Spring is often a welcomed change from the dreary winter weather. With an injection of that sun-filled breezy season, a desire to clean up and air out undoubtedly follows. Spring prep doesn’t have to be a dreaded task. Get some inspiration for making your home as spring-like as a lavender field by following some easy seasonal DIY home décor ideas.
Swap out heavy winter covers for a breezier option – If you’re like me, you have approximately 12 medium weight blankets covering your bed during the winter months. Spring is the season of redemption; swap out that blanket fort for a lighter quilt in a bright neutral tone.
Change out the earth-tones for neutrals – This can be something as basic as replacing your tomato red couch pillows with spring-centric colors, or as invested as painting the navy blue walls in your living room a new shade of warm. No matter what degree of spring cleaning fever strikes you, there are varying upgrades you can do around the abode to accommodate the changing season.
Incorporate flora and fauna into your space – Most people think of flowers as an elegant accent to any home. But, they can also require a lot of maintenance and upkeep. Some plant options that are becoming increasingly trendy and don’t need much hand holding are succulents and cacti. These little guys are meant to go for long stints without being watered and only need a healthy dose of sunlight to thrive. Need to liven up an area that doesn’t have much sunlight exposure? Try French lavender. It is therapy for your nose and your eyes, and, best of all, it doesn’t require any maintenance.
The crème de la crème of spring décor trends: Living Coral accent pieces – Pantone’s 2019 color of the year is Living Coral. Living Coral is cool rosé on a warm spring afternoon, it is full and confident to winter’s neutral calm, it is bright, and cheerful, and happy; in essence, everything spring should be. Consider accenting your favorite comfy chair or that white bedspread with a few decorative pillows in Living Coral.
No matter what your budget or motivational level is for getting your home Spring ready, there are plenty of options to choose from. Make sure you scale your spring cleaning down to a realistic level. If your time and money are running short, don’t get bogged down in revamping every room in your house. Start with a few easy swap outs and accent pieces, and watch those small upgrades transform your winter cave into a spring oasis.
