The air is slowly warming, the sun is shining stronger and longer, and birds are chirping in the early morning. Spring is on its way, and thawing out from the months-long freeze can have you elated! Emerge from your wintery hibernation by stretching out the interior designer in your mind and adding some springy accents throughout your home. From bright pastels, to gleeful greens and open windows, your living room could use an update to spring into the new season. Here are our top 5 spring decorating ideas for 2018:
1. Succulents Galore
Trendy and adorable, succulents are the plant that’s relatively hard to kill if you don’t exactly have a green thumb. Succulents bring greenery inside, and you can find a variety of these cute little plants at home improvement stores for fair prices. Succulents can be planted in cute geometric pots, or in an extra glass jar—reduce, reuse, recycle!
2. Seasonal Flowers
One of the best parts about spring is the fragrant air. As flowers begin blooming, the world just seems happier! You can both see and smell flowers outside, so why not bring some inside! One of spring’s most aromatic flowers is hyacinth, which is a perennial plant that grows from a bulb. If you haven’t planted any bulbs in earlier seasons, you can typically find these bloomed flowers at a grocery store in a seasonal display. Other flowers that bloom only in the spring are daffodils, daisies and tulips. Bring them inside if you grow them in your garden, or pick up some faux flowers that you can bring back all year long!
3. Furniture Update
Nothing says spring cleaning like getting rid of that old, dilapidated sofa and welcoming a beautiful new piece of furniture! This cream-colored Aberdeen Premier Sofa by La-Z-Boy would look great in a room that’s complemented by vivacious spring colors. This sofa has scooped arms, a tufted back and high turned legs. Since it’s La-Z-Boy, you know it’s high quality that will last for years.
4. Curtain Replacement
One overlooked spring decorating idea is replacing curtains. While heavy curtains provide privacy, and are great at keeping the light out of your eyes in the morning, hulking curtains have no place in a space that’s been yearning for sunshine for the past few months! Swap out your old curtains with new translucent curtains that can brighten up the room with a lighter color, and let in sunlight. A pro tip that not many people realize is to affix the curtain rod about six inches from the top of the window. It should extend about a foot longer than each side of the window as well. This makes the window appear larger.
5. Pillow Covers
Rather than purchasing brand new pillows every time you want to update your space, consider buying seasonal pillow covers. They can neatly fold away with the changing seasons, and this way you can have accent pillows that complement the updated accessories throughout the room. Look for bright colors or pastels. Green hues can complement the greenery popping up outside, as well as the new succulents throughout your room.
