When you think of spring, what comes to mind? Colorful pastels, floral arrangements and green grass is what many think of. After a cold winter, these are welcome signs that warm weather is on its way! However, you don’t have to limit your excitement of spring just to the outdoors. Brighten up your home with colorful spring decor.
From floral patterns to springtime scents, you can have any area of your home match the change in season. See a few ideas on how you can decorate your home for spring.
Freshen Up Your Home
As the warm weather begins to approach, many of us are excited to open our windows for the first time and let the breeze in. However, you may also notice that dust has settled in many places that you didn’t intend to over the last few months. Spring is the perfect time to give your home a clean start again. Here are some items you should consider focusing on during your spring cleaning routine.
- Dust Behind Large Items
- High Windows
- Vent Covers
- Closet Organization
- Dusting Baseboards
- Tile Grout
A good spring cleaning involves paying attention to many little details. Some homeowners like to contact a cleaning pro who can use their expertise to see what needs the most cleaning and make their homes sparkle again.
Incorporate Spring Colors
It’s time to brighten up your home with the colors of the season. Out are the greens and reds of the holiday. Time to bring out the pastel yellows, purples, pinks and blues that make this time of year great.
Utilizing accessories is the best way to incorporate spring colors, so you can continue to change them as the seasons change. Decorative throw pillows, vases and other small items are sure to refresh your bedroom and living room with color. Curtains in bright floral patterns are also easy to change depending on the season.
Utilize Fresh Flowers
As the hit of the season, fresh flowers is a welcome addition to any and every room. From a large arrangement to a single flower, it’s the perfect touch. Here are some spring flowers to consider incorporating in your décor. You may even have a few about to bloom in your yard!
As the focal point of your dining room, it’s easy to change your table setting depending on the season. Spring is no exception. While many of us focus on setting our table for holiday feasts, there is still plenty of entertaining to be done during the warmer months as well. Start with a pastel table cloth and a white table runner down the middle. Even if you opt to not use table settings at the time, this is sure to brighten up your room.
The centerpiece is what will bring the look together. I love the idea of a few mix-and-match vases with one simple flower in them. One interesting idea is to use clear vases and dye the water, making for a beautiful illusion. If you’d rather have one focal point on your table, a large pitcher full of flowers will give a vintage look to your spring decor. Or, if your family celebrates Easter, you can’t go wrong with a decorative basket full of colorful eggs. The options are endless!
Spring Door Decor
Let’s not forget about your front door! Front door wreaths aren’t just limited to the winter. In fact, there are almost more options in the spring, due to the availability of fresh flowers. Hang a eucalyptus wreath with tulips for a fresh scent every time you walk into your home.
Of course, DIY door wreaths make a great weekend project. You can truly customize this project for your style. I love this idea of using patterned burlap and felt flowers for a look that will last.
To compliment your spring décor, utilize fresh and floral scents throughout your home. Lavender, lilac and rain are sure to be popular candle selections. This can be the perfect way to bring spring into rooms with more permanent décor, such as the bathroom, without changing the style completely.
Essential oils are another way to release the scents of spring into your home. Utilizing essential oils also has many benefits for your family. For example, lavender essential oil not only smells great but it has properties that can help you relax naturally. Citrus oil scents such as wild orange and lemongrass can help improve focus and remove strong odors from the air.
