From the Home editor: Looking for ways to refresh your home? This issue is packed with ideas | Home-spring-2024

The moment our Christmas tree comes down, there are two things I want to do — run the vacuum and buy fresh flowers. Without all the fluff of the holidays, our house feels barren and — if I am being honest — a bit depressing. But those flowers do the trick every time. That, my friends, is the power of design. Whether it is a cheerful grouping of fresh flowers, new pillows or even fresh bedding, these elements of design can lift our moods and give our home a fresh look. 

Now that spring is in full swing, you too may be looking for ways to refresh your home, and this issue is packed with ideas.
