Add Some Color to Home Your Decor This Spring By Changing These Things
After a winter filled with all things warm and fuzzy, it’s time to spruce up your apartment for spring. With sunnier days and warmer weather on the horizon, it’s a great time to lighten up your space and bring some new life to it. Color is a perfect way to do that! Here are a few simple ways to incorporate some color and give your home a fresh look.
All winter long your bedroom was probably a key space for staying warm and maintaining that cozy feeling, but now it’s time to lighten things up. Your bedding is a great place to start.
If you have a duvet, think about purchasing a new duvet cover in a bright spring color. If you have bedspread or comforter that you love, can you add a throw blanket or a bed scarf in an accent color that has you thinking of spring? Those accent pieces can brighten up your bedroom without making huge changes.
You can also consider changing out the throw pillows for brightly colored patterns that complement your current bedding.
And, while nobody but you may see them, consider changing your linens. Put away the flannels and grab some lightweight cotton sheets in vibrant colors like lemon yellow or sky blue.
Whoever said, “Flowers can’t solve all the problems, but they’re a great start,” definitely knew what they were talking about. Spring is the ideal season to bring in some gorgeous bouquets to brighten up your home.
Tulips are an obvious choice in the spring. And, with so many gorgeous colors available you’ll probably find yourself picking up several bunches. Lilacs, daisies, and hydrangeas are also excellent choices.
Don’t forget to think about how you’ll display your flowers. A bright yellow vase can be the perfect accent to lovely purple lilacs, or a neutral color can make your flowers stand out even more.
You may or may not have a rug under your kitchen table, but this is an ideal way to add color to your kitchen – a space that can often be overlooked when it comes to updating your home decor. You can find some great art deco patterns with a spring color palette if that’s your style. Or, perhaps, you’d like a floral design to go with the season.
If you don’t want to put a rug under your dining table, think about adding a bright kitchen floor mat by your sink. This will not only bring a small pop of color to your kitchen but will also provide some cushion for your feet when you stand by the sink.
Change Your Art
When it comes to your living room, it’s costly to change out major pieces like a sofa or chair, but you can change your art and easily change the look of your space. Many of your off-price retailers (like TJ Maxx and Marshall’s) have great selections of art that won’t break the bank. Seek out bright colors that will draw your eye to the art and away from parts of the room that you are not able to change or still remind you of winter.
Many of these tips can be carried out throughout your entire home. Bright pillows or a blanket can be added to your sofa. A new sunshine yellow rug might look perfect in your bedroom. And flowers are a great addition to any room.
