Want to get the biggest transformation with the least amount of effort? All you need are pillows! Throw pillows are a super easy decor item that you can switch out throughout the seasons to give any room a timely update.

Swap in some colorful, fun and patterned pillows to instantly spring-ify the look of your living room, bedroom, office, etc. Put dark, wintery pillows to rest for the moment and bring the more vibrant colors out to shine. Neutrals, primary colors and light and bright pastels will all fit wonderfully into a spring color palette.

Pro-tip: keep your pillow inserts and change the covers out seasonally for an extra budget-friendly home update.

Poufs are just as magical as the pretty name makes them sound, and they are making a splash in spring decor this year. They are similar to ottomans, only more versatile and not as clunky – their lack of legs helps them look lighter and more playful than a traditional ottoman.

You can use poufs as footstools in front of a sofa or chair to prop up your feet while you’re relaxing. And, in a pinch, they can even be used as extra seating when guests show up or extra surface space in any room.

We love them because they add a pop of color, pattern, and texture that can transform your look without a hefty price tag. It’s a great way to dip your toe in a trend instead of committing to a pricey sofa or rug that might not stand the test of time.

Even though the calendar days are ticking on, it can sometimes feel like spring is still hibernating. That means it’s up to us to go out and get it!

Bring the outdoors inside with greenery galore. Plants are the epitome of spring – they bring life into a room in a way that other decorative accessories just can’t. Easy to manage houseplants placed throughout a room can magically make the space lighter and airier.

Try a potted plant in a corner, a group of succulents on your table, or a hanging plant if you are short on floor space. We also love faux plant options if you want something low-maintenance that looks happy all year-round!

Getting your house into shape for spring doesn’t have to be a costly commitment! With these quick and simple updates to your home decor, you can brighten up your space and bring the light of spring into any room of your home.

3 Spring Color Palettes We’re Loving Right Now

spring colorsSpring is all about color! It’s literally bursting from the ground and flowering in the trees. Color is always good for the soul, especially after the gloomy days of winter. And what better way to use the magic of spring color than to refresh your living space?

When it comes to your home, adding a punch of bright cheery hues is the perfect way to transition from a cozy cold-weather vibe to a celebration of warmer weather. But you don’t have to use just color in a traditional way. There are all sorts of spring color palettes that can help your space feel fresh.

To get you started, we’re sharing three of our favorite color palettes for spring. Keep scrolling to check them out and shop your favorites for your space!

spring colorsBlue Neutrals

You may not think of blue as a spring color. While baby blue might not be your thing, we say try giving blue another look as a neutral.

When you combine soft blues and natural materials, you get a combo that gives off a major beachy vibe. Instead of a statement color, blue as a neutral makes things cool and casual, allowing you to relax in stylish comfort.

Subdued blue walls can be set off with a blue woven jute rug, crisp throw pillows and a modern piece or two on the wall. Comfortable but light furniture completes the look.

Shop the look of this cool blue interior!

spring colorsTropical Pastels

When you think pastel home decor, you may picture a home that looks like an Easter basket. But these are not your grandma’s pastels (although we love those too!).

Instead, of mint green and baby girl pink, pair shades of teal and blush to instantly spring your space into warm-weather gear. You’ll get a bright and colorful look that is still sophisticated and on trend.

Consider adding accents in natural materials, like a leather and teak chair or a woven berry rug to go with the unique modern furniture. Add other accents of warm pastels to turn your room into a natural gathering place for family and friends.

Shop the tropical pastel look!

spring colorsHigh-Contrast Neutrals

Maybe you prefer to keep the bright colors outside with the plants. That’s fine because a spring palette can be exciting without using colorful colors. Instead, add neutrals with contrast to keep your home feeling fresh without any ROYGBIV interference.

Black and white items against a background of warm leathers feel punchy and vibrant without using any bright color at all. A modern leather sofa pairs with minimalist shelving and a black and white rug to make a strong style statement. Throw pillows and graphic black and white prints add visual interest without relying on bright hues.

Shop the high-contrast neutral room!

Trying out a new spring color palette can immediately give your home extra energy and zest. At Modsy, we make it easy for you to try out different designs and color schemes so that you can find your signature look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new colors, statement furniture and eye-catching accessories. Your home should reflect your taste during all the seasons!
