Now that it’s springtime, you may be wondering how you can make your home reflect the beautiful weather outside. You want your home to be fresh and airy and get rid of the stuffy winter feel your home has been reflecting over the past few months. Below are some spring home ideas you can bring to your living room to refresh and revitalize your space.
Declutter & Organize
Nothing makes your home feel lighter and brighter than by eliminating clutter. Cleaning your home and purging old things goes a long way to reworking the feel of your space. After purging, you can then organize your belongings easier with baskets, hooks, and labels. Shelving, in particular, is a popular option if you have a blank wall that needs a little decor while also maximizing your space. A clean organized home gives you a more functional space and without countless things bogging down your living room, you can focus on adding spring decor that will make the space pop.
Spring Home Decor
To bring spring into your living room, you must decorate with spring decor. Choose wall art and accent pieces that remind you of spring, such as flower prints and light vases. Keep your decor arrangements simple and minimalistic to keep with a flowy spring vibe. A great place to display your decor is on a bookcase or shelf, or built-in shelving around your fireplace so a simple dusting and rearranging could be all you need for an updated spring look. Another popular living room decor idea is refreshing your coffee table centerpiece by rearranging or replacing current decor. Include a tray, flower arrangements or maybe a new book or two to create a new look.
Add in Color
Choose spring pieces with color to replace your dark, neutral winter accessories. Pastels are a popular choice for spring with soft blues and pinks and hints of lavender or muted yellow. Select accent pillows, throws, vases and even new curtains with these colors to liven up your space. You can go one step further with soft patterns and textures to add interest to your living room. And if you are up for the challenge, try painting an accent wall in your living area to act as a focal point for the room. On the flip side, if you are not wanting a project on your hands, simply replacing winter creams with true whites makes a big difference in a room setting. When adding new colors, remember to keep to a certain color scheme for a consistent look. If decorating and picking out new color schemes are not your strong suit, then you can always consult with an interior decorator or interior designer to update your space.
Fresh flowers are a great way to add some life to an otherwise dull space and make a lovely table centerpiece. Flower arrangements, potted plants and other small hints of greenery throughout your living room are sure to brighten up your space and feel like spring has come indoors. Pair with a patterned vase for a well-thought-out design. Don’t have a green thumb? Try faux plants and flowers instead so you don’t have to worry about upkeep. Since they require no care, faux plants are perfect for putting into hard-to-reach places such as the top shelf of your bookcase.
A simple way to give your living room a spring feel is by utilizing fresh scents with candles, scented oils and even plug-in air fresheners. Flower scents like lavender, peonies and roses will make you feel like you’re outside while merely watching TV or reading a book on your couch. This allows you to have a multi-sensory spring experience instead of just a pretty looking space.
