As the slow slowly melts off the mountain slopes, warmer spring weather is right around the corner. Soon the days of blustery cold and icy roads will be gone, and we will be graced with spring flowers and greenery abound. It’s a great time of year to take stock of your home and your décor and transition from the winter season into a more spring-and-summer vibe. Here are our favorite spring décor tips and tricks for your vacation home.
Change Up Your Bedding
It’s time to retire the flannel bedding and sheets. Besides being too warm for the season, flannel doesn’t match well with the spring aesthetic. Go for lighter colors for your duvet or comforter, and opt for linen sheets to keep you cool in the warmer months.
Wallpaper to Accent One Wall
Have you ever tried peel-and-stick wallpaper? Well, now is the time. Perfect for seasonal decorating, peel-and-stick wallpaper can be put up and taken down whenever you’d like. A trend to try: wallpapering one wall in a room. This will add a pop of style without overpowering the ambiance. Think florals or geometric designs in bright colors – a spring décor must.
As for color, it’s time to reach for lighter hues like lavender and sage. Colored vases or decorative pillows are perfect for adding slight pops of color to your home. Be wary though: if you go too overboard with the pastels, your home may begin looking like an Easter egg hunt.
It’s a great time of year to add some plants around your home. For an even springier effect, buy some fresh flowers! Make them the centerpiece of your dining table or a special display on your work-from-home desk.
If you’re looking to replace old furniture or bring something new in, spring is a great time to do so. Wicker or bamboo dining chairs match with the season. If you’re on the hunt for a new sofa, consider something linen-covered – a strong and durable fabric, but one that also fits under the spring décor umbrella.
