Hello my decorating divas! It seems spring has finally arrived after a few false starts and wow, does that sunshine and warm air change one’s perspective! Along with the arrival of spring and a change of season comes the motivation to make updates to our homes. I’m not talking major renos, although I know some of you are doing that, but rather simple, easy updates that will make your home feel lighter and brighter just like the weather outside.
This week I’m talking about ideas to refresh your bedroom decor for spring while keeping it comfortable and relaxed. I hope you find these ideas inspiring!
Crisp white linens are always a boost and I highly recommend 100% cotton in the highest thread count your budget can afford. Breathable and cooler, cotton will not only lighten the room but help you get a restful sleep as well. And while we want to be cooler than the scorching temps outside, we still want our bedroom to be cozy. Instead of a heavy throw more suited to winter, switch it out for a light coloured, cotton one that will still be comfy.
I don’t know about you but I don’t think we can ever have too many pillows (collective groan here from the significant others!). Nothing will update your bedroom quicker and easier. I’m loving these ones from Pier 1 Imports (www.pier1.ca) – so cool, casual and summery!
Displays of your fav things are perfect in every room and a simple change can re-energize and refresh your room. When creating the display, be sure to include items of varying heights to provide visual interest; if all your items are the same height use a pretty pedestal cake plate, a stack of plates or books to give them a boost! Remember an odd number of items will give your display more balance and I always love including an unexpected item to give the display a bit of whimsy.
As you may have guessed from my blog posts and pics that I love natural items and include them in every room and display. Natural items ground our decor and bring a less formal vibe to a room. Seashells and rocks are two of my favs, especially in the summer but flowers and potted ivy or succulents add a touch of life too.
How are you refreshing your decor this spring? Share your thoughts, ideas and pics – I love to see what you’re up to!
