The sooner spring arrives, the more homemakers in Plano TX Frisco TX Allen TX want to ditch the dull colors of winter for the vibrance of spring. With these six inexpensive hints from the Chic Galleria, you can transform your home into the spring mecca you want.
1. Let Light In
As winter approaches we do everything we can to ignore its existence. To avoid cold drafts we hang heavy, dreary curtains with plastic lining the inside. The curtains are often thick with dull colors. Take down these curtains and replace them with shell roman shades or bamboo tortoise shells. Let the light in and thrive!
2. Add Life to All Rooms
Plant life will light up any dull room in you home. Add landscape such as spring flower arrangements or spider plants that are easy to care for. Strategically place vases around the home with the latest flower trends. A big tip is to purchase twice as many flowers as you think you’ll need- you can always find places for the extras. Flowers and plants are appropriate for all rooms in your home. Oh and they smell good, too!
3. Welcome Color!
During the holidays Christmas trees and decorations can cause horrible scratches and marks on your walls and molding. Paint over this damage with a bright, spring color.
4. Switch it Up
Remove all the pillows, blankets and covers designed with dark blues and greens and replace them with vibrant patterns. Add spring upholstery for a cheery look. Don’t forget thicker fabrics are only appropriate for cold winter decor as well.
5. Shop til you drop!
If you’re having problems coming up with your latest decorating project, head out for some retail therapy. Instead of purchasing little pieces and making them work together, visit a show room or home decor store to see what themes are in style for the spring.Take notes on your smart phone or photos to use for reference at a later date when decorating.
6. Make the change.
Don’t be afraid to move furniture around or try new decorating techniques. Spring is the perfect time to change your room to make it comfortable and alive. It’s also a great way to prepare for summer while breaking your winter blues. Take the time to find a theme that fits your personality and home without draining your bank account. Redecorating can be liberating and therapeutic, or plain fun.
