Sprucing things up in your house with the changing seasons is one of the best ways of keeping your mood fresh and avoiding boredom. Think of your home’s interior as a way of expressing yourself, and with the changing seasons (and most likely some spring cleaning) you can make a few simple changes to your surroundings that will make your day-to-day life brighter overall. Check out our favorite design ideas below to bring spring to your home.
Change Up Your Bedding
Your bedroom should be your safe haven, the place that expresses your personality the most. Changing up your winter bedding with floral or pastel toned sheets and pillows can help you welcome the warmer months with open arms and a clearer mind. If you don’t want to completely change your whole bedding, you can simply go for some brighter accents like a throw or cushions to place on top of your existing bedding. Go for lilac, coral, pink, turquoise or baby blue bed sheets to keep your bed decorations crisp!
Inject Some Greenery
Bringing the outdoors indoors is one of the best ways of welcoming spring. Allow your home to blossom by having some low maintenance succulents, cacti, or flowers dotted around your home. If you are not ready for the care that comes with real plants, simply buy some faux versions to add a splash of greenery instead.
Light Up Your Garden
If you are lucky to have some outdoor space in your home, you will probably be using it a lot more as the weather gets warmer. Some simple fairy lights can completely change up the feel of your outer space, even to a small balcony, making it much cozier and inviting.
DIY Spring Spray

Plates and Bowls

Coffee Table Books
