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.
Bring in Some Greenery
Nothing says “hello” to spring quite like plants and fresh greenery do. Add a new plant baby to your growing collection, or try out a low-maintenance starter houseplant if it’s your first time growing.
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
With the changing season comes not only a need to lighten the color palette, but to lighten your fabrics as the weather (hopefully) heats up. Swap your heavy duvet for a lighter quilt or linen comforter that won’t have you sweating.
Switch Your Pillows and Blankets
Say a final goodbye to your velvet or holiday pillows that may still be lingering and welcome in some fresh cushions and blankets instead. A simple way to instantly refresh your home, pillows in soft pastel colors and breezy linen blankets will have your home ready for the warmer weather in no time.
Try a Fresh Coat of Paint
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.
Hang a Spring Gallery Wall
Now is the perfect time to refresh your wall décor, and a gallery wall is a beautiful and personal option. There are print shops dedicated to the art of the gallery wall that allow you to build a coordinating pack of art pieces, or you can purchase matching frames and hang meaningful photos.
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.
Incorporate Fresh Coffee Table Décor
One of the greatest things about styling a coffee table is that the possibilities for decorating are endless. A simple update in your home for spring might include an easy swap of older books or décor for fresh new finds.
Add a Bright Rug
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
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.
Or Faux Flowers and Greenery
Don’t have much of a green thumb? Adding faux flowers and greenery to your space brightens it up the way any plant would without the maintenance. Faux greenery is not like it used to be, and there are so many chic options for faux plants that not only look realistic, but will brighten up any room.
Consider Rattan Accents
Rattan has been having a major moment in the design spotlight recently. Cane and rattan furniture and accents give a gorgeous, naturalistic look to a home that will instantly refresh it for the spring, and there are endless options to consider. Swap out your lighting for rattan pendant lights and lamps, or add a rattan accent table or stool to a corner in need of some TLC.
Set a Fresh Spring Table
No bunnies are needed in this table décor. To set a fresh table for spring, simply swap out darker dishes and napkins with crisp, bright whites and neutrals. Add some pastel dinnerware and gold flatware for a warm and inviting look to the table.
Don't Shy Away From Floral Wallpaper
If you associate floral wallpaper with an elderly basement, think again: there are so many gorgeous floral options that make a chic statement in a small space like a bathroom or bedroom. Add a temporary wallpaper to an accent wall for a bold spring addition with a ton of payoff.
Don't Forget the Laundry Room
To add some freshness to your daily routine, why not spice up your laundry room and get it ready for spring as well? This gorgeous space features pastel pink cabinetry and faux florals to liven and refresh laundry day.
Spring for Some Floral Print
We’re focusing on non-cheesy décor here, we haven’t forgotten. But, florals really are gorgeous for spring, and there are so many chic ways to try out this print for the spring season.
Try some vintage-inspired floral cushions as seen in this gorgeous bedroom, or lean into that cottagecore-feel with floral dinnerware. All are amazing spring decorating options that still will remain stylish and chic.
