With Easter behind us, spring is now well and truly in the air. To welcome the season of optimism, why not spruce up your home with some fresh decor ideas to match? Whether you prefer bright and bold colours or soft pastels, there are plenty of ways to infuse your living space with spring decor. Here are some top tips to brighten up your home and put a spring in your step.
While far from ground-breaking, spring florals simply never get old. Adding touches of floral patterns to your space is one of the simplest and most effective ways to bring spring indoors and say goodbye to winter. Transform your space to reflect the warmer and brighter days with some colourful wallpaper, a new piece of floral art, or with floral printed textiles such as accent cushions, a tablecloth or new bedding. Even a subtle touch of florals can make a huge impact when transitioning your interiors for spring.
Nothing screams spring quite like a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. Choose your favourite spring flowers in pastel shades or vibrant bursts of colour and create a stunning centrepiece for your dining table or living room. Tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are abundant and inexpensive early in the season and will quickly cheer up any space. You can also place smaller arrangements throughout your home for the colours and aromas of spring to permeate every room.
Wreaths and garlands are a great way to get into the spring spirit. Why not get creative and make your own using fresh flowers, twigs and greenery from outside? Or for something that will last for many seasons to come, opt for a faux version that will mark the beginning of spring each year. Hang your wreath on your front door or add one to your mantel or entryway. Garlands can be draped across a fireplace or wrapped around a staircase railing for a beautiful festive touch to your home.
As the weather warms up, it's time to put away your heavy winter blankets and swap them out for lightweight throws in bright, cheerful colours and prints. Look for fabrics like linen or cotton and choose colours that complement your existing decor. Pastels like mint green, lavender and soft pink are perfect for spring and create a calming and peaceful atmosphere. You can easily add pastels by swapping out your throw pillows, adding a new area rug, or even replacing heavy drapes with breezy linen curtains that let the sun in.
Creating a spring tablescape can be a fun and creative way to welcome the season into your home. Choose a colour scheme that reflects the shades of spring, and add layers of different textures for depth, with a table runner, placemats, napkins and layered ceramics. Natural fibres are best, such as linen and seagrass, and your centrepiece will be the main focus, so opt for something that screams spring, such as fresh flowers or a decorative bowl. You could also use natural elements such as moss or twigs to add a touch of spring.
There are countless ways to quickly and simply incorporate spring decor into your home. From fresh flowers and pastel colours to light fabrics and natural elements, these ideas will help you create a fresh, inviting space that celebrates the season of new beginnings. So embrace the springtime and get decorating.
