Spring Decorating Ideas for 2018

by | May 4, 2018

Sometimes it feels as though winter will never end. Depending upon your location in the country, this might very well mean that you’ve been living in relative darkness and snow for the past few months. It is perhaps no surprise, then, that by the time spring finally dawns across the States the vast majority of individuals living within it are more than ready to welcome it. Spring is often considered a kind of “rebirth” – a time for everyone to start fresh with their goals and their habits. This can even be seen in common activities like “spring cleaning”, where everyone cleans out their home from the dust and gloom of winter and pulls out their light spring clothes and throws their windows open to catch some fresh air.

Given the general popularity of spring and the various ways that its arrival impacts our lives, it shouldn’t shock you to know that the season is one of the most popular for which to decorate. From beautiful florals to dreamy abstracts, you are sure to find a print to fit your mood and your style at Fine Art America. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular spring art options and how they might fit into your decorating scheme!


Floral Prints Capture the Season

Springtime is, as briefly mentioned above, a time of reawakening. This is meant quite literally when it comes to nature, as spring is when flowers begin to bloom and reemerge after the cold of the long winter months. It almost seems as though they emerge from the ground in order to congratulate us for making through another winter season and are appreciated by almost anyone who notices them. With that in mind, it is unsurprising that one of the most popular art purchases during the springtime is the floral print.

There are many different ways you can incorporate floral patterns into your room. Some shy away from the thought of floral artwork because they believe that such patterns will end up dominating their rooms, but that doesn’t have to be the case! Whether you are looking for a bold print to capture interest or a few smaller pieces to compliment the rest of your color scheme, floral can be an incredible addition to almost any room.

If you’re interested in a more contemporary and sleek decorating scheme, for example, you can still invest in a clean, bold print that serves as your pop of color in an otherwise minimalistic atmosphere. Brightly colored rooms will compliment busier prints well, while softer floral options can help bring a bit of calming whimsy to your space.

Soft Abstract Prints to Bring Serenity to Your Home

Another popular art purchase when it comes to springtime decorating is the soft abstract print. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, these prints are designed to help bring an interesting bit of color into your living space. The great thing about these prints is that you can easily dress them up or down depending upon your needs.

If you want to create a room that is calming and serene, for example, you might pick up a large print to serve as the main focal point of the area and decorate the rest of the room in complementing hues. If you already have a rather bold or solid color theme in place, then abstract prints can instead serve as the complements! They can be used to help draw attention to the main piece of artwork in your room, in other words, rather than dominating attention by themselves.

Bold, Bright Colors to Welcome the Weather

Finally, bold, bright prints are definitely in season this time of year. Some people like to chase away the last of the winter gloom by adorning their walls with prints dominated by bright colors. Some examples of these might include a collection of animals or flora against a cheerful blue sky.

There are many options that you can use to help decorate any space in your home. Some of these prints have nothing to do with animals or nature at all! Instead, they simply provide bright pops of color amidst an interesting backdrop.

One fun option that seems to gain popularity every year during the springtime is a colorful, literally, headline against a more pastel or monotone newspaper backdrop.

This kind of décor can fit into any room, from your kitchen to your living room, and are available in a wide array of hues.
