Spring is on our doorstep, bringing with it a sense of rejuvenation and new beginnings. Nature takes its cue – plants start
to grow and blooms appear. It’s also a time when we often embark on a “spring clean”, clearing away clutter and making
changes for the better. It’s a wonderful time to renew and refresh our homes, wardrobes and habits.
Spruce up your home
Green in so in right now. Pot plants and vertical gardens bring life to our homes, and vibrant colours such as yellows or
corals create bold and beautiful living spaces. Don’t be shy to combine different textures such as wool, leather, metallic
and natural woods to complete the look.
To get your home décor on trend, the latest lighting, furniture and decorations from @Home are the answer. Their wide
range of expertly crafted botanicals will also ensure that your home overflows with greenery and you will need no effort
to keep them looking perfect every day!
You can bring the beauty of nature inside with fresh flowers from Constantia Florist, Woolworths, Pick ‘n Pay or Spar,
or add a touch of nature to you home with the beautiful new designs from Lelapin pottery at Linen & Glass. Featuring
the protea in the design, it will be a talking point and a worthy addition to your “greenery”.
The new gentle green sage collection from le Crueset is simply irresistible. The colour matches perfectly with other
shades, and to celebrate, Le Creuset is offering promotions on selected cookware including casseroles, mugs and
dinnerware from 19 August – 29 September 2019.
And remember, for any tools or DIY material, Constantia Hardware is the place to go – they have everything to ensure
that your home is spic ‘n span.
Spring clean your wardrobe
This is the perfect time to get rid of clutter in your wardrobe, and create space for something new. We often hold onto
garments for sentimental reasons, or because we believe that we will wear them one day again. If you haven’t worn it
in the past six months, it’s highly unlikely you ever will do so. So gather a girlfriend or two, sit them down and let them
help you with your spring clean. And you can return the favour for them.
We have partnered with U-Turn Homeless Ministries to donate all old unwanted clothing. Donation bins have been
placed around the centre, and all you have to do is pop your unwanted clothing into one of these bins, and we will do
Turn your unwanted items into something of great value for someone else. Pay it forward.
