When the seasons change, so can the look and feel of your space. While Blueground offers fully furnished and equipped turnkey apartments, you can decorate for spring to give any space a unique style. After all, little additions go a long way in making it really feel like home. Ready for a spring refresh in your apartment? Check out this list of eight ideas that will make it a breeze. 

Flower power

Everything comes to life in spring. Plants grow. Flowers bloom. Nature awakens. Bring some of that renewed energy to your place with easy-care apartment plants or a vase of fresh flowers. Whether real or fake, they’ll deliver a pop of color and freshness to any space — your coffee table, kitchen counter, or work desk. Another idea? Hang a wreath bursting with spring foliage on the outside (or inside) of your front door. 

Table touches

Updating the decor atop your kitchen or dining room table makes a big difference. And it’s easy to do! Start by forming the base of your tablescape with a charming spring tablecloth, runner, or placemats. You can’t go wrong with pastel tones. 

Then create a spring-like atmosphere with timeless embellishments. Think decorative birdhouses, faux nests, or bunny figurines. Finally, sprinkle in vintage glass bottles or jars filled with colorful candies. Just keep in mind that odd numbers add visual interest while even numbers provide symmetry. 

Seasonal scents

Smell is a powerful way to set the scene. Also, it can help you sleep better and make your apartment feel cleaner. With so many pleasant spring fragrances, you can give your home a signature scent that you and your guests will love as soon as you step foot inside. 

Garden and fruit-inspired scents are especially popular this time of year. Lavender, rose, honeysuckle, and gardenia deliver a cozy vibe. However, aromas that include pear, orange, and lemon are springtime favorites, too. Whether you like candles or prefer diffusers, you’ll enjoy having a sweet smell in any room. 

Final flourishes

What better way to warm up from the winter than with a cozy glow? Try illuminating your living room or bedroom with a string of fairy lights or paper lanterns. These lights lend a soft, harmonious energy to any area. 

You can’t go wrong with practical pieces either. So bring some decorative wicker baskets into the mix. These cute containers add a natural, rustic ambience. And they’re great for storage as well.  

Lastly, don’t forget your balcony! Because many Blueground apartments have terrific outdoor spaces. Enjoy the sounds of spring outside with a set of windchimes or hang a whimsical butterfly mobile for a splash of color and charm.
