Be inspired byΒ the colours of nature

Accent colours such as aqua blues, spring greens and sunny yellows against a neutral background can uplift any interior.

Combine pattern and colour
Let pattern and colour do the talking and be inspired by ‘Mother Nature’. Look at how she combines them both and she never gets it wrong.

Experiment with paint
If you are nervous about introducing a radical change, be daring with paint. It is a job you can do yourself, it is inexpensive, and easy to correct if you don’t like it. Paint is one of the most frugal and yet most transformative, decorating ideas for spring!

Let the sun shine in
Introduce light by choosing designs that are clean, refreshing and light. Choose sheer fabrics, linens and open weave textiles, move from ceramic to crystal and glass and look at how you light your home.

Easy Low Cost Decorating Ideas for SpringDress your home with flowers
Nothing’s says Spring more than fresh flowers. Create arrangements that are simple and vibrant. This can be achieved by using all the same type or colour of flower, display in a glass container and wrap a beautiful ribbon around it.

De-Clutter
Spring is the ideal time to ‘de-clutter’. Too many things can be distracting and are high maintenance. If you haven’t used or worn something in the last 12 months you probably don’t need it. Give it away and you’ll feel better and someone else will benefit from your generosity. The act of de-cluttering can be very cathartic.

Whether you are just adding some Spring seasonal accents or using it as an inspiration to do a complete makeover, I hope that these decorating ideas for spring help you enjoy creating something truly unique that reflects all that Spring represents.

  1. I love the fabric! I’ve been itching to bring some color into the house and ditch the snowflakes made by the kids.

  2. We’re going the paint-a-room route this spring. Need to freshen up the colors!

  3. All are great tips! I am on a mission to declutter my home; to get rid of all of the “stuff” we tend to acquire. I think it will be liberating!

  4. I agree on the 12-month rule. If you haven’t worn it in a year, you really don’t need it.

  5. We are working so hard to de-clutter! I feel like I can’t function when there is clutter everywhere. We painted our house about 10 years ago, so it is getting to be about time to re-paint our rooms. It would be nice to refresh the house with some new colors.

  6. You had me at low cost. What a great selection of furniture pieces, and f they are less expensive, then it works for us!

  7. Great minds think alike. I’ve been filling in some holes and scrapes in our wall this week to prepare for some painting. I’m still debating on the colors but will be deciding soon. You made me rethink my color scheme a bit.

  8. Deborah and April, I agree, spring is the ideal time for this. Last spring we updated a room and it was, well, life-changing is perhaps too strong a word for it, but it did make a tremendous difference in our daily life.
