Happy Spring everyone!
We are uber excited for Spring to arrive and we know we're not the only ones who are ready for it!
The days are already getting lighter and there is something so positive about coming home and it still being light.
So this past weekend, we packed away the winter neturals and are embracing color in all forms.
To celebrate, we're sharing 10 lovely ways you can bring spring into your home ( even if the ground hasn't thawed yet ;)
1. Update your artwork
Change out your artwork with colorful pieces to match your interior and don't forget, artwork doesn't just go on walls.
Create a collection like this one shown, place on your mantle, entryway table or book shelf.You can also up-cycle an old frame, pick out a bold color or consider this seasons must have metal ; gold.

2. Add Flowers
Adding flowers brings color & life back into your space, whether you love daffodils, tulips or stems of blossoms.
Glass & porcelain vases are beautiful but there are also a wide range of other display options like this one from Pottery Barn.
A simple hand blown vase attached with an antique nail allows you to showcase your florals in unexpected areas.

3. Makeover your tabletop

4. Freshen up your bedroom
Whatever your style, freshen up your space.
Studies have shown that when we change our environment, our mood is lifted and we feeling positive effects that life is improving.
We're loving this floral print in a single hue layered with colorful sheets and pillows makes for an easy seasonal update.
Change out lamps, add throw cushions and your space is easily and affordably changed, no painting needed!

5. Add Wallpaper
Why not choose a focal wall and add wallpaper? With so many beautiful papers to choose from you can have a whole new look in less than a few hours.
Many wallpaper are also pre-pasted which means they're easier to hang, perfect for beginners!
We showcase a lot of papers from York ( like this one here) but whatever you choose it will make your space appear fresh and new.

6. Add mirrors
Break up your walls and create a mirror collage, like these ones from West Elm. For less than $100 you get three modern shapes and you can even mix and match with exisiting artwork.
Place over a foyer table, dining room sideboard or even your dressing table and bring in lots of light to an otherwise dark area of a room.
Take a stack of books and add plants, vases or flowers on top, creating an interesting display that pleases the eye.

7. Cushions & Throws
Change out your throw cushions and add a burst of color & pattern to your sofa. Don't forget your accent chairs and daybeds - simple swops will make it look like spring touched every room!
Mix and match styles - play around with different shapes, sizes and color families - they don't all have to match to look pretty.
We're loving this collection from Pottery Barn and at under $40 they're affordable too!
8. Update your entryway
Welcome guests with a beautiful wreath on your front door. Nothing screams S P R I N G more than a beautiful bunch of tulips!
In a variety of colors and sizes you're sure find something that will easily compliment your style

9. Add spring smells
Add that "Spring smell" - choose a spring inspired fragrance or light your favorite candle.
Personally, we love all things coconut - and though some may think its summery, it smells fresh and happy to us!
We love these Vegan handmade candles from The Tiny Collection - find them on Etsy

10. Add bunnies!
With Easter just around the corner, nothing says " Spring is here" better than bunnies!
Create your Easter table top or mantle display, Ivy bunnies, ceramic bunnies, fresh flowers, candles & eggs bring just enough of the outside in!
Don't stop there consider a small arrangement by your front door and give guests a taste of whats to come.
