Along with your annual spring cleaning, why not freshen up your home with decorating tips that are quick and easy.
Begin with revitalizing your senses by bringing some of the colors and scents of spring indoors. A vase of fresh flowers straight from your yard is a great addition to any room. Who can resist the beauty and aroma of fresh lilacs or the bright, happy colors of fresh tulips?
Equally as pretty and an excellent way to bring the outdoors inside your house is to add green plants to your home décor. If you feel that you don’t have a green thumb, silk plants are very attractive and can be found in all kinds of shapes, sizes and varieties.
Add energy to your room by rearranging furniture, wall décor and accessories. It will give both you and your room a good workout. It is also a good time to swap out home décor and add items that will brighten a room.
Put away the dark-colored throw on the couch and add a bright or pastel-colored throw. An easy spring decorating idea is to replace your small rugs as the seasons change. Lighter, neutral rugs will add a refreshing touch to any room.
Lots of natural light makes a room more cheery. For that extra sparkle, make certain your windows and all glass surfaces in the room are clean and shining. Replace heavy or dark-colored window coverings with sheer, light-colored window treatments.
If you have tie-backs on your window coverings, this is the time to tie them back and let the sun shine into the room. Who doesn’t like nice, warm sunlight coming through the windows on a spring day?
It is definitely time to get rid of the flannel sheets and winter blankets on the beds. Choose lighter spring shades and textures, such as pastels or beautiful florals. Tuck a couple of dryer sheets in with the flannel sheets when storing them away and they will have a nice fragrance when you get them out in the fall.
You might also want to put away some decorative items in your house. This is a time when “less is more” for that feeling of springtime spaciousness.
With a little creativity and imagination, you can transition your home into spring in no time at all and thoroughly enjoy the results. Each season is a time for renewal… especially the season of Spring!
