Home decor ideas that brighten up the gloomy days of spring

Decorating is always exciting for me, but I find that there's something special about spring that makes it even more of a thrill!  The rainy days of early spring let me know that soon the grass will be green and the buds will once again bloom. This is a signal for me to brighten things up inside my home with color through flowers and simple decor that isn't expensive.  It's also a chance to relieve some of the clutter that has accumulated over the winter months and to reorganize things for a fresh new start.

I start small by adding fresh flowers.  This simple way of decorating is an inexpensive way to brighten up rainy days.  I like to clip flowers from my yard, but since it's still chilly here in early spring it's not possible so I'll purchase inexpensive seasonal flowers from the grocery store and display them in a variety of ways.

A good tip to remember is if you go big with your artwork make sure the colors in the art coordinate with the colors in your home.

Without spending too much money, a great way to brighten up a room for spring is with decorative throw pillows.  You can really cater to your color palette as to what you're feeling at that time.  I use pillows that have zippers instead of ones that are sewn shut.  The reason I do this is that pillow covers take up less storage space, and I like to change my pillows each season so it's just easier for me to zip off one cover and swap it for another.
