If you have any other spring home decorating ideas, I’d love to hear them in the comments.
1. Exchange some textiles.
Changing up a fabric or two is one way to make all the difference as we move into spring, both in terms of changing the look and increasing comfort in warmer weather.
Lighter fabrics like linen and cotton will be your friends in spring and summer, and there’s no shortage of ideas on how you can update your textiles for this season. Here are a few suggestions:
- Swap pillows with heavier fabrics like velvet and wool for pillows with lighter fabrics like linen or cotton. This $30 Pillow from Target What a lovely choice!
- Replace thick, opaque curtains with light, thin fabric curtains (ideal for catching cool summer breezes).
- Place a linen cover over an existing sofa or chair.
- Replace your heavy blanket with a lighter one or blanket.
2. Tell me: More trees!
Ah, plants. We love them here at W&D, both for how they look and the joy and stress relief that comes from watching them grow. Spring marks the beginning of the growing season for these beautiful indoor plants, so I’d say it’s also the perfect time to add (or a handful) of other plant friends to your home. .
If you’re maxed out for plants, consider refreshing your existing cubs by switching to their location in your home (according to their lighting needs of course) or repot them in a new potif they are looking for new soil and a little space to grow.
3. Replace your carpet(s).
A carpet has the ability to change the whole look of your room in the way it frames and sets the background for a space. While I don’t recommend changing every rug in your home with the change of season, there are a few ways you can use carpeting to make an impact as we head into spring:
- Swap your rugs from room to room, try on the living room rug in the bedroom and vice versa. No financial commitment is required here—just a few drops of sweat likely to accumulate from all the moving furniture.
- If you have a patterned rug in a space and you’re craving something simpler, spring might be the right time to replace it with a versatile, neutral option like rugs. sisal or jute yarn.
- Consider removing a rug altogether in the warmer months to come. (You can always bring it back if you change your mind!) Or, if you have multiple layers of carpet in a particular room, consider removing the top rug and letting the bottom rug shine on its own.
4. Add a work of art.
While certainly yes ARE NOT There’s no harm in exchanging every piece of art you own with the changing seasons bring back a new piece reminds you of spring. Whether it’s a piece you bought from a local artist, a second hand purchase from a thrift store, or Marketor do it yourselfThere are many ways to bring eye-catching beauty to your walls.
If and when you bring this new piece of art in, can I recommend hanging it somewhere that you pass by frequently while doing your daily tasks? That way, you’ll get the most enjoyment possible out of it.
5. Refresh your entrance.
As the seasons change—especially for those of us who live in places with four distinct seasons—so does it. Our need for entrance. Coat racks have become less of a necessity for hanging bulky winter clothes, thick doormats are no longer needed to collect snow-covered boots as we walk through doors, and bins for hats and gloves become less important.
There is no need to keep the remnants of winter at the entrance all spring and long summer. Instead, stash your winter coat and accessories—out of sight, out of sight—and replace them with a lighter jacket, baseball cap, and an umbrella or two for rainy days. inevitable in the near future. Put away all thick doormats and consider replacing it with a thinner tapestry instead (if that’s your alley And within your budget).
6. Bring in a colorful accent.
While winter may be known for its moody, jeweled colors, spring is known for its pale hues and the following summer months for its bright, colorful accents. Even if you’re honestly a lover of neutrals, consider including a little color in one accent like pillowcases, lamps, vases, or glass suit for daily use.
7. Bring some flowers into the mix.
You know I won’t mention spring home decor and not talk about flowers, Right? Right. Flowers will bloom like peanut butter and jelly and I won’t have it any other way.
There are several tried and true ways to bring these beauties into your home and I can assure you that it doesn’t have to be an expensive endeavor if you don’t want to.
- Try to arrange it yourself arrange. There’s really no right or wrong way to go about this, but remember that diversity is your friend here! Play around with different heights, varieties, and fillers until you come up with something you love.
- Want more longevity from your flowers? I hear you. If that’s the case, consider dried flowers your friend. Buy them online from a store like Afloral or dry them easily.
- Support a local florist by treating yourself to a flower delivery. apricot blossom is one of our local favorites!
8. Don’t buy anything new! Instead, move some decorations from one location to another.
I live in the land of budget conscious purchasing decisions, and I guess many of you do too. And while I’m happy to bring in new pieces from time to time, it’s safe to say that decorations don’t always fit into my budget in any given month. Enter: the world rearranged.
Move an existing artwork from one room to another. Take a lamp that usually stays in your living room and move it into your bedroom for a change. Try placing a stack of books in a place that is new to you, whether on another piece of furniture or on the floor with a tree above them.
Even if nothing else on this list feels right for your home, I encourage you to give this last idea a try. And whatever you do, have fun with the rearrangement process. Sometimes, a small change in positioning brings the updated perspective we’ve been looking for all along.
