10 Easy ways to freshen up your home for the Summer!

It is safe to say that quarantine has taught us all one very valuable lesson: how to slow down!  Of course we have still been balancing work, school and home life but nonetheless, we have had to learn how to occupy ourselves while stuck at home. As we are transitioning into our “new normal” and trying to enjoy summertime, there are a lot of people who want to utilize this time to reset and improve their home. Below is a list of 10 simple and affordable ways to make your space feel like new again! 

1. Add Plants

There is no better way to spruce up your home than to add some greenery! Not only can you improve your outdoor space with new plant additions but add them to the inside as well for a summery and lively touch. 

2. Get to the five-minute fixer uppers you have been putting off

Southern Vintage: Where Modern and Rustic Meet

Our Broker/ Owner, Dave Parks and John Allgeier, CEO of Southern Vintage recently joined WAVE 3 Listens Live to discuss unique ways to take design, update and beautify your home. 

Southern Vintage uses rustic reclaimed wood from 100 year old barns to create unique furniture, flooring and sidings. They do this to create an unexpected combination of styles, textures, and elements recreated into something new, beautiful and timeless.

"We want to allow customers to have an experience that is not normal in our industry, and that excites us. We're passionate about it." - John Allgeier

That passion carries over into the unique design and styles that Southern Vintage offers. Some of the more unique and beautiful things that the company creates are live edge furniture pieces.

"This not only brings value but also brings history, it brings something timeless and it allows people to actually come in and add an essence to a room you cannot get unless it is reclaimed." - John Allgeier
