Step outside and smell the orange blossoms in the air, or see a butterfly landing on a budding flower and feel the warmth of the sun shining in that bright blue sky. Spring is here and now is the time to bring that happy feeling indoors! Here are 5 simple ways to welcome spring, without breaking the bank:
1. Add some color to your walls.
It doesn't have to be to bold or crazy. It could be a honey yellow or a sky blue. If you're renting you can buy or reuse some material leftover from your favorite skirt and frame it. Or use scrapbook paper. If you're anything like me there is plenty of scrapbook paper to go around!:) Here's an example
2. Floral flair.
Change up your throw pillows. Use a zippered throw pillow cover then you can always switch it up and change with the season and your style. I love a good floral print pillow! It will brighten up your sofa and be an inviting place for company to sit and visit or to just rest your head on!
3. Window treatments.
This one is huge for me. Window treatments change the whole atmosphere of a room! I love white window treatments next to a beautiful accent wall. It's nice to be able to have natural light during the day but also nice to be able to have some privacy at night. Shutters are perfect for this, they look custom and have a timeless style!
4. Natural accessories.
Literally bring the outdoors in! Pull that dusty glass vase out and go pick some fresh flowers or fruit. Lemons and limes look beautiful as well! Bring the spring fragrant of flowers and orange blossoms indoors. Flowers will make the room smell so good and bring a smile to your face.:)
5. First thing you see . . . the front door.
Brighten up your front door with a colorful wreath. It's one of the first things people see, so make a good first impression!:) A wreath out of fresh spring flowers is a beautiful way to celebrate and welcome spring!
