Keyanna Bowen

We see it year after year—with the end of the winter season comes an influx of pastels, rabbits, and ceramic eggs that signify it's time for springtime décor. Though these pieces are nostalgic and reminiscent of spring past, seasonal decorating doesn’t always have to detract from the current design of your home. And that’s where we come in.

Here at MyDomaine, we think decorating for spring simply means adding brightness, light, and simple refreshes throughout your home. There are many ways to reinvigorate your home's design while still feeling seasonal and fun.

You’re sure to fawn over these 18 ways to get your home spring-ready—with no Easter eggs in sight.

Add Light and Airy Décor

When we think about spring, we think about recharging, reorganizing, and incorporating brightness into our homes after a darker winter season. Add décor throughout the home that feels simplistic and airy: think serene colors, lightweight textures, and soft hues of white or woods.

Swap Out Bed Linens

There is nothing like a good DIY to kick off the start of the spring season. If your walls have you uninspired lately, consider giving them a new look with a fresh new color. Painting will not only refresh the look of your home, but it will also inspire a new color palette for a room you’ve been dreaming of switching up.

And Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinetry looking a little dull or dated? With the warmer spring weather approaching, now would be a great time to take them off their hinges, sand them down, and give them a fun coat of paint.

This is a great idea for all your cabinets, just your uppers or lowers, or your kitchen island.

Swap Out Curtains

It’s springtime—and we’re looking to let the light in. Why not take down a heavier drape and let a sheer, airy curtain do the talking for the spring season? 

Plus, when the weather does warm up, it would be lovely to easily access your windows and open them—and that’s much easier without a large drape.

Rugs really set the tone for a room and establish a style, complementing furniture and wall colors perfectly. If your rug isn’t making the cut anymore, swap it out for something a bit more vibrant and fun, one that will ring in a new season of freshness and light.

Go for Neutrals

Light and airy living room.

Seasonal color palettes are fun to decorate with and all, but sometimes, the beauty is in the neutrals. Instead of leaning heavily into classic spring pastels and Easter egg hues, a more subtle way to decorate for spring is to go for neutral, earthy décor, as shown above.

Mixing wood tones and textures give neutrals a bit of spice and visual interest.
