Ready for a change at home, but not one quite as big as moving to a new one? Changing up some of your décor might be just the thing you need this spring! Your home’s interior design can have a bigger impact on how you feel than you think! Trends change, seasons change, moods change, preferences change – if it’s been a while since you’ve updated the look of your home, it might just be the change you need to put a pep in your step this spring!
Give new life to your current space with some of these interior design updates inspired by spring:
Painting is one of the single most effective and accessible ways you can invigorate your home without having to put in a lot of money or effort. Light and airy colours are always in style, and if you’re feeling bold, consider giving your walls a fresh coat in shades like buttercup yellow, robin’s egg blue, or lavender. If you’re feeling particularly daring, you could even go for a pastel green or pink.
Start with one room, or do a statement wall – while these are beautiful colours, you don’t want to transform your home into an easter basket! Make choices you’ll want to keep for the foreseeable future.
Not feeling that enthusiastic about colour on the walls? A nice, crisp, off-white always freshens up a home.
If you’re sticking with white or neutral walls and are looking for other ways to add some colour, try using brightly-coloured fabrics or patterns, for example on couch cushions, in rugs, or prints for your walls.
Adding plants is another great way to inject some life into your home. Not only do they make it look more cheerful and welcoming, but they can also help improve your air quality! It’s a win-win. Try choosing plants that are nontoxic to any pets (a quick Google search will give you this info) and are easy to care for, like succulents, air plants, or philodendrons.
If you’re not sure where to put your plants, try using a plant stand or hanging them from the ceiling. You can also use plants to dress up an empty corner or create a focal point in a room.
Update Your Lighting
One of the quickest and easiest ways to change the look of a room is by updating your lighting. Consider swapping out your heavy, dark lamps for something more airy and delicate like a paper lantern or a rattan shade.
Add Some Art
One of the easiest ways to give your home a new look is by adding some new wall art. In the spring, you can go for bright and cheerful pieces that reflect the season’s mood. Try choosing artwork with floral or nature-inspired designs, bright colours, or light and airy textures.
If you’re not sure what type of art to choose, try browsing online galleries or going to an art fair. You can also find affordable pieces at local thrift stores or garage sales!
Adding texture is a great way to add visual interest to a room. In the spring, you can go for textures that are light and airy, like cotton or linen. You can also try using materials like rattan, wicker, or bamboo to create a natural look.
These are just a few ideas to help you give your home a fresh spring makeover. With a little bit of imagination, you can have a home that feels brand new – without having to move a single thing!
