Spring is traditionally a time associated with the new and refreshed. Spring cleaning is the first item that comes to mind for many, but the season is also a great time to refresh your home décor.
Below are five easy ways to refresh your home and welcome the new season.
1. Refresh Your Wall Art
For one of the quickest and easiest ways to change the feel of a room, swap out the artwork.
Consider updating both the picture and the frame to truly create a new spring mood. Replace heavy, dark frames with lattice frames or metallics, popular trends this year according to Martha Stewart. For artwork, prints of flowers in pastel shades or outdoor scenes are a great way to bring the springtime feeling inside. Bonus points for integrating fresh-pressed local flowers into your artwork.
2. Switch Your Bedding
Bedrooms are some of the most comfortable rooms in the house and a prime place to set the mood for your day. Other than the obvious need to switch out bedding to be a lighter weight to coincide with warmer temperatures, spring is a great time to refresh the space.
Upgrading duvet covers/bed spreads, pillowcases, bed skirts and other elements can have the desired effect. Opt for lighter, solid colors for large pieces and then integrate colorful accents with pillowcases and pillows. Standard spring colors such as light blue and yellow are always popular, but according to color trend watcher Pantone, lighter shades of greens and brown are also hot colors this spring.
3. Don’t Forget the Floors
Spring means the beginning of warmer weather and more time spent outdoors. With more traffic happening inside and outside the house, don’t forget about floor coverings when completing your spring update.
Discard any heavy, dark rugs to freshen your space from the ground up. Sisal and hooked cotton rugs are a great addition for porch and hallway areas and provide the option to add splashes or pops of colors in otherwise neutral spaces.
Rugs and other floor coverings are also an excellent way to carry colors and styles between rooms, allowing you to create a cohesive look through multiple spaces.
4. Add in Colorful Accents
Something about the warm spring weather bodes well for playful accessories in a home space. To ensure your entire home is spring ready, add pops of colorf throughout the entire house with unique pieces. Vintage vases and trays, big and comfy pillows, metallic pieces, and rustic chic elements are easy upgrades to any room.
For a more extreme makeover, a gallon of paint can go a long way toward brightening up a room. Choose pastel and citrus colors to remain firmly on-trend with a spring motif. If painting is too extreme of a commitment, window treatments in new colors provide the same look while offering the convenience of change later on.
5. Fill Your House with Greens
The best way to celebrate spring is by bringing a few fresh plants indoors to breathe some life into a room. Succulents have become popular recently due to ease of care, and their shades of grays and purples also make them the perfect springtime plant. You can experiment with other houseplants, too, or even fresh flower arrangements.
Use a mini table top to create an attractive greenspace with the plants of your choice. Group together plants that have similar light and water schedules, but make the display interesting by using plants of different textures.
