The new year may have started in January but nothing has quite the sense of renewal like spring’s first bloom. Let’s start afresh with a good spring cleaning and new outlook on our surroundings. Every day through March 27, we’ll feature a Krrb corner with great furniture and decor to help freshen up your home. So why not sell everything and start again with these finds.

You can always count on RetroActive for fantastic mid-century finds. The Chicago-based shop, owned by Jennifer Sowinski, is known for carrying handsome, sturdy pieces of the 1950s era icons like McCobb and Kent Coffey. With its simple lines, one of these pieces in your home will make everything feel sleek and clean.

Hi Jennifer! Tell us what your number one priority is for this year’s spring cleaning.
It is a renovation on the bathroom. I want white white walls and bright orange accents.

Sounds invigorating! What’s a must on your playlist for doing housework?
The album ‘Music for Egon Schiele’ by the Rachel’s. It’s clean, focused music to bid farewell to winter…

That should get the job done! Is there anything you won’t get rid of during your seasonal purge?
I will never get rid of good fabrics and clothing that can be sewn into something else.
