Spring is the perfect time to change up your home’s decor…time for spring decorations! If you’re already spring cleaning, it’s easy to make small changes to at least one room of the home during the process. Here are five of the latest decorating trends and easy ways to try them.
Radiant Orchid Throws
Pantone announces its color of the year each spring, and 2014 is Radiant Orchid. It and other rich purple hues are great for interchangeable, seasonal accents like sofa cushions, fruit bowls, or photo frames. Throws are also functional for the spring, when you may need a little warmth one night but not the next.
DIY Wall Art
Macrame wall hangings, customized cork boards, and stick on/peel off decals are fast, easy, inexpensive, and trendy. A cork family tree is a fun twist on the classic idea of displaying family photos in the living room, and if you don’t know how to macrame, it’s popping up left and right at craft fairs and boutiques this season.
Dining Room Dhurrie
These thick, flat-woven rugs are an excellent alternative to the warm deep-pile rug you may have put out for winter. Available in many colors and patterns, its sturdiness and natural pest resistance make dhurries a wise choice for dining rooms. They’ve been popular in India for centuries, but today’s version is so versatile that you don’t need an exotic decor for it to work in your home.
Panel Track Room Dividers
For a number of years, housing trends have favored open floor plans. In many homes, this is not utilitarian, so people use room dividers. Panel track room dividers are an increasingly popular way to define spaces within an area. They slide easily away when you don’t need them, and they’re available in the warm grays you’ve been seeing everywhere this spring.
Nothing says spring like fresh blooms, and nothing in your bedroom is as easy to change as the sheets. Adding floral, especially pastel blossoms, to your bed linens can reinvigorate the room at a low cost. A new floral duvet cover can accomplish the same task, and if you still want more, add little dashes of floral in a second shade with lampshades, framed pieces of wallpaper, or pillow shams.
Try any or all of these spring decorating trends for seasonal flair without breaking the bank. Each can work with your existing furniture for a no-fuss update of your home’s decor.
