Simple Spring Decorating Tips for 2012
Spring is here! Time to dust off and freshen up! Right now it’s all about livening up your space for the new season. It’s time to add a few splashes of color and life to your home. Here are our favorite trends for the season.
Spring cleaning, not so fun, eh? It doesn’t have to be difficult. Start with the basics. De-clutter. Clean out your closets. If you haven’t worn the item in over a year, donate it! Someone else can put it to better use. Onto the bedroom, kitchen, and living room. Do you really need lots of stuff sitting out on display? Take everything off your nightstands, dresser, kitchen counters, and side tables. What do you really need sitting out? Keep your favorite photographs of friends and family out, but hide the little trinkets and knick-knacky stuff. As for the kitchen, to keep it fresh and clean, try to keep the counters clear of junk. You don’t want to display too much. Have a mixed balance of displayed items and hidden items.
Goodbye winter blues, hello spring pastels and brights! It’s simple to revamp your living room for spring. Simply hide your pillows (or use a pillow cover on them) and replace them with a playful and fresh and uplifting scheme. Add new artwork to energize the walls!
Add a fun and playful pattern!
We’re seeing lots of chevron and Ikat. Find a few bold prints you love and mix them with a more subtle print. You don’t want to go too pattern crazy. This is an easy way to give you’re room a quick makeover.
Add some life to the room!
Nothing says spring like fresh flowers. Hydrangeas, peonies, tulips, calla lilies, we love them all! Add a little citrus to the arrangement too. Slice some limes or oranges and place them around the bottom of your vase.
