How to Bring Spring Into Your Home in 5 Steps
Upgrade your home decor from winter to spring with these 5 tips
The days are getting longer, the birds are singing, and the temperature is gradually rising. Spring is right around the corner, but your home décor still shouts winter. Here are 5 quick fixes to help you transition from winter to spring:
- Swap out your dark and heavy window treatments with light and airy curtains
This quick fix can make an entire room look brighter. For an airy vibe, try sheer curtains in neutral tones or patterns. Browse through this Houzz article, The Many Reasons to Embrace Sheer Curtains, for tips and inspiration. If you’re looking for a little more privacy, try pairing sheer curtains with lighter, solid curtain panels.
- Space out accessories with pops of color
A painting, a picture frame, a small table, or even a bright colored chair – add a splash of color to your living room or bedroom with vibrant accessories. You’ll be amazed at how swapping in some colorful decor can make a room feel more cheerful. Up for a challenge? Try incorporating the Pantone Colors of the Year into your interior decorating!
- Brighten up the bathroom
Typically the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms in a home so transitioning the space from season to season doesn’t take a lot of effort. To start, swap out your shower curtain for a lighter, neutral tone. Next, throw in some bright and colorful towels. Try pairing a floral patterned hand towel with other pale colored towels. If there’s room, add a large planter, a bright colored vase or a few colorful candles. A brighter bathroom will look clean and feel open and airy.
- Bring the outside in with planters and flowers
The most obvious way to celebrate the arrival of spring is with flowers! Here are a few of our favorite ideas:
- Brighten up a bookcase or shelf with a handful of bright flowers
- Try green planters for modern spaces
- Accessorize a large dining table with a tall vase holding a bouquet with long branches

Breathe some life into your living room or sitting area with bright colored throw pillows. Try pillows of different styles, colors, patterns, textures, and tones to easily brighten the space. Don’t stop at the living room – toss some spring pillows on entry way benches, breakfast nooks, or dining room chairs! If you’re looking for a more subtle look, try the lighter natural tones you’d find in linens and burlaps.
