As the last of the winter snow melts away and outdoor temperatures become increasingly warmer, it begins looking and feeling as if spring is just around the corner. However, it will not look or feel as if winter is completely gone when the living room and other areas of the home are still decorated with snowmen, snowflakes and other items with a cold weather theme. Put away the chilly decor, and begin decorating with warm weather in mind. Decorating a spring inspired living room is fun and incredibly easy. It is not necessary to buy expensive new furnishings or costly embellishments. With a few quick and easy changes, it will look as warm and inviting as an empty park bench on a breezy April afternoon.
Decorate a Coffee Table with Potted Spring Bulb Flowers
Flowers are iconic of spring, especially bulb flowers. They are a sure sign that warmer weather is near. Consider decorating your spring inspired living room with potted spring bulb flowers. Hyacinths will add color, beauty and amazing fragrance. Place the potted plant in the center of a coffee table or another prime location. After the flowers have bloomed, plant them outdoors according to directions. Allow the foliage to turn brown before removal to allow the energy of the plant to return to the bulb where it will be stored for the following season. After enjoying the beauty of the flowers in your living room, they will come back to greet you year after year.
Add Floral Inspired Throw Pillows and a Throw Blanket
Throw pillows and throw blankets can instantly transform a dreary looking sofa or loveseat into a furnishing that is vibrant and far more welcoming. When decorating a spring inspired living room, add pillows in beautiful floral hues. Place two solid throw pillows next to each arm, and top each pair with a pillow that has a pretty floral design. The living room will immediately spring to life. Drape a coordinating throw blanket over one side to provide even more color and appeal as well as something to cover up with on cooler days.
Replace Heavy Drapes with Inexpensive Sheers
Heavy drapes are ideal in the winter, especially when they are insulated. However, a spring inspired space should not be dimmed by drapes of any type. When spring rolls around, temporarily replace them with inexpensive sheers. Natural light will filter in to further enhance your spring inspired living room. Decorating further will not be necessary. Just a few simple changes along with a little sunshine is all that it takes to bring the heart and soul of your home into an exciting new season.
