Spring Into Happy With These Home Decor Tips

This is a guest post written by Cassie Brewer.

Spring has sprung and with the new season comes the opportunity to create a new and happier atmosphere for your home. The darkness and drudge of winter has come to pass. Creating a brighter and clearer space can help you create a happier mood in your home. Here are some spring home decor ideas to help bring the happy season in:

Change Your Dinnerware

Seems simple enough, but often just a shift in some dinnerware can help your home and guests feel the spring season. Changing your dinnerware to even just a different color such as pastels or incorporating some floral patterned plates, can help you also enjoy your meals more. Spring is the beginning of barbeque season and is a great way to finally get those dinner parties going.

Bring In The Florals

Spring always means the beginning of flowers blooming and bringing the happy spring season into your home can brighten up your home’s mood. Using fresh flowers to decorate your home also means keeping up with their care. Making sure your flowers are fresh and smelling great will ensure your home a happy spring atmosphere. 

Change Up Your Color Scheme

Spring does not just mean florals for decorating, it also means bright and vibrant colors to help transition your home from the muted colors of winter. Changing your home’s color scheme might seem overwhelming, but even just creating a bright or pastel accent wall in your living room can change the mood of the room almost instantly.

Smell Like Spring

Your senses are often what can change your mood. Not only do you have to make sure you are looking at spring decor, but you want to bring in the scent of spring into your home. Using candles or essential oils, consider scenting your home with fresh citrus smells or the mild smelling florals such as lily or jasmine. Florals can often be overwhelming so make sure you choose scents that are not just the smell of the garden but also are fresh.

Brighten Up Your Space

To help bring some good feeling into your home be sure to let in as much natural light as possible. Consider changing your curtains to lighter fabrics that can both keep your privacy but still let in the sun. You can also invest in softer eco-friendly white lights that help mimic the natural light of the sun to create a softer lighting. Also consider adding more mirrors to your space to help light be evenly distributed throughout the home.

Re-organize Your Clutter

Spring cleaning is a healthy practice to help clear out the clutter in your home. This can also bring in some opportunities for new storage ideas that also double as decoration. Try finding some vintage dressers or trunks that can double as tasteful decor and practical storage space.

Spring is the season of renewal and part of that can take place in your home. Clearing your space of heavy winter fabrics and replacing them with lighter fabrics such as cotton or linen can give your home that light happy spring feeling. Soak in the spring sun and flowers, not just outdoors but in your very own home.
