With the arrival of Spring, and the promise of warmer weather on the horizon, now is the perfect time to begin updating your main living areas to reflect the changing of seasons. To help inspire and get you started on your indoor oasis, we’ve compiled 6 simple ideas that will help your home come alive this spring!

Update your accessories
Lay winter to rest, along with decor that speaks to the colder seasons. Swap dark, cozy, and “wintery” items with lighter accessories that are full of natural texture. Layer in these textures in the form of rattan or wicker baskets, leather bound books, soft brass accessories, etc. Consider adding in a new piece of artwork that features botanical prints and/or lighter colors.

Finally, an excuse to replace the sofa?! Permission granted. There is no better time than during the changing of seasons and a good room refresh to also update your furniture. Look for sofas, loveseats, and upholstered chairs that speak to your personal style, but also take the opportunity to explore more neutral and up-to-date color pallets and styles that will help carry your home from season to season.
Refresh Your Textiles
Brighten up your textiles with fresh spring patterns and complimentary colors. Change out cable knit, wool, faux fur and other wintery fabrics with lighter alternatives. Change out your throw pillows for a fresh update. Consider replacing your area rug and assess your draperies. Is the material too heavy for spring? Worn out? Does the pattern or colors clash with your new spring color pallet?

Introduce Greens and Flowers
Nothing speaks to the arrival of Spring, better than cut flowers and greenery. Stow away your evergreen stems and select plenty of faux and real greenery to really liven up your living space. Think ferns, succulents, moss, and other spring appropriate plants and flowers. It really is quite remarkable that just a few fresh stems can make such an impact!

Add or change out lamps
Consider changing out lamps or lampshades in a fresh new design or color. Add a floor lamp or table lamp to brighten up a table or corner of your room. Updating these functional decor elements will give your room a whole new look and feel.

Embrace the spring clean
Throw open the windows, burn a spring scented candle, and embrace the newness and freshness brought on by the changing of seasons. Tackle your spring cleaning list with vigor! Get rid of things that don’t serve you or your household anymore and make room for a new chapter. Nothing dampens a room refresh like shuffling around stuff that isn’t useful anymore!
