips and other desk gadgets! Another thing I love about them is the smell. Every time I open one up I smell nature, and that is just about the best thing you can smell in a big city full of concrete and public transport. The lids are painted white, but the lower part is wooden, which gives them a soft touch despite their raw geometric shape. To conclude, these boxes are the perfect and extremely useful home decoration, and also they are perfect for a present!
You can shop the boxes and the notebook online:
Or just drop by the Smile Concept Store in the city center of Ljubljana!
Enjoy your spring cleaning guys, and send me pictures of all the pretty stuff you got!
