As we continue to navigate this difficult time, we are trying to focus on the bright new beginnings that come with the spring season. Although we haven’t fully turned the corner into spring here in Chicago, we are seeing many signs of the new season like fresh greenery and more sunlight. While we spend more time than ever before at home, we’re drawing inspiration from the spring season to freshen up our spaces. Today we wanted to share some of the ways that you too can transition your space from winter to spring.  

ADD A POP OF COLOR IN THE KITCHEN

Let’s start with one of the spaces you might be spending more time in these days, the kitchen! Introduce a rug or runner that features bright colors or bold prints. This will bring new colors into the kitchen that you can play off of with fresh flowers or kitchen towels. We love how the bright runner in the kitchen at #yesifitswhiteclient compliments the potted plant just perfectly!

LIGHTER PRINTS AND FABRICS

Who doesn’t love a new throw pillow? Swap your wintery plaid and faux fur pillows for lighter linen pillows and soft floral prints. You can introduce a new spring color or opt for textured neutrals that still brighten the space. The custom pillows at #blendedandblessedclient pair perfectly with spring flowers!

ENHANCE NATURAL LIGHTING

To fully enjoy the longer, brighter days, make the most of the natural lighting in your home. Hang a mirror on the wall adjacent to the window or across from it. This will reflect the natural light back into the space and brighten it up a bit. The natural lighting in this darling bedroom at #goingthedistanceclient accentuates all the delicate spring inspired details.

GO GREEN

Bring the great outdoors inside! Fresh (or faux) plants are a simple way to liven up any space and brighten your day. They can easily enhance a console table, mantle or coffee table - we added a touch of greenery in all three places at #bestfriendclient! Neutral pots and vases are great because you can easily transition between spaces and seasons. While we prefer maintenance free faux greenery, some fresh tulips in a pretty vase are always a treat during the spring season!
