Best of all, many of them won’t cost you an arm and a leg, so you won’t have to dip into your savings to add a little extra style.
Use Foliage for Seasonal Color
Spring is the season where everything comes into bloom from cape jasmine to fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables. This year, add a lively touch to your living room by implementing lots of foliage on all of your surfaces. You can even use floor planters that provide a pop of spring pastel color.
You can use any type of foliage you like, but if you’re looking for something low-maintenance, consider simple bits of greenery like ferns. That won’t require constant watering to look healthy as summer approaches.
If you’ve got a green thumb, tulips, daffodils and peonies are popular spring flowers that’ll add plenty of bold color to your living room or any other space in your house.
Bring in Big, Bold Plants
Seasonal foliage is an exceptional way to bring the outdoors in. To make an even bigger statement, look to bold plants that’ll add a ton of personality to the room you spend the most time in outside of your bedroom and kitchen.
What’s an ideal big, bold plant for your space? Trees like palms, rubber trees and dragon trees will help you mix in a ton of greenery to your room. They’re also very easy to take care of, and if you’ve got a large room, you can easily use two or even three of them.
Not sure about having live trees in your home? Look for good quality silk trees instead. They’ll last forever and nobody will be able to tell the difference unless they touch them.
Implement Indigo Blues
When you think of spring you probably immediate imagine pastel pink, chalky green and soft, almost gem-like tones that the season is known for. These colors can all bring wonderful style to your room, but if you’re searching for something a little different this year, indigo blue is going to answer the call.
The hot color of the season that isn’t a pastel tone, indigo blue provides a rich, slightly more subdued bit of color to your kitchen, dining room or living room. Use it for everything from glazed pottery for your foliage to seasonal glassware, table runners and throw blankets.
You can even apply a coat of indigo blue paint on an accent wall if you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty! Best of all, that indigo blue paint will still look good come fall, so there won’t be any rush to cover it up with something more subdued.
Go for Geometrics
Vibrant color is a big part of spring décor, but it’s not the only part of the equation. If you’re looking to add some serious depth and dimension to your home, geometric shapes are an excellent way to do it. There are also a wide range of options for adding geometric shapes to your space depending on your budget and home.
How do you implement geometric prints in your home? Here are a few different options:
- Try geometric wallpaper. This is a great option if you’ve been thinking about painting your room or making a major design change.
- Use geometric planters. Oversized floor planters, planters on stands and glazed pots placed on shelves and tabletops can work wonders for your décor.
- Add pillows or throw blankets that feature a geometric pattern. Go for accent pieces in spring colors to really add something new to your space.
Pick the Pantone Color of the Year
The Pantone color of the year plays a big role in setting design trends for the next twelve months. This year that color is living coral, a lovely combination of rich pinks and subtle reds that have dusty, smoky pastel feel.
What can you do with living coral? It’s a great option for accessories like blankets and pillows for your sofa, but it’ll also look great on an accent wall or all four of your walls in the living room.
Got an old piece of furniture you don’t love anymore? Try a little spray paint in the Pantone color of the year to bring it back to life.
Add Removable Wall Tiles
Adding tile to your walls is an incredible way to bring a new texture to your home. If you’re renting or just not sure you want to commit to the idea long-term, removable wall tiles are an excellent choice.
Easy to put in place, you can find removable wall tiles in classic looks like subway tile, natural stone and even slate. For a spring fling, think about more seasonal colors like pink or terra cotta tile. You can always take them down and put up a fresh coat of paint when winter comes!
Step into spring by sprucing up your living room with these design-friendly ideas. Whatever your home’s look, you can bring one, two or even all of these ideas into your design scheme without making major changes to your home and spending a small fortune on renovations.
