The nice weather has finally arrived and we would like to bring it … inside our home! The spring decoration at Strøm was inspired by suggestions made by Audrey from AKB design. Here are some tips on how to decorate your home and give it a fresh new spring look!
- Select seasonal flowers
There is nothing like flowers to beautify our home! In early spring, opt for seasonal flowers and branches like ferns, willow branches (pussy willow), budding branches, branches of apple trees, magnolias, forsythias, tulips, lilacs … Often, these branches and flowers can be found in our own backyard! Also, a bouquet full of greeneries will always give your home a little boost of freshness!
- Make simple compositions
Choose clear glass vases, a Mason jar, an old metal bucket or a woven basket to arrange your flowers and branches.
- Change the pillows and linens
It’s time to store our winter throws and pillows made of wool and felt! Choose cushions and fabrics made of lighter and natural materials such as linen and cotton. Pick them in light or pastel colors or multicolored. Floral prints are always great in spring, as are bird prints!
- Decorate your kitchen with a big bowl of fresh fruit
A big bowl of fresh fruit will always give an instant effect of freshness to any kitchen!
- Change the rug in your entrance
Change the rug in your entrance for a model made of sisal or for one with a more summery striped pattern.
- Choose sheer and lighter curtains
Swap heavy and dark curtains for sheer and lighter ones.
- Use rocks, driftwood, corals and shells to decorate your home.
Instead of wintery fir branches, start using rocks, driftwood, corals and shells to decorate your home.
Have a great time decorating!
