How to Re-Energize Your Home for Spring

Spring is right around the corner, and in our eyes it can’t come fast enough! We’re longing to shake off the sleepy season of winter and renew our living spaces with seasonal pops of color, fresh air and the florals we’ve been missing.

It’s time to roll up the dark area rugs, pull down the muted curtains and spring clean your space. Here are some tips to get you started!

  • Treat your company to color

  • Update dining room chairs for a splash of color

Adding some color to your seating, whether it be elegant chinoiserie elements like these chairs or a pop of bold hues on the seat cushions is a great way to update your space for the season. We always like to have chairs with interchangeable seat cushions for this reason. You can prepare a color set for any time of the year! (Image via Blackband Design)

  • Accent your windows with bright, playful curtains

  • Refresh Your Walls With a Bright Piece of Art

One of our favorite decorating tips that has always stuck with us, is if you hang every piece of artwork you have on the walls of your home at once, you’re bound to lose a little love for them. After all, if you see something all the time, the novelty wears off! Keeping several pieces in storage for specific points of the year or when you need a refresh to switch out is the way to go. It’s like giving yourself a new present every time you rehang a piece! (Image via  Little Big Bell)

  • Rehab Your Living Area with a Bold Area Rug

Walking into a room awash in cheerful pops of color just lifts our mood. Putting a facelift on your same old furniture with a new accent rug will chase the winter blues away. Plus, a light or color-infused rug can easily carry your decor through the spring and summer months before needing another refresher. ( rug via Overstock).

  • Do a Mini Refresh With Some New Couch Cushions
