Spring is the perfect time to liven up your home’s decor. If you are like most folks, you will be doing some major spring cleaning anyway. It is as good a time as ever to rearrange your home and update your look. The birth of new life outside will be matched by the birth of a new design scheme inside your home. If you are looking to create a beautiful new look, here some amazing spring decorating ideas to freshen up your home.
Brighten Things up With a Touch of Citrus
One of the best ways to add energy to your home for springtime is to update your decor with a lot of bright citrus colors. Adding citrus colors like lime, orange, and yellow, will fill your home with energy. These colors work best as accents instead of wall colors. Try adding citrus-colored items like pillow, curtains and rugs to a room to bring it to life. Certain colors can most certainly affect your mood, so be mindful of how you choose to use them.
Wallpaper Is Back
Wallpapers were looked down on for a few decades in design circles, but they are now back in a big way. One of the latest new developments in wallpaper is removable wallpaper. It eliminates the headaches when you feel like changing it up. There is also peel-and-stick wallpaper that makes it easy for anyone to work with. Adding some fresh floral wallpaper to your dining or living room will breathe new life into your home this spring.
Match Your Doors and Drawers to the Walls
With the reintroduction of wallpaper to designer’s toolkits, they have been experimenting with it in interesting ways. One of the most creative ways to use wallpaper is to place it on the doors or drawers of your cabinets and dressers in your home. When you echo a paper on the bedroom wall with paper on the doors of your dresser, it is a beautiful look that adds lovely texture to your design scheme.
Although they are designed for use on the ceiling, many interior designers are using them in a fresh way by placing rosettes on the walls of a home. Add rosettes in graduated shades of color and varying eyelines to create beautiful layouts that will get noticed.
Add a Barn Door
One of the hottest new trends right now is using barn doors inside the home. These beautiful barn doors can be used to replace existing doors when you mount them on a barn door track. This will make it easy to slide the barn door open and closed, and you will love the look that it adds to your home.
Bring out the Paintbrushes
There is no simpler or more powerful way to change your home’s decor than to paint. Adding a bright spring color to an accent wall or entire room in your house can change the whole mood in your home. Matching paint color to new accents you have added is always a great idea.
Pair Fruits and Flowers
You can place fruit in the base of a glass vase before you add flowers to enhance the decor of any room in your home, but it works especially well in the kitchen. Find some beautiful spring colored vases to show off. See my list of favorite spring flowers to use in those beautiful vases.
