Spring Decor Inspiration.

I was more than happy to see the end of Winter.
I don't think that I've ever mentioned that I grew up wanting to become a professional interior designer on the ol' blogaroo, but our first proper Spring day stirred that buried desire, and made me realize it’s time to move out of the cosy blanket and start to think about how I want my room to look and feel this season.
 
Spring always brings with it a sense of new life, delicate beauty and renewal.  As the seasons change, our moods change and thus, our homes change.
Below are 8 different ways you can welcome Spring into your home!
 
 
1. Greenery
Okay, this one might seem a bit obvious but it wouldn’t have been right to leave it off the list! Houseplants are a great way to freshen up our homes and add a pop of colour and life to otherwise empty areas.

And if you don’t have a green thumb like Christie the plant murderer over here,
other greenery options do exist. Consider preserved boxwood or a simple vase of leafy stems.

2. Fresh Flowers
Fresh flowers always bring beauty into a home, whether they are cut flowers or flowering plants!

3. Unconventional Vases
Being the quirky little thing I am, I love creating an unexpected design element to a room.
Putting some fresh flowers in an unconventional vase is a great way
to add some personality to any space.

4. Shells
Using shells as decorative accents is a way of reminding us of warm days spent in the sun at the beach and is a great way to transition your room in to the Summertime.
Large shells can be used as bowls, planters or even standalone sculptures.

Smaller shells look beautiful in a vase, collected in a small dish or even mixed into your shelves. Just remember, they look more organized and less cluttered when grouped together.

5. Spring’s Colour Palette
Sometimes just bringing in the colours of Spring can alter the mood of your home.
The crisp blues, grass greens, sun yellows, and the cloud whites, whether used boldly, or as accents can breathe new life into your home.

6. Animals
Don’t worry, I’m not suggesting that you bring any fury creatures into your home, but rather that you incorporate images or other representations of animals that remind you of Spring:
butterflies, birds, bunnies, and even nests and bird eggs.
 
 
 
 
 
7. Botanical Prints
Another ways to bring the outdoors in is through the use of botanical prints. Framed prints on the wall are beautiful, whether purchased from the store or homemade.
 
 
You can also look for textiles with botanical prints, such as bedding or throw pillows.
 
 
 
8. Fruits
What better symbol of Springtime than fresh, seasonal fruit?
Arranging bright fruits such as lemons, limes and oranges in glass jars makes a fresh kitchen or mantel piece, and can also be featured during the Summer.
 
 
 
 
 So farewell dark colours, traditional plaids and furs throws, I’m ready for greenery, flowers and a fresh start to the new season!
