After the turmoil and chaos of spring cleaning, we sometimes get to a point where we have a clean home, but it feels somewhat empty or missing something. Fortunately this means that you can redecorate! I have used this blog entry to give you some broad strokes bases to cover when considering your personal redecorating design for your domicile. I hope that it gives you some inspiration.
Color is probably where you should start. I like pastels for spring, but I’m not a fan of yellow (I don’t judge you if you do), so I usually aim for muted blues, greens and reds. I like to use gray to make spring colors pop (and to prevent pastel overload), but be careful to choose the right shade to compliment the tones of colors you are choosing for your room.
Texture is a very important component to consider when redecorating, and it is one that people often overlook. Don’t mix shear and rough textiles in the same room, for example. Mostly, just try to keep your textures consistent room to room, from your upholstery to your pillows to your curtains.
Speaking of which, drapery can really bring your room together. It is great for inserting seasonal themes into a room. You can either choose to link the character of all your rooms, or differentiate the character of all your rooms by utilizing drapes and curtains. Two sets of drapes can make the same room feel very different. It is a good idea to have sets of drapes for at least the colder and warmer months, if not all four seasons. Remember color and texture when choosing your drapery and you will have a ship shape home.
Art is another important consideration for your home. One should not put two clashing pieces in the same room (unless of course, a jarring effect is what you are going for). Older art is a great way to make a room cozy while lively abstract expressionist art is great if you want a room to feel active and joyful.
Lastly, don’t forget plants when redecorating for spring. Flowers and greenery help everyone feel and breathe better.
I hope this helped. Good luck in spring!
