How to Update Your Décor for Spring

How to Update Your Décor for Spring


Spring is finally here and we can’t wait to embrace this season’s décor ideas and designs that will clearly send the signal that nature’s freshest season really has begun.

Flower Power

No matter how chilly it may still be outside there’s no surer way to declare it’s spring than with fresh flowers. At this time of year trees and flowering shrubs are starting to bud. Cut a big bunch of blooming branches – forsythia, cherry blossoms, pussywillows – and loosely arrange in a decorative vase. Not only will the air feel fresher but also the carefree, breezy structure adds a nice architectural touch.

Go for Green

When Pantone named Greenery its have-to-have hue for 2017, it became the year’s biggest color story. Green is the perfect color to update your décor for spring. Pair this vibrant shade with soothing tones of lemony yellow, peach or lilac – the colors of early blooms – for a light, bright makeover to any room.

Greenery, Pantone’s Color of the Year, is right in step with spring décor.

Spring Color Palette

If you want to make a bigger change this spring, rethink your wall color. Pastels are classic springtime colors, muted shades that feel soothing and welcoming. They add a friendly and refreshing ambiance to a room and get us out of perennial neutral gear of cream and beige. Here’s a pastel palette that instantly changes the vibe of a room.

You don’t necessarily have to paint walls to update your décor. New carpeting instantly lifts a room and changes how the space feels. And spring is the time of year when manufacturers introduce their newest products and styles. Think of your carpet as a blank canvas that complements wall color, furnishings and window treatments. For a spring theme, stick with colors found in nature and use other items in your home as your statement pieces. If new carpeting is on your spring clean-up list, don’t miss Karastan’s Live Beautifully sale with discount prices on SmartStrand, nylon and wool carpets.

 And if it doesn’t exactly feel like spring where you live, fake it. Find a fragrance to suffuse your home with an inspiring scent reminiscent of a glorious spring day. You’ll find lots of seasonal fragrances in candles, potpourri and diffusers with light, crisp and sweet notes such as lilac or freshly mown grass.

Potpourri is a colorful way to add nature’s fragrance to your home.
