Spring Into Decorating!
Spring has sprung! It’s time to bring the gorgeous flowers and beautiful foliage you see outside your home at this time of year into your home to brighten it! Add flowers, patterns, and eye-catching accessories with pretty pastels, floral prints, and botanical patterns to make your home look like spring!
In fact, there’s no better time to spruce up your home’s interior than spring. More than just spring cleaning, this time of year is the time to refresh your home. Bring in flowers and unexpected color schemes to showcase your creativity and love of all things natural. Here are some ways to bring spring indoors:
Flowers make everyone smile, so add some seasonal blooms to your interior to feel an immediate uplift! Fresh tulips from your garden (or the corner market) loosely arranged in a vase or mason jar will compliment any interior and make the colors pop. Or, place flowers in terracotta pots around your home to signal the arrival of spring. Fresh cut flowers are perfect for your table setting, too. Use different flowers and different containers, pairing them with natural linens to really usher in spring. These flowers are a great way to add vibrant color and a sweet scent to your home.
Redo your home’s colors by choosing shades that echo those of springtime flowers and plants. Choose colors to compliment and highlight the furniture in your home. One way to work in these colors is to repaint the woodwork on your dining room chairs, a dresser, or armoire. Choose pastel, tonal hues that work well together and reflect the season.
One of the easiest, and most affordable, ways to freshen up your home this spring is to add patterned accessories. Choose new cushions for your couch or dining room chairs, change your bedding, or even change the countertop accessories in your kitchen—think vintage crockery to hold utensils or staples like flour and sugar. Floral designs against a pale backdrop are eye-catching; and new wallpapers patterns or fabrics will brighten up a room, too. Choose spring patterns like blooms, trailing botanicals, gingham checks or stripes, in pastels, neutrals or bright shades.
Accent your Foyer:
In the spring, adding colorful plants or fresh flowers to your foyer makes an impression. It not only greets the spring but greets guests with a touch of spring. Add accessories like vases, bowls, trays or even a new floormat or runner to complement the colors of your spring flowers.
Speaking of rugs or runners, accessorize your home with new rugs that incorporate spring’s colors. Choose blues, greens, and yellows to create a base to build on the colors of the season.
And don’t be afraid to mix patterns this spring. Floral prints, leafy patterns, checks, and stripes all make a statement. Mix complementary colors and patterns to add interest and depth.
This spring, spruce up your home with more than just a cleaning! Add color, flowers, and patterns to make your home pop!
