Fresh Spring Decorating To Liven Up Your Home For The Spring Season
Spring freshness within the home is an easy thing to achieve this current season with tips and tricks that will help you bring the outside in using flowers, soft furnishings, textiles, accents of colour and garden accents.
Spring is the season of rebirth. And after a season of winter, we all waiting in anticipation for spring to come around. The challenge is that we are usually ready for it before it’s ready for us! We know we aren’t the only ones who start incorporating elements of spring into our homes as early as February. Waiting on weather to take a turn for the better is not always fun, especially when it’s been wet and wild outside, but that’s more reason to fake it inside until weather cooperates, which it seems to be doing.
Something that we always ponder over as we start to welcome in spring is how do we change up our home to create a look that is new, fresh, and brings accents of the outdoors in? We will show you how with our springtime to do list and decorating tips and tricks.
A little bit of inspiration will help you achieve a look you’ll love.
How to Create a Fresh Spring Look.
The key factor is to keep the fundamentals stay the same no matter the season, but swap out the details for a renewed spring look. We love to incorporate the outside in our springtime looks, anything that would look at home outside can be adapted to look good inside too. We like to have fun with this and use our imagination. Elements that we find the most versatile would be, faux and real plants, rustic pots, lanterns, floristry and rustic elements. For the central spots within our home, we like to choose plenty of greenery, lanterns and natural elements such as moss.
Indoor Garden Theme
One thing we love about an indoor garden theme is that it blends easily with the farmhouse, vintage style. Worry not, If your home is not of these styles, you can still use similar elements but instead of a vintage farmhouse feel why not opt for an English garden feel, a little bit more refined, a little fancier, but still think garden. An indoor garden theme can be easily adapted to fit any style of existing decor. Fresh flowers are one of the easiest ways to create a springtime feel within the home. We found that once we started using fresh flowers in our home it didn’t feel right without them. Nothing says spring more than a bunch of freshly cut flowers. Springtime can be expressed in so many ways throughout the home, we love to use accents of colours and plenty of flowers dotted from room to room whether they be faux or real. It’s so easy and fun to make the house come alive with spring accents.
I love to express springtime with colourful accents and plenty of real and faux flowers. Nothing says spring more than flowers. I love to include greenery, wreaths, spring-inspired pillows with, you guessed it, flowers. You’ll see some nests, birds, bunnies (especially as it gets closer to Easter). It’s so fun and easy to make the house come alive with spring.
To-Do List for a Springtime look
- Declutter – You have to remove the previous season prior to starting the new season. Take away any items that you are tired of seeing put away those Christmas scented candles and make room for scents of lavender and fresh linen.
- Refresh Those Fabrics – Put away your fleece blankets and store away those warm toned soft furnishings until next Autumn and replace them with lighter, cool tones and incorporate lighter fabrics such as cotton and linens for a fresher look and feel.
- Get Organised – Before heading out shopping to buy more spring décor get out what you have already so you know what you have, this will then give you a better understanding of what you then need to purchase.
- Fresh Flowers – As previously mentioned, Nothing says spring more than flowers. Flowers can be expensive, however, supermarkets and local farm shops always offer affordable options for flowers, whether that be a bunch of local daffodils or tulips. If you have green fingers you could always grow your own in the garden. There is always that little bit of satisfaction knowing that you’ve grown them yourself.
When decorating and changing things up with the seasons you should never put any pressure on yourself, it’s all about having fun and enjoying the process. Decorating is a process and is all about trying things out, we don’t always get it right the first time around so it is always good to go in with the right mentality and know that it’s all about trial and error. Taking the time to step back, think about it, make a cup of tea and look at it again is the perfect way to do it and repeat those stages as many times as you need to as we won’t always get it right the first time around. Don’t let that worry you and it’s a work in progress. Allowing your creative juices to flow whether that be over a couple of days or even weeks is very beneficial. Decorating is always an ongoing process that we are never really done and one that we are always looking and critiquing.
Building The Perfect Spring Tray
A tray can be the most central point to a room and one of the most important elements to decorate. Creating the right spring tray is all down to the elements that you chose to use. We tend to incorporate greenery, whether that be faux or real, books, which are perfect for building height and texture, candles, because who doesn’t love a candle and lastly a natural texture such as wooden beads.
Regardless of the weather outside as soon as spring fever hits my home a sudden sense of joy comes over us and which helps us with the wait for the warmer, sunnier days. Once spring has entered the home, It can do whatever it pleases outside as long as I have a sense of spring inside that’s all that matters.
