Okay, so I know that technically it is already Spring – but I just want it to feel like Spring. Yes, I’m being needy – but who’s with me?! And March is not helping a girl out. March is being such a tease this year. One day: 40, the next day: 65, the next day: 32. What? Come on, March. So – while we’re going through these ups and downs, let’s just officially make it Spring in our homes – deal?!
Here are some fun ideas of how you can easily & cost-effectively introduce some Spring and splashes of color in your home. Let the sun shine in! Let the colors be bright!
Whenever I talk about simple updates & easy ways of adding a pop of color, I always talk about pillows. They are so easy to switch out for seasons – and they are a cost effective way to add a lot of color in a room. Try sky blue, lavender, or fuschia this Spring!
2. Decorative Pulls
Another easy thing to switch out is drawer or cabinet pulls. Maybe you have a few built-ins, or side table drawers that could hold beautiful, colorful pulls? Switch out only the drawer pulls in the bathroom. It’s a quick change – so don’t be afraid to go bold! Beachy, nautical pieces are really hot for Spring this year! Or try a gorgeous, hand-painted ceramic.
A sign of new life. Add them to a simple flower arrangement. Put them in a wreath. I especially love the look of a rustic nest tucked in a shiny glass vase… perfection.
4. Fun Dishes
I have an infatuation with colorful dishes. Bring in the fresh, spring colors with bright plates, patterned bowls, and radiant glasses. Is there a bright color that would combine well with the set of dishes you already use? Have white & blue dishes – add a surprise pop of color with orange bowls!
I have to be real here, fresh flowers are the best. The best. Fresh flowers smell the best, look the best – they can make a vignette or grouping look fresh. What the heck, make it a goal to treat yourself to fresh flowers at least once this Spring! The other side of this reality: fresh flowers can get expensive. So find some silk flowers that you like – that won’t go dying on you all the time. The trend with silk flowers has definitely gone to less is more. Try a simple grouping of one type of flower. Coral or blue anyone? I love hydrangeas – I think they are one of the most “real” looking silk flowers!
How do you bring Spring into your home?! I’d love to hear your thoughts & ideas.
