Light & Breezy Decor

After you’ve packed away your winter decor in storage, your home might seem a little sparse. But warmer weather provides a chance to brighten up your space with cheerful accents. Consider these ideas.

Nautical themes: Bring the beach home with nautical decor, such as seashells, wicker furniture, knotted ropes, jute rugs, and blue-and-white decorative items.

Shades of green: Nothing says spring like nature’s favorite color. Incorporate shades of green by painting an accent table, scattering live plants throughout the house or adding patterned decorative pillows to a couch or chair.

Outdoor accents: Spruce up your outdoor living space with a bright area rug and strings of lights to encourage pleasant evenings outside. Create a space for a fire pit or chiminea to enjoy on chilly nights. Consider installing a hanging garden from an arbor or pergola to liven up your gathering space.

Florals: Easy to incorporate in throw pillows, shower curtains and artwork, floral patterns are a timeless way to bring the outdoors in. Brighten up your front door, dining table and shelves with fresh or artificial flowers.

Lightened-up textiles: Swap out heavy comforters for light-colored linen bedding, and add pops of color with pillow shams. Replace thick sherpa blankets on beds and couches with lightweight throws.
