Spring Decor Ideas
Simple but beautiful DIY projects for your home
With the spring nearly here I made this Sunday about spring and gathered some inspiring decor ideas for you! This year the winter hasn’t been too bad and it seems to have flown by in a blink of an eye. However, I do feel the impact of low energy coming with lack of light and the grey skies. To elevate my mood and bring some spring magic to our home, I found a few lovely elements to decorate our apartment with. Let’s have a look at some really affordable, fun and fresh spring DIY decor ideas!
How can you decorate your living room in spring? Let’s talk plants!
Have you heard about the hydroponic gardening yet? When I first learned about it I was completely enchanted. Plants, often just fallen off leaves or even seeds half dipped in the water growing in glass jars. There is something profoundly beautiful about the exposure the glass and water give. You can see the plant growing from the roots to the leaves. Recently, one of my Calathea plants dropped a leaf. Actually, it’s more probable our cat MADE IT fall off but anyway! Moving on lol
I found the leaf on the floor and I didn’t want to waste it and throw it away. I had a small karafa vase in the kitchen so I popped it in with a bit of water. Sometimes, I collect similar leaves outside and bring them home to paint. Botanical motifs inspire most of my repeat patterns so I’m always in search for beautiful references. And what happened?
Best plants for no-soil indoor gardening
I forgot about the leaf till about two weeks later. Assuming it would most probably be gone I went to throw it away. To my surprise it already grew long roots and was actually thriving! It didn’t take long and it even began to grow new leaves. And voila – new plant was born, no potting soil needed! It was ready for beautiful display just the way it was. Hydroponically grown plants offer fresh touch of nature and stylish look to any interior. They are also practical because plants growing in the nutrient-rich water can last easier if you need to travel! Let’s have a look at some of the options out there you can try if you’s like to decorate your home for spring!
- Fiddle Leaf Fig
- Chlorophytum comosum
Herbs and edible plants:
- Avocado (read more about How to grow an avocado from the seed here)
You can also grow your own microgreens or sprouts on a piece of moist cotton or in potting mix at home. They grow fast, bring a touch of spring green to your kitchen and they are also kids and pet friendly! When growing any plants at home with children, dogs, cats, rabbits running around, do make sure you choose non-toxic plants!
Spring on the living room coffee table
Fresh flowers, candles, tiny succulents and artisan handmade tile coasters sitting in a wooden frame. I remember winning these in an auction of vintage pieces some years ago and I have been admiring them since. They make the centre of the living room look chic and cozy at minimal cost!
Painted tiles are great DIY project too. You may have some spare tiles left after a home decoration. Or you may decide to buy a few and make your own table coasters. Tiles are easily painted with paints for ceramics and even glass, depending on the tile finish. You can also use stensils or stamps to create your designs, all the supplies are available at most craft shops!
Beautifully simple addition to your bathroom – Hanging Drying Rack by George & Willy
Moving from the living room to the bathroom – look at this beautiful rustic style drying rack by George & Willy! Wood and elements of nature never grow old. This gorgeous drying rack not only looks amazing but it also saves space to help with the spring organization. It also makes you wonder about all the use alternatives – can you image this rack above the bath with all kinds of indoor plants hanging off of it, levitating in the space? It would also make a great textile art or sewing patterns organizer. High quality hanging drying racks are never in the way, they are easily mounted even in small spaces and literally look like a designed piece of art!
3… 2… 1… Refresh!
Bringing spring into your home is not just about the physical aesthetic but also fresh air! As part of the decorating project I got some beautifully scented soaps and candles. They are very affordable and make a beautiful decoration while making your home feel like spring fields! Some time ago I also made an easy botanical DIY air freshner. Check it out it’s fun to try and makes a lovely handmade gift as well!
NOTE: Plants are also a unique way to refresh and clean the air! There are a few indoor plant types which are used specifically to help reduce dangerous particles we breathe. You can try for example Areca palm, Phoenix roebelenii or Chlorophytum comosum.
