I tend to get into a rut in my house. I work really hard to find decor that go together cohesively then when the vibe is right, I change NOTHING. About a year into living in our last house, I felt ‘finished’ and there it stayed until we added a nursery (which was complete before Mady’s arrival and didn’t change a bit until we moved). In our new space, I’m trying to make small changes every once in while to let in a little of the new season and now that Spring is in full force outside, it’s nice to feel a little freshness inside as well.
Consider Adding Texture
Just last night, I sat down and made a little faux weaving to add to our bathroom. I used nothing but a stick from my yard and yarn I had sitting around in a craft box but it made all the difference in the world in the bathroom. Texture doesn’t just have to be on the walls either. A chunky knit blanket instead of the warm winter throw you had out or a mixed media pillow are also great options.
Paint Something White
Don’t be afraid to repurpose something you already have. I painted my living room table white and the space brightened up almost immediately. I’m thinking of adding more white to my space by painting some picture frames or even a few small display items I have like a set of antlers. Just a few white touches can make all the difference.
Bring The Outside In
Now that my jungle of backyard is in full bloom, we have been spending time plucking a flower now and then. My favorites to bring in are the lilacs and the camellia (yes I had to google the name of both those). They both last a while inside and are little bright spots on my table. Lets also talk about the smell because the lilacs….total mood booster.
I’m working on a few other projects to bring some Spring vibes into the house well. I think I’ll try my hand at water color painting or maybe a few more faux weavings will find their way into a room or two. What are your favorite ways to update for Spring? Do you have anything you bring out annually? I would love to hear in the comments!
