Springtime… breathe it in. Even if it’s still cold where you are here are six easy ways to refresh your home (updated for Spring in 2023).
When thinking about refreshing your home, start with a good spring cleaning of the rooms, some decluttering, and new eyes on what may be looking a little “tired.” In my case, I wanted to add a bit more texture.
We have some respected bloggers to join us with their Spring Refresh recommendations, too. Their links are at the end of the post.
You can see how we created a statement wall with a gallery wall.

Mix Up Your Pillow Covers
I already had all of these throw pillows (one is even 10 years old). The new thing I did here was changing the color combo to all rust, peach, and pops of apricot. Look at what you have and consider bringing some in from another room for a fresh feel.
Or it might be time to buy new ones. This updated post may be helpful: Freshen Up with PILLOWS! My Favorite Sources.
Sometimes just pairing back accessories in your living room can give you a new look. I cleaned off our coffee table and added the tray (on sale at Serena and Lily). In fact, everything is 20% off right now.
A New Bed For Your Pooch
“It takes days of labor for a weaver to make only one basket. So, all of our handmade dog bed baskets are completely unique works of art”.
Bring In Some Branches (and Flowers, of course)
No new decor here except a client gave me those branches from her garden. I just moved the artwork in here from another room.

Those tulips are from Trader Joe’s. Aren’t the colors perfect? When I had blue pillows in here, I used blue hydrangea or really whatever caught my fancy at the grocery store. I also use a plant on the coffee table instead of fresh flowers sometimes.
Are you planning any Spring changes?
