Style Your Home for Spring

Posted by Treetopia in Decorating Tips | Home Decor

If you’re excited to decorate your home for spring, Treetopia has listed some home décor trends for 2013 to get you started

When the warm weather starts crawling in and the trees and flowers awaken as the snow starts to melt, you know that Spring is arriving to show Winter out the door. Add to that, you know that it’s time to get your home jazzed up and styled for the coming season. Here’s a look at some of what’s projected to trend this Spring:

 

Bold and Beautiful

Spring is the season of life and energy. Bring more life into your home by using bright and bold colors to decorate your space. You can paint the walls red or yellow to wake up the senses and boost the energy in your space, or use wallpaper with a bold color or floral patterns to shake things up.

Go Natural

Adding natural furniture pieces and décor in your home is definitely in this spring. From wicker chairs and tables to faux bois mattress and pillow cases, anything nature-inspired will make your home more in line with the trends. Modernized rustic pieces are fashionable this season so you can play with rustic décor, too. Furniture constructed from reclaimed wood is also a good way to go.

Bring in the Metals

If you want a sturdier feel in your home or if you’re not a fan of wicker or wooden furniture, here’s some good news for you: metals are in. Have fun in your home with metal furniture and metallic accents to give your rooms a polished look and make them sparkle.

Colors… Colors Everywhere

If you don’t want to focus on a specific bold color, you can simply decorate your home with all the colors you can find. Colors impact mood, and having bright, wonderful colors everywhere can create an air of excitement. You don’t even have to decorate the entire house; you can just choose an item in different colors and make use of them to give your room a livelier vibe. For instance, you can purchase different colored plant boxes and use them as storage bins for small items like keys, writing materials, or chargers for electronic devices. Just use your equally colorful imagination and discover other possibilities.

 Get Close to Nature

Nothing is more natural than nature itself. Adding plants to your home can be advantageous since plants release oxygen. Likewise, certain species are natural deodorizers so you can forego purchasing chemical air perfumes. If you don’t have enough floor space for them, you’re still in luck. Vertical gardens are all the rage so you can just stick those cute little plant boxes on the wall and let the plants grow there. If you want to make your home more stylish, you can purchase a gorgeous little bird cage, place your plant inside, and hang it anywhere you want. Maya Angelou may “know why the caged bird sings” but you will know why the caged plant will make your home look gorgeous.

When it comes to designing your home, it is best to strike a balance between comfort and style. This will not only make your home more beautiful, but also keep you in high spirits when you need to stay indoors.
