Bring the Joys of Spring to Your Bedroom
It's time to sweep away the cobwebs and let the sun shine in. Bring the joys of spring to your bedroom with these fresh, colorful and vibrant ideas.
The arrival of a new season doesn’t just mean changing your wardrobe. It can also be reflected in the fabrics, colors, textures, and decorations you use in your home. With our ideas, you’ll be able to bring the joys of spring to your bedroom in no time.
The joys of spring – an explosion of color
Colors can transport us to new places, connect us with different moods, and make us feel very different emotions. While fall colors usually come in the form of earth tones, spring decor normally features pastel colors, including pinks, yellows, blues, and greens.
You can also use more intense tones to bring the joys of spring to your bedroom, especially those that are often associated with the sun. Oranges, reds, and fuchsia are all welcome.
Furthermore, try to swop your warm winter bed sheets for lighter fabrics such as linen or cotton, and opt for a color palette that better reflects the new season. With just a few small changes, you can create a truly spectacular look.
Let the flowers grow!
Flowers and springtime go hand in hand. Why not place a few small vases of flowers on your bedside table or dresser? African violets, gardenias, azaleas or bellflowers are all fantastic options. These flowering houseplants are beautiful and colorful – perfect for spring!
However, you don’t have to limit yourself to actual flowers. Why not buy new floral bed sheets? Maxi prints are a classic, while Liberty prints are ideal for creating a more romantic look. Add plain cushions in the same tones as the flowers and you’ll have the perfect spring bedroom.
The joys of spring – natural details
Natural fiber furniture is more fashionable than ever. And what better time to make the most of it than in the spring and summer? We recommend buying lamps, rugs, or even a rattan armchair like the one above. You can also find some charming headboards made from sisal or burlap. These are great for giving your bedroom that boho-chic look.
Alternatively, you could opt for natural fiber bed sheets. As well as being softer and fresher than synthetic materials, these fabrics are kinder to your skin and more environmentally-friendly.
If you’re looking for a more radical change, you could go so far as to repaint or re-wallpaper your walls. Green is a great option. If you choose to use wallpaper, be bold, and look for floral, fruit, or even animal-inspired prints. These are available from most decorating stores.
If you’d rather be more conservative with your spring decor, we’d recommend adding paintings and photos inspired by nature. One idea is to hang a collection of paintings on the wall directly behind your bed to give your room a fresh new look.
The right lighting
This is a fantastic way to bring the joys of spring to your bedroom. Incorporating a couple of floor lamps at different points around the room will allow you to create softer, less direct lighting. You could also decorate with romantic fairy lights, and burn scented candles with subtle, floral fragrances to really highlight that spring feel.
Have some “me” time
Spring is a good time to set aside some time and space for your favorite hobbies and interests. For example, you could create a reading corner in your bedroom, filling it with lush plants and bright spring colors like blue and green. If you prefer, you could make your own chill-out area, creating a relaxing space where you can practice yoga or meditation in the evenings.
Do you like painting? Simply place a folding screen and your easel next to the window, and let your creative juices flow. Take some time to connect with yourself, and fill your soul with all the positive things that make you happy.
In short, to bring the joys of spring to your bedroom, you need to open the door to nature, letting it shine through in the fabrics, colors, and shapes. Needless to say, plants and flowers will be your greatest allies. In no time, you’ll find yourself full of positive energy.
