Living in the Northeast, it sometimes feels like spring will never come. Cold, gray days leave us all longing for some much needed sunshine and vitamin D. Unfortunately, we can’t change the weather outside, but your apartment doesn’t have to remain devoid of warmth and color, too! Try some of these spring inspired decorating ideas to refresh your apartment in Albany NY and help brighten your mood.
Brighten your Apartment in Albany with a Spring Makeover
Nothing says spring like fresh-cut flowers, but try thinking outside the vase. Replace wall art with springtime paintings or photos, maybe a meadow filled with wild flowers, and look for placemats or napkins with a floral motif. Add scented candles to give your apartment a fresh spring scent.
A new bedding set can drastically change the vibe of a bedroom. Exchange your heavy winter comforter for crisp, bright linens. Choose sheets in soft pastels or even white to keep things serene and clean, and add color or pattern with a duvet cover, blanket and pillow shams.
Add a splash of spring hues to your living room with a few throw pillows. Rather than all solid pastels, try mixing in floral patterns and designs with birds or butterflies. Paired with a summer-weight throw blanket, pillows can easily, and inexpensively, transition your sofa from winter to spring.
Wake up your kitchen and bath with brightly colored area rugs. A new rug with matching dish towels will add a refreshing pop of color by the kitchen sink, while a new bath mat and plush towels will do the same for your bath.
