I am thinking spring over here today. With a week of chilly wet weather in the forecast and a big case of spring fever- I am craving all that warm summer sunshine feeling in the house.
What about you? Are you feeling the same? Well then this post is for you. Sharing 10 simple, easy and quick ways to add a bit of spring warmth and sunshine to your home right now.
#1. Clip a Few Branches
Adding spring to the house can be as easy as wandering outside to clip a few branches with blossoms from the yard. Though these are mostly just leafy branches from a plum tree last spring- you can use whatever you have leafing out or blooming to create a similar look.
#2. Potted Plants from the garden
Potted plants don’t just look good on the patio or in the garden. Bring them indoors to create a simple organic centerpiece, decor in the entry or even in the kitchen window.
#3. Flower filled table decor
Whether using real or faux- adding flowers to the table even when it isn’t being set for dinner or an occasion brings a burst of spring to your dining room.
#4. Bowls of Fruit
Add a chunky bowl filled with seasonal fruit to your coffee table, kitchen island or as a centerpiece in the dining room for an instant warm summer feeling. Think lemons, oranges, apples or grapes.
#5. Dried Flowers
Always a simple sweet way to add a touch of beauty to a room- dried flowers are easy to bring in into any space. Hang them on the wall, on a rack, from a rafter or pot rack- or from an old orchard ladder for instant charm. Shop lavender Dried Flowers here
#6. Bring Greenery indoors
A few potted olive trees and topiaries brought indoors is a simple way to add a burst of spring greenery even if outdoors is looking like winter yet. These are real olive- but for realistic faux with no work- these Olive trees look beautiful and are well priced.
#7. Spring Clippings
Simple spring clippings from the garden are perfect for styling a sweet mantel display. This was created using camellia blooms in small bottles with stacks of books.
#7. A Plate Wall
This design came about when I was looking for something interesting to fill this wall years ago. As I scoured through artwork and other collections- I decided to try a different idea and placed a collection of mismatched plates on the wall around a vintage mirror.
#8. Blue & White Planters & Pottery
Always a favorite year round- but especially in spring when filled with beautiful blooms- blue and white pottery adds so much beauty anywhere you place it.
#9. Floral Filled Bedding
Such a fun way to add a touch of spring in the bedroom- think floral filled sheets, duvet or throw pillows for a burst of spring sunshine.
#10. Basket of Faux Blooms
Such a simple and sweet way to add a touch of spring anywhere- without the worry. Faux flowers are so incredibly realistic these days that you can add them to your home anywhere and have people talking about if they are the real thing. One of my favorite ways to add them is with a touch of whimsy- such as in a tote on a bench or hanging on the wall. You can simply add a prearranged floral arrangement to a tote or basket- or use individual stems if you prefer.
