One of the best ways to begin the Spring season is to freshen up your home with some seasonal decorations and activities. This is the time for a seasonal makeover. We have put together some ideas to inspire you on whatever room you want to give a little boost to, most of which are easy to replicate.
Bring Mother Nature Indoors
Get some fresh plants or flowers, or pick some wildflowers from the garden, and scatter them indoors, either in vases or even some fresh petals here and there (though these will need replenishing more often). Remember that fresh is best, and don’t forget to water your plants or change the water occasionally for a bunch of flowers. If you are buying, try going for seasonal and local flowers if possible.
If you are looking for some new furniture or buying new bedsheets, rugs, or tablecloths, try choosing some seasonal colors; either bright yellows or fresh greens or pastel, flowery colors, do the trick. Bright yellow accessories are also gorgeous this spring, whether that is light shades, curtains, or a cushion, it really gives that extra spring feel.
Fresh Coat of Paint
If you have some wooden furniture in need of a fresh coat of paint, or even a wooden kitchen island or barstools, why not give them a fresh makeover with a striking hue of red, green or yellow.
Farmhouse Feeling Flowers
If you are looking for a bit of a DIY artsy project to really bring the spring inside, you can vamp up a basic bouquet of flowers by placing them in a vase made out of sticks and twine.
Give any blank wall a bit of life by adding a small shelf in a similar color to the wall and decorating by some small either real or faux plants in cool planters.
Do-It-Yourself Rope Mirror
Mirrors are great for bringing light into a space or really opening up a room when placed in the right spot. There are gorgeous ways to spruce up a simple mirror by creating your own DIY Anthropologie-inspired one, requiring just a mirror, some rope, some nails and some patience. Definitely do not take this one down when the seasons change!
If you are worried about colored cabinets overwhelming your small kitchen space, try painting just the lower cabinets in a bold color while keeping the top ones neutral.
