Refresh your home for spring! Today the sun is shining, flowers are blooming and we want our homes to look light as the air outside! I’m sharing 5 of my favorite ways to quickly add a light and breezy look to your home and refresh your decor…
1. PILLOWS and THROWS
Toss a few pillows on the bed or your sofa and instantly change your room’s mood (and maybe yours too:-). A pastel throw or perhaps a sweet floral pillow will give your space that happy spring feel and give a soft touch to a neutral room. If you still have those winter pieces out, pack them away, or give them away and replace with lightly colored textiles. Be daring and perhaps try a shade that you normally don’t include in your home, as pillows and throws can be found at any price point and are easy enough to change out on demand.
It’s certainly no secret that I love floral arrangements and they can be the sole pop of color in any room. There is a blooming abundance available and everything just comes alive in spring, so be sure to treat yourself weekly if possible at the grocery or some wildflowers picked roadside. Refresh your home with flowers!
Some of my personal favorites are ranunculus, peonies and garden roses…but a bunch of field flowers in a jar resonate seasonal beauty as well.
As it’s often said, it’s all in the details and I strongly believe that in design as well as in styling what you have. A simple teacup that is dear to you, or even a thrift shop find can be placed on a white tabletop for an object of art on it’s own.
Candles are wonderful accents for spring, especially in the colors that reflect what’s outside. Not only that, but I love to have a softly scented soy candle or two burning while I work that can make it smell great at home.
Same rug…but with different accents, and both styled for spring simply.
Whether inside your home or out, think about using your dining table or porch table as a work of art. Mix and match some place settings with spring colors of blush, lavender and pale blue. Use linens both old and new and don’t be afraid to combine patterns and colors as long as they are in similar hues. If you are like me and don’t sit at the dining room table during the week very often…leave your table set during the week and you’ll just love having a constant reminder of spring and summer even as you work around the house!
