Say goodbye to the winter blues! Spring is finally here, and it’s time to throw open your curtains and invite your friends over for tea. Before they step inside your home, however, you might want to do a little redecorating. Here are just five ways to embrace the new season with your interior design.
1. Swap Your Fabrics
You probably appreciated those wool blankets when it was freezing outside, but since the weather is getting nicer by the day, you’ll want to switch to cooler, lighter fabrics like cotton and linen. Use them for curtains, tablecloths, couch blankets and decorative pillow covers.
2. Get Tropical
Make your home feel like a spa when you decorate with big, leafy flora like spider plants and banana leaves. You can even stick them in colorful printed vases for an extra dose of style. In addition, some houseplants can improve your indoor air quality, so they’ll be fragrant and functional!
3. Revamp Your Lights
The days are finally getting longer, and you’ll want to take advantage of the light by making sure that your home reflects the sunshine outside. Think about things like lamps, sconces and skylights. Think about solar panels on the roof and in the garden. Think about a fluorescent starter on the wall.
4. Hit Up the Thrift Store
You might be surprised at the goodies that you can find at your local thrift store. From artwork to vintage furniture, you never know what treasures will be there to bring home and turn into centerpieces. As a bonus, it’ll only cost you a fraction of the price of brand-new home accessories!
5. Change Your Flooring
This might take a little money, but if you’re serious about giving your home a whole new look for spring, think about changing your floor style. For example, go from carpet to hardwood, or go from hardwood to tile. The effect will be drastic!
These are just a few ways to bring springtime freshness into your home. When the weather is gorgeous, your interior design should match it!
