Whenever the time comes to transition your interior design from one seasonal décor into the other, it’s always a lot of fun. Every year, this process allows you to make some decoration tweaks to your interior and design a space perfect for welcoming the season ahead. What’s more, the best part is that you get the chance to make something new each year.
Meaning that if you liked your last year’s décor but you wish to change it up a bit, you absolutely can. However, while transitioning from spring to summer isn’t all that difficult, going from winter décor to spring décor can be a bit tricky. That being said, here are a few ways you can make this transition feel as natural and as seamless as possible.
Time for shopping!
Obviously, the first thing you’ll need to do before anything else is decide on what you wish your new décor to look like. However, this step can sometimes be a bit difficult as you don’t really know what will be in style this season. That’s why you should first browse online stores and look for fun and unique décor pieces that can easily refresh your living space. Also, make sure you create a design that won’t feel unfinished but will still offer room to grow. For instance, you can shop unique Buffalo pieces for your walls, yet leave the center of your table blank or with minimal décor. That way you can easily add more pieces in the future, as the newest spring trends begin to emerge.
Make the transition smooth
Next, when transitioning from winter to spring décor, you don’t want to make a huge change all at once. Instead, try to make this process feel smooth and natural. When changing up your interior décor, it’s not really “out with the old, in with the new”. Instead, you should get rid of all the pieces that undoubtedly scream “winter” but leave some more subtle pieces of décor. Then you can easily add more spring-feeling elements to your already existing décor. Do expect that your décor will continue to undergo some changes as spring reaches full bloom, but that’s entirely common. Additionally, this will be the perfect time to make even bigger changes to your interior, such as repainting the walls, if you feel like it. Just make sure all of your décor projects fit into your budget.
Let the nature in
One of the easiest ways you can introduce more spring vibes into your interior design is by bringing more natural elements in. Fresh flowers and small décor elements, such as moss, branches and tree bark are a great way to start. These are super easy to come by, especially at the end of the winter, yet they are really effective. What’s more, they won’t cost you a single cent. When flowers are concerned, it’s always a better idea to go for potted blooming plants instead of fresh cut flowers. However, you can also add beautiful faux flowers to your design and fill the room with floral aromas by using scent diffusers and scented candles.
Be picky with materials
In the end, we also need to mention the materials. Winter décor is usually filled with various materials that bring forth feelings of warmth and coziness. However, as we move closer to spring and warmer days, these thick and heavy materials should be replaced with something lighter. So, instead of fluffy and cozy throw blankets, think in terms of cotton, linen and tropical wool. Bamboos is also a popular choice, so you may want to include it as well. Additionally, think in terms of various metallics and glass when it comes to mall décor pieces.
As you can see, making the transition from winter to spring is not that difficult. But this process will require some careful planning and attention to details. Moreover, don’t try to rush the décor, but instead choose to introduce new details as time goes on. This way your design will always feel fresh and inspiring.
