Lockdown is finally over, spring is here, and we’re ready to welcome friends and family into our home. So, dust off that coffee table and infuse a splash of vivid colour in your home with our top ideas for spring decorating.

There’s nothing like fresh spring decor to brighten up your spaces – and your mood! But when you’re changing your décor around from season to season you don’t want to make any drastic changes. After all, in another few months, it will be getting cooler again! There are countless ideas for spring decorating floating around on the internet, but many of them involve a complete home décor overall. Ideally, you want to start with neutral walls and furniture and add to that base with smaller décor pieces that can be swapped out when you get bored with them.

By making just a few clever changes, you can keep your décor fresh and transform your spaces to suit the seasons. Bright spring décor can also help if you’re preparing to sell your home –  because no one wants to see tired old cushions or gloomy wall art!

Here are our top tips on how to decorate for spring, without tearing your walls down or breaking the bank!

 1. Add Pretty Pastels

Gone are the days when pretty pastels were confined to the nursery room! When you’re considering how to decorate for spring, there’s nothing quite like pastels, but they work especially well if you’re trying to branch out into using more colour. From mint green to baby blue, lavender, millennial pink, or a soft buttery yellow, there’s so much to choose from when it comes to pastels!

If you’re a little colour-averse, baby blue is an easy choice that can go well with anything, especially a minimalistic palette. Simply add a few pastel cushions, vases, photo frames, and lampshades to get the look. Or if you really want to embrace the look for spring, add a colourful assortment of rainbow pastel colours.

2. Bold Table Settings

Take advantage of finally having guests over by embracing an eye-catching table setting. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or it’s a casual Sunday brunch, go all out and inject some life into your spaces with bright, bold spring décor.

Invest in a bright dinner setting. Then, spice things up with some bright sunflowers in strategically placed vases along the table. You can also add colourful linen napkins, which are affordable, yet have a classic look and can be reused again and again! Or, stick with one new piece only. Simply grab a statement table runner in a bold shade. Voila – you’ll instantly brighten the mood!

3. Repaint Your Furniture

When it comes to spring decorating tips, you don’t have to spend a fortune. In fact, sometimes you can just modify what you already have. Why not start by mixing up your furniture?

Repaint tired furniture in fresh spring colours like blue or mint green. Or, simply paint your pieces white to freshen them up. Paint your desk, bookshelves or even just your mirror frames. This works wonders in brightening a darker room.

4. Add Dried Grasses

If you’re sick of the same old ideas for spring decorating, mix things up. Forget spring flowers, try pampas grass, baby’s breath, or even everlasting flowers dyed in bright shades. Dried grasses exude a chic, natural look without adding too much colour, making them perfect for all home décor styles, from minimalistic to coastal, classic, and everything in between.

The best part? They’re dried, which means you can keep them forever, and they require zero maintenance – well, except for some dusting every now and then!

5. Try Large-Scale Wall Art

If you really want to make an impact, here’s an idea for spring decorating that’s sure to turn a few heads. Grab a colourful piece of large-scale wall art. The best wall art features a variety of colours, which also makes it far easier to match it with your room’s colour scheme. As long as a couple of colours in your artwork match the other décor in your room, you can still achieve a wonderfully balanced look.

But for spring, we feel that brighter = better! When it comes to wall art, there are so many styles to choose from, from coastal to florals or even graffiti wall art. If you’re not sure which style to go with, abstract art is always a great place to start and it’s also versatile enough to suit a range of rooms.

So, there you have it! We hope these ideas for spring decorating have inspired you to refresh your rooms just in time for the holiday season. Which spring décor idea would you choose?
