When the weather starts getting warmer most of us put the coats in the closet, bring out brighter colours and shed the weight of winter. Unless you're packing up to head to the second house in a warmer climate, changing small sections in your home is the closest you get to bringing the spring season inside. Below, some of our Flickr Group members share how they chose to lighten up their decor along with their spirits.
Spring on a Plate
On the left, kimhas7cats starts in the kitchen. These bright pastel dishes are a fun start to any day. On the right, merfam extends his Louisville sunshine to these bowls -- some waffles served on a burnt orange plate could be the perfect accent to an early sun room or veranda breakfast spread.
Flowers and Vessels
Of course Sandy knows there is nothing easier and more effective than grouping some colorful vases together to house the essence of spring-fresh flowers (left). Or maybe it's back to the basics with just a clean white vase and a touch of fresh lavender like MandCo, on the right.
Bed Spring(s) :)
On the left, Niesz Vintage Fabric softened up the walls with butter yellow, crisp white furniture and vintage floral fabric that is tastefully carried over to the corner shelf. On its own, the bed might be complemented by emma_louise's handmade quilt (right) -- so sweet. The original tree design is surrounded by color and texture, the perfect show piece for a guest bedroom.
