How do you feel when spring arrives? I know I feel a-m-a-z-i-n-g. I just love the springtime! Each year as spring arrives I begin to feel a sense of new beginnings – a time to hit the reset button on my life, and get out with the old and negative, and in with the new and positive. I feel more motivated at this time of year, and with a renewed energy to take on the world!
One way I welcome this lovely season is to bring it into my home. Bringing the springtime sense of new beginnings, and positivity, into my living space, also helps put me in a better mood, and raise my spirits, which is all beneficial to my mental health.
If you’re a fellow lover of this season and looking to bring it into your space, I’ve put together a few simple (and affordable) ways to bring spring into your home. Let’s jump right in!

6 Simple Ways To Bring Spring Into Your Home:
# 1 – Flowers
One of the best parts about spring is the gorgeous flowers! A simple and beautiful way to add a touch of spring to your home is to purchase some fresh, inexpensive supermarket spring flowers and to add one or more simple arrangements throughout the house.
Of course, if you’re lucky enough to have your very own garden to pick these from, you can cut the cost completely! The fresh flowers will add a beautiful punch of spring colour to your home, and also bring with them a lovely natural floral scent.
# 2 – Candles
Adding spring-scented candles to the house is another way to add a touch of the season to your beautiful abode. There are a variety of spring scents out there and candles at different price ranges. You are bound to find the perfect scent for you.
Bonus: spring candles will also usually come in beautiful soft pastel colours, making them perfect accents of colour throughout your home.
# 3 – Pillows
Another great way to bring in the spring season is to swap your old pillows throughout the house for ones that are beautifully spring-coloured and themed.
Purchasing different pillows for each season can become costly, so I’ve got a tip for you: Purchase one set of pillow covers per season, but only purchase one set of pillow inserts for the entire year. Using the same pillow inserts and just changing up the pillow covers offers a brand new look for half the price and half the effort!
Bottom Line: Invest in lovely spring colour pillow covers and quickly transform your living space into the perfect springtime oasis.
# 4 – Blankets and throws
A super easy way to add a spring touch to your home is to invest in a few spring coloured blankets and throws. Place these beautiful blankets/throws on your sofa and bed and notice as the overall look of the room completely brightens and freshens up. An effortless Spring-ifying technique!
# 5 – White/light coloured duvets
A sure-fire way of spring-ifying your bedrooms is to choose a white (or another light colour) duvet. Using a light colour will instantly make your room feel brighter, fresher and very much in line with the lightness of the spring season.
# 6 – Declutter, Declutter, and Yes, Declutter!
We have all heard of spring cleaning, right? A time of organizing our spaces and getting rid of the old and unused. Decluttering your space has many benefits (both physical and mental) and of course should be done throughout the entire year. However, since spring is a time of new beginnings and rebirth, there is no better way of inviting the spring season into your home then taking the time to refresh and rejuvenate your living space.
Start the season off in your clean, bright and clutter-free, home sweet home!
If you want to add sweet spring touches to your home, try adding flowers, spring-scented candles, spring-themed pillows, light-coloured blankets and duvets, and don’t forget to declutter. Wishing you tons of joy this beautiful season. Happy spring, my friends! Thanks so much for stopping by <3
