To update the interior after the winter and breathe new life into it, just add a few bright accents and stylish details to the interior. More lightness, freshness, and natural motifs in the interior – this is the recipe for a spring mood. Get inspired and ready for spring and next summer!
1. Such different textiles
Designers never tire of repeating that changing textiles is one of the fastest options for transforming an interior. Start simple: Swap your fur, knitted pillowcases for linen, cotton with bright stripes, or floral patterns. And go further: hang translucent curtains, please yourself with new kitchen tacks and towels, napkins, under appliances, lay a nice woven rug in the hallway.
2. New old furniture
If the artist or designer wakes up in you with the onset of spring, try changing the look of your furniture. The simplest thing is to choose new handles for a dresser or wardrobe, and a more complicated process is to paint boring bedside tables or a dining table in a bright color or sew a new cover for a chair or sofa.
3. Needlework is not only in frames
Embroidery is an excellent decor for the interior of an apartment or cottage. You can, as usual, arrange it in a baguette or try a non-standard solution: embroider a small drawing or an inscription in a small hoop. You can create a beautiful composition from several pieces without removing the work from the ring and hanging it on the wall. You can also decorate with embroidery items used in everyday life – tablecloths, napkins, decorative pillows.
4. Spring wreath
A Western tradition that is gaining popularity worldwide is the wreath on the door. Of course, not everyone wants to hang a decoration on the outside of the door, so we suggest leaving the wreath inside the house and decorating the entrance and interior doors or an empty wall opening. Decorate the base for a wreath (textile or the twigs of a bush) with artificial and fresh flowers, twigs with buds, ribbons, and beads.
5. Other colors
You can bring fresh notes to the atmosphere with the help of several bright accessories. It doesn’t matter which shade you choose: any unusual shade will joy the eyes. Hang a picture or poster with new green details, buy one bright piece of furniture – a chair, a coffee table, an armchair.
6. Beautiful tableware
Spring is a great occasion to replace scattered cups and plates with a beautiful service. Choose a “basic” set of white porcelain for the home – it is suitable for any serving. But for country feasts, get something bright and cheerful: ceramic dishes with floral or oriental patterns will fit perfectly here.
7. Long-lived primroses
Indoor flowers are great helpers in creating a spring atmosphere if, for some reason, you don’t have them. Now is the time to decorate the house with primroses: hyacinths, daffodils, muscles. When the plants fade and wither, plant the bulbs in the summer cottage, and next spring, they will delight you with fragrant flowers already at the club.
8. Spring little things
Even a subtle detail can change the atmosphere of a home and country interior. For a spring mood, use themed accessories: decorative bird cages, figurines of rabbits, butterfly panels, floral prints – everything that you associate with the coming season.
9. Country accessories
Everything is helpful in the country – you think and take old things out of the apartment. But some country things will easily find a place in the urban interior: for example, a garden watering can or a basket as flower pots. This technique suits Provence style, shabby chic, country, and Scandinavian style.
Get into the habit of buying new bedding once a season. For spring, sets made of natural fabrics (linen, cotton) with a floral print, striped, or with a “degrade” effect (color transition from a light shade to a dark one) are suitable. Liven up the bedroom with bright spring colors: let the morning start with a smile.
11- Starting with decorative elements
A basic and straightforward way to transform the interior with your own hands is to change things. Start with decorative pillowcases. Warm winter – no, cotton and linen with a bright print or floral pattern – yes.
Replace thick curtains with translucent ones update kitchen textiles (potholders, napkins, tablecloths, towels). Put a cute rug in the hallway, and hang a bright shower curtain in the bathroom.
12- Add flowers to the interior
Use flowers in vases, planters, and pots. For a better and longer effect, choose natural specimens with a long flowering period (azaleas, house roses, orchids, balsams are suitable).
Replace light planters with bright ones – this is both decor and a mood! Do not forget about seasonal bouquets in the living room: from daffodils, hyacinths, tulips. And in the kitchen, arrange pots of herbs, such as mint, lavender, or basil.
13- Refurbishing old furniture
In the spring, without creativity in any way. Get down to business: change the handles of a dresser or cabinet (it’s straightforward to do this) or paint a boring cabinet in a bright color (it’s a little more difficult). You can also update old furniture with self-adhesive paper or wallpaper with spring prints.
The advice is not tied to the season: it is easy to change the interior in any season with such paper.
14- Giving new life to old things
While someone is taking necessary, but infrequently used things to the dacha, look at country stocks from a different angle.
A wicker basket, a garden watering can, an attached wooden threshold – all this can become a valuable decorative element in a city apartment. Such items fit perfectly into Scandinavian interiors and are great for Provence, country, shabby chic.
15- Buying new dishes
A beautiful service or plates and cups that accidentally got into the kitchen? The first one. If you don’t have it yet, do a spring revision.
For the home, it is better to choose something basic, for example, a set of white porcelain (it will be concise in any serving); in the country, you can experiment with colors and design – try ceramics, pay attention to bright oriental and floral patterns.
16- Good morning
All of us, with rare exceptions, meet the morning in bed. So why not add spring and mood to where our day begins?
Change bed linen to new: from natural fabrics, with thematic prints. Ideally, make a habit of buying new underwear once a season.
17- We use decor
Small and large themed accessories – from animal figurines to decorative bird cages – even these minor details can change the atmosphere of a summer house and home. Work with associations and use everything that reminds you of spring and gives you positive emotions.
