The days are beginning to feel warmer, and the landscape with its many shades of green is awakening. One only needs to listen to the birds in the early morning to know that spring will be here before long. This is a wonderful time of the year to include a touch of the outdoors in your home interior decorating ideas.
? Let?s start with ?bird-themed? home decorating ideas which can be used in every room. A pretty birdcage makes a whimsical three-dimensional framework for a spring display. Inside of the birdcage place a craft-store twig nest with faux eggs or a petite flower arrangement.
? Ceramic egg cups can be used for decorated Easter eggs, jelly beans or pastel candies.
? To bring the ?bird-themed? d?cor into the powder room, use iron-on transfers to print or color-copy a picture of a bird onto a linen guest towel.
? Look for egg-shaped soaps at specialty shops to use in your guest bathrooms.
? ?Bird-inspired? iron-on transfers can also be used on table linens. Inexpensive paper coasters featuring pictures of birds add a further touch to the springtime table.
? Another natural look to add to your spring decorating ideas is the color, green. Whether you use leafy lettuce green or a serene shade of mint, you will find that a wide range of green represents what you already find in nature.
? Green is synonymous with life and renewal and is plentiful in our natural world. It is a peaceful color with calming effects. Use a variety of shades of green for a fresh, springtime feel.
? Because of the endless selection you will have no difficulty finding a suitable shade of green paint color. However, if you don?t want to make a long-term commitment, adding home accessories in the desired shade of green is an easy and effortless way to add nature?s color.
? Home accessories in shades of green include glassware, vases, pillows, afghans/throws, artwork and fabrics.
? Something as simple as putting garden magazines and flower books on the coffee table will help to bring nature inside and add color to your room.
? Simplify your interior decorating by displaying only the things you love. Clutter is distracting and adds stress to your life because of constant upkeep.
Spring is the time for renewal, beautiful flowers, green grass and the songs of birds. Enjoy each and every day!
