As soon as the snow melts each spring I can’t wait to refresh my decor and add some cheerful and fresh spring items. Here are a few examples of how you can add a little spring to the inside of your home.
1. Floral branches. I rarely add faux florals to our home. When I do I always make sure I don’t cheap out and find one that has realistic branches and don’t go overboard on the flowers. They add a natural element without the upkeep and expense of real flowers.
2. A spring-themed vase. A vase with flower, butterfly or bird accents add a little springtime whimsy to an otherwise simple vase.3. Add anything bird themed. For a few years now bird accents have been very trendy and bring a little life to your decor. Check out your local home decor store’s garden section. You will often find a variety of spring-themed decor there.

When designing my kid’s rooms I am always trying to strike a balance between makings them fun and age appropriate yet being careful to not go overboard on a theme knowing that my kids may eventually want something different. Here are some quick and inexpensive ways you add a little extra whimsy to a little girl’s room:
Create a more dynamic composition with a small piece of artwork on a larger wall by scattering some unexpected butterflies and flowers. Don’t be afraid to mix in some pops of colour. I found these butterflies at the Dollar Store and these paper flowers at a local craft store.
I re-purposed one of my son’s old lamps by pulling off the masculine truck decals and replacing them with felt butterflies and flowers from the dollar store.
