Take Ikea for example. They’re literally everywhere, and they provide affordable and effective ways to brighten up your space. So start to embrace the spring with these spring decorating ideas!

Decorating For Spring With Ikea

1. Bring In The Great Outdoors!

Ikea has a wide variety of vases and pots to make this style transition happen. Plants and Flowers add a finished dimension and pop that any Spring space could use. Even using an old fashioned watering can with fresh flowers can add a vintage, whimsical aspect to your spring decor.

2. Color From The Ground Up

A bright, lively rug can do wonders to any space! A colorful rug or a rug with a bold pattern makes a statement and can be just one simple element you need to refresh your space for Spring. Ikea gives you many options for affordable rugs that will add a pop to your design.

3. Accessorize With Floral Patterns

Decorative bowls, curtains and framed prints are just some of Ikea’s accessories that make it easy to bring florals into your home! Fill the Stockholm Bowl with fruit, glass orbs or a number of objects to add color and tie together different aspects of your space. 

4. Beautify With Brilliant & Bold Pillows

Not too keen on spending a ton of money on a season that lasts just a few months? Adding decorative pillows to an existing chair or couch is a simple way to give your room a new feel. A bright color, an interesting pattern or even a nature print are just some of the pillows Ikea offers that are perfect for Spring decorating ideas. This array of bright, printed pillows demonstrates how you can easily mix and match a variety of patterns while still achieving a cohesive look. If you’re having trouble finding just the right pillow to accessorize with, there’s a Havenly designer ready and waiting to help.

5. Keep Your Large Pieces Neutral And Soft

Ikea has a number of slipcovered sofas and pastel colored chairs to keep your space from being overwhelmingly colourful. Slipcovered pieces are light and airy, and they give you an option of replacing the cover when necessary. A lot of spring accents will be used for only a short period of time, making it necessary for them to be easily removable and replaceable when another season rolls in. The Ikea-designed space above is a good example of neutral pieces where bright, bold patterns can easily be added to make a statement. Keeping your larger furniture pieces neutral will be the most affordable and easy way to do this in the long run.

Don’t let the changing seasons overwhelm your style reasoning! Ikea makes it easy and affordable to roll with the changes. With their wide offering of furniture, decor and accessories, Ikea offers everything you need to feel good in your Springtime home.
