I always know when spring is approaching because the weather starts to get warmer and the days become a little longer. While I enjoy the climate changes that spring brings, the thing that excites me the most about the arrival of the season is the fashions, both in my wardrobe and in my home.
As each new season approaches, I decorate my home with decorations inspired by the time of year. This is something that I learned from my Abuela (grandmother). Each season she puts away the decorations from the past season, such as holiday decorations and table wear, and refreshes her space to welcome the new season. Primavera (spring) is her favorite season to decorate for and she must have passed on that affection for the season to me, because I also love to decorate my home for spring.
Since I recently purchased new living room furniture, I added brightness and vivid colors into my living room space that are perfect for the arrival of spring. With just a few additions and tricks, you can also get your living room ready for the season!
How To Brighten Your Living Room Décor For Spring
Fresh Flowers- Flowers are always a staple on my coffee table because I love how they had a spark of colorful life into my living room décor. When it comes to fresh flowers, spring is my favorite season because Tulips are in bloom! They come in a variety of colors, but I personally love the red ones best because they contrast beautifully with their green stems.
Tip: While fresh flowers are beautiful, they can get expensive. If you would like a budget-friendly alternative, opt for silk flowers instead.
Pop Color with Decorative Pillows– Decorative pillows are a fun way to add a dose of vivid color to your living room. Depending on the color of your furniture, select a spring color that compliments your furniture and the design aesthetic of your space.
Since I have dark neutral furniture (grey and black) I kept my yellow accessories and added splashes of berry tones such as raspberry (red/pink) and strawberry. The combination of colors play well together, as well as the contrast in textures and prints.
Tip: Don’t be afraid to mix colors, prints, and textures, as well the sizes of your decorative pillows.
Bold Wall Art- Like decorative pillows, wall art is another easy way to transition your living room space from winter to spring. Add a jolt of energy to your walls by changing your wall art to chic elements of spring, such as a beautiful flower print on canvas. For a more modern option, opt for wall art with geometric shapes in berry hues.
Incorporate Some Brightness– Coming from a Latino family, I’ve always been surrounded by brightness. My Hispanic heritage has a lot to do with my bold sense of style and passion for color.
One of my favorite ways to incorporate brightness into my home décor is with a new candle. I feel that this is a must to bring bright notes into my life and home.
While shopping at Target for my new living room wall art, I discovered the Glade® Radiant Berries™ Candle. This yumberry colored candle has a bright scent that helps transform a space into spring and I love how well it fit into my spring-ready living room décor.
