Spring Decoration Ideas for Your Austin Home

By Heather Grass | April 28, 2021

Spring is in full bloom here in Austin, and this is a welcome change given the harsh winter weather we endured just a few months ago. 

If you’re looking to spruce up your home to spread the spring spirit, here are some decorating ideas to consider. 

  1. Take it to the max(imalist)!

Maximalist decor is in right now, and we are here for it. Fun and lively, a maximalist look provides plenty of pop for you and your guests to enjoy. HomesAndGardens.com lists a maximalist approach as one of the top 25 interior design trends for 2021. 

This style lets your creativity shine, giving you the freedom to mix and match, combining a variety of prints and colors to pull your room(s) together. If it sounds a little chaotic, that’s by design. This free-spirited approach is meant to get a little wild — but it’s still important to do it in a way that provides some cohesion with the finished product. 

This video provides some excellent tips for creating the perfect maximalist interior. For a little extra fun, check out this maximalist home. Bold, right?

  1. Use bold, primary colors 

While the maximalist approach encourages you to explore the entire color wheel, another (almost opposite) trend in interior design utilizes primary colors against muted backgrounds. 

The primary colors — red, yellow, and blue — stand out in most instances, but when used alongside natural wood flooring and furniture, their impact is really felt. This contrast draws the eye, making it the perfect way to liven up any space. 

The key here is to focus on the primary colors and to keep everything else muted. No red walls with a yellow couch! Keep everything toned-down, then let the primary colors shout. 

This picture provides a perfect example. Talk about pop! 

  1. Go vintage

Vintage, retro, and reclaimed decor never goes out of style — when it’s used properly, that is. We absolutely love vintage pieces because so many times they bring memories and meaning with them. When the furniture matters to you, you will love it that much more. 

“This style is called romantic: soft, flowing lines, elegant colors, lovingly selected furniture and decor, as if inherited from grandparents – not junk, but the legacy,” writes SmallDesignIdeas.com

A vintage design is something you should gradually build over time, making it a project not just for right now but something you can evolve and layer into the future.
