Even though the sun is now finally out, this doesn’t mean you can’t brighten things up a little more with smart lighting ideas.

“Take inventory of where your spaces have dark zones and consider adding a table lamp, floor lamp, sconce or even updating a center light fixture,” explains Eryn Oruncak, interior designer and founder of Elan Design.

Eryn Oruncak is the founder, fine artist, and interior designer of Elan Design. She's known for her presentation of fine art paintings, refined details, and evocative spaces. 

She says a good rule of thumb is having three sources of light in a space. “It's important to bring the benefits of sunlight inside, too.”

Add a spring home decor touch with this Madelyn Capiz Faceted Sconce from Anthropologie, which has a lovely petal pattern and comes in a pearly white, and soft blush pink.

2. Add sweet pastel shades

We’re officially shrugging off wintery shades and bringing in all things sweet and sugary.

“Spring is all about vibrant colors and pastels are perfect for this season,” says Ricky Allen, interior designer and director of Ever Wallpaper.

Ricky Allen is the interior designer and director of Ever Wallpaper, experts in high-quality wallpapers and murals, using non-toxic, odorless, and environmentally friendly materials. As the director of a wallpaper brand, he's always on top of the latest seasonal colors and aesthetics.

You can do this with small space color trends, or Ricky suggests creating an accent wall with light pink or mint green wallpaper (this August Grove Amaranthine Striped Roll from Wayfair comes in both colors) to get this look for the season without having to completely renovate your home.

3. Use flowers and plants

If you’ve been on a lovely spring walk and want to bring all the scenery in, you can do so by choosing natural elements as spring home decor ideas.

Ricky explains, “As the flowers start to bloom outside, bring some nature indoors by incorporating plants and fresh flowers into your decor.”

We recommend going for one of the best indoor plants that grows flowers so you don’t have to throw anything away, such as this Costa Farms Bird of Paradise Plant from Walmart.

4. Refresh the fabrics

Many rooms need a good edit to lighten and brighten the accumulation of the winter months, which can be done with pretty fabrics.

Eryn explains, “One of the easiest ways to welcome spring into the home is to refresh the fabrics around the home. Freshening up throw pillows on beds and couches, and switching out blankets will make a huge difference in those spaces.”

To take your spring home decor ideas one step further, you could also go for one of the best bedding sets in a flowery pattern, such as this bright Floral Bedding Bundle from Anthropologie

5. Choose organic materials

If you’re looking at your furniture and think it could use a spring refresh, going for lighter colored furniture is the way to go.

Ricky says, “I like to add natural materials like wicker or rattan furniture to create a more organic feel.” 

Looking for a rattan piece you can use all year? We’re into this Bayou Breeze Okkra Drawer from Wayfair, which is giving us all the boho vibes.

6. Make a flower wreath

Fabric flower wreaths are easy to make and look stunning. They can be made using any type of fabric, such as cotton, linen, or silk.

Choose from real flowers or even go for fabric flowers for a wreath you can reuse year after year.

For those who don’t want to go all-out for the season but still want to celebrate it, you can do so by choosing sweet accent pieces.

These small touches will add a touch of spring home decor to any room and can be swapped out for other seasonal pieces throughout the year.


As well as adding spring home decor ideas into your home, one of the best ways to zhuzh up your space is by going for a spring clean.

Eryn finishes by saying, “This is the best place to start in terms of welcoming the season into the home. The feeling of a fresh and clean space gives an unmistakable sense of relaxation and comfort."
