6 Ways Refresh Your Home for Spring

Who else is excited about Spring? I am so ready for the warmer weather, the leaves to grow back and beautiful, colorful blossoms.

I was watching one of my favorite shows recently and was inspired to write this post about how you can refresh your home for Spring. I have come up six ways, but please add more. What do you do to freshen up for home for a new season?

Refresh your Home for Spring Tip #1: Change your Throw Pillows

I definitely enjoy refreshing my accessories, and I sometimes do it multiple times within a season.  It’s all about how i’m feeling..:). One thing I do for sure is swap out the throw pillows in my living room. Psst, I don’t really swap out the pillows, (who has thousands of pillows for that?) I simply swap out my throw pillow covers. I tell you, removable throw pillow covers are a blessing. I sew my own envelope throw pillow covers and wash and change them whenever I want. It’s the easiest thing ever! I prefer the envelope style more because I don’t have to worry about the zipper getting worn out over time.

Refresh your Home for Spring Tip #2: Change or wash your curtains

I know it’s very easy to throw those curtain panels up and forget about them. I used to switch out my curtains one a year – lighter, sheer fabrics at the beginning of Spring and heavier fabrics in the Fall/Winter. However, I am having a problem with finding budget-friendly panels now that I switched to 108 inch length panels. If you don’t have this issue, you can easily find great deals on 84 inch panels at Target or Wayfair.  If your budget does not allow you to change your curtains entirely, wash give them a fresh look and hang them back up. Make sure to follow the cleaning instructions closely. It varies based on the type of fabric.

Refresh your Home for Spring Tip #3: Switch Decor Accents

This is my favorite part of decorating for a new season! I always look forward to new accessories that complete the visual appeal of a room. The first accessory that I change is my front door wreath. There’s nothing like a classy colorful flower wreath or a Easter-themed wreath to adorn your front door and to welcome visiting guests.

You can also add colors accents like lampshades (like this blue striped one or this yellow geometric one). Add colorful candle stands, spring-themed hand-written signs, books and vases.

Budget-Friendly Tip: Spray paint some accessories you already own for a new look or head to your local thrift store for some new-used accessories that could be revived with some chalk or spray paint.

Refresh your Home for Spring Tip #4: Change Sofa Blankets

I absolutely adore blankets on on my couch and trust me, it’s not for decorative purposes only. I live to cozy up under a blanket while watching my favorite shows or reading a good book. Changing your blanket is an opportunity to add a splash of color to your living space. Add fresh blankets to your bedrooms also for a Spring look.

Refresh your Home for Spring Tip #5: Add Greenery

There’s nothing like bring a piece of the outdoor into your home. The easiest way to add greenery to your decor is to buy faux or live plants. Live plants are cheaper, but require care, whereas you can just forget about faux plants (the fiddle leaf plant is my absoute favorite!)  On the other hand, live plants improves the air quality in your home and helps us feel more at ease with our surroundings. And who said, wreaths are only for your front door? Use then indoors as well for rich green accents.

Refresh your Home for Spring Tip #5: Change your Candles

It’s time to swap out those cozy nights, heavy cinnamon, candy apple, peppermint, snuggly sweater or winter wonderland-scented candle for light and airy scents like fresh linen, lavender, and spring bloom.

Bonus Tip: Improve your home’s curb appeal.

Purchase some easy to grow flower plants from starter-size pots. These could be easily found at the nursery of your local home improvement store. Don’t forget to mix in some shrubs as well.

Budget-Friendly Decor Elements for your Coffee Table

Coffee tables are a must when it comes to furniture elements to complete a living room space. It’s usually the focal point of your living room, with the exception of a fireplace if one is present.

In this post, I am going to list out and describe the five must-have elements for styling a coffee table. Plus a few options to choose from if you’re in the hunt for these items.

Must-Have Coffee Table Decor Accessory #1: Trays

Trays are definitely a must! It gives you a second canvas (surface) as a platform for decorating. It also helps to bring separation to the items you place on the tray so they don’t get lost or look insignificant on the larger surface of a coffee table. Your options for choosing the perfect tray are endless. There’s a vast variety of style to choose from – wood trays, galvanized metal trays (if you’re going for the farmhouse look), mirrored trays, or you can grab a plain wood tray from Target or a craft store and customize it to your style. Want to save some extra bucks? Visit your local thrift store to find a tray you can update to your taste. See my tray update DIY here.

Must-Have Coffee Table Decor Accessory #2: Greenery/Something Natural

Having something green is not only recommended for your coffee table, it’s a must. You should have something green or faux green item in every room of your home. Anything that represents nature is great! Bring nature indoors brings life to your room and is also calming. Ofcourse real life plants is what I would recommend but sometimes anything faux green is great too. Faux flowers or plant stems in a vase are perfect for a coffee table. You can also consider a budget-friendly option of doing it yourself. Visit your local dollar store for faux flowers and glass vases. You can probably make “something green/natural for less than $5!

Must-Have Coffee Table Decor Accessory #3: Vertical Decorative Items

Tall decorative pieces add dimension to you decor. A mix of small, medium and tall objects helps to bring the eye up and down to different levels and keep the coffee table interesting to look at. Some options for tall decorative objects include sculptures, tall decorative vases, candlestick holders (or use long candles on a smaller candle holder),  lanterns, etc.

Must-Have Coffee Table Decor Accessory #4: Something Horizontal

Having horizontal items like books on your coffee table also gives it dimension. You can use it to add height to an item and to add a pop of color to your decor. Books do double duty also, as they serve as something for your guests to pick and browse through when there’s a quiet moment.  Fashion or Autobiography books are great because they serve as conversational pieces as well.

Must-Have Coffee Table Decor Accessory #5: Something personal/unique

Having something unique and rare helps to bring personality and character to your coffee table. Try to find something that is not very common or is one-of-a kind. Scroll through some one-of-a-kind finds for ideas below!

In conclusion….

The size of these coffee table essentials  should depend on the size of your coffee table. If you have a large coffee table, then go big on the trays, vases and other items.  Be mindul of the dimensions of your table.

Also, consider the color and design pattern of your coffee table. If your coffee table is already a piece of art on it’s own, you will need less decor than if it is just plain and simple. Less is more for a coffee table in the image below.
