Add a Spring Theme to Your Home
Give your home a floral fresh look with a springtime theme! Soft pastel colors, flowers and wildlife are perfect for adding a subtle flare. Hang a birdhouse outside your doorstep or arrange a bed of spring flowers along your windowsill like lilies, daffodils, or tulips. Wallpaper or a coat of baby blue paint will bring a room to life. Make it simple by switching your room decor from winter comforters to light, fine bed sheets and matching curtains.When redecorating your home, it’s likely that you’ll have to put certain decorative items to the side to make room for season-appropriate decor.
