Refreshing Your Apartment Decor for Spring

Spring has arrived, which means it’s finally time to switch gears from woodsy accents and jewel tones to florals and pastels. Decorating for spring is a fun way to add a little personality to your home and can be as simple as swapping out a candle and adding a pop of color with some throw pillows. Check out these simple tips for refreshing your apartment decor this spring.

Pick a Color Palette

When choosing new decor for your apartment, it’s a good idea to start with a color palette that inspires you. Traditionally, this season brings to mind the first flowers and a rainbow of pastels, but recent trends utilize more earthy tones and calming neutrals when refreshing the space. Whatever palette you choose, keep those colors in mind when determining decor for your home.

Swap Out Candles

Candles are a fairly inexpensive way to dress up any table. Although they are usually associated with chilly weather and cozy nights, swapping out your candle selection to match the season can be a great way to make your apartment feel fresh from the moment you walk through the door. It’s easy to find unique and colorful options to suit your style, including this candle inspired by Daylight Savings.

Add Some Throw Pillows

Throw pillow covers are a fantastic way to keep your decor in season, and you can even DIY your own, no sewing machine needed. If your space is mostly whites, greys, and browns, choose one or two colorful or patterned pillows for a playful contrast. Earth tones and natural or woven textures can also add interest and style to a calm, neutral environment.

Don’t Forget Plants

Nothing says ‘Spring’ quite like live plants! House plants have exploded in popularity in recent years, and it isn’t hard to see why. There is something about a potted Pothos or ZZ Plant that immediately makes a home feel cheery and inviting. There are lots of apartment-friendly plants out there that require little maintenance and have even been shown to purify the air of toxins. If you already have some greenery in your home, repotting them in decorative containers is a great way to refresh your decor.

Create a Centerpiece

You can use a potted plant, paper flowers, or a fresh bouquet of cut flowers in a floral centerpiece. Get creative! Adding a vase of daffodils or tulips to a table can instantly make a statement and tie the whole room together. Fresh flowers are beautiful, but if you want something that requires less maintenance and you enjoy a good project, try making your own paper flower bouquet instead.

These easy changes are just a few ways to have your home feeling warm and welcoming in no time.
