Christmas is over, the days are starting to get longer, but Spring just isn’t quite here yet… It’s this awkward in between time when it comes to decorating, don’t you agree?
While we enjoy the snow storms and wait for the first daffodils to appear (heck, that’s still at least a couple of months away!) I’ve got some lovely ways you can brighten up your winter days with the softest of colors.
Winter to Spring Decor Ideas – Let’s Talk Colors
Take a handful of grey, sprinkle in some soft blushes and add a few pops of black and brass into the mix. You’ve got an instant transition from dreary Winter tones to warm, early Spring colors. It’s such a lovely transition and as the months progress, you can add stronger pinks or even the occasional bright yellow to make your decor sunshiny and happy. This color scheme, while happy, is still muted enough to beautifully fit into these last Winter months.
Pillows & Decor Pieces – the Instant Switch
Switching out a few pillow cases and adding a handful of new decor pieces instantly gives your home the change of season you’re looking for. That’s what I love so much about keeping our furniture and walls neutral. It’s the most inexpensive way of making small changes with a big impact.
I personally really love H&M Home. You can raid the site and find really pretty pillow cases for cheap while not having to buy the pillow insert with every new pillow you find at local stores. This saves you money AND space!
Faux Flowers to the Rescue
There is zero shame in adding a bunch of faux flowers! I mean, who doesn’t love a gorgeous bouquet of real, fresh flowers? But we all know how long they last – and how expensive they can be. A great alternative are faux flowers that look amazingly real. Terrain has some gorgeous, although pricy twigs and if you’re looking for a more affordable bunch, check out your local Hobby Lobby.
Favorites for the early Spring would be Hellebore, Magnolia and maybe some Ranunculus, all in pretty whites and soft pinks. Later in the season you might be tempted to switch them out with Tulips and Daffodils!
…and Don’t Forget the Candles…
Sure sure, the main candle season might be over, but keep them around! Not only do they bring the coziest feeling into your home, you can also splurge on a springy scent to freshen up your rooms! Think anything with Peony, Jasmine or Gardenia!
And that’s it for today’s post! I hope you enjoyed these Winter to Spring decor ideas and start filling your home with some early Spring colors 🙂
