There’s no denying that this has been a long (and often grueling) winter season. But, fortunately, spring is just around the corner, and there’s no better way to celebrate than having your indoor décor livened up to match the mood of the coming season.
Here are some tips for making your apartment more festive for spring, no matter how big or small it is inside. With a few easy swaps and personal touches, you’ll feel more than ready to embrace warmer days and beautiful blooms ahead.
Add Some In-Season Flowers
One of the easiest ways to welcome the spring season into your apartment is to pick up some in-season flowers from a local market. Tulips, hyacinths, peonies, lilies, and orchids are all wonderful choices for springtime décor. Try arranging one or more of these varieties in a simple vase to instantly brighten up your space and your mood.
Get Creative with DIY Plant and Herb Gardens
Another fun way to incorporate a little more greenery into your space is to create a tabletop terrarium. It’s like having your own miniature garden without even needing a yard! If you’re short on space, it’s also fun to create a mason jar herb garden hung on the wall with recycled wood and other affordable DIY materials.
Replace Neutral Shades with Springtime Hues
Many apartment dwellers stick to neutral shades for paint and décor since it’s practically foolproof. But a great way to liven up your space for spring is to replace neutral colors with pastels, floral prints, and even vibrant neon colors. Even if you can’t or don’t want to paint your apartment walls, you can get creative with the colors of your furniture, artwork, and accessories. Updated colors on a few simple throw pillows, bedding items, towels, and wall décor pieces can make a huge difference in how you experience the change in seasons.
Let the Light in with Sheer Window Treatments
Although springtime in New York City always sees its fair share of rainy days, we also see lots of sunshine. Let in some of those golden rays by replacing or supplementing your current window treatments with transparent or sheer curtains that are light and airy. You can also pick up a Roman shade in a pastel or floral pattern to transform an ordinary window into an artistic masterpiece.
Swap Out Your Artwork
If you’re the kind of person who hangs artwork after first moving into an apartment and then never touches it again, then perhaps this spring is the perfect time for an update. You can breathe new life into favorite pieces by placing them into new frames that feature springtime hues, like pink and yellow. Or to switch things up even more, pick up some brand-new artwork that’s simple, nature-inspired, and brightly colored to change the look of your rooms.
