Spring brings a renewed, refreshed energy, and we should absolutely be using it in our living spaces! It’s natural human behavior to be impacted by our surroundings, and we believe our living space should make us happy.
We know that around springtime, Marshall Pines Memory Care and Transitional Assisted Living residents love when we refresh our spaces for spring and the incoming warm weather.
This year, we want to remind you to think about how our spaces can help us feel happier, less stressed, and ready for something new! So we’re bringing you this year’s trendiest spring decor ideas so you can refresh your loved one’s space.
Pantone has announced their color of the year, and it’s a vibrant shade perfect for spring. According to Pantone, Viva Magenta “is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement.”
Some might be intimidated by the color due to its intensity. So, what can you do with Viva Magenta? We’ve got a few ideas! If you want to go bold, you’ve certainly got options. Check out this adorable magenta loveseat that can add a pop of color to an office or bedroom. We’re just a little obsessed with the scalloped back. For something a little more subtle, go for an accent piece like a throw blanket. Bring a splash of color to your kitchen with these stemless glasses, or wear the color of the year with this Essie nail polish!
A big decor trend we’ll see this season is uniqueness and individuality. Everyone will have their personalities on display throughout their home from living room to kitchen to wardrobe. This will look different for everyone! Maybe you’re a texture person who wants to incorporate different natural woods or distressed surfaces. If you’re the type of person who likes different patterns, you might include various different geometric patterns around your space. Maybe you have an eclectic style and love to put things together that normally wouldn’t be partnered up. For example, mixed metals or clashing colors. Find your creativity and inspiration and decorate accordingly!
One of the best things about spring is the way beautiful plants pop up all over the place! The phrase, “April showers bring May flowers” is popular for a reason. Spring is all about bringing the outdoors in, from live plants to natural materials. You can really spruce up your living space by adding these natural touches.
Did you know having indoor plants actually improves air quality and supports cognitive health? If you’re thinking “but I’ve killed every plant I’ve ever had,” don’t worry–there are low-maintenance plants that are perfect for you. We highly recommend the Chinese money plant! The leaves will tell you if it needs more or less water. If the leaves cup upward, they need more water. If the leaves dome downward, they’ve had too much. Keep it humid with some sprits from a water bottle, and you’re done!
If you’re not quite ready for a plant, another great way to bring nature indoors is to include natural materials like rattan, cane, wicker, and ceramics. Consider a wicker basket or a woven rattan lamp shade.
While we spring clean and get rid of things that don’t bring us joy, many of us will reach for the things that feel like home. That’s why we’re seeing such an upward trend in creating a restorative space. To create that cozy, relaxed feeling, consider the accents: blankets, pillows, lamps, rugs, anything that creates a soft, cozy ambience. Whatever that means and looks like for you is perfect!
We hope you’re feeling excited for the new season and taking some of these decor tips along with you.
