Springtime Decorating Tips for Renters
Spring has arrived, which means it’s time to reinvigorate your apartment’s decor with a fresher, lighter look. If you’re thinking about how you want to update your decor for the season, try one of these decorating ideas.
For the DIYer…Not feeling the traditional wreath for your front door? Craft this floral door basket instead. The secret ingredient? Plastic bottles. Upcycle the empty bottles by stuffing them in the basket and covering them with sheet moss, then follow the steps in the tutorial to fill the basket to overflowing with beautiful spring flowers.
For the lover of all things traditional…You can always count on Martha Stewart to reinvent old-school decor in a modern way. That’s precisely what she does with these spring-inspired placemats. She recommends finding a table runner in your favorite spring colors or print, and then simply cut it to the size you want and hem the edges. Or skip the DIY and just pick up a fresh set of placemats to jazz up your table for the new season.
For the farmhouse enthusiast…If you’re an avid watcher of HGTV, then you probably love a good farmhouse. Make your apartment look like a contemporary farmhouse by decorating with fresh greens, such as succulents, accessorizing with colorful throw pillows, and opting for wicker pieces of furniture.
