Looking for fresh ideas to decorate your home for spring after Easter? Here are easy-to-do ideas that will elevate your space in fresh and inspiring ways
How do we decorate for Spring after Easter? Do we put all our spring decorations away and wait for Summer? Do we keep our Easter-inspired decor up it’s time to decorate for summer? Knowing what decor looks fresh in our homes when the Easter bunny has come and gone and when Memorial Day Weekend seems too far off is the key to decorating this time of year. Here are some ideas to decorate our homes now that Easter is over and we have lots of pretty spring days ahead of us! Embrace spring, my friend!
I’ve been getting lots of emails from StoneGable readers asking this question. It’s hard to know exactly how to decorate our homes for spring without them looking too Eastery!
Put Away All Bunnies, Chicks, Nests, And Other Easter Decor
I know this might be hard for some of you! If it looks like an Easter decoration, you might think of putting it away until next year.
At the end of a holiday or season always look ahead to the next season and use transitional decor that can go from one season to the next. So begin to decorate with an eye to summer! This makes decorating easy!
Use your own good discretion! You will know what spring decorations to put away and what to keep out.
At the end of a holiday or season always look ahead to the next season and use transitional decor that can go from one season to the next. Now is the time to begin to decorate with an eye to summer!
Here are some things I put away right after Easter…
And here are spring-inspired things I leave up for a while…
Decorate With Spring Inspired Pillows
Put all pillows that remind you of Easter away. If a pillow has any overtly Easter motif on them it’s time to retire them until next Easter.
The pillows I put on the spindle chairs will work all the way through summer! Now is the time to celebrate late spring and early summer with pillows that have a fresh seasonal feel! If you like a pillow without a pattern choose cotton, linen, or even a woven fabric that is visually lighter.
Don’t forget pillows in the bedroom, as well as bedding, need to be lightened up too! The bedding in our master bedroom will work the rest of spring and summer.
The power of pillows should never be overlooked when decorating for any season!
Create A Lightened-Up Feel
Lighten up is the buzzword for this time of year!
Oh, I love to lighten up decor as the weather warms. Think about adding lighter color accents and lighter-feeling accessories. The weather is getting warmer so now is the time to use natural materials and textures.
Think linens and burlap and pretty white things! Add items to your home with less visual weight!
Add a simple jute table runner to your dining room table. If you have an accent rug, think about changing it out for a sisal or jute rug. These types of rugs are inexpensive and scream warmer weather! And they look so pretty with the spring decor you have out now!
And don’t forget paint!
Paint heavy furniture or picture frames or shelves and more! Use the magic of your paintbrush to lighten up the things you love!
Twigs, Blooms, And Spring Branches
I have a not-so-rare condition known to be rampant among interior decorators. It’s called stick-and-twig-itis!
I love love love sticks and twigs and brambles and anything organic! I’m crazy about them and find every opportunity to decorate with them. Sometimes I use real blooming branches but mostly great eye-fooling faux. Spring is a time to go a little bit overboard with them!
While you are putting your Easter decorations away don’t put away your faux blooms and brambles! Keep using them. They will look pretty in your home until mid-May!
Use Tulips Year Round
Did you know that tulips were worth a king’s ransom at one time? They have been prized for their beauty for centuries! And we should not just use them with our spring decor. Thankfully we can get tulips at most grocery stores year round.
Grab a bunch from the grocers and add them to your decor!
I can’t resist tulips. They may be the quintessential spring flower, but they are beautiful all year!
SHOP YOUR HOME
Every new season you should shop your home and change your decor around. Even if it is just a little bit. Doing this exercise on a regular basis will add new life to your home and spice things up a bit.
Swap accent chairs from room to room. Create a new vignette with the decor you stashed in your basements, garage, under the bed, in the back of the closet, etc! Your home will feel so fresh!
There you go, StoneGable readers! I hope I have answered your question! There are lots of options when it comes to decorating for spring even after Easter!
