What’s your favorite part of spring? Is it the gorgeous weather? The fresh air? How about the lovely reminder that the dreary days of winter are coming to an end? Spring feels like a new beginning–a chance to start again. If you’re like us, you love springtime decorating. Let this new season be a fresh start for your home. There are so many ways to rejuvenate your surroundings. That blank canvas will also bring a feeling of renewed energy to your life. And, the best part is, it’s simple! Take a look at some of our ideas for springtime decorating.
#1 Start Neutral
Your springtime decorating may not usually consist of neutral colors. You probably go for bright hues or pastels. This season, one of the hottest colors is a cross between two of the design world’s favorite neutrals: Beige and Gray. It’s called “greige,” and it’s the perfect color for the start of a new season. Add a touch of contemporary design while you’re springtime decorating. Have you seen Poised Taupe? Warm, inviting, and easy to match–you will fall in love with the simplicity of this color.
#2 Flower Power
Spring brings in beautiful colors, which is great for springtime decorating. The flowers, especially, offer a certain beauty to our outdoors. Why not bring it inside? The soft pop of color offered by lilacs, tulips, and daffodils will revitalize your home. Create a centerpiece for your dining room table. Keep a small arrangement on your nightstand. Use silk flowers to craft a colorful wreath for your front door. When it comes to springtime decorating, it’s all about the refreshing hues. This year’s color of the year can bring the brilliant ‘pop’ of color you’re looking for. Take a look at how to use Greenery in your springtime decorating.
#3 Environment Control
Take a look at your windows. Are they bare? If so, your priority for springtime decorating should be to take control of your environment. Windows are a source of light, but they also can bring in too much light–meaning, your furniture is at risk of damage from the UV rays, your rooms may be filled with an uncomfortable glare (or heat as summer approaches), and you have little to no privacy. Don’t suffer through these issues. Instead, find the right window treatments. You’ll gain control over your space’s ambiance and comfort while adding designer style.
#4 De-Clutter Your Rooms
Springtime decorating means spring cleaning! It may not sound like fun, but you will feel amazing afterwards. What rooms in your home do you use the most? Start there. Take a weekend to go through your belongings, and ask yourself, “Have I used this recently? Do I absolutely need this?” If the answer is no, it’s probably safe to get rid of! Minimalist design is the “in” thing right now, so while you’re cleaning out your space, you’ll also be adding immense style.
#5 Incorporate What You Love with Springtime Decorating
You aren’t going to truly love your springtime decorating until you start incorporating the designs that you love. There are always new trends that you may or may not be drawn to. You don’t always have to keep up with the latest designs. Instead, consider the looks that you keep going back to. What are your Pinterest boards full of? What pages do you have marked in your design magazine? Use these ideas in your springtime decorating! Are you ready to get started? We’re here to help you along the way.
