Spring and decorating go hand in hand. After a harsh winter full of dreariness and cold, spring with its warmer weather and sunny days is welcomed enthusiastically. Once the spring cleaning is done, a natural progression is to overhaul a home’s décor. A hot trend in home decorating is the mimicking of the spring’s beauty.
The splendor of spring is visualized by blooming flowering and trees; the outdoors can be brought indoors in one’s home décor. The easiest way to infuse flowery patterns at home is to purchase a floral sofa, armchair, draperies, paintings and artwork. Florals can be found in so many patterns, textures and color schemes. Other floral accents can be purchased inexpensively and the variety is staggering. Examples include linens, towels, throws and sofa pillows. Light colors such as yellows, pinks, pale blues and lavenders best mirror the season.
Flowerpots can be function and stylish. A fun and inexpensive project is to create a flowerpot using Sun N Shade outdoor fabric. The material is long-lasting yet breathable. There are so many options from bright colors to earthy, muted tones. Some pretty floral patterns include Briana and Somerset Botanical. Sun N Shade can also be used outdoors for sun umbrellas and lounge cushions.
Another elegant way to add greenery to the home is to add plants. These should be preferably real live plants instead of fake plants. Houseplants purify the air by putting oxygen into the room. One potted plant per 100 square feet will clean the air in the room. Another wonderful approach is to display lovely spring flowers, such as just-clipped lilac branches or peonies, in a vase. Flowers are able to lift the spirit with its awe-inspiring splendor. The colors of flowers also convey moods; soft muted colors such as ivories and soft pinks suggest serenity, peacefulness. Vivid colors can energize an environment. Flowers can be used to complement the current color scheme or used as a contrast.
Area rugs can also be a reflection of spring’s exuberance. Versatility is a main advantage of decorating with area rugs. They are useful as well as fashionable. The variety of area rugs, whether it is styles, sizes, price or materials, is boundless. Some examples include Persian, oriental, bamboo, cotton, wool, sisal and synthetic. Cheery colors such as lime green and yellow are an ideal representation of the season. The shape of area rugs can also be compatible with spring decorating. Area rugs that are oval or round shaped can soften a rectangular space. Additionally, oval or round shapes projects a softer look than a square shaped rug.
Spring home decorating can be easily achieved by all. The use of soft colors such as yellows, light blues, light greens, rose and lavender are inspired by the beauty of the season. Floral patterns whether in furniture or accents can pull a room together. Adding greenery also is nature-inspired while softening a room’s look. Area rugs can mimic the color and soft shapes of spring. Bring the outdoor inside and enjoy spring.
