If the winter blues have suddenly crept into your home, you don’t have to let it hold you and your family members hostage for a long time. There are various ways to spruce up your home and bring in some life into it through the use of springtime colors. You can do this by having the accent walls or entire rooms painted in spring colors like greens, pinks, yellows, oranges and turquoise. You can even incorporate these colors in your window treatments, wallpapers and bed linens.

Yes, bringing springtime colors into your winter home with the following creative ideas will surely prove to be very helpful at the end of the season. Whether it is in the living room, master bedroom or children’s rooms, you will love them.
Play with Color in your Bedroom:
When you infuse the interiors of your bedroom with bright springtime colors like deep oranges, greens, turquoise, pinks and yellows, the winter blues is sure to quickly take a leave from your home. If you don’t want to go bold, you can mute the colors with traditional winter colors like gray, chocolate and black, but lightly.

Lighten up your Living Room:
You may not know it but letting in natural light into your living room gives it a sort of springy feel, even though it is winter. You can also add more light through the use of brighter lighting fixtures and installation of sheer window treatments. You can also make the room lighter by replacing the woolen throws with bright lace pieces and the copper flower vases with glass vases.

Add Floral Patterned Linens:
The children’s rooms also need springy touches to them. In this regard, there is the need to replace the wool and fur fabrics with floral patterned coverlets, linens and duvet covers. With floral sheets and flower-printed covers for the pillows, the children’s room will be definitely lively, winter or not.

Yet another simple way of bringing in spring into your home, you can go for the very colorful Kalachoe or if you prefer sweet-smelling plants, you can go for the Jasmine. In your dining area, you can have assorted fruits like pomegranates, apples and oranges on the table to add more color to that part of the home.
