Springtime is in full effect and I couldn’t be more thrilled. After such a cold and harsh winter here in Kansas City, spring truly feels like a revival for me both creatively and mentally. I have been craving fresh air, patio weather, and of course, the start of rosé season. I am even excited for April showers that will bring us all those May flowers we deserve. Plus, now that my spring cleaning is done (well…almost done) I’m ready to start introducing fresh and springy décor to brighten up my house. As I begin this fun transition, I want to share some of my favorite ways to change my décor going into this light and bright season.
Incorporate Greenery. There are countless ways to bring fauna into your space without completely redecorating. I love to use ferns and wreaths to enhance my existing vignettes and tablescapes – one small change can have a big impact! Versatile fern wreaths are also excellent for DIY lovers who want to create their own masterpieces.
Another go-to for me is the classic topiary (are you surprised? 😉). They seriously never go out of style! Available in any size, they are a great addition to shelves, tabletops, vignettes – I could go on and on!
Artful Florals. I absolutely adore flowers, however my allergies do not! This being the case, I have found that faux flowers and floral patterns bring the same beauty that I crave from the real deal. Nothing brings freshness into a space quite like flowers!
If you aren’t ready to take the plunge for a full floral sofa, try incorporating bright flowers into your existing decor. Much like greenery, adding simple floral accents is an easy way to freshen your space. I find arranging my collection of faux flowers into new arrangements to be both relaxing and fun! Adding them to transitional pieces like bottle displays, cloches, and pedestals make changing seasons easy as can be.
Seasonal Pieces. ‘Tis the season for spring holidays! I love to bring in Easter décor that can last beyond the holiday itself. Bunnies are my usual go-to, from pillows to figurines these cute additions hop through my living space all spring long! This year I am bringing in some spring eggs that add sparkle to my décor. The bright colors and fun aesthetic of these eggs add a bit of whimsy to my rooms and tablescapes.
Introduce Wicker and Natural Elements. In my opinion, there are few better pairings then fresh greens and wicker. Bringing in natural elements gives the feeling of being outside on the porch – without having to go outside! Wicker, rope accents, and other woven design elements add texture to a room without overpowering it. They are a fantastic and subtle way to change up your home.
Throw in Some Color. Throw pillows are a great way to introduce spring colors and textures without replacing major pieces. Choose a few colors you want to incorporate, then find a nice mix of both solid and patterned fabrics that tie into your existing décor. It’s a quick fix that doesn’t break your budget!
What are some of your favorite ways to freshen up your home for Spring? I would love to be inspired as I celebrate this season my own home. Let me know in the comments below!
