Spring is here and has been here for a few weeks now. I love this time of year. I love getting all of my spring decor out and making my home feel brighter and less doom and gloom from the winter months. Today I am sharing with you 5 tips to give your home a spring decor refresh.
Fresh Blooms/Greenery //
There is nothing that screams spring like fresh blooms in your house. If you have a black thumb like me, I recommend investing in high quality faux plants. While faux flowers/plants can seem expensive up front, it will be cheaper in the long run, especially if you have a tendency to kill plants *raises hand*. Some of my favorite places to buy faux plants are Hobby Lobby (wait till they are 50% off!), Marshalls, and Ikea.
Update Your Mantle //
Spruce up your mantle buy adding lighter colors and moving some greenery on your mantle. This will set the tone for the theme of your house and become a perfect focal point for your room. I love adding a large mirror to reflect the sunlight, using neutral colored candles, and lots of neutral/green flowers.
Swap Your Wreath //
Take down that dark wreath and swap with a fresh wreath. There are many great wreaths that have flowers, moss, and even succulents. The brighter the wreath, the better!
Most people associate spring with spring cleaning. What better way to spring clean than by de-cluttering your home. Start by getting rid of any unnecessary decor items that will make your home feel cluttered rather than refreshed. Next, clear out any unwanted clothes that didn’t get worn during the winter months. Finally, go through any of your makeup products, kitchen gadgets, and junk drawers and dispose of anything that hasn’t gotten use. This will help make your home feel clean, more refreshed, and new again.
New Throw Pillows //
Throw pillows are the quickest and easiest swap to instantly make your home feel refreshed. What’s great about throw pillows is that they are easy to store, inexpensive, and can instantly change the vibe of your home. In the spring and summer, I typically gravitate towards bright colored throws but this year I decided to opt for something a little more neutral in honor of our wedding. During my hunt for the perfect throw pillows, I stumbled across the cutest personalized throw pillows from Linen and Ivory and knew that I just had to have them. I chose the personalized Mr. and Mrs. set. It came with 2 large pillows that said Mr. and Mrs. and a smaller pillow that had our wedding date on them.
Not looking for personalized pillows? That’s okay because Linen and Ivory has huge selection of spring throw pillows. Some of my favorites include watercolor pineapple, palm branches, watercolor peony, and flamingo.
