We can’t control Mother Nature, but we can control the interior décor of our home.  You can bring the life back into your home and make it feel fresh and clean, no matter what the weather is outside, with some colorful “Spring Flower Power” tips.

On Your Walls

So you may not be ready to strip down your room and re-paint your walls or hang wallpaper, just to dress up your home for spring. 

Luckily there are plenty of other ways to dress up your walls!

Murals

Flower murals aren’t just for pre-teens and nurseries they make a tasteful statement above a sofa, atop a headboard, or along a stairway.   You can make it as bold, or simple as you desire.

Stencils

Stenciles are a simple way to add your favorite designs to a wall.  But keep in mind you'll want to be detail oriented or hire a good painter.

Companies like Royal Design Studio, provide templates for floral designs.

Artwork

Artwork is another fun and colorful way to dress up your home.  Pick up a vintage print from a local antique store, or thrift shop; search for a new painting at your favorite gallery; or shop online for an assortment of replica’s, then have them professionally frames for a classy appearance.  Good art never goes out of style.
