There is no denying the fact that spring is the happiest season of the year. A harbinger of new beginnings, spring is all about new blooms, warmer temperatures and refreshing colours all around. And when it comes to spring home decor, it is all about bringing the outdoors inside. Fresh pastel colors, clean and minimal designs, sustainable materials and nature-inspired themes are the core elements of spring décor. Light airy rooms, floral fixes, bright cushions and light cotton/linen fabrics form some key parts of Spring decor.
Add colourful elements in the form of cushion covers, dainty flowers and gorgeous plants. Light and natural tones and elements in the form of wood or rattan can be soothing to eyes after the cold winter months. Bring color to your living spaces by mixing in new cushions, blankets, vases, and rattan trays in spring hues like pinks, yellow, peach, whites etc. Add a touch of green by bringing potted plants in your homes. Finally add a light scented candle or the Indian tuberose for that heavenly fragrance. Dreamy sheers in light mint, pinks or whites can also make the room look bigger.
Natural motifs and hues bring the mood of happiness and calmness of nature into the living spaces. The arrival of blooming botanicals and fragrant florals brings a resurgence of life into the world around us. Try mounting a large piece of floral artwork on your living room wall, or go for a series of framed botanical prints.
Using simple ceramics is a good option since it is earthy in nature and provides a pop of colour to the space. Similarly, glass in light coloured shades of amber, mints and blues can really bring out the vibe of spring. Simple decorative wooden frames can be refinished in pastel shades in order to make them spring ready and look rustic. Shades of mint green, baby blue or powder pink are very spring.
Since spring is associated with colours, one needs to follow a theme and accordingly add accessories and colour tones. Using too many colours would create confusion and also make the space loud.
Focus on Sustainability
Wicker and rattan are sustainable materials and lend an element of class and rustic charm to your space. Wicker gives a feeling of being close to nature and makes a space very chic and casual. One can use wicker as side tables, or containers for organisation or storage. A wicker trunk can be kept in front of the bed to store linen as opposed to the regular wooden trunks. These small touches can make the space look ready for spring. Adding ginger jars with pop colour chinoiserie prints can really make the space look luxe yet natural and raw. Bright linens and soft cottons are natural materials that work best for furnishings and looks great for table styling too.
It is a season to enjoy, so keep this simple, natural and elegant!
