A great way to incorporate flowers in your home is to get a bunch of glass milk bottles and decorate them. You can use a black twine if you want to add a rustic look to it.

6. Let light make its way to your home
Spring is all about bright lights and colors so in order to lighten up your space use thin drapes on your windows so that the sunlight illuminates your home and you save money on electricity bills.
