Springtime is right around the corner, which means warmer weather, sunny days and beautiful floral blooms. First and foremost, before starting on any home décor changes, it’s time for your home’s yearly spring cleaning! If you don’t know where to start, check out our home organizing tips. After some spring cleaning, refresh your home with the season’s signature bright pastel colors, soft floral arrangements, and fresh springtime scents.
Prints, pastels, patterns!
A simple way to lighten up your home is by swapping your heavy fabrics like wool and fur for lighter, breathable fabrics such as cotton and linen. Spring is the perfect time to bring out your favorite gingham patterns and light floral patterns. Bring a pop of color to your couch with beautiful pastel throw pillows. Let in the warm sunlight by swapping out your thick winter curtains for bright and airy curtains. Be adventurous this spring and try pretty pastel colors such as baby blue or mauve or even sheer fabrics such as voile and lace.
From the dining table to coffee table, table styling can often make or break a room. Swap out your winter coffee table books for more colorful, artistic spring covers. Create fresh spring displays with these unique springtime vases. Add some sunshine hues to your kitchen with a bowl of fresh lemons or grapefruits. Spice up your serving ware this spring with mixed metal finishes. Learn how to go beyond gold accents and incorporate copper and brass accents to your plates, utensils, and drinkware.
Bring your garden indoors
Take advantage of the season’s beautiful blooms by bringing the garden indoors. Colorful bouquets of peonies, loosestrife, and roses coupled with wildflowers are a great way to brighten up your windowsill. Opt for a simpler, laid back style with fresh spring branches of birch, dogwood, or cherry blossoms. Terrariums are another fun and easy way to bring together varying textures and colors. Add a little springtime Zen to your home with these beautifully resilient indoor plants.
Spring is a season that should be experienced with all five senses. With your springtime décor squared away, the next step is to select a refreshing fragrance to fill your home with springtime joy. Nothing smells like spring better than fresh rose petals, bright citruses, and bursts of lavender. In addition to scented candles, there are many alternative ways to fill your home with refreshing springtime aromas such as reed diffusers, electric oil warmers, wallflower plugins, and homemade potpourri.
