It might be a little cool to switch over your wardrobe to your spring clothes, but there’s nothing stopping you from putting up your favorite spring decor. The way your home looks can have a huge impact on your mood. Let go of the drab colors of winter and liven things up with bright spring hues. Make a day of it and invited some friends over. Read on for tips and tricks to get started.
1. Change Out Throws and Blankets
Your home is a wild ecosystem full of bacteria and other potential threats. Throws and blankets that are left out all year long can carry bacteria that could cause illness. It’s important to wash your throws and blankets often. But also, consider changing them out periodically. Changing every season also allows you to get a blanket that is the perfect weight so you’ll never be too hot or too cold.
2. Add Plants and Flowers for Spring Decor
Spring is the season of renewal and one of the most beautiful places that is represented is in nature with the blossoming of flowers. Why not bring some of those beautiful blooms indoors to brighten up your space? Or, purchase some succulents for your home if you want something more easy to grow.
3. Create an Air of Spring
When you think of spring, you think of fresh air, clean linens, and a refreshing breeze. To create an air of spring in your home, you will need to invest in candles or essential oils that carry a bouquet of spring fragrance.
You can also buy lightweight curtains and rugs to make the space feel fresher. It’s time to go shopping for some fun throw rugs.
4. Declutter and Organize
Spring is a time for downsizing, decluttering and organization. After a long winter, it’s time to get rid of all of the stuff exploding out of your closets. Start by getting rid of all of the winter clothes you didn’t wear that year. If you didn’t find time to wear it all season, it’s not likely that you will wear it next year.
5. Add Pops of Color
Spring is all about bright, sunny colors. Think about your home’s color palette and what colors would mix in well. You don’t have to go as far as painting a wall to add in an accent color. Even small choices like adding a colorful bowl of fruit can make a huge difference in the feel of your home.
Or you could purchase and refinish a small table in a fun color to brighten up your space without spending a lot of money. Put a few photos on top of it and you have a fun spring display.
Where to Find a Great Apartment
Decorating your place with spring decor is a great way to welcome the season. But if you’re stuck in a drab apartment with low light, it’s hard to create the air and energy of spring.
