The sun is out and spring flowers are starting to bloom! (Finally!) Bring some of those fresh springy design elements into your American Legend home with some accessories to spruce up what you already have. Here are five easy ways to welcome spring through your front door:
Greenery: Houseplants are hot as a trend for 2022. But which are the heartiest and trendiest? The Kentia palm gives off a beachy vibe and can grow large, making it a focal point for a room. The Kalanchoe Pinnata is eye-catching and low maintenance. Mistletoe cactus brings texture and drama to a room. And if you have a black thumb, try a tall snake plant (hard to kill even for novices!).
Bring the sunshine in: Yellow brings the “happiest of vibes” home, says this Real Homes article. Incorporate it with a set of yellow dishes, a yellow Le Creuset stoneware canister for the countertop, a yellow throw of the back of a chair or a yellow vase for some spring blooms. And hint: it can be any shade of yellow!
Vertical garden: If you are looking for a fun spring decorating project with the kids, create a vertical garden. Get a wooden pallet, some clay pots and potted herbs from your local DIY store and nursery, prop it against an outdoor wall or fence, and decorate it with the pots. Get the visual here.
Floral, floral, floral: We all know that fresh flowers make a stunning tablescape. Look at them paired with a vibrant floral tablecloth here. Stunning!
More floral: Incorporate even more spring flowers in your décor with this watercolor wildflower dish towel, anfloral embroidered table runner, this strawberry fields cluster embroidered pillow or these blue & white floral sheets (from Target!).
While there is nothing wrong with cuddling under the covers with a cup of hot chocolate, there is something refreshing about welcoming spring temps and fresh air into your home. And incorporating simple design elements can be easy and inexpensive. American Legend says, “Welcome, springtime! We’re glad you’re here!”
