Spring Ahead...With Your Interior Design
Spring is just around the corner and with it comes a whole spread of design opportunities. So tuck away the dark throw pillows and dust off your favorite vase; your home doesn’t have to get stuck in seasons past. Incorporate these design elements into your space to “spring ahead” with your interior design.
Nothing says spring quite like a hand-cut bouquet of flowers. New blooms remind us that even the darkest winters are followed by renewed life. Not only do flowers offer a beautiful landing spot for our eyes, they also share their fragrant aroma with all passers-by. You don’t have to completely redo your space in order to showcase these natural jewels. Subtle floral patterns can be included in throw pillows, art, and accent fabrics. Use varying types of flowers to complement the existing style of your room. Alexa Collins from Decorated Life suggests something elegant like peonies for formal living rooms and playful varieties like daffodils or sunflowers for kitchens. Head to your local market for fresh flowers you can change every week!
Springtime yields loads of new produce, you may as well put it on display! Choose citrus fruits with hearty peels to ensure that your décor doesn’t spoil the room–literally. Lemons, limes, and oranges can be displayed in centerpieces, containers, and wreaths throughout your home. Simple vessels made of clear glass or natural wood give the fruit a modest background on which to shine. Bright still-life paintings can be swapped in for some of your heavier pieces to give your room a renewed feeling. Looking for more fruit inspired décor ideas?

Whether it’s switching your duvet or rotating your art or lightening-up on your window hangings, the theme for spring is fresh. Get creative while doing your spring cleaning and switch the furniture around in your home. Nightstands can make simple end tables in your family room and bookshelves can be used as unique storage in your bathroom. Declutter your counters and sort through your attic or crawl space to see what hidden gems you may find. Styles are constantly cycling, so don’t be surprised if you find a piece you can use in a new way!
