There’s more to a springtime home update than just the usual spring cleaning. Now is also a great time to give your home a fresh, new look inside and out. Check out these helpful home decorating tips for a few quick ways to chase away the winter blues and bring a new, sunny spring look to your home.

Go Green

Go greenBring a spring garden to mind by accenting your home with floral patterns. Rugs, furniture covers, and bedding in floral designs are great ways to bring some spring in. Don’t forget about real flowers, either. Fresh-cut flowers make beautiful interior home decor; flower arrangements can be used as dinner table centerpieces or placed on end tables or mantles for an outdoorsy spring feel.

Lighten Up Your Fabrics

Heavy, warm fabrics can make it seem like winter is lingering. Get rid of the atmosphere of keeping out the cold by changing out winter bedding, kitchen towels, drapes, and pillows made of fabrics like wool and flannel. Instead, try lighter fabrics like cotton and linen in fresh, light colors—whites, light neutrals, and pastels.

Add Some Color

Add colorThere are many ways to add a splash of fun spring color to your home. New pieces of art with bright hues or spring motifs can liven up bare walls. Consider adding new accents to your living room: pillows, vases, lamps, and other accessories in spring shades can make your home feel fresh and new. You might even want to repaint a room—or area of your room—to bring some spring brightness inside.

A Little Goes a Long Way

Adding more decor can sometimes make a home seem darker and more insulated from the outside. If you think that using more accents or new patterns will make your home feel cluttered, you might want to try removing area rugs, tablecloths, or other usual accessories instead. This can give your home a neater, airier look in springtime.
