As the snow continues to melt and the temperatures continue to rise in Park City, spring is rapidly creeping up on us. With the newness and freshness that this season brings, it might be time to start updating your decorating style to prepare for the warmer seasons.
To get you ready for this spring, we have come up with a few spring home decor ideas to spruce up your home. These are super easy and inexpensive ways to make your home come alive for the spring.
Getting in The Mood
The first idea is one you would not usually associate with decorating: music. There is nothing like having some beautiful and lively music playing with the windows thrown wide open. Not only will this make your home come alive, but it will add a spring in your step.
Having the right music playing at your house can boost productivity, lighten your mood, and convey an atmosphere that promotes good well-being and a good mood.
Another essential update is the accessories around your home. Summer and spring months mean that you now have the freedom to get rid of all the accessories you used in the wintry months.
Review the trinkets you keep on your fireplace mantel and coffee table and lighten your bookshelf. Replace your heavier accessories such as brass candlesticks and dark wood boxes with some lightly colored items and vases. If you were decorating with candles, go all out with light colors by replacing the dark candles with ivories and whites.
With spring starting to brighten up the inside of the home, it’s time to make it smell the same way too. Get rid of all your pine and cinnamon candles and replace them with spring scents. Give each room a different scent so that the change in the air is more profound from room to room. One of the best ways to add scents is to use essential oils such as grapefruit and lavender spread into the room through a diffuser.
Spring brings with it renewal and rebirth, and hence to welcome it, you have to have your interior décor mirror the outdoors. Put away all the dark colors that you loved so much for the cozy warmth they gave during the winter, and consider swapping them with some brighter colors.
Pastels are synonymous with spring and do the perfect job at freshening up your spring home decor. Both gentle and airy, these hues offer an environment of tranquility so greatly desired in our fast-paced, hectic lives. Whether as accent pillows, wall color, or decor pieces, pastels in spring home decor add a softness that comes with springtime.
Furniture and Plants
Now is also the time to enjoy some light and fun furniture. Swap out your upholstered or dark wood bench and bring out the spring-colored wicker chairs or lightly-colored end tables. Balconies, living rooms, bathrooms, and bedrooms will look great with some garden-inspired furniture. You could also spice it up with some vintage watering cans that bring out the spirit of spring and summer.
Another critical adjustment not to be overlooked is to change your lampshades. Change the lampshades on your chandeliers, sconces, floor lamps, and table lamps. What you are looking for is something fun and brightly colored that goes well with your interiors. Changing the lampshade can be as simple as adding a ribbon around the top and bottom of the lampshade or asking your vendor for customized pieces (these tend to be more expensive).
Another way to welcome the spring is to introduce some greens. You can plant an indoor garden that will make your home ready for spring as it truly brings the outdoors into the house. Moreover, having green herbs in the house will improve the air quality, which will make you and your family healthier and happier.
If neither of these ideas jumps out at you, we suggest simply buying some flowers from the local store or even buying some fake flowers if you are worried about them dying.
One simple change that can be made is rearranging your spaces. You do not have to do anything significant as changing your entire home. Adding a few things here and there can make a huge difference.
Window curtains also have a considerable effect on the look of your spaces. Replacing your heavy winter draperies with some colorful and light shades and curtains could work wonders for your spring home décor.
Another simple idea is to buy some new accessories for the front porch. To brighten up your front step, opt for a more seasonal welcome maty—it’s an easy upgrade that will completely change your exterior’s aesthetic.
Also, it might be time to invest in some window boxes. While you’re stuck inside, you might as well enjoy the view when you gaze out the windows of your home. Window boxes are an inexpensive addition that will instantly brighten the look of your home and provide a place to grow and showcase your favorite plants and flowers for years to come.
