Start with spring cleaning.
Spring cleaning is more than just a chore – it’s a chance to start fresh, declutter your home, and prepare for a new season. Whether you’re tackling a single room or your entire house, there’s something incredibly satisfying about scrubbing away the dirt and grime of winter and ushering in a sense of renewed energy and organization.

And the best part? Once you’re finished, you’ll have a sense of accomplishment and pride that will inspire you to keep your home looking and feeling its best all season long.

5 Home Decor Tips For Spring
Before diving into the home decor part, here’s a quick little reminder to declutter first. Decluttering will eliminate excess “stuff” and help create a more peaceful vibe in the environment.
I love the inviting chocolate browns, warm rustic reds, and dark cloudy greys during the winter. But when the birds start singing and the flowers bloom, I prefer to lighten it up a bit. Now, I’m not suggesting redecorating. But change up the color of the throw pillow covers to something light. Playing with texture is fun, but I’ll discuss that later. Swap out your thick, cozy throw blanket for a soft organic cotton one in a neutral color, change dark vases for light, and swap out dark candles for light; you get the point, I’m sure. Lighten up the colors and the vibe in the environment.
Whether it’s natural or artificial, seriously consider adding plants, leaves, branches, and whatever other natural components speak to you. The closer I can get to nature, the better I feel, and I’m sure plenty of you are nodding and thinking the same thing. So, create those feelings inside your own house.

3. Add flowers.
Flowers are so happy, bright, and easy to add whatever tone of color you’re aiming for. You can add flowers in vases, flowers on pillow cushions, floral wall art, or anything else. Add flowers in a way that compliments your style.
4. Update your wreath.
As the seasons change, so can your home decor! One of the easiest ways to give your home a fresh look for spring is to update your wreath. Whether starting from scratch or revamping an existing wreath, this simple project will help you welcome the warm weather with style and flair. Here are some tips to get you started on changing your wreath for spring.
First, you’ll want to choose the right materials. Natural elements like greenery, flowers, and moss are perfect for spring wreaths. You can also incorporate ribbons, lace, or other fabrics into your design to add texture and color. For a pop of whimsy, try adding some colorful felt cutouts in the shape of birds, butterflies, or other springtime motifs.
Next, you’ll need to decide how you want to arrange your materials. If you’re using greenery, lay out the branches and arrange them in whatever pattern appeals to you. Make sure to use wire or floral tape to secure the arrangement together. You can add other elements, such as flowers or fabric. Add a pretty ribbon to the bottom of your wreath for a touch of color and texture.
Finally, hang your spring wreath up on the front door to greet visitors with a cheerful display! If you’re feeling extra creative, you can also make some smaller wreaths for your decor.
5. Change up your wall art.
Changing your wall art for spring is a great way to give your home a fresh look. Wall art can instantly transform any room and add color, texture, or pattern to the space. Whether you’re looking for something bright and cheerful or more subtle and calming, there are plenty of ways to update your walls with seasonal artwork that will make you feel like it’s spring all year round! Here are some tips on changing your wall art this season.
First, you’ll want to choose artwork that fits with your home’s existing color palette. If you have a neutral or pastel-colored room, look for prints and photographs in soft hues like blues and yellows. Try spring florals or abstract art in shades of pink, green, and yellow for bolder colors.
Next, consider the size and shape of your artwork. You can use a gallery wall or incorporate different-sized pieces for an eclectic look for larger walls. Use one large statement piece to make a bold impact if you have smaller walls. You can also combine pieces in various shapes and sizes to create interest and depth.
Finally, don’t forget the frames! Think about how you want to showcase your artwork, whether it’s with a simple black frame or something more ornate like a gilded one. For an added touch, try distressing the frames for a vintage-inspired look that will give your home decor an instant beautiful flair.
