Spring is finally getting nearer and that makes for a wonderful excuse to do a little redecorating to celebrate the season. With drab winter colours on their way out, welcome these fun spring trends into your home.
Pops of colour
Using bright splashes of colour is a popular decorating trend year-round, but it becomes even more fun when spring colours are at your fingertips. Bowls of bright, fake fruit and vases of artificial spring flowers can be placed in key locations for exciting flashes of colour. Or, if you’re willing to shell out a little extra cash for a real spring feel, consider getting decorative lamps, curtains and mirrors in bold hues. Baby blues and pastel greens are sure to be trendy this season, so consider starting there and see where your decorating creativity takes you!
Don’t throw away your Valentine’s Day bouquet just yet! Instead, press them and keep them on hand to create your own version of Martha Stewart’s framed flowers. It’s the perfect way to welcome spring — by bringing a piece of the garden into your home. And this way you can have a floral reminder that spring is on its way even before the first blossoms flourish. If you don’t feel quite up to the task of crafting your own frames, as Martha does, keep your eyes peeled for unique, floral-themed artwork that will add a fresh, seasonal flare to your home.
Decorative pillows are always fun to play around with when redecorating. This season, banish the drabness of winter by covering your couches and beds in colourful pastels. Spice things up with glittery cushions and pops of embroidery. Don’t be afraid to consider floral or fruity prints — they are sure to brighten up all your living spaces.
Brightly painted furniture
It isn’t just about the accessories this season — everything, down to your shelves and coffee tables, can be spring-ified. Have an old end table you were thinking of throwing out or a coat rack that’s been gathering dust? Get ready to breathe new life into them. In many cases all it will need is a good cleaning, sanding and priming before you slap on a coat of your favourite spring hue. If you don’t happen to have any old furniture yourself, don’t be afraid to ask around. Chances are some of your friends or family have an expiring piece that they’d be happy to have you take off their hands. So get your DIY on this spring and turn old furniture from drab to fab!
Brightening up your home with these stunning trends is the perfect way to put winter behind you and go full speed ahead into the joy of spring!
