The season of winter can seem interminable to many of us. Once we feel that hint of warmth and light enter back into the picture, we feel ourselves come alive and begin anticipating the long, sunny days of summer. The whites, grays, and blacks of winter begin to fade as the cerulean sky, emerald grass, and golden sunshine take center stage.
Why not bring these colorful seasonal changes into your home as well? Try these 6 ideas to help you welcome spring into your home!
Lighten Your Bedding – Warmer days will be upon us before we know it. Make sure that your bedding matches the light and the warmth on the horizon! Pack away the flannel sheets and choose a set of lighter, cooler sheets and a lighter comforter or quilt to adorn your bed. For those transitional times where the days are warmer and the nights are cooler, keep a warm blanket on the end of your bed to use to keep you cozy at night.
Add In Creative Bursts of Color – Let your home reflect the colorful setting of the outdoors this spring. You can replicate this feeling by placing creative pops of color throughout your home. For example, bring out brightly-colored dishtowels in your kitchen, and choose soap dispensers in a lemon or lime color. If you’re not a fan of bright colors, feminine and romantic colors and textures like pastels can work as well!
Bring in Fresh Flowers – Bring the outdoors inside by picking some of your favorite flowers! You can either purchase bouquets at a store or you can handpick some pretty wildflowers to put in your home. Try to create a consistent color scheme throughout your home or mix and match for a more rustic feeling. Potted plants, houseplants, and beautiful blooms will give your home an instant facelift!
Organize Your Mudroom – It’s time to pack away the winter boots, coats, and gloves and bring out the rain boots, jackets, and sandals. Once you wash and pack away your winter gear, give your mudroom a well-deserved scrub-down and unpack your spring and summer garb. You can also place beach towels, baskets, and picnic supplies out and ready whenever you want to enjoy some fun springtime activities!
Keep It Light and Airy – Spring is the time to give the windows in your home a good scrubbing inside and out. Spend some extra time on the windows so that the rays of sunshine aren’t filtered by dirt and dust. Don’t forget to dust the blinds and launder the curtains as well! Additionally, you can pack away your heavy drapes and curtains and bring out lightweight curtains in sheer materials to maintain that light and airy feeling in your home.
Take Inspiration From Nature – Aside from picking some beautiful flowers, you can bring a bit of nature inside your home to help you obtain that springtime feeling without breaking the bank. Try something unique like placing a bouquet of tall spring flowers into a thin vase and place the vase inside a pair of rain boots to create the perfect doorstop. You can also add small things like pebbles and shells inside colorful baskets. Find some items from nature that speak to you from your favorite trails and locations or right outside your own door!
