The enchanting beauty of snow blanketing the earth is one of the reasons many people love winter. But the breathtaking colors and splendor of spring is also a welcome sight. Take your cue from the surrounding landscape and transition your home from winter to spring with these decorating tips and ideas.
Forget Red, Think GREEN
Step out of winter by rotating out pieces of red décor that warmed up your home during the cold season. While this color still provides nice contrast in mid-February, it will look and feel tired when March comes around.
Mirror the emerging color outside by adorning your home with green décor items. Start introducing decorations that can last through May, such as a spring moss topiary and a leafy centerpiece.
Dress Your Table with Flowers
There is probably no better way to bring a festive touch to your tables than with fresh flowers. Put out beautiful blooms, such as daffodils and tulips, to signal the coming of spring. As you go deeper into the season, add in other varieties of flowers with rich, striking colors.
Embrace the Spirit of the Season
Spring is a time for rebirth and new beginnings. In April, fill your home with this message of renewal by displaying decorative eggs. Egg accents in taupe or cream shades, are versatile enough to stay even after Easter.
For a more vibrant atmosphere, decorate your living spaces with faux birds, more flowers, potted plants, or bright ribbons.
Change Christmas Accents to Spring Decorations
Keep your home from being stuck in a perpetual winter setting by letting it play along with nature’s variations. Start by switching your evergreens with foliage that’s more appropriate for spring. Then, replace your holiday accents with countryside-themed decorations, such as bird’s nests and bunnies to bring a charming sense of nature into your home.
Celebrate the Outdoors
The warm spring weather makes spending time outdoors more enticing and enjoyable. Freshen up the look of the porch or patio by planting garden flowers or setting potted flowering plants. Choose bright flowers such as primroses to make outdoor spaces cozier and more inviting. Echo the cheer of these spring colors around your exteriors by introducing new linens and pillow accents that reflect the attractive hues of your favorite flowers.
Try out these spring decorating tips and ideas and make your home more captivating by keeping it up-to-date with the splendor of the changing season.
