With the weather warming up, flowers in full bloom and the days getting longer, spring is the season of celebration and rebirth. As the world, well, springs back to life, it’s the perfect time to incorporate this spirit into your home decor, too. There are some key subtle touches you can add to your home now, for a sophisticated and stylish spring touch, reminding you every day of the beauty and growth of this (much welcome) new season.
Add a pastel pop
If your home is furnished with primarily neutral or dark shades, think of spring as an opportunity to brighten things up. Pick pastel shades such as blush pink, buttercup yellow or mint green to add a seasonal twist — in the form of throw pillows and blankets, or decorative details such as vases or candles. You can simply swap out your accessories for a fresh new spin on your space. You could also go as far as painting an accent wall if you’re looking for a more permanent change.
Spring is all about growth, so incorporate that mindset into your home. Add potted plants and greenery throughout to add a natural element that infuses life into any room. Whether you opt for large-scale greenery such as a fiddle-leaf fig tree or a fishtail palm tree, or go with something smaller such as an indoor herb garden for your kitchen. A hint of greenery here and there will bring the outdoors in.
Bring in freshly cut flowers
If you don’t have a green thumb but want to take advantage of spring blooms, opt for fresh-cut flowers instead of potted plants. Go with seasonal blossoms such as tulips, lilacs or daffodils, or choose lower-maintenance greenery such as eucalyptus or ferns. Or, go with a mix of both to brighten up any room and add a hint of upscale elegance.
Incorporate more mirrors
As the days get longer, take advantage of the bountiful sunlight by incorporating more mirrors into your living space. Add a large round mirror in your dining area or a vintage mirror in your entryway to help more light bounce around and create added brightness and airiness. That way, your home will feel refreshed and renewed with natural light.
Add a fresh wreath
Greet guests with a seasonal touch before they even walk through the door. A front-door wreath is the perfect way to add some cheer and color to your home’s exterior with minimal effort — and maximum impact. All-greenery wreaths filled with eucalyptus, vines and ferns are a monochromatic and sophisticated option, while those bursting with bright flowers such as tulips or daisies are a color-forward way to celebrate the season.
Swap to linen bedding
Give your bedroom a spring makeover with a bedding upgrade with light and bright linens. This functional fabric will help keep you cool as the weather warms up while also giving your space a luxurious and effortless feel, making it the perfect blend of form and function.
Create a garden-inspired tablescape
For a no-paint, no-fuss way to bring spring inside, consider upgrading your tablescape for the season. From brightly colored dishware to a festive table runner, there are easy and elegant ways to add a hint of spring. Try using a monochromatic color palette to keep the overall look elevated: Incorporate different shades and textures of the same hue to create a visually striking table that is perfect for everything from intimate dinners to large dinner parties.
