Spring Home Tour~ Sincerely Marie Designs
Spring is the perfect time to redecorate your home, especially if you’re thinking about moving on. Property experts regularly cite the months from March to June as the best time to put your house on the market as we all come out of our winter hibernation. *This post contains affiliate links and/or collaborative content.
If you’re looking to touch up your house this spring, here are some top tips on how to brighten up your surroundings to match the great outdoors.
Do you have some older-styled furniture that you love but that you feel is looking a little old and tired? Try to upcycle or repurpose it! Upcycling is better for the environment than always buying new furniture, but it also has a lot more personality and character too.
Bring the outdoors in
With flowers starting to bloom, trees turning green again and more animals scampering around, bring some of that natural light from sunshine into your living space by adding natural elements. You will also want to consider the light when placing furniture in a room.
Add some sprawling house plants on around the house to give a sense of blossoming inside as much as out. Trade in those cozy, heavier winter throws for furnishings with a softer touch, and throw open the curtains with tie-backs to let as much light in as possible.
If you prefer window treatments, swap out your heavy winter drapes for Oxford Eyelet Curtains in neutral colors for spring. Curtains really can have a massive impact on how your room looks, but so do the windows that they cover. Modern windows like those by Renewal by Andersen Windows look effortlessly stylish and up-to-date, which benefits not only your interior,m but the exterior design of your home too, especially when combined with the right curtains.
Whether you’ve got big spaces or a small apartment to work with, it’s time to cull the clutter and open up more space into your living areas.
For example, add a pegboard in the kitchen to clear off the worktops, giving the impression of more space.
Welcome spring in your entry by packing away all those heavy winter coats you won’t be needing for a few months into storage to give your entrance a fresher feel.
Pick the right Colors
Green is undoubtedly the color of spring and can act as the perfect base tone in your decor as you look to refresh it for the new season.
Take your cues from nature – get in the garden, go for a walk in your local park and see what colors you can bring back into the home. By connecting with the outside world, the synergy will add an extra energy into your living space.
Whether you’re looking to sell, or just want to liven up your surroundings, hopefully we’ve given you a few ideas to get you started on the path to that spring spruce-up. You might not have enough money to furnish your entire home in designer pieces, but if you can invest in one or two items, this can really enhance your home looks. Before you go out to buy your new furniture, paint and accessories, make sure you consider your financial situation so you can enjoy your home long into the summer and beyond.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and that you are ready to refresh your home for spring!
