Spring Preening: Refresh Your Space!

Spring cleaning–who needs it? By pairing organic elements with vivid, statement-making decor pieces, you can successfully spruce up your place without lifting a finger or a dust brush! These inspirational spaces offer plenty of ideas on how to revamp a room without ditching all your duds.

Love kitsch? So do we! Mix and match floral prints with funky modern designs to create contrast and add character to your space. We recommend inviting interest to an empty corner table by placing the Coral Reef Regal Jewelry Stand (1) and Bark Life Picture Frame (2) next to one another to transform an overlooked area in a wink. Either dress the jewelry stand with your most enchanting necklaces for pizazz or leave it bare for a simply stunning focal point next to the frame.

Re-polish your place with earthy elegance by dressing up bare walls with mess-free temporary wall paper in organic prints. This stuff is super easy to apply with the help of a friend, and it lasts only as long as you want it to–no drop cloths required! The Sprig to Mind Temporary Wallpaper in Teal (3) is a great option for accent walls and bare spaces. Swap a few items with clever, animal accents made of modern materials to make it feel like you’re just another creature among adorable indoor pets. Try the Let There Be Flight Hanging Lamp (4) or the Nocturn-owl Lifestyle Lamp (5).

Whip out your knitting needles and get to crafting! Dress up bare lampshades or withering pillows with crocheted creations to dub boring items you already own with one-of-a-kind character. If knitting isn’t your forté, brighten your space by assembling little pet plants. Get adventurous decorating their pots with simple, découpage techniques or line their rims using tacky glue and colorful knit scraps. A few of them would look lovely atop the On the Grid Shelf (6) near a sunlit window in your bedroom or living area. Check out our DIY Inspiration blog post on glass jar crafts for more ideas!

    Yeah, I’m really starting to think I’d love to have a forest wall and pretend I’m on the Moon of Endor with the Ewoks.

    I’m totally digging the granny square lamp shade cover. That would be easy to make!
