5 Interior Design Tips to Bring Spring into Your Home | Highlighted

After spending several months in the dark and cold winter where you probably suffered from a severe case of cabin fever, you are probably looking for exciting ways to spruce up your home. Now that we’ve returned to some semblance of normality after years of pandemic lockdown, it’s great to be able to mingle with friends and family back home.

If you’re ready to spice up your home, it might be a good idea to start by including some of this season’s hottest trends. This is especially important if you plan to sell your home this spring. So here are some tips for adding delicious springtime banter to your decor.

Return to open plan living

Before the pandemic, the open concept was all the rage. However, when the closings started, there seemed to be a tendency to live in a closed concept. It may have been to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Or because the house was much busier during the day than ever before, people preferred more privacy to complete their work. But what we’re seeing now is a re-emergence of the ever-popular open-concept floor plan. As you make your home feel more like spring, it’s a good idea to create a light and airy feel by creating an open floor plan. And if you already have an open concept, doing more to create fluidity between each space will be a great way to bring the feeling of spring into your space.

Consider space for rejuvenation

Not only has the pandemic changed the “lay of the land” in our homes, it has also limited our ability to frequent spas, massage parlors and other places outside the home that provide us with the refreshing experiences which we need. Since it doesn’t seem like we’re in the clear, it might be a good idea to incorporate your own inner oasis to help you take care of yourself. For example, you can go all out and completely renovate your bathroom with luxurious bathing spaces and dim lighting. Or you can keep it simple by adding candles, aromatherapy products, fluffy towels and a bath spray to turn your tub into the ultimate temporary hot tub.

Bring the outside, inside

Another way to enjoy spring is to incorporate outdoor elements to create a seamless flow. The easiest way to do this is to bring in some greenery, including beautiful, easy-to-maintain houseplants. A wall of greenery will make you feel like you’re outdoors, minus the stings and stings of insects.

We turn arround

If you haven’t noticed, curves are all the rage. And I’m not referring to a fashion trend either. But you might be able to thank the fashion industry for creating trending curves in interior design. Many contemporary spaces are starting to see more curved furniture. While straight lines dominated decor in the past, this season is moving towards arcs and curves. These shapes are not only inspired by the female form, but also by rounded elements of nature. The transition from dominant straight lines to curved lines provides a harmonious balance in the interior. And this trend seems to be here to stay, at least for a while.

Create the perfect space for entertaining outdoors

Post-pandemic, outdoor entertainment has become far more desirable than ever. As a result, homeowners expand their homes directly onto the patio. Many don’t just add great seating and decorative aisles. Instead, they add the perfect space for entertaining. These days, you can find TVs, bars, kitchens, pizza ovens and more to make the outdoor experience that much more enjoyable. And if you need to sell your home quickly, an attractive yard could be the way to attract more buyers.


Spring is a time of renewal. It is also a time when we all resume many outdoor activities. So if you want your home to feel alive, these are just a few new ways to bring the feeling of spring indoors.
