Update Your Home With Hints of Spring
The blossoming plant life and steadily rising temperatures can only mean one thing: the spring season is officially here. If you’re looking for an excuse to redecorate your home, now is the perfect opportunity. Spring is all about the formation of new life along with bold, vibrant colors. Incorporating these characteristics into your home is a simple yet effective way to liven up the atmosphere with fun new designs.
Experiment With New Colors
Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold new colors in your home decorating efforts to achieve a spring-inspired atmosphere. Many homeowners never change the color of their walls after painting it, leaving it up for 5, 10 or even 15+ years. Even if you’re comfortable with the current colors of your home’s walls, however, you might find a new ‘favorite’ color scheme by testing the waters with new colors.
Consider your furniture, floor and decorative accessories, and choose a color that’s going to compliment these elements. Remember, spring is typically associated with vibrant colors — yellow, green, blue, orange, etc. — so try to focus your home decor around these colors.
Of course, we can’t talk about springtime home decor without mentioning the use of flowers. Flowers are a beautiful addition to any room or area inside the home, as they bring an array of natural colors and subtle designs to the environment. Sure, they may not last as long as a houseplant, but flowers are still a powerful decorating accessory that’s perfect for the spring season.
Try filling up a glass vase with some colorful flowers that are native to your area and place them in a highly visible area, such as an end table, fireplace mantel or dining table.
New Lamp Shades
You don’t have to replace the table lamps in your home just to give them a new look. Instead, consider replacing the lampshades. A new lampshade only costs a fraction of the price of a new lamp, making it an inexpensive — and easy — way to create a new look inside your home.
So, what are some lampshade ideas to use inside your home this spring season? There are a countless number of ways to achieve a new look with your lampshade. From floral designs to plaid or stripes, have fun with your designs by choosing a bold lampshade that reflects the core values of your home. Just remember to choose a lampshade that matches with the surrounding elements in your home decor.
