We’re all keen to welcome spring and that includes bringing it into our living spaces. Why not start in the bedroom? There are lots of creative, inexpensive ways to lighten and brighten this room, and once the warmer weather hits, you’ll be so glad you did. Get a jumpstart on your spring cleaning by starting with the room where every day begins! Here are our top suggestions for how to refresh your bedroom.
Lighten Up Your Bedding
Time to wash and put away the heavy, wintry comforters, flannel sheets, and plush blankets for a couple of seasons. Switch to lighter, more breathable fabrics that are more in keeping with the rising temperatures outside. Because there are still many cool days and nights ahead, layering your bed linens this time of year is smart. Include a woven blanket or multiple sheets so you can easily adjust the level of warmth needed as you sleep. Always keep a cosy throw or two on hand; they are all-season comforts.
Introduce Some Softer Colours
Now is the perfect time to soften the overall colour palette in your bedroom a little, either by introducing some pastels, mixing and matching soothing neutrals, or using brighter, more vibrant tones if that’s more your style. You can do this easily and inexpensively through a few well-chosen accessories or accent pieces. Pillows, throw blankets, artwork, picture frames, books, candles, and flowers are all great options; you likely already have a few items on hand so you can begin decorating right away.
Add Some Greenery
Why not bring some of the vibrance that’s starting to happen outside our doors inside? Adding touches of greenery to your bedroom, in the form of fresh, potted, faux, or dried flowers instantly brings some life to the space. Plant life is ideal for introducing colour and texture, as well as being a reliable mood-brightener.
Add A Colourful Rug
Nothing lifts the spirits quite like colour, especially in spring. The addition of a rug that’s soft underfoot, whether patterned or solid, will add a layer of cosiness to your bedroom and a big hit of style. A colourful, bohemian accent rug is right on trend; go large if you’ve got the floorspace to fill, pick a runner if you’ve got a longer, narrower space, or choose a smaller one for the foot of your bed if that would work best.
Floral Or Botanical Wallpaper
Wallpaper is no longer the lifetime commitment it once was. If you’re longing to add some drama to your walls, peel-and-stick wall coverings are for you. There’s no need to do an entire room either—simply pick the one wall you’d like to feature and find a pattern that speaks to you. Botanicals are hot right now and you can find them in every scale, from massively oversized to fine and intricate. Florals can be colour-saturated and bold or done tonally in more subdued neutrals. Whatever you choose, have some fun!
We hope these suggestions for how to refresh your bedroom for spring have inspired you. Get started by assessing what you already have and thinking about the pieces you could add to complete the look. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to follow the Medallion blog for more home decor tips.
