Spring is showing its face slower, with longer and sunnier days. It is great that we can finally escape the cold winter days and enjoy some warming sun light. The feelings brings us so much joy that we want to feel the spring’s coming inside our home as well, like a subtle message to remind us that beautiful weather is not very far away. So how can we do it? How can we prepare our houses for spring? Here are some great ideas of decorating and making the house ready to welcome spring.
The first change you can make is about your decorative pillows. During the winter time, we love pillows that are soft and fluffy, like plush or velvet. But once the warm season is arriving they don’t look so appealing anymore. Try lightening up the atmosphere with pillows made out of cotton or linen, printed with beautiful images or even flowers. Either you buy the whole pillow or just a pillow case, the effect will be the same. Also, decorating with live green foliage will look amazing and very refreshing. Either you choose a pot or just some big green leaves to place in a vase, the effect will be rejuvenating on your room. Try choosing vases and pots that have bright colors, to add up to that happy feeling.
A trick to make your house look new, without spending a dime, is to rearrange your furniture, at least in the living room. Just swap things around, and when you’re done, you will have the impression the room is an entirely different one. Isn’t that very economic? Add as well some bold colors, for a great effect. You can do this by purchasing affordable vases and decorating items, which have bright colors like pink, fuchsia, green, blue, whatever pleases your eye. Colorful magazines and books placed on your coffee table can also add a bit of color boost. Look as well for agate decorative pieces, because they do have an amazing effect. Or add small and colorful flower bouquets.
Spring is also the season to make some cleaning. Make sure you welcome the new season in a nice and spotless atmosphere, and you will be more than pleased about the event and about your house. Also, try to give your house a minimalist look. For instance, put away your carpets, or just send them out for some cleaning, and live with bare flooring for a while. Put away any heavy piece of decoration and keep only a few blossoming branches and some green plant. You will feel that the spring has entered your home through your door and windows. And for a complete spring coming feeling, change the scent in your house. Renew, for example, your collection of scented candles and go for fragrances like clean laundry or citrus. These smells are fresh and will add up to the visual effects caused by the changes you made.
These are the ways spring home décor designers use to prepare their homes for spring. Hopefully, you will find these advices useful in your case as well. Don’t hesitate to share opinions and tell us how you prefer to welcome spring in your home.
