Spring is a time of renewal, the season when days brighten, flowers bloom, spirits lift, and hope springs eternal. It’s also a time when home decorators get a particular type of spring fever that has them itching for a deep spring cleaning, and game for a spring fling to freshen up their home decor. Decorating for spring can be as simple as a vase of tulips on a windowsill, a pretty spring table setting, a new pastel wall color, or adding more green. Shake off your winter blues and check out these seasonal decor ideas that will help you celebrate the joys of spring.

Bold Florals

Just because your apartment bedroom is painted matte black doesn’t mean you can’t bring some spring bling into your home. Interior designer Alvin Wayne used a bold floral statement piece above the bed that is perfect for spring but right for anytime of the year. Bud vases filled with flowers that pick up on any of the colors in the artwork add balance on bedside tables and bring the color to the rest of the space.

Bookshelf Styling

Learning how to style a bookcase so it becomes an elegant part of a room rather than a distraction is vital to a successful scheme. So whether you are a book hoarder, are obsessed with stunning coffee table books or love a paperback novel, you can find out how to artfully display them.

It may be that you are searching for bookshelf ideas to elevate your collection of tomes at the same time – the material, layout and shape of these can be integral to your display, too. And don’t forget your favorite keepsakes – style a bookshelf so it holds memories, too.

Change the Pillow Covers

An easy way to freshen your decor for spring is to change out the accent pillows, swapping warm winter textures like wool and faux fur for crisp cottons in pastel hues. In this living room from Desiree Burns Interiors, springy pastel blue patterned and solid pillow covers complement the natural woods, woven elements, white upholstery, and walls of windows bringing in an abundance of natural light.
