Hey there, happy homemakers! Happy almost spring!
Spring means its time to ditch the scarves, hats, jackets and mittens, replace hot cocoa with lemonade and, yes, clean up a bit. It’s also a great time to refresh your home décor for the new season. Here are some ways to perk up your home in a few easy steps.
1. Go green
The color of spring, growth, lushness, freshness and rebirth, green makes everything feel new again. And that’s what spring is all about. Start fresh with a green that lifts your sprits: moss, jade, mint, even forest, and create your spring refresh from there.
2. Go greener
One way to bring the outdoors in is to literally bring it inside! Plants and flowers wake up your home in a way nothing else can. Every room can have a houseplant, a tree or a vase full of blooms. Even a small bud in the powder room can make a major impact. That little bit of green changes everything!
3. Pucker up
Sun-kissed citrus brights are definitely in for spring. Lemony yellow, orange and ruby red grapefruit are all perfect colors to add pops of fun to your home.
4. Swap some layers
Pillows, rugs, lampshades, throws, even peel-and-stick wall decals are versatile examples of colorful items you can use to shake up your decor. Florals are always an appropriate choice for spring as are crosshatch textures, which remind us of woven Easter baskets!
5. Lighten up
I’m not just talking about finding humor in the every day, though I am a huge believer in that philosophy. I’m talking about color! Save the dark colors for fall and opt for pastels instead. Anything that makes you happy and feels like spring. Grassy greens, lovely lilacs, sunny yellows, cheerful sky blues and milky whites brighten up your home in a way you’ll appreciate all season long.
