6 Ways to Welcome Spring into Your Home
You may be thinking to yourself “How do I transition my house from winter to spring?” There are many ways to transition from winter and welcome spring into your home.
The first thing to is give the house a good spring cleaning. Lots of decluttering usually is going on from January through the end of March. All the base boards and doors get a good wipe down.
a good time to clean the rugs
It is the perfect time to shampoo any area rugs in your rooms or send them off to be professional clean. Over the weekend, this large 11 x 15 rug got a good cleaning with my Bissell Carpet Cleaner.
Currently, I have one rug down and it’s in the family room. We are house training a puppy.
Chibi is doing well at 7-months. The house is puppy proofed by removing our two nice rugs from the dining room and kitchen dining area.
dress your Fireplace for spring
It’s time to change out the winter decorations to spring. Try dressing your fireplace for spring by adding faux flowers in bright and cheery colors. The cherry blossom stems are great for tall vases.
There is something beautiful about using greenery in your spaces. Why add greenery in your home? Adding greenery in your home is a trend that will never go out of style. It makes the room feel and look fresh. It gives the room a cozy feel.
Add fun seasonal pieces in your spring decorations. Here a rabbit stretches out on the mantel with spring green hanging hops bushes nestled around it. You can keep you mantel and hearth simple or go elaborate. My mantel, I can easily remove the rabbit with the hops and keep everything else as we move into the summer.
refresh your pillows
For spring, I brought in more hues of blues in the family and dining rooms. New pillows covers in shades of blue and white brightens up the gray sofa. I love this brand of pillows covers. They were reasonably priced with good quality fabric. Each pillow has piping in a solid blue.
I do believe my fur babies approve of the pillows. These sweet girls are snuggle bugs and love to cuddle on the sofa with me.
spring table settings
You can create a beautiful spring table setting. Try pulling in a color that you love.
For Easter, we will have casual dining. If you are like me and love the look of a beautiful wood table, add a pretty spring table runner in lieu of a tablecloth.
To protect your table use chargers or placements. It will protect the table from the heat from hot plates of food.
Try adding salad plates in different patterns. Cloth napkins can be laid under the salad plate or next to the plate with silverware on top.
Shop local thrift stores for wonderful glass vases and candle holders. Add taper candles in a coordinating color to your tablescape.
Create a center piece for your table. I took a boxwood wreath for the base of my centerpiece. Mr. Big is a large iron rabbit. I have him in the center. To coordinate him with the other rabbits in the house, he got a gingham bow as well.
This fun centerpiece does not block the view of any guest. He’s sitting in the center. Remember to keep things low not to obstruct your guest views.
Mr. Big has been around in my house for many years. I found him at the sweetest store in Pennsylvania while visiting my husband’s family.
This past weekend, I found him a grapevine carrot from a local vintage market Rust and Grain. He looks pretty proud of his new carrot.
Remember is fun to add a touch of whimsy to your tablescape!
bring in spring colors
Throughout my home you will see hues of blues and greens. These are such tranquil colors to me. For this spring, I brought in yellow. It is a color that my daughter has always loved. It all started with that yellow tray. No lie.
A wreath is a great way to add pops of color into a room. A navy blue gingham bow was added to the lemon wreath to tie in the blue from my kitchen chairs.
I love pops of color. My walls and furniture are neutral for that very reason.
What colors symbolizes spring? Colors that are nature-inspired shades of yellow, orange, pink, blue, green, or lavender. The hues can range from pastel to brighter shades. Don’t be afraid of bringing in color.
This year, I am going bold with yellow. And, honestly I have to say that it is lovely. It’s such a happy color and pairs wonderful with greens and blues in my home.
My new favorite apron from April Cornell is hung on a 3M Command Hook. I love the rose pattern on the yellow.
If you want a subtle pop of color, try creating a vignette on your island. Here I am using a yellow tray as my base. A navy vase with faux tulips anchors one side, a candle and a rabbit anchors the right side.
add fresh flowers & Plants
I love using plants throughout my home. Here I have a beautiful white Cyclamen in a white ironstone vintage soup tureen. Most likely, I will replant it after Easter into another container. Try adding Hyacinths or Daffodils to bowls, planters or vintage dishes. You can read a post about How To Decorate With Plants And Flowers here.
If found a set of twig baskets and tucked some English Ivy in it. I loved the organic look of the twigs with the sweet ivy.
You can never go wrong with fresh cut flowers in the home. Why are flowers important in home decor? Fresh flowers lift your mood and helps to eliminate stress and anxiety.
Flowers adds life and color in your space. The scents of flowers can be very uplifting and give a sense of relaxation. To me it has a calming effect.
This week I made this nature inspired DIY Easter centerpiece for my kitchen table. I have the easy tutorial here.
I hope you enjoyed my home tour and my ideas for welcoming spring into your home.
