Around this time every year I start craving warmer weather, pretty blooms, and pops of color. After a long, cold winter I am always eager to decorate the house for spring! (Even if we still have a few more weeks of cold here in Montana…) Today I am excited to introduce you to a blogger who shares my eagerness for spring, but that’s not the only thing we have in common – she shares my first name too! 😉 Ashleigh from Something About Ashleigh is here to share her top 5 tips to get your home ready for spring. I love how simple and practical these ideas are, and no matter where you are, a little touch of spring will cheer up your space! So without further ado, here’s Ash…
Hello everyone! My name is Ashleigh Clark and I’m an Interior Designer based out of Cleveland, Ohio. As Ashley mentioned above, I run the blog Something About Ashleigh. I am so excited to be over here on Joyfully Growing sharing my top 5 tips to get your home ready for spring. Ashley is so talented and I adore everything she shares with us!
Let’s get started with Tip #1!
Style a Spring Vignette
Creating vignettes throughout a home is one of my top ways to add color, style and fun! Spring vignettes are one of my favorites because of all the colors. I just love the greens, blues, pinks and yellows, and how they make you smile. Adding photo frames, vases, lanterns and candles are just a few examples of items you can add to your spring vignette.
Switch up Your Pillows
Anyone who knows me, or has read my blog, knows I’m a sucker for pillows. I truly feel they can instantly transform a space in a matter of seconds. Right now I’m loving the colors yellow and blush for my pillows to bring a little sunshine and spring indoors!
Bring in the blooms
Nothing says spring like flowers. I’m really into color blocking my flowers right now. Grouping like flowers together adds a lot of impact.
Create a Spring Tablescape
If you have a dining room in your home, creating a tablescape to display for the season gives you the opportunity to add colors and layers. I adore the rustic items mixed with the more whimsical pieces you see here for my tablescape. Some tips to consider when creating a tablescape are: choose items with varying heights, layer different materials, add unexpected items (like butterflies shown here), and don’t be afraid to mix patterns!
Change your artwork
My last tip to get your home ready for spring is to swap out your artwork. I just purchased these colorful city prints to have framed for spring and I’m beyond excited to have them installed!
