Guest Post :: Adding Spring Touches to Your Decor

Our design intern Asra has such style, and has been such an asset to our office! So it was a no brainer to ask her to do a guest post talking all about how to spring up your interior decor - especially on International Women’s Day! Take it away, Asra! ~L.S.

The Porch

Your front porch is like a book cover to your home. It gives visitors the first impression of your unique style. Adding plants and flower pots will not only give a fresh and springy look to your entrance but will make a pleasant transition into your home. Add varied levels of height for interest by using inexpensive crates as containers for plants or opt for simple symmetry flanking the entry door.

The Entry

This probably goes without saying, but adding some indoor plants and flowers inside the house is an instant lift to the space. The entry is a good place to set the tone and add a touch of nature for warmth.

White + More White + Green

Spring is the perfect time to pull out all the whites, ivories and creams. Having varied colors of white will give it a clean and cozy look. Adding in some small touches of greenery (even via artwork!) will really brighten up the space. Note the subtle touches in this photo: the tiny little succulent on the coffee table, the white garden stool as a side table, and the springy leaves featured in the artwork.

Spring Your Walls into Action

Adding a floral or bright colored wallpaper will really change the look of your room. Don’t be afraid of pink! How gorgeous is this pastel floral bathroom, juxtaposed against the black and white retro detail?

Pop the Pillows

And if you’re not ready to commit to a whole wall of floral, what about just a little pop in the pillows? Put away those heavy dark pillows and add in some light, fun ones with spring motifs and flowers. They will instantly brighten up any room they are in.

Spring to the Center

Create a spring centerpiece or vignette for your center table. Use your imagination and pull out some pretty things you can use together to make a vignette with a spring feel.

Brighten the Bed

Changing the bed coverings to fun bright colors can make a big difference. And, it doesn’t have to look juvenile. Love this mix of the bright floral bedding against the more masculine leather headboard, and the boho touches of the moroccan rug and indoor plant, for that perfect “spring mix”.

Seasonal Table Linens

You can also add pop of color in your table linens - instant spring decor - and not a huge commitment!

Branch Out

If you’re not a pink poufy bouquet type of person, even just some cherry blossom branches add an instant pick me up to your decor. Try to imagine this entry vignette without this subtle floral touch. It would still be beautiful, but that added nod to nature takes it to a new level.
