Redecorating Ideas to Brighten Your Home or Office for Spring

March 22, 2013

There is a remarkable beauty about spring that generally gives people a sense of renewal and positivity. It’s the season of life, when flowers begin to blossom, when the grass is greenest, and when birds come out to sing. To make your surroundings match the beauty of spring and exude the energy of the season, redecorate your house, apartment, or office with some colorful accents and floral designs. We’ve found some fun ideas that are simple and effective. Take a gander below and tell us what you think!

Start by awakening your senses with splashes of color in unexpected places around you. Some of the easiest and most effortless measures you can take are: adding bright patterned pillows to your couches and chairs, throwing down colorful rugs in otherwise bland areas, or mixing new vibrant pieces of furniture with your existing setup.

Bold Graphic Pillows

Pillows are a quick and inexpensive way to rejuvenate any room. Pick designs with rich and bright colors to create a look of variation.

Rich, Eye-Catching Rugs

Instead of having to paint a wall, you can introduce a nice pop of color just about anywhere with a rug. Choose a vibrant design, or pick more neutral subdued colors featuring a bold graphic if you prefer a more subtle look.
