If you’re tired of the winter blues, why not get a jump on spring? No need to venture out into the cold. These tips are all about the great indoors! While the groundhog’s prediction might have been wrong, the official first day of spring is only days away. Bring the beauty of nature into your home, and get ready for sunshine and spring flowers!
#1: Give spring a grand welcome.
Okay, this first tip does require opening your front door, but you don’t have to go far! Give spring a grand welcome by swapping out that faux evergreen for a lovely floral wreath. Then spruce up your front porch with a springy welcome mat and pretty potted plants that can tolerate cooler temps.
#2: Add a burst of bright and cheerful color.
Ditch the drab grays and deep shades of winter for a burst of bright color. Spring hues include sweet and sunny yellow, pale pink, sky blue, and grassy green. Add pretty pops of color in your TV room with cotton canvas throw pillows, linen curtains, and festive seasonal décor.
#3. Layer on natural texture.
We just mentioned cotton canvas and linen for a reason! These natural fibers are perfect for layering on spring texture. Think burlap table runners, woven jute or sisal area rugs, a natural stone backsplash, and rattan or sea grass baskets in your open concept kitchen.
#4. Let your home bloom.
Fresh flowers are the ultimate spring accent. Add a vase of freshly cut wild flowers to your kitchen or bathroom, or a pretty pot of spring blossoms, like violets or bergenia. Floral prints are also right on trend for fabric (curtains, tablecloths, bedspreads), upholstery, and even wallpaper.
#5. Tackle DIY home projects.
Have you been dreaming of new granite countertops in your open concept kitchen or have you been putting off installing much-needed wall cabinets for laundry room storage? Whatever the home improvement project, now is the perfect time to tackle that DIY fix or upgrade.
#6. Don’t forget the finishing touches.“Spring Cleaning” is a given, but don’t forget the finishing touches. After scrubbing your bathroom from top to bottom, add fresh, fluffy towels to your linen closet and sweetly scented soaps for guests. In the kitchen, ditch the dingy dishtowels and sponges for a new set and swap wintery linens for something springy. In the bedroom, pack away your heavy comforter and wool blankets for a cool cotton quilt.
