Spring time is here, and it’s easy to believe seasonal decorating is a waste of money. Actually, seasonal decor can greatly impact your mental health and general enjoyment of your home.
Spring is the perfect time of year to embrace seasonal decor! The color palettes vary from soft pastels to bright, cheery colors, so you’re sure to find items that already go with what you own. From there, add in touches that give you the wonderful feeling of a fresh, new start. Need some ideas to started? We have you covered!
Bring the Outdoors In
Flowers from your garden or the farmer’s market are the perfect way to announce that Spring has arrived in your home. A large bouquet can be a centerpiece for a dining or entry table, or you can break up a bouquet and tuck a few flowers into bud vases for a budget-friendly way to decorate multiple spaces.
If you struggle with caring for flowers or suffer from allergies, try flowers made from paper or wood. They’re just as colorful and pretty as the real thing, but don’t require any upkeep!
Express Yourself With Art
Art is often one of the most intimidating parts of decorating, because it’s extremely personal and subjective. Don’t just concern yourself with what “goes” with your home decor. Ask yourself what types of art make you happy!
Spring is all about renewal. Why not renew your outlook on artwork and try something out of your comfort zone?
Ideas on art pieces that embrace Spring include paintings or photographs of nature, stained glass, framed quotes about Springtime, and updated family photos. Set out coloring pages to spark creativity and relieve stress. (This is a fun activity for kids and guests, too!)
Switch Out Your Textiles
Seasonal textiles don’t have to be reduced to pillows with Easter bunnies printed on them. Whereas your Winter textiles are likely thick, soft, and cozy, your Spring textiles should be fresh, lightweight, and cheerful.
Think Spring-like patterns, pops of color, and airy fabrics like linen and cotton.
Remember, your home should be a place you find refuge and joy in. Choose decorations that reflect you, and enjoy your new touches of Spring!
