Spring Decor for the Home

April 2, 2013 / Design Tips

GreenBox Art + Culture seeks out artwork for our line that brings a smile to your face.

We love color and vibrance that leaps off the canvas and really warms up your walls. For springtime, we recommend a dose of color and whimsy, no matter your age or style. By bringing spring decor for the home into unexpected places, it not only livens up your living space, but it will brighten your outlook and refresh your surroundings. Selecting original artwork from artists around the world enables us to accumulate various styles to fit many types of homes. Our line’s definitely got gorgeous options in both neutral and colorful palettes which can brighten up a room in their own way, so if you’re seeking home decor to express how spring makes you feel and add dynamic whimsy to your atmosphere, here are some of our top decor picks along with colorful GreenBox artwork for the home.

Colorful

Whimsy and color don’t necessarily mean “childish” and “immature”. We see whimsy wherever an accent makes us smile and feel inspired. For those of us that enjoy a healthier dose of color in spring decor for the home, choose show-stopping accents that are impossible to ignore and will have your room bursting with happy hues. Caroline Blum’s artwork Spring Blossoms is a gorgeous canvas that will have spring leaping off your wall. In a size 30×4, it makes a perfect centerpiece for your wall over a beige sofa or between windows draped in white. Bringing in a vibrant rug like this Betty Rug in Honey from Design Within Reach, adds a subtle splash of color. By keeping this bold accent relegated to the floor, the color doesn’t overtake the room.

Accent tables can be a great place to experiment with color, and offer the option of a simple DIY painting when the mood strikes. This contemporary Drum Stool/Table/Ottoman by Bend Seating is as eye-catching as it is versatile. Available in white, orange, or peacock blue, these options offer a safe and clever way to add color punch to your neutral decor. Brighten up a neutral sofa with a Kantha Throw from Ebay, then use it in your guest room once your living room color choices shift. Lastly, flowers are a perfect way to bring a feeling of spring indoors. Opt for wall art featuring ranunculus and peonies with Paula Prass’s Ball Jar Series for a garden that requires no upkeep, but provides lasting and colorful beauty.

Neutral

For a more subtle approach to bringing spring indoors, whites, pastels, and metallics take center stage. Our neutral picks for spring decor for the home contain some unexpected accents that will have your guests taking a second look, and are sure to bring a smile. These Platinum Etched Wine Glasses from Jayson Home are destined to be a family favorite and passed down as classic heirlooms. Display these in a glass front cabinet or atop a buffet when not in use for functional and timeless decor. Mudpies and Other Recipes from Anthropologie is a delightful book that will be loved by everyone who takes a peek. Your coffee table shouldn’t be ignored when perking up your place, so add this colorful conversation starter to bring common ground to a group of kids and adults, and excite the little ones for all the fun that spring brings.

The Ikea PS Jonsberg Vase looks fabulous alone on an entry table or amongst books on your shelf, with one tall white gladiola or a bunch of blossoming branches from your favorite tree. It would also look nice as the centerpiece for your tabletop decor alongside World Market’s Porcelain Cotton Crochet Placemat set in this fresh, spring shade. Keep these punches of pastel on the more mature side with plenty of fresh whites, neutrals, and natural wood. Our 5 Dancing Fawns artwork by Eli Halpin maintains a simple, yet contemporary color palette that will accentuate your decor throughout the year, and especially bring to mind the new life brought by spring. The Eartha Linen Throw Pillow from Tulu provides a flowery pink touch without going overboard. Add it to your sofa or armchair for a charming detail that won’t steal the show.

Whites or brights, we think it’s time to freshen your surroundings with springtime decor. The smallest touches will renew your view and make you smile, and there’s no denying that big and bold can’t help but let the sunshine in. Our favorite tip? Bring in one, huge, favorite piece and create the Spring Equinox right in your living room: Magnolia Pod by Andrew Daniel in sizes up to 60×45. It’s time to open those windows and let the fresh air renew your spirit!
