With the first warm breezes of spring and when the blue bonnets first make their appearance, the new season may inspire you to want to freshen up the rooms in your Weston Dean home. Use these decorating ideas to help you welcome in spring in your San Antonio custom home.
Make simple changes with big impact:
Rearrange seating away from the fireplace and toward the outdoor view from your Weston Dean home. Cover heavier upholstery with canvas slipcovers and toss on bright pillows. Cover a dark wood side table with lightweight layered fabric table skirts. Change out winter table accessories for light pieces, such as an open weave basket, white pottery and a turquoise vase.
Think about bringing nature in:
Gather things like spring branches, pebbles, shells, fresh fruits or spring flowers and create arrangements using containers made of wicker or in light spring colors.
Add easy accents:
A glass lamp can replace heavier solid lamps. Pressed leaves in a white frame can be used on an entryway table with a garden statue to greet your guests as they enter into your Weston Dean home. Use slipcovers for your dining chairs in fresh color or pattern fabric for spring.
Change the furniture:
Now’s the time to change out a dark wood bench or upholstered chair for a lighter, spring colored wicker one. Bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms will welcome the warm seasons when filled with wicker or other garden inspired furniture.
Set a new table:
Delight guests in your Weston Dean home with seasonal tabletop style. Plant wheatgrass and daisies in a natural centerpiece bowl and use woven placemats under tableware. Bird shape glass bud vases and nest with frosted glass eggs will say to your guests spring has arrived.
Don’t forget about the bedroom and bath:
Say goodbye to the flannel sheets and go for cool, silky, high thread count cottons. Change out winter comforters, bed skirts, duvets or pillow shams for others in light colored shimmering silks, sheers and embroidered floral. New white and bright color towels are an inexpensive way to add a pop of color to your bathrooms.
Spring is a time to renew and bring color back into your home. Use some of these ideas to help lighten up and reflect the color coming to life outside.
