It might seem hard to believe, but it’s springtime already.

It might seem hard to believe, but it’s springtime already. This time last year, the weeks seemed to crawl by, day by day. But if you have been daydreaming about ways to let nature back inside, we have some great news for you! Outdoor living doesn’t need to only be restricted to porches, patios, decks, and outdoor kitchens. Let’s look at how you can supercharge your home’s springtime refresh this April!

Cultivate Some Healthy Houseplants 

One of the easiest ways to greet springtime is by bringing some fun houseplants home. They smell nice, can help oxygenate the room, remove bad odors, and help you concentrate. Think about it – that’s perfect for working from home! Succulents are a great way to help first-time plant parents learn the ropes. Meanwhile, you can also get ambitious and try growing a “green wall” – which is also known as a vertical garden. Perhaps something to give your conservatory more interesting inhabitants?

Incorporate Natural Building Materials 

Many homes, especially those that are custom-built, benefit from the latest construction trends. Today’s homeowners tend to be far more conscious about their impact on the environment than their predecessors from previous generations. As such, find ways to integrate natural building materials into your design. Wood and stone are the most commonly used materials, but you can also play mix-and-match with jute, wicker, rattan, and bamboo.  

Add Artwork That Evokes Nature 

Sometimes, you don’t have to go the whole nine yards with remodeling or renovating. A little bit of redecorating could do the trick. Start by adding some artwork that reminds you of your favorite natural surroundings. Either purchase themed artwork (hopefully from local artists or shops!) or try your hand at making your own. Who knows, maybe you will discover a hidden talent or two!

Go Outside and Grab Free Decor

If you’ve been keen to resume your weekend hiking excursions, do so with some newfound intention. In other words, go outside and grab some free decor. Collecting shiny rocks, odd pinecones, and pretty seashells can all make for charming additions to your home, and infuse it with some serious springtime vibes!
