Spring Spruce Ups for the Living Room
Spring spruce ups are a way to inject a fresh, new vibrancy into your home. Just as the weather is moving from bleak to beautiful, so too is the scenery outdoors. Colorful flowers are bursting through the once frozen ground, happily rising from their winter beds. Likewise, lively greenery is emerging to coat the once-barren tree branches. Everywhere, life is new again. It’s the perfect time to bring some new decorating life into your home. It’s the perfect time for a spring spruce up, and the perfect place to start is where the family relaxes and socializes together: the living room.
Spring Spruce Ups for the Living Room:
Clean. First thing’s first: you need to do some deep cleaning. Clean floors, rugs, pillows, drapes, blinds, walls, baseboards, lampshades, and upholstery. In other words, freshen up all your surfaces so they sparkle like new! This will enliven and invigorate the space in the same way the weather is livening up outside.
Paint. Put a fresh coat of paint on the walls and the ceiling. Consider changing up the color a bit by going a shade or two lighter than your current color. If your walls are white, perhaps go a bit cooler with a pale blue. Keep the same color palette if you wish, or switch things up and choose a new shade. However, unless you plan to completely redecorate, keep your new color compatible with your existing furnishings and accessories. If you’re not sure what colors work with your décor, call us at Lady Builder Shops. We’re designers as well as online retailers, and are here to personally help our customers.
Accessorize. An easy way to spruce up the living room for spring is with a few new accessories. You don’t need to go overboard or spend a lot of money. Add pops of color with new throw pillows in light, summery fabrics like linen or cotton. Replace or add some new décor items like vases, candleholders, picture frames, or decorative trays. Create some visual interest on the walls with a bold new mirror or some fresh artwork.
Illuminate. It’s springtime, so let there be light! Brighten up your living room with some new table lamps, sconces, or ceiling fixtures. One of our favorite lamps, the Chelsea House French Flower Lamp, is the perfect blend of luxury and casual with its gold accents and gold and white flower bouquet base. It instantly spruces up the living room with its spring flair. Light up your space and lighten your spirits!
Indulge. If your budget allows, consider indulging in a new statement piece to spruce up the living room in a big way. A new couch, loveseat, or accent chair will instantly up the comfort level of the room. Similarly, swapping out a dated or worn out piece of furniture like your coffee table or a bookcase will draw the eye away from the old and dreary and into the fresh, inviting look of spring.
