Are you one of those people that still has a long list of spring cleaning chores to accomplish but just hasn't had the time (or the will) to getting them done?

These five easy steps will help you get the ball rolling and give you the push you so desperately need:

A NEUTRAL START

Having a neutral color base for your home will make it easier to introduce pops of color here and there. Just like in this dazzling Oslo home, a color palette of gray, black and white creates a perfect backdrop for the sprinkles of soft aqua and yellow they introduced in the kitchen and dining areas. The pseudo English style of the decor is the perfect complement to the industrial chic feel of the home.

WORTHY OF A CELEBRATION

To celebrate Cinco De Mayo I thought I would take you on a virtual getaway to Mexico City. And what better place to stay that at the chic and colorful Condesa DF Hotel  — located in the historic district of Condesa, hence the name. Its happy design, by interior designer India Mahdavi, merges the bohemian spirit of the neighborhood with a fresh and modern style. A vibrant turquoise blue it's quite the perfect color to set off the rich wooden and cowhide textures in the hotel's lobby and bar—where I think we would toast with a couple of margaritas to the occasion. Cheers!

CELEBRATING COLOR

One thing is for sure: the lucky owners of this vibrant home are not afraid of color. That's for sure! Without going overboard with their color treatment, these happy dwellers strategically scattered touches of bold hues to create a balanced palette. The use of wood throughout the house together with fields of black set the perfect stage for these colors to pop. It's a cheerful celebration of color. Happy weekend!

ART NOUVEAU MEETS MODERN ELEGANCE

Celebrating the building's 100th anniversary, the Parisian jewel Hotel Vernet underwent a jaw-dropping restoration by interior designer François Champsaur. The results: a wonderful combination of Art Nouveau and modern elegance. Besides its stylish new interiors, the hotel houses a magnificent glass ceiling designed by none other that Gustave Eiffel himself—a rather good reason to pay the staple hotel a visit. Happy travels!

GARDENING IN STYLE

It's time to do some serious digging with these stylish gardening tools made with the same materials used in aircraft construction and Nascar chassis. They're not just pretty but sustainable too—all leftover steel is recycled and reused to maximize materials and minimize waste. I love their beautiful and streamline design!

A TINY PAD WITH A BIG PERSONALITY

It's hard to believe this gorg and functional apartment in Moscow, Russia is only 485 square feet. I have to say the design of this studio apartment is quite brilliant. The designers took advantage of every single inch of space to incorporate much needed storage solutions. Additionally, I think that raising the bedroom area on a platform was very smart: it created separation from the living room and kitchen and also extra storage space. By the way, the use of a unifying color story throughout the apartment actually makes the home look bigger than what it is. The soft pastel palette is adorable and very fun. I have a new crush!

BUILT AROUND HISTORY AND CULTURE

Formerly a homeless shelter and a strip club, The Dean hotel is the new talk of the town in Providence, Rhode Island. Built around the history and culture of Providence, this charming 52-room boutique hotel is filled with custom furniture, craftwork from local purveyors and found objects from Europe and beyond. If you happen to be in the area, The Dean is a must place to stay in, specially if you're looking for a mellow yet friendly inn. But if you're just passing by, do stop to at least partake on some serious singing in The Boombox, Providence only karaoke lounge. Happy weekend!
