Spring and decorating go hand in hand. After a harsh winter full of dreariness and cold, spring with its warmer weather and sunny days is welcomed enthusiastically. Once the spring cleaning is done, a natural progression is to overhaul a home’s decor. A hot trend in home decorating is the mimicking of the spring’s beauty.
Spring is best known not just for its fine weather but also for the abundance of flowers. Using nature as a focal point of home decorating is perfect for this season. One way to incorporate flowers is to use floral prints and brightly colored fabrics. Bring out those yellows, greens, pinks, oranges and lavenders and let these colors remind you of blooming flowers. Have these colors as well as floral prints in your cushions, draperies, curtains, window blinds, throw pillows and whatever you can put fabrics on. Your house will be bursting with happy colors that you will never feel down and blue.
Flowerpots can be function and stylish. A fun and inexpensive project is to create a flowerpot using Sun N Shade outdoor fabric. The material is long-lasting yet breathable. There are so many options from bright colors to earthy, muted tones. Some pretty floral patterns include Briana and Somerset Botanical. Sun N Shade can also be used outdoors for sun umbrellas and lounge cushions.
Another elegant way to add greenery to the home is to add plants. These should be preferably real live plants instead of fake plants. Houseplants purify the air by putting oxygen into the room. One potted plant per 100 square feet will clean the air in the room. Another wonderful approach is to display lovely spring flowers, such as just-clipped lilac branches or peonies, in a vase. Flowers are able to lift the spirit with its awe-inspiring splendor. The colors of flowers also convey moods; soft muted colors such as ivories and soft pinks suggest serenity, peacefulness. Vivid colors can energize an environment. Flowers can be used to complement the current color scheme or used as a contrast.
A favorite way of adding colors is to use area rugs. Spring is about happiness, energy, nature and life! Bringing colors to your home is bringing spring to your life. Don’t stop with flowers. Decorate with colorful area rugs. Choose fun shapes like oblong and circle, go with various sizes from big rugs for cushioning your furniture set or huge center table, to small ones as base for your side table or as a decorative item in your hallway. There are fabrics that go well with spring season such as bamboo, sisal and cotton. There are also the more elegant Persian and Oriental kinds. If you wish to spend less but be more diverse in colors and patterns, synthetic rugs are aplenty.
Spring home decorating can be easily achieved by all. The use of soft colors such as yellows, light blues, light greens, rose and lavender are inspired by the beauty of the season. Floral patterns whether in furniture or accents can pull a room together. Adding greenery also is nature-inspired while softening a room’s look. Area rugs can mimic the color and soft shapes of spring. Bring the outdoor inside and enjoy spring.
