The Ultimate Guide On Decorating Every Room For Spring And Easter

When spring arrives it feels like a breath of fresh air after the winter. It’s also when it’s time to do some spring cleaning. This time of year is all about new beginnings and bringing the outside in, with its bright flowers and soft pastel colors. It's the perfect time to refresh your home's look and feel.

Not everybody is a natural when it comes to decorating. That’s why you need a guide to help you get the vibe right for the season. From the living room to the bedroom, and even the outdoor spaces, the right guide will help you add a touch of spring and Easter cheer. In this article, we will go over several tips to use for each room of the house.

The kitchen

The kitchen is the perfect place to start infusing your space with the spirit of spring and Easter. This season is an opportunity to brighten up this essential room with touches of joy and renewal. Begin by switching out everyday items like kitchen towels, placemats, and napkins for those that feature spring motifs or Easter themes. Look for designs with flowers, bunnies, eggs, or soft, pastel colors to instantly lift the mood of your kitchen.

A simple yet effective way to bring the season into your kitchen is through the use of centerpieces and arrangements. Consider placing high quality decorative bowls filled with painted Easter eggs or a mix of real and faux flowers on your kitchen table or island.

If you’re feeling creative, why not try your hand at a DIY Easter egg garland? It's a fun project that can involve the whole family. You can use real eggs that have been hollowed out and painted or opt for plastic eggs, which are available in various colors and sizes. String them together and drape your creation over a window, doorway, or along the edge of your kitchen shelves for a festive touch.

The living room

The living room is where we gather with family and friends, making it the perfect place to decorate for Easter and spring.

Pastel colors like soft pinks, baby blues, light yellows, and fresh greens are ideal for the living space. These colors can easily be thrown pillows, blankets, and even a new set of sheer, airy curtains that let in the spring sunlight. Adding floral themes can also add to the feeling of being surrounded by the rejuvenating outdoors. Think about adding a fresh bouquet of flowers in a central spot or some realistic fake flowers that last throughout the season.

Another way to bring the essence of spring into the living room is through a centerpiece for your coffee table or sideboard. Consider arranging a mix of candles, a few bowls filled with painted eggs, and some greenery.

The bedrooms

When decorating for the seasons or holidays, the bedrooms often get overlooked.

Your bed is the biggest thing in your room, so changing how it looks can really make a difference. Take off the heavy winter blankets and put on something lighter and in soft colors. You can find bed covers with flowers on them or in light colors like pink, blue, or yellow. Adding a few pillows with pictures of bunnies or eggs can also make your room look more like spring.

Putting up thin curtains that let in more light can make your room feel brighter and more open. If you like things to look more colorful, try curtains with flowers or in light spring colors.

You can also add small decorations to make your room feel more like spring. A vase with real or fake flowers on your bedside table, a picture with a spring theme on your wall, or a small wreath on your door are all good ideas.

Outside the house

The first area outside the house to look at decorating should be the front door. Putting up a spring wreath is a nice way to say hello to anyone who visits. You can make one with flowers and some Easter decorations, or you can buy a pretty one. It's a fun way to show off the season's colors right at your doorstep.

Then, think about plants. Putting pots of flowers that bloom in spring, like tulips or daffodils, near your door or in your backyard can really brighten up the place. If you have a place to sit outside, adding hanging baskets or pots with colorful flowers can make it look and feel cozy.
