Gone are the cold winter nights and freezing temperatures; spring is here to stay! (For the next few months, at least.) Spring is a season characterized by renewal and revival. Bring those feelings into your home this spring by using these decorating ideas to liven up your living space!
1. Spring Colors around Your Home
Incorporating spring colors into your apartment is a great way to ring in the season. Pastel colors will look great anywhere, so you won’t need to spend too much time thinking of color choices. Once you have picked out some colors, incorporate them into any aspect of your home.
Swap out your gray plates for a lighter green color. Change your burgundy drapes by replacing them with lilac drapes. A good idea is to go around your apartment and replace any dark décor with a spring color of your choice. Get as creative as you can and you’ll forget all about winter!
2. Flowers Here, There and Everywhere
Flowers are a trademark of spring. Once the flowers start blooming, everyone knows the new season is here. Replicate spring’s arrival into your apartment by adding flowers around the house. Colorful vases are a plus when it comes to spring décor.
Whether it’s an actual floral arrangement, paintings of flowers, or floral patterns on sheets or curtains, being surround by all the vibrant colors and designs will remind you what spring is all about.
3. Bring Nature into Your Home
If flowers aren’t your thing, plants might be more your style. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, there are plenty of low-maintenance houseplants that you can take care of in your apartment, including jade, aloe and cacti. By using plants or flowers to decorate, you are bringing elements of nature into your home and embodying the true spirit of spring.
4. Add Some Springtime Scents
The spring air is full of sweet and natural scents. Once spring hits, it’s time to ditch the peppermint and gingerbread candles and swap them for a more spring oriented scent. Some spring scents to consider are lavender, lily and citrus. You can incorporate these scents into your home in the form of candles, oils or air fresheners.
5. A Pop of Color
Add pops of color in your apartment wherever possible. Warm spring tones and pastel colors will make the space more bright and lively, as opposed to the neutral grays and whites that come with many apartments. Get rid of dreary winter blues and grays, and lean more toward greens, lilacs and pastel colors. Some places to incorporate more color are in artwork, pillows, throws and rugs.
6. Do Some Spring Cleaning
Believe it or not, decluttering your home can have positive effects on your health. For example, it can help you feel more relaxed and organized. Decluttering your living space helps you declutter your mind, so take some time to engage in some serious spring-cleaning this season. Get rid of anything you no longer need because these items just take up space, which is the last thing you want in an apartment.
