Give Your Space a Quick Pick-Me-Up With Spring-Inspired Accessories

Springing into a New Season of Style

As the cold winter winds start to subside and the first buds of springtime begin to bloom, I can’t help but feel a surge of excitement for the change of seasons. Doesn’t there just seem to be an extra spring in your step (pun intended) when the world around you starts to come alive again?

For me, the arrival of spring is the perfect time to breathe new life into my living space. Out with the heavy, moody hues of winter and in with the light, airy, and rejuvenating tones of the season. And you know what that means? It’s time to start accessorizing!

Whether you’re looking to completely overhaul your home’s aesthetic or just want to add a few subtle yet impactful touches, spring-inspired accessories can be the perfect way to give your space a quick pick-me-up. From playful floral patterns to nature-inspired textures, the decorative possibilities are endless.

Liven Up Your Living Room

Let’s start in the heart of the home – the living room. This is where you and your guests will likely spend the most time, so it’s the perfect canvas to showcase your springtime style.

One of my favorite ways to instantly refresh a living room is with some new throw pillows. Swap out your heavy, moody velvet or wool options for lighter fabrics like linen or cotton in bright, happy colors and patterns. Think florals, stripes, or even geometric designs with springtime vibes.

***Fun Fact: Did you know that the average person fluffs their throw pillows 2-3 times per day? That’s a lot of pillow action, so you’ll want ones that are both stylish and comfy.***

Another easy living room upgrade is to bring in some greenery. Whether it’s a statement-making floor plant, a delicate hanging ivy, or a collection of bud vases with fresh blooms, adding natural elements can instantly lift the energy of the space. Bonus points if you can find plants that thrive in your particular living room conditions.

And don’t forget about the coffee table! This is the perfect spot to style a springtime vignette with decorative trays, candlesticks, flowers, and other pretty accents. The key is to mix different shapes, textures, and heights to create visual interest.

Refresh Your Bedroom Retreat

Now let’s move on to the most personal space in your home – the bedroom. This is where you go to relax, recharge, and dream, so it’s important that it reflects your springtime sensibilities.

Start with the bed, of course. Swap out your heavy comforter or duvet for a lighter, airier option in a springtime-inspired hue like soft blue, pale green, or delicate lavender. Add some coordinating throw pillows and a cozy knit blanket at the end of the bed for a layered, inviting look.

Fabric Properties Ideal for Spring
Linen Lightweight, breathable, crisp Bedding, curtains, upholstery
Cotton Soft, natural, easy to care for Bedding, rugs, window treatments
Eyelet Delicate, airy, feminine Curtains, bed skirts, accent pieces

And let’s not forget about the walls! Swap out any heavy, dark artwork for lighter, brighter pieces that complement your springtime color palette. Or consider hanging some botanically-inspired wall hangings or dried flower arrangements for an organic, nature-inspired feel.

Finally, accessorize your nightstands with some springtime-approved pieces like a modern table lamp, a vase of fresh flowers, and a decorative tray to corral your essentials.

Spruce Up Your Bathroom Oasis

The bathroom is often an overlooked space when it comes to seasonal decorating, but it’s the perfect place to incorporate those springtime vibes. After all, this is where you start and end each day, so why not make it feel extra bright and refreshed?

One of the easiest bathroom updates is to swap out your towels, shower curtain, and bathmat. Look for fluffy white towels, a light and airy patterned shower curtain, and a plush bath mat in a springtime-inspired hue. These simple swaps can make a big visual impact.

***Pro Tip: Coordinate your bathroom linens with the colors and patterns you’re using throughout the rest of your home for a cohesive, pulled-together look.***

Don’t forget about the accessories! Add a decorative tray to hold your soaps and lotions, a plant or two for some natural greenery, and a vase of fresh flowers to really drive home that spring aesthetic.

And if you’re feeling extra motivated, consider giving your vanity or shelving a quick refresh with a coat of light, airy paint. A bright, cheerful bathroom is the perfect way to start and end your day.

Sprinkle in Springtime Scents

No springtime refresh is complete without considering the sense of smell. Infusing your home with fresh, uplifting scents can instantly lift your mood and make your space feel more inviting.

One of my go-to springtime scents is lemon. Whether it’s a diffuser, a candle, or a room spray, the bright, citrusy aroma always puts me in a cheerful, energized state of mind. Floral scents like jasmine, gardenia, or lilac are also lovely springtime options.

***Fun Fact: Studies have shown that certain scents can have a significant impact on our mood and emotions. Lemon, for example, has been linked to increased feelings of happiness and reduced stress levels.***

And don’t be afraid to get creative with your scent sources. Simmer some fresh herbs and citrus peels on the stove, or place a bowl of dried lavender buds in a sunny spot. The possibilities are endless!

Bringing it All Together

Okay, so we’ve covered a lot of ground when it comes to refreshing your space with springtime accessories. But the key is to not get too caught up in perfection.

The beauty of this seasonal style update is that it’s meant to be fun and approachable. Don’t be afraid to experiment, mix and match, and let your personal aesthetic shine through. After all, your home should be a true reflection of you.

***Pro Tip: When it comes to accessorizing, start small and layer in new pieces over time. That way, you can slowly build up your springtime style without feeling overwhelmed.***

So go ahead, open up those windows, let the fresh air in, and start accessorizing! Your space (and your mood) is about to get a whole lot brighter.
