The top spring home decorating ideas
After a long, chilly winter, the easiest way to brighten your mood is by adding touches of spring décor into your home, to welcome the beautiful season. Spring represents renewal and growth. Therefore, it’s no wonder that many of us feel a desire to transform our homes when it reaches this time of the year. However, it can be difficult to know where to begin when wanting to give your space a freshen up. Whether you enjoy going all out with spring décor, or prefer to add a few touches here and there, our spring decorating ideas will inspire you to embrace the season regardless.
Spring décor would not be spring without an infusion of florals – in your fabrics, on your walls or simply in a vase. One of the simplest ways to give any room a makeover is by adding a bouquet of fresh flowers – whether that’s on a kitchen counter or dining table. From bunches of daffodils and tulips to sprigs of eucalyptus and hyacinths, take advantage of all those stunning flowers at your local supermarket or florist. Sprucing up your home with fresh flowers is easy and best of all, it can be done in every room within your humble abode. Between gorgeous centrepieces and nightstand-friendly bud vases, there's no place in your house that couldn't benefit from a little flower power.
If you are unable to get your hands on fresh flowers or plants – faux is the way forward. Many give off the same refreshing vibe as living plants and look just as real. They are ideal for popping on shelves, coffee tables and other timber surfaces. Plus, this way you won’t have to worry about damaging your surfaces with water.
Light and Airy Fabrics
When it comes to spring décor – it’s time to put away those heavy faux fur throws and woven blankets, and switch them with gentler materials, like cotton or linen. Your bedroom will benefit from this airy feel as it can make a space feel bigger and brighter. Try layering whites and pale pinks – this is a beautiful way to add bursts of colour whilst still maintaining a neutral space.
A quick and easy way to decorate for spring is to lighten your window coverings. A bright and airy aesthetic works wonders in elevating the atmosphere in a room.
You can lighten your window dressings in the following ways:
- Lighten the shade – for instance sharp white, creams, soft pinks and light greys are all stunning go-to choices for spring. The Vogue curtain in blush pink is the perfect ingredient for springtime beauty.
- Lighten the weight – for instance as an alternative to a heavy and thick curtain, switch it out for something gauzier or sheerer.
- Lighten the texture – for instance instead of velvet, swap the fabric out for cotton or linen.
When you look outside during spring, you will see things growing back after Winter, for example bright and beautiful flowers. After all – this is the season of rebirth. So why not have your interiors mimic this? Whilst darker shades felt more accustomed to Winter, now it’s time to swap them out for pastels or striking neon’s. For a fresh spring ambiance – think sumptuous greens, sky blues and cloud whites. These nature-inspired tones never fail to deliver the vitality of the season. If you're really feeling adventurous, you can even swap out some of your old dining room chairs for colourful ones.
If you want to give your neutral bedroom a spring makeover – paint your blinds in a new refreshing shade. Or purchase blinds that already pop in colour like the El Dorado roller bind in citrine yellow – the perfect spring introduction in your bedroom. This is an uplifting alternative to white and can be shade-matched to another furnishing or wallpaper, to tie the look together.
When it comes to spring décor – it’s the perfect time for freshening up your bedroom for the brighter and warmer months ahead. What better way to do this than with your bedding? White bedding lasts all year round, but it especially pops in spring and summer, as it makes your bedroom feel cool and calm. If you want something a little more colourful, go for any flower, check or dotted pattern and make it snug with lots of pillows. Or you can also recharge your boudoir aesthetic by swapping out your big, fluffy winter blankets, throws and pillows with versions of them that are lighter in weight and colour.
Spring décor isn’t just limited to certain rooms in the house, you can even infuse this season into your kitchen. If you want to give your kitchen a little TLC for spring – a mosaic backsplash will work wonders. Best of all, it’s easy to clean and maintain. What more could you want?! Unlike with tiles or marble, you won’t have to clean mosaic as soon as some water trinkles onto it. Plus, you can select from a range of different unique designs. If there is a kitchen revamp, there should be a mosaic backsplash — it’s a no-brainer.
