How to Brighten Up Your Home This Spring

Spring is the perfect time to give your home a fresh new look. The longer days and warmer weather inspire us to open up our homes and welcome in the new season. Follow these tips to refresh your home decor and bring in the bright, cheerful vibes of spring.

Open up your windows

Let the fresh air and sunlight in! Open up those curtains and blinds first thing in the morning to let natural light flood your rooms. Darkness and stale air can make winter-worn homes feel gloomy. Fresh air and sunlight are invigorating and will instantly brighten things up.

I like to open all the windows in my home and let the spring breezes blow through. It’s amazing how airing out the house lifts my spirits after being cooped up all winter. Don’t forget to open up those windows on warmer days to freshen up your home.

Add fresh flowers and plants

Nothing ushers in spring like fresh greenery and blooms. Pick up some spring flowers like tulips, daffodils or hyacinths and display them in vases around your home. I love to place a big vase of flowers on my dining table or kitchen island.

You can also pot up some cheery spring plants like pansies, primroses or flowering herbs for your front porch or windowsills. Caring for these living things and watching them grow will give you a boost of energy. Having fresh florals and plants indoors is an easy way to infuse springtime vibes into your home.

Lighten up your color palette

During winter we often turn to darker, moodier colors in our home decor. Warm up your home with spring’s fresh color palette. Pastels, floral prints, mint greens, sunny yellows, robin’s egg blue – these cheerful spring tones will instantly lighten up the look and feel of every room.

Some easy ways to weave in spring colors are with throw pillows, table linens, towels, wreaths, candles or fresh flowers. You can paint an accent wall in a lighter, brighter hue. Swap out heavier curtains for breezy linen or lace. Add simple pops of color throughout your home with spring’s palette.

Declutter and clean

Now is the perfect time for a deep clean and decluttering session. Rid your home of dust and clutter that accumulated during the winter. Wash windows, wipe down walls, vacuum under furniture, clean out closets. A thorough home cleaning and getting rid of clutter will make your home look and feel fresh.

Decluttering and organizing also clears your mind and lifts your mood. Pack up off-season clothes and items and store them away. Donate unused items so they can find new homes. Your home will feel brand new again!

Style with natural textures

Incorporate natural elements and textiles to complement spring’s beauty. Wood, rattan, straw, linen, cotton – these natural materials and textures add warmth and welcome in the new season.

Display wooden serving bowls filled with fruit on your kitchen counter. Roll out a fluffy cotton area rug in your living room. Add a rattan or straw pendant light over your dining table. Use baskets and trays for storage. Layer in nature-inspired textures to give your home an earthy, organic feel.

Update artwork and accents

Freshen up your walls with updated art and decor that fittingly welcomes spring. Floral and nature photography prints are perfect choices. Or frame pressed wildflowers or botanical art prints.

Swap heavier, darker framed photos with lighter wood, bamboo or metal frames. Display white dishes or glassware in your shelves instead of darker ceramics. Add accents with natural materials like stone, wood, wicker, marble or shells. Update artwork and home accents to complement the season.

Style with pastel hues

Pastels perfectly capture the essence of spring. Soft, lighter versions of colors like pink, green, yellow, blue and lavender. Use pastels in your home decor to create a light and airy feel.

Some easy ways to incorporate pastels – use them in artwork, pillows, rugs, bedding, towels, flowers or dishes. Repaint a piece of furniture in a muted pastel like a light robin’s egg blue. Add a soft pink or yellow throw blanket to your living room. Mix and match different pastel tones to keep it visually interesting. Pastels add cheerful pops of color and evoke the feeling of spring.

With a little creativity and effort, you can easily breathe new life into your home this spring. Refreshing your decor doesn’t have to cost much money. Little updates and infusing fresh, natural elements will get your home ready to welcome warmer weather and longer sunny days. Follow these tips and ideas to give your home a bright new look this spring!
