Redecorate for Spring:

Welcoming the Warmth & Color of the Season

By Jessica Ackerman,

Revitalize your spirit and
energy by welcoming spring into your home. The winter blahs are almost
over and the first few welcome signs of spring are beginning to peek
through the window. The forsythia are about to burst into glorious yellow
bloom and the crocus along the front walk are pushing up tender green
shoots. Spring is a time of renewal and hope after a long winter. Welcome
the warmth and color of spring into your home with decorating ideas that
are a breath of fresh air.

Easy Transformation Tips

It’s easy to refresh and
lighten the look of a room by switching out accessories. While dark colors
and snuggly throws may have been your heart’s desire in the dead of
winter, it’s time to wash them and put them away. 

Replace them with cheery
pillows and throws in checks, stripes and florals in pastel shades like
yellow, white and light green. Put the snowmen collectibles away and bring
in playful bunnies and garden theme decor. Consider replacing dark lamp
shades with lighter colored or wicker shades. 

Try slipcovers for the
upcoming warmer season that are lighter in color or have a fresh pattern
that gives whole new look to your room without replacing the furniture.
Dark area rugs can be replaced with rugs of natural jut or sisal.

Decorate with the Buds and
Blooms of Spring

There are many easy ways to
add floral arrangements that tell you spring is just around the corner.
Pick up fresh cut flowers for a song from your favorite supermarket,
farmers market or street vendor. The garden center at your home
improvement store carries a wonderful selection of house plants, potted
flowering plants and spring bulbs that have been forced and ready for a
new home in sunny kitchen window. Let hyacinths, crocus, daffodils and
tulips come out and say hello and with the fragrance and color of spring.

metal plant wall vases

Craft stores sell artificial
silk flowers and greens that can be arranged in your favorite vases or
urns and eventually in metal
wall vases.

Layer them on top of
cabinets, mantels or table tops along with candles and other seasonal décor. 

Artificial topiary complete
with their own stone pot or urn are easier to maintain than the real thing
and look just as good. 

Make a cheerful springtime
wreath for your door with a grapevine wreath and some silk blooms and
ribbon. Use artificial branches of forsythia or cherry blossoms as part of
a ‘tablescape’, tucked into a wreath, or simply in a tall dramatic
vase.

Fragrant Candles and Floral
Rings

Add the intoxicating scent
of spring to your floral arrangements in scents like honeysuckle, freesia,
lilac and lavender. 

Create an easy and elegant
arrangement for a table top with a cake stand, pillar candles and
artificial flowers. Start with a table runner or scarf then simply center
your cake stand and top with several pillar candles in two or more
heights. Tuck in artificial spring blooms and arrange budding branches or
vines on the table. Add a little more interest with a miniature topiary,
spring theme ceramic collectibles, and additional taper or votive candles. 


On the wall you can put canvas
art paintings in fresh colors. Or you can choose abstract
wall art reminding of the reviving life in spring.

Table Linens and Accessories

Freshen up with linens and
accessories in pastels and lively patterns that say spring is here! Table
linens, place mats, napkins, napkin rings, and dishtowels make it easy to
welcome the season to your kitchen and dining area. Craft stores offer a
wide array of affordable dishes, platters, egg cups, teapots, vases and
accessories in spring colors and motifs that make it a breeze to complete
your transition to spring!
