With winter holidays long over, most people are looking forward to spring and warmer weather. And as the flowers bloom and trees start to regain their green colors, it’s time to freshen up your home as well. Therefore, if you could use some inspiration, here are some spring decorating ideas you should consider.
Reframe your art
A great way to freshen up your walls is to reframe your art. For example, if you’re looking for something elegant, you can find many interesting gold or silver frames. Or, you can opt for frames in more vibrant colors, to match the season. Either way, it would instantly add character to the room, and the framed photos could serve as stylish focal points too.
Add a grassy centerpiece
Color trends tend to change, but you can never go wrong with green when it’s spring. Therefore, you can add some tranquility to your dining room by introducing a grassy centerpiece. To spice it up a bit, you can add some edible greens to the piece as well, like lemongrass, for example. It might seem like an unusual decoration since it doesn’t include any flowers, but having grass alone might add to the sense of tranquility in the room.
Fill your vase with floral branches
Forget about faux floral arrangements, and opt for something fresher and more unique. Filling a vase with floral branches is a great way to welcome spring into your home. Also, it provides your home with a subtle pop of color. All you need is a nice vase and some tall, flowering branches. Moreover, if you’re feeling extra creative, you can make your own flowering branches with twigs and multicolored pom-poms or paper-made flowers. They are perfect for a room that is decorated in a bit more whimsical style.
Upgrade the textiles
During winter, you’ve probably had your living room decorated with knitted throws and cozy pillows. However, spring calls for something lighter and brighter. So, put your furs, knits, and other heavy textiles away. Instead, opt for light-weight fabrics, such as cotton or linen. Moreover, if you want to go the extra mile, you can replace your rug as well. There are many gorgeous Turkish rugs that would fit the season perfectly and make your living room more stylish. Also, don’t forget to change the window curtains, and maybe even upgrade the bathroom towels.
Hang a nice wreath
Your door is the entrance to your home, which means that it’s the first thing your visitors will notice. So, make sure to leave a good impression by decorating your front door with a seasonal wreath. For example, you can find a grapevine wreath with tulips and burlap, which would make your home more welcoming. Or, you can focus on Easter and choose a wreath with colors that would fit the occasion, like purple and white; you can wrap moss around grapevine, and add some blossoms in the mentioned colors.
Put flowers in an umbrella
Beautiful flowers in an umbrella are probably not something you get to see every day, but that just makes this idea that much more unique. You can hang the umbrella on your front door with a clear wreath hanger, and you can use patterned ribbons to keep the flower arrangement secured. You can also hang it in your kitchen or bedroom, if you want to spice up those rooms. No matter where you hang it, though, it would surely be noticed.
There are many ways to freshen up your home in spring. From changing the textiles to bringing nature inside through flowers, your home is bound to feel more lively. So, think about the listed tips, apply to your home those that you like the most, and you’ll be enjoying the full beauty of spring in no time.
