Plant seeds for good vibes to grow.

Add greens to your daily diet.

Depending on the climate where you live, springtime might still be a little too chilly for you to venture outside. But it sure is tempting when you see all the snow melt and the lush greenery beginning to grow. If you long for outdoor adventure, bring nature inside with plant designs that incorporate vibrant, natural hues.

Aim for calming and restorative.

What does your happy place look like? Most people want their home to feel like a retreat where they can reach a calm mental state. If you want your space to have a similar effect, surround yourself with spring decor that makes you feel relaxed and restored. Consider a palette of soft, neutral colors to mimic the tranquil environs of a spa.

Build a paradise for your pets.

Build a paradise for your pets.

One of the biggest recent interior design trends is “barkitecture.” If you enjoy spoiling your fur babies rotten like most pet parents, keep them in mind while redecorating your home. Transform their sleeping area into their own luxury bedroom where they can comfortably nap, purr, and game online with their pals. Add style to their corner of the house with pet designs made by fellow animal lovers.

Awaken your senses.

For many people, winter is long and dreary. This makes it easy to slip into a mental funk where all you want to do is sleep the day away. Spring, on the other hand, is the light at the end of the tunnel. Reinvigorate yourself for the warm months ahead with the boldest, brightest colors you can find. Seeing those colors in the morning is like an extra shot of espresso. WOO!

Teach a lesson in Dark Academia.

Teach a lesson in Dark Academia.

Over the last few years, Dark Academia has emerged from the dusty libraries of centuries-old universities and grown into its own internet subculture. Aesthetically, it’s the middle ground between preppy and goth, and has a distinct affinity for classical literature and art. If you enjoy books and have a taste for the dark and unusual, this style is the perfect vibe for your reading room or personal library.

Take the path most traveled.

The spring season inspires lots of traditional home decor with floral patterns and pastel colors you’d see painted on an Easter egg. If that’s your jam, it’s perfectly okay to lean into those themes, even if they seem a little obvious. Floral designs give any room a fresh, energetic feel and celebrate the vibrant renewal the season brings.

Take the path most traveled.

Keep distractions to a minimum.

Appreciate the simple things in life.

One of the main objectives of spring cleaning is to declutter your home. When it comes to interior design, a minimalist aesthetic accomplishes the same thing—it reduces visual clutter. If you want to create an environment that makes it easier to focus and relax, choose spring decor with simple but fetching designs that won’t overwhelm the eye.

Think of decor in the abstract.

Abstract decor is the more adventurous, outgoing cousin of minimalist decor. It’s not necessarily loud or chaotic, but it commands attention with its bold colors, geometric shapes, and dramatic contrast. It’s the focal point of the room. If you want to make a statement with your spring decor, choose abstract designs that have an imaginative flair.
