When we speak of clean design, we often talk about a minimalist, fuss-free sense of style. When we speak of spring and clean, we think of an all-day, knock-em-down and drag-em-out cleaning spree. Put them together and what do you have? A two-step approach to a fresh new look at home.
Step One: Clean House
To keep you house always clean, exercise the "3 thing rule" of putting away or cleaning three things the minute you walk through the door after work. Mail, shoes, remote controls...whatever it is that's out of place. It's so effortless it'll become second nature and it produces results...fast.

Additionally, find a place for everything, as we recently mentioned in our post about how to keep the closet organized. Don't let clutter sit around, no matter how pretty it is. If it doesn't have a dedicated place, get rid of it. It's that simple.
Step Two: Clean Design
Now that your pad is sparkling, it's time to add a few clean looks. Sure, "clean" is about aesthetics, but it can also be about the environment. So for the most energy-saving, landfill de-cluttering design options available today - from modern LED desk lamp designs to versatile and stylish pendant lights - LED lighting is the new look of "clean."

Less clutter in the home. Fewer light bulbs in our landfills. Less energy used. Now that sounds like a spring cleaning plan.

Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
