Spring is a time of rebirth, which gets a lot of people craving something fresh and new. The bedroom is often a room that receives little thought, especially since most people don’t spend a lot of time in there. If your bedroom is screaming for a refresh, consider the following ideas to add color for a fresh, new look.
Invest in New Sheets
If your bedsheets have seen better days, swap them out for some new, colorful ones to brighten up your space. Look for soft pastel shades and patterns to bring in that much-needed pop of color without going overboard.
For an even more dramatic effect, bring the color out into the rest of the room with complementing throw pillows and blankets for a cohesive look that isn’t overwhelming.
Embellish as You See Fit
Throw pillows and other embellishments add an extra layer of texture and color that can be changed out as needed to update the look of your bedroom space. Choose colors and patterns that fit your mood or the season and switch the accents out as you see fit for a change that keeps your space looking and feeling fresh and new.
Don’t Forget the Artwork
Don’t want to paint to get that pop of color you so desire in your bedroom? That’s fine! There’s no need if you hang a few colorful and interesting pieces of artwork on the walls instead.
There’s no need to spend a lot of money on this idea, however. Artwork is anything you want it to be, so get creative. Paint a canvas yourself or print something off the Internet. Just be sure your masterpiece includes colors from your throw pillows and other accents to ensure a cohesive look.
Use the Nightstand to Your Advantage
Your nightstand presents a great opportunity for showcasing a few of your favorite things. Beyond the alarm clock and a bedside lamp, add a couple of knick-knacks in colors to match your bedding.
Also, use containers, baskets, and other organizational items to separate and hold all your things. Again, choose colors that complement your décor for a functional and fun way to store your belongings.
Give a Nod to Nature
Plants and other natural elements can be another way to add color and interest to your bedroom space. Whether real or faux pas, hanging or standing; plants and flowers give you that nod to nature that help create a calm, relaxing space you’ll love to spend time in.
Not many people give a second thought to their bedroom décor because they don’t spend a great deal of time in the room. With that said, if you’re looking for ways to update the décor with color, try one or all the suggestions listed above for a great springtime refresh.
