March 19th is the first day of spring. Is your home ready? As the dark and cold winter days are hopefully numbered, it’s the perfect opportunity to add new life and color with spring decor. Here are some tips to help your home spring forward!

Make an orchid centerpiece

Orchids are beautiful and perfect to welcome spring into your home. Many people fear orchids because they can be difficult to keep alive. Most orchids die from overwatering, so the best advice is to water every other week and place them in indirect sunlight. Two orchids placed in a planter filled with moss is a stunning centerpiece for your island or breakfast table.

Add color outside

Now’s the time to start thinking about replacing winter florals like pansies with spring and summer annuals like geraniums, marigolds, and petunias. You can also plan a garden for shrubs and trees now–think hydrangeas, gardenias, crape myrtles, and more.

Spruce up your front door

Inject some color and create curb appeal when you add a spring wreath. We love this non-traditional wreath, perfect for spring! You can also add large planters flanking your front door and drop in evergreens or ferns to give your front door some color. Layer on an extra-large welcome mat and your front door is ready for spring guests!

Speaking of sprucing up your front door, maybe it’s time to add a fresh coat of paint to your door. We love the idea of painting the interior or exterior to add some color and character. Here are our favorite front door paint colors.

Add houseplants for an immediate burst of color

Add color naturally when you incorporate houseplants into your home. For those of us with black thumbs, plants like pothos, monstera, boston ferns or snake plants are hard to kill and thrive on neglect. Place your plant babies in colorful planters and you’ve got a winning combination in terms of bringing spring to your home.

Look into fake florals

There’s no shame in the faux game. Especially when the fake stuff looks so real! Here, Lauren has chosen a beautiful planter and filled it with floral foam, faux fern stems, and moss. This can easily work to brighten up a space, now until the holidays!
