Wondering how you should redecorate your apartment this spring? Here are some interior design tips for you!
If you’re looking to make some changes to your interior, spring is the perfect time to do it. After all, they don’t call it “spring cleaning” for no reason. With flowers blossoming outside and baby birds being born, you might be in a mood to make some changes to your life. What better way to do that than to redecorate? Your environment greatly influences your state of mind, so it’s a good idea to make sure you’re happy with your home. Make some time to take care of yourself and your apartment this season. From classic pastels to modern, bright colors, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about interior design for spring.
Pastels are a classic spring color
When people think of colors for spring, the first thing that comes to mind is pastels. If you’re looking to add some traditional spring colors to your apartment, think about getting some new throw pillows. While you can’t rotate large pieces of furniture like sofas and couches according to the seasons, you can do so with accessories. Pale pinks and lavenders look good on grey or black couches, while light greens and yellows look good on brown sofas. You can also get some flowers. Spring blossoms are the reason pastels are the defining color of the season. Some beautiful flowers to decorate your home with include daffodils, tulips, hydrangeas, lilies, and irises.
But bright, eye-catching colors can help lift your mood
Pastels aren’t for everyone. They might remind you of your grandmother and Easter dinners with your cousins. Or you might simply find them to be boring. If that’s the case, you should mix it up and redecorate it with bold colors. While it’s best to tone it down and stick with neutrals in the autumn and winter, spring is the time to go wild. Reds, bright oranges, magentas, and yellows are awesome bold spring colors. Buying some brightly colored home decor can help lift your mood and add some life to your home.
Get some new artwork
As long as you don’t buy giant pieces, it’s fairly easy to switch your art around according to the seasons. Like other small home accessories, prints and canvases can be stored away without a hitch when you’re not using them. Spring artwork should feature bright colors or classic pastels. Vivid green pastoral scenes and artwork inspired by baby animals are great choices. Art featuring birds is also popular in the spring. Whatever you end up choosing, it’s best to avoid stormy scenes or dark colors that can dampen your mood.
Spruce up your bedroom with some bold sheets
If you want to bring the joy and cheerfulness of spring to your bedroom, think about getting some bold sheets or a bright comforter. You have to swap out your thick winter bedding for something lighter, so why not buy spring colors? Florals are a spring staple, but if you want something a little different, go for solids or a whimsical paisley. Polka dots on a red (or other bold colors) background also work well in the spring.
Light-colored woods are a popular spring trend
We don’t expect you to buy a new table or set of chairs just because it’s spring. However, if you decide to buy a wood item for your home, keep in mind that light-colored woods are best for spring. If you’re buying frames to go with your spring artwork, consider getting beige or tan ones. You can also consider getting wooden vases for your spring flowers.
Change your scents
If you use candles, air freshener, or other scented products, buy new ones for spring! Fresh, clean scents can lift you out of a winter slump and energize you. Consider getting some floral scents if you want to be reminded of the spring blooms. Some citrus scents are also good for spring. While orange stirs up memories of winter, lemon is refreshing and invigorating. To further boost the feeling of spring vibes, get candle holders that match the season. New candle holders can be a great way to incorporate a pop of color or a touch of pastel into your home.
