It’s finally here– the great thaw. It’s that time of year when you spot little patches of green grass sprouting up, you hear the birds chirping joyfully outside, and if you’re anything like me, it’s also the time of year when you start itching to jump in a pool of fresh flowers and soak in the sunshine. Since a spring flower bath may not be practical, why not bring all the freshness of spring indoors by switching up some of your decor? Need some ideas? Here are a few that will give you an immediate spring fix.
The easiest way to bring the outdoors in is with live plants and flowers. Breathe life into a sterile and sometimes cold room like a bathroom. Indoor planters not only look beautiful, they smell wonderful as well and add life into an otherwise dull space.
For a small planter, the MANDEL Plant Pot is a great option. Sit it in a windowsill and fill with flowers to brighten a room. If cooking with fresh herbs is your thing, use the SATSUMAS Plant Stand to create your own herb garden. Label each plant so you know what is what when it comes time to cook.
Another idea– try going vertical. Hanging planters can add instant interest to a corner. These handy BITTERGURKA Hanging Planters can be layered by hooking one to another.
If you love the look of botanicals, but want more than an indoor plant, botanical prints may be just the thing. Switch out your old duvet for the STRANDKRYPA or RODBINKA duvet covers. Your bedroom will feel springy with just one simple switch.
For a living room, toss a DORTHY Cushion Cover into the mix and get an instantly fresh feel. It doesn’t take much to bring the outdoors in, and the transformation will give you a mood boost. Take a deep breath and sigh– it’s spring!
