Spring is the perfect time to re-energize and update your home with new accessories and decorations. From seasonal curtains and throws to wall art and décor, you can modernize your home with a unique flair for the season and beyond.
But we are often asked, “When should I start decorating for spring?”
Although there is no hard-and-fast rule about the most appropriate time to decorate for spring, we understand the desire to be through with winter. We suggest thinking about your spring decorating ideas around the beginning of April.
Spring Decorating Ideas
Before we dive into all the potential ways to decorate for spring, it is essential to pick a color pallet to center your spring décor around.
Most people think of the pastel palette for spring, but other options may work better for what you already have in your home. For some fresh spring color ideas, you may consider:
- Vibrant floral tones including coral, marigold, teal, violet, or periwinkle
- Earth tones such as dark green, browns, tans, or neutrals
Or you may wish to stick to the traditional pastel colors such as sky blue, pale yellow, or lavender.
No matter what color palette you choose, stay consistent with your choices to create the most cohesive look and feel for your home.
1. Spring Wall Art and Accessories for A Pop of Color
Wall art is one of the best ways to change up the look and feel of a room. Use pieces that fit your chosen spring color scheme, and you will instantly transform the room's atmosphere and boost its appeal.
Some ways to add a touch of spring with artwork include:
Going coastal: Coastal decorations are all the rage right now. Add some of these to your home, and you will instantly feel like you have been transported to the beach.
Living room with a view: Whether it is a statement landscape piece of art or a simple painting of flowers, set the stage in your lounge area with a view of some sort. It's perfect for entertaining and makes a great conversation piece when guests come over.
New and fresh: Start with contemporary art and accessories if you are not quite ready to decorate but feel like something is missing. Over time, you can swap out new décor and accessories such as throw pillows, clocks, and other knick knacks to suit your needs.
Flowers: Nothing says spring more than a room filled with fresh flowers. Are allergies a concern? Try some wooden flowers or even some silk ones. They are allergen-free and will last a lifetime.
2. Refresh with Spring Accents
To refresh your home, it can help when you have new or refurbished pieces to add. Here is a list of accessories that can help you with spring refresh:
