Spring into Spring With Home Decorating Ideas from the Pros

Spring is a time for renewal and rebirth, a time for fresh looks and fresh ideas. And there’s no better time to bring new life to your interiors than the spring season. It can be as simple as fresh flowers or a special artifact you discovered in an antique store. Spring is the perfect opportunity to display your creativity, your sense of style and your love of nature and natural things.

Dering Hall, a digital publishing and content site for the design industry, had some of its staff share ideas on crafting a well-designed interior that’s perfect for the season in an article on Forbes.com.

Elevate Table Settings with Flowers

“For a spring table setting, fresh cut flowers are a must. There is no better way to welcome in seasonal blooms than making them center stage at your next gathering. I love using different styles of containers, each unique, and in varying heights. Keep the floral selection to one type of bloom, so there is an element of consistency. Pair your vignette with details like woven chargers and natural linens to create texture and interest. Allow the gifts of spring to fill your home with lightness and joy!” — Matthew Caughy

Enhance a Foyer with Statement Accents

“In the spring months, the best way to make a lasting impression in the foyer is to have a colorful plant or fresh flowers from the garden. In this foyer, we chose white orchids and placed them in a bright blue bowl. Finding seasonal accents can help change up the look throughout the year. Vibrant accessories, interesting vases and even artwork can lighten up a room from the muted winter tones. The blue lacquered tray, accessorized with books and a glass sculpture, complements the color scheme. The backlit artwork with bright tones sets the stage for the boldness throughout the home.” — Sarah Eilers

Accessorize with Bright Rugs & Mirrors

“I like to accessorize with unexpected pops of color and light-reflecting decor. Bring the fresh natural feel of spring into a room with a palette of bright blues, greens and whites. Grounding the space with a vibrant rug creates a base on which to layer the colors of the season. Position a mirror to reflect the light and colors of the garden.” — Leslie Price

Upgrade Throw Pillows

“For an easy spring update to any room, swap out pillows with a bright, colorful pattern. Here, we used the same interchangeable print in two different colorways and accented it with a vibrant green solid. It gives the room a fresh update to bring you out of winter.” — Nadia Watts

Mix Patterns

“Nothing welcomes in the spring season like a fabulous floral wallpaper. We selected this gorgeous silver/sage wallcovering for a client’s dining room to really make a statement. Mixing complementing colors and patterns in the rug and throw pillows adds additional layers of interest. We finished it off with a bit of glamour by installing the modern, crystal chandelier. The end result is a wonderfully welcoming room in any season.” — Lara Michelle

Embrace Nature-Inspired Hues

“A basic foundation of color composition is the solid understanding that any two colors that exist together in nature will always work successfully. And what are the first colors that signal the arrival of spring? Fresh, vibrant greens that always skew more yellow than blue, touches of daffodil yellow and hyacinth violet—juxtaposed against little bits of remaining winter grey, cloud white and sky blue, and there you have it. After all, no one is a better colorist than Mother Nature!” — Scott Sanders

Consider Greenery

“Greenery is a must for any interior; it literally brings life into a space. Don’t overestimate your green thumb, though. The fiddle leaf fig you see in this room may not be the right plant for your room, given lighting and temperature conditions. When it comes to choosing greenery, consult the experts.” — Terri Ricci

Choose a Calming Bedroom Color Palette

“Blue is always a safe choice for a bedroom. The color evokes feelings of calmness and serenity even if it is a brighter hue. The addition of crisp white adds an instant freshness that is exciting for spring. Rich and luxurious textiles like silk and velvet add a softness that makes you want to enjoy your favorite book with a cozy blanket. And finally, wonderful bedding is key for a restful night’s sleep.” — Munger Interiors

Don’t Overlook the Powder Room

“A powder room is the perfect space to go big, go bold and give guests something to talk about. Use the energy that comes with the season of renewal to make a bold statement.” — Jean Alan
