Home: Ideas to Transition Your Home for Spring

Hello loves, Happy Thursday. The weekend is fast approaching.  If we would have done something exhausting over Spring break last week, I don't think by now would have even been enough time to recover. My has this week flown by. Not to mention, it's been a busy little week too. 
I was inspired by Arhaus  to do a blog post about any room in my  home, and how I bring Spring into that room. I already had on the blog schedule to do something around the house in relation to the new season. Originally, I was going to do my dining room table. I still have every intentions on doing that room, but it will be more towards Easter. I haven't found the exact plate setting yet and want to take some more time to find something. So, this lead to me Spring-ifying (I know that's not a word, work with me here, it's early for me and i'm still on my first cup of jo) my master bedroom. I already had two neutral, light tan/beige, lampshades and I had already been wanting to make new throw pillow covers. I found fabric for less than $10 at Hobby Lobby, and picked up some fresh flowers for next weeks Budget Blooms for, right at, $10. And voila, Mike and I have what feels like a new bedroom for the new Spring season. 
Changing little things like throw pillows and lighting are a cheap (especially if you make your own throw pillow covers) and easy solution for the bedroom blues. If you want to spend a little more money, rugs can often times be helpful to replace. Some advice, from experience...don't mention to your husband that concept. They don't need to know that what you buy for the bedroom is seasonal. If you can make a couple dramatic changes for under $20, why should they need to know...right? 
Some more thrifty ideas, use what you already have. For example, I have totes and totes and totes of home decor pieces that I've had since my first apartment 10 years ago. You can even find something you have in your living room. Chalk paint or spray paint it, to make it match. Sometimes bringing in things that are new to that particular room can make a difference, and make a room feel updated or new. 
Fresh flower bouquets are a super easy solution. I personally feel that if your going to keep fresh flowers on your night stand, hardly anything else should be on the nightstand with it. So, clear off your nightstand and add a vase full of Spring blooms. 
When I think of Spring in a bedroom, I think light & bright (that's actually how I feel about, pretty much, every room though) and flowers. I could have gone with lighter colored fabric, and I wanted too, but I needed some boldness to keep a masculine feel. I don't think Mike is down for a super feminine room. I have to keep things gender neutral around here. Plus, the less he complains means the less he notices. Not sure if that's how it works, but whatever makes him team "transition for Spring". 

How have you introduced Spring into your home? Need any ideas or help? Leave a comment and let me know, I'm full of ideas and would love to help. Until next time...

Cheers guys,
