After months of cold, rainy, and maybe even snowy weather, many of us feel the urge to revamp and refresh our homes in anticipation of the new season (hence the term “spring cleaning”)… I know I do! It can often be difficult to know where to begin when wanting to freshen up your space.
If you’re looking to spruce up your house this spring without breaking the bank or making a drastic change, here are 10 easy ways to refresh your space!
Sprinkle in Brighter Spring Colors (Subtly)
I know, dark cozy colors feel so right in the winter, but it’s time to swap them out for some brighter neutrals or pastels. Changing your area rug for something brighter is such an easy way to incorporate a pop of color into your space.
The Jade Natural area rug from my Angela Rose x Loloi collection is the perfect rug for those modern home designs that love dressing up in neutral tones. It is so versatile, which is why it is one of the most popular rugs from the Aubrey Collection. It has a chunky border and is full of subtle vibes.
Decorate with Plants
One of the simplest ways to refresh your home for spring and update a room is by adding a houseplant or fresh bouquet of flowers. Decorating with plants is an easy way to freshen up and elevate every room in your home. You could easily add a floral centerpiece onto your kitchen table or a nightstand-friendly house plant to a nightstand.
For those of you who don’t have a green thumb (aka me) you can always decorate with faux plants! Faux plants are often inexpensive and if done the right way, they can look extremely convincing.
4 tips for making faux plants look realistic:
- Choose your plants wisely
- Add some dirt to the pot
- Fluff the branches
- Place in the right space
Looking to add greenery to your home but don’t know where to start? Here is a great faux olive tree option that comes with an affordable price tag.
Over the years, wallpaper has made a comeback and I agree it should be here to stay! Wallpapers are one of the easiest ways to change up and upgrade a space in your home. Did you know that you can get removable wallpaper? In my dining room, I wanted to create a Great Hall inspired by Harry Potter for Thanksgiving. My boys LOVE Harry Potter! There are so many awesome seasonal wallpaper options! I would suggest using a floral or bright abstract option!
When you’re just starting out with wallpaper, there are a lot of things to think about! I am now a self-proclaimed wallpaper expert and have broken down how to use wallpaper in a previous post.
Change Your Shower Curtains
Changing up your shower curtains is a super simple way to make it seem like you’ve updated your entire bathroom. Pick a light and bright style that matches your existing bathroom decor. Here are a few of my favorite shower curtains this season!
Update Your Hardware
Swapping your knobs and pulls for something more modern is a great way to update your furniture from the kitchen cabinets to your dresser. I have been loving the look of these brass cabinet knobs and the brass hardware I used all over my kitchen. You can also go a step further and make your hardware look more aged with this super easy antique brass hack to upgrade your hardware!
Liven Up Your Porch
Are you guilty of still having your wintery doormat on your porch? Outdoor decor does not have to be saved for the holidays! Swap out your holiday doormat for a brighter and more cheerful one like this mat from West Elm! You can also add a spring wreath like this one from Pottery Barn to your door as a reminder that all seasons should be celebrated!!
Swap Your Pillows
Storing all of last season’s pillows is quite the undertaking, but that’s what pillow covers were created for! Pillow covers are such an easy way to instantly switch up your spring decor. The covers don’t have to be expensive either! Amazon has great options. I made a list of my favorite spring pillow covers here!
Switch Out Your Candles
It’s time to switch out your Gingerbread holiday candles for something a little more spring-friendly. Candles are a great way to liven up any room of the house. If you’re someone who loves scents go for a floral or citrus candle, but if you’re someone who can’t stand smells, go for an unscented candle in a pretty pastel jar.
Upgrade Your Lighting
Is your ceiling still holding an old light fixture you’ve had for years? Spring is a great time to rejuvenate your ceiling with something a little lighter and brighter. A light chandelier transforms a space like a living room or dining room and acts as a beautiful centerpiece for your ceiling.
Switch Up Your Wall Art
Exchanging a few art pieces around your house is a great way to liven up your spaces. One of my favorite ways to cover walls, especially in the bedrooms, is to hang tapestries. They are so low-maintenance and easy to switch out whenever you feel the need!
