It’s starting. It’s just around the corner. We may take a few steps back before it’s in full force, but spring is biting at the heels of winter. When you are tired of the gloom and doom, of the dark winter skies and the cold dry wind chafing your cheeks, there are ways to speed up the process with DIY spring home decor. Here are 5 foolproof ways to bring spring into your home with these easy spring decorating ideas.
Spring Home Decor Ideas
1. Flowers, Flowers, and More Flowers
Real flowers and plants are always the first choice but there are so many alternative floral options these days. A grouping of small vases spreads out an otherwise single bouquet and makes a big impact. If you don’t have a green thumb there are very realistic looking silk florals and leaves that are easy to find. I am partial to topiaries and fruit trees myself.
2. Paper Wall Art
For more spring season decoration ideas add a paper floral arrangement to a big, blank wall space. Etsy has an array of choices of light and airy paper wall art in every possible color combination and style of bud. This white blossom floral can be purchased in sizes to fit a small space or span across a huge room.
3. Removable Wallpaper
Removable wallpaper is a fun way to make a huge change to a space that is not permanent or expensive. Imagine your entire entryway covered in flowers or vines. I know your space has been feeling extra bare after removing all of the holiday decorations, so here’s a way to cheer it back up for the spring season. Removable wallpaper is an easy DIY spring home decor project. You can fill an entire wall, add just a touch here and there, or create a window by hanging a frame with a smaller removable wallpaper mural inside it. I have lately seen some using wallpaper with a splash of water color that look amazing. It’s also a great spring bedroom decorating idea.
Let’s be clear, Lucite isn’t going anywhere. It is a perfect way to modernize a traditional room and really lighten the feeling of the space. In my opinion it goes with just about everything and can be found in many different styles. There’s a wide variety of price levels as well, so if you don’t have a big budget but would like to add some clear acrylic to your home you will be able to find something that will work. Spring living room decorating ideas include an extra large sofa paired with a Lucite cocktail table to open up the space. The Louis Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck for Kartell is iconic and very reasonable for the style points it adds to a room.
At this time of year, everyone introduces porcelain pieces for the spring holidays and flowery weather. Whether these are vases, frames, a whole new set of china or even just an accent, porcelain will add lightness and fun to your home. Hanging plates on a wall is a time-old tradition but takes a modern turn when you hang a piece that is more avant garde. You can use a pretty plate under a planter or on a table filled with nuts or candies. Arrange a grouping of candles on a serving platter. The best part is you don’t have to make a big commitment because one important piece will transform your look. As with anything you do in your home, have fun with these spring home decor ideas, and let your mood be your guide. You are the one who spends the most time in your home, so fill it with what you love.
