Spring has arrived, and while the weather in Ontario hasn’t quite turned to sunshine and warm breezes as of yet, it’s still the perfect time to start annual Spring rituals like decluttering, organizing, and my favourite – redecorating!
Refreshing your home with Spring decor is something I always recommend! Not only is it a fun activity, seeing your home decorated for Spring can boost your mood and help pull you out of the dark winter funk!
Now, most of you hear the word “redecorating” and automatically see dollar signs… but that doesn’t have to be the case! If you already have a good foundation that consists of furniture and accessories that easily transition (like a couch, dining set, pillow inserts, serving trays, and neutral vases and vessels) it’s easy to decorate! At bare minimum, your home only needs these 5 items to look fresh for Spring!
My 5 Must-Have Spring Decor Items
Whether it’s casually thrown on a bed, couch, or armchair or purposefully styled in a basket, or on a blanket ladder, throws are any easy way to add colour and texture to a room! Choose a neutral and classic design to use during all seasons or try a pop of colour to brighten your space!
As someone who is obsessed with candles, I can tell you they are a quick and inexpensive way to update a space! Not only do they smell great, they can help set the mood in a room.
Faux Floral Sprigs
Let’s face it, buying fresh flowers every couple of days can get expensive – especially if you are outfitting several rooms in your house! Faux florals have come a long way (tip: look for ones that are labeled “real touch”) and while they might be expensive in the upfront, you can store them and decorate with them every year! Simply arrange in a neutral vase or jar and BAM… instant Spring!
One of the easiest updates for Spring has to be artwork! Look for pieces that are unique and invoke a spring-like feeling. Just remember to measure your existing frames and buy new artwork accordingly… you don’t want to make it more difficult or expensive by choosing artwork that is a new size or requires a different frame!
Nothing updates a room faster than throw pillows! If you already have a good quality insert, switching out the covers is also an option! For Spring, try experimenting with bold floral patterns paired with soft neutrals like blush and pale blue; your living room and bedrooms with thank you!
