5 Ways to Bring Spring Into Your Home Early

Gabrielle Blair Style Savvy

I don't know about you, but I am starting to get some serious spring fever. We may have several weeks of winter left, but that hasn't stopped me from scouting out ways to welcome the sunshine. Here are five easy things you can do to encourage an early spring at your house.

Spring fever tip #1: Now is a lovely time to force some flowering bulbs like pristine paperwhites. These flowers bloom quickly and will last long enough to give you that extra boost until things start blossoming again outside. Buy a kit, or try this tutorial.

Spring fever tip #2: Add some life to your walls without painting. Hang a come-hither-spring print like this one from Katie Daisy

Spring fever tip #3: Switch out your duvet for something a bit lighter and brighter like the one pictured here, designed by Dwell Studio. I have a few different duvet covers I rotate for this very purpose.

Spring fever tip #4: Accent pillows are the home decor world's easiest transformation tool. Throw brightly patterned pillows onto your sofa or chairs and you will be amazed at how different your space looks in an instant. I like these hand-block-printed options from West Elm.

Spring fever tip #5: Add something fresh or colorful wherever you can. Lay down a new table runner, buy a happy little tea kettle, maybe treat yourself to some gorgeous new dishtowels.  

Tell me. What are other easy things you do to "spring up" your space?
