This spring, we’re partnering with our favorite style bloggers to show us how they style this season’s hottest trends. From makeup tutorials to home décor tips, we’re excited to see how these fashionistas make trends all their own.
This week, we’re welcoming Jess from The Golden Girl to share her décor tips for spring. If you’re looking to refresh your living space on a budget, Jess shares some simple tips that make a huge difference.
It’s official–spring is here! Can you believe how fast time flies? While it feels like yesterday you were putting away all those holiday decorations, the flowers are now beginning to bloom and temperatures are (slowly but steadily) rising.
You’ve likely got your spring cleaning to-do list ready to go–you know, deep clean the baseboards, finally get around to dusting those blinds, clean out the closets–but what about your decor? While cycling out your decor each season might sound expensive, it can actually be much more affordable than you think!
The easiest place to start with a spring refresh is your living room. After all, this is where all the action happens, right? From movie nights to family gatherings, the living room is the heart of your home, so why not give it a little something extra this spring? With these easy tips, you can give it a quick and easy seasonal refresh for less than $100!
1. Add a pop of pattern with throw pillows
Looking to make a big impact for just a few bucks? Throw pillows will quickly become your best friend! I went with this patterned pair, which adds a powerful punch of personality to my otherwise neutral sofa. I also love the deep blue color, which gives the space a cool, fresh vibe that is perfect for the changing seasons.
2. Bring in the outdoors
One of the easiest ways to make your space feel new again is to bring in the outdoors. Meijer’s outdoor department has plenty of options to do just that–whether you’re looking to make a statement with a potted palm, or you prefer something smaller, like this mini succulent garden enclosed in a wooden vase–plants are an easy way to create visual interest–plus, they keep the air fresh, too! If plants aren’t your thing, something as simple as a vase of beautiful flowers (Meijer’s floral department has plenty to choose from!) will do the trick.
3. Mix up your decor
“Refreshing” your decor for warmer weather doesn’t necessarily mean everything has to be bright or “springy”–sometimes simply bringing a new style into your decor mix will give you a lot of bang for your buck! For example–is your space mostly traditional and contemporary? Throw in a couple vintage-inspired pieces, like this rustic milk jug and wire basket, to shake things up. Gone are the days of matching furniture and decor–mixing different styles will give your space a fresh, eclectic vibe!
4. Freshen up your space with a springy scent
When it comes to redecorating, we always think visually, but scent is a powerful part of the process, too! It can be the difference in your home feeling warm and cozy, or open and airy! So put away the pine tree, cinnamon, and warm vanilla scented candles, and go with something bright and punchy–like this Burt’s Bee’s grapefruit candle. If I could describe the scent of “spring” in a candle–it would definitely be this one. Meijer has hundreds of scent options to add the finishing touches to your new room.
