Decorating Your Home For Spring

Decorating your home for spring?  The trends for spring home décor are brighter, newer and fresher.  According to Oprah.com, Decorate for Spring: 10 Tips from 10 Different Designers, redecorating for this sunny season can be inexpensive and simple to do. Check out the tips below for spring that will give you that custom new home feel!

  • Do a Three-Second Scan: With a pen and notepad, scan each room in your home and list three things that you are willing to change.  This will start the redecorating process.
  • Bring in Fresh White Accents: White will automatically brighten the room.
  • Add Simple Chic, Shelving: Add some fun wallpaper in the back of a shelving section in your home.
  • Play with Punches of Yellow: When you think of spring the color yellow comes to mind.  Incorporate objects like yellow lemons in a white bowl or vase to brighten your kitchen.
  • Perk Up Your Pillows: Replace your pillows with brightly colored ones.  Mix in some bold prints to your room to add personality.
  • Get Crafty and Repaint Furniture: Take your antique furniture and give it a new look.  This could become a spring project that would be fun for the whole family.
  • Add Accents and Simple Succulents: Plants can be hard to maintain.  Succulents live longer and are great accents to add life to an accessory in your house.
  • Tweak Your Table Settings:  Another aspect of spring is the joys of being outdoors in nature.  Add spring place card holders and decorated plates that remind us of the season.
  • Transform Your Slipcovers:  Invest in white slipcovers for your chairs. Even though it is an investment up front, it is cheaper in the long wrong because you can customize these chairs as often as you like.  Attaching runners to your chairs are cheap and very simple to do.
  • Keep it Airy and Light: Remove the heavy drapes and stick to sheer material.  To save money, go to a local fabric store and create your own drapes.  Decorate the room with the idea of the beach, flower and cottage scene.
