Redecorate the House for Spring

A change of seasons is the perfect excuse to redecorate. As neighborhood trees gain leaves and temperatures climb, why not mimic those changes in the garden with modifications inside the home? It’s a chance to celebrate the end of winter and the concurrent start of spring, and an opportunity to mark new beginnings. This fresh start in redecorating can be carried out in a number of ways, and involve anything from a few indoor statues to a major make-over of every room in the home.

Before getting started with redecorating for spring, it’s worth it to take a walk through the home and think about the winter decor that can be put back into storage, and the extent to which we would like to modify the home. If we don’t feel anything good about the look of a certain room or hallway, we might want to go as far as changing the color of the room in addition to replacing the decor. More commonly, we notice a need for a few small changes here and there, and can make those happen with a variety of unique, high quality items.

We can also redecorate to match the change in garden decor. As we inaugurate a new backyard with classic outdoor garden water fountains and beautiful angel statues, we can also decorate the living room with angel-themed wall decor, and a cute animal statue or two. Angel decor for the interior of the home can take the form of items like the classy Guiding Angel Sculptural Wall Frieze by artist Ellen Mary Rope (1855-1934), and functional, elegant decor like the Brixton Abbey Angel Wall Sculpture.  These and other angelic sculptures and decorations lend a blend of class and peaceful elegance to any room, and many such items can also be admired on garden walls or on the back porch during the summer months.

Speaking of wall decor in general, the texture and storied appearance of a high quality frieze can lend a breath of fresh air to any room and augment its atmosphere. It’s also another easy way to give a home or place of business a touch of elegant class, and thus impress guests and clients.

Colorful decor also works well when we want to influence the atmosphere of the home interior, especially at the start of spring. Just as tulips and other flowers begin to peek out of the ground, and color comes back into the garden, we can match that natural palette with beautiful stained glass decor. The Fruit of the Vine Stained Glass Window and other, similar, high quality stained glass items glow with rich, cheerful hues when placed in a window. For this reason, they act as an easy way to give the home a beautiful touch at any time of the year although spring might be the most suitable month to enjoy their bright fresh colors.

In keeping with cheerful, fun decor, spring is also the perfect season to decorate with good-natured items like the Hog Heaven Twinkle Toe Pig Statue. The small size, colors, and details of this happy, dancing pig make it an ideal addition to a living room, mantel, or dining table. This and other happy decor also work well at the beginning of spring because they can match our relief that winter is finally over. As with any humorous decor, dancing pig statues and similar, creative, unique interior decor will also put a smile on the face of every guest and act as a conversation piece.

Four Interior Decor Ideas for the Winter Months

The holiday season is over and with it comes a promise of cold weather for much of Canada and the USA. In many places, a green garden is a memory covered by a cold, white blanket in the backyard, and, in most places where snow is lacking; it’s still too cold and wet to enjoy the backyard. This will eventually pass but it will be a month or more before fresh green shoots of grass peak out of the garden soil. The good news is that in the meantime, we can fulfill all of our decorating desires right inside the cozy warmth of the home while we make plans for our spring and summer gardens. Try these five ideas to make the most of fantastic interior decor during the cold months of winter:

Indoor statues: Who says that sculptures can only be used outside? Many a refined home also features one or more statues. These can take the form of classic statuary, African sculptures, and even detailed, realistic statues of animals. With dozens of indoor sculpture ideas to choose from, the best statues for a winter home depend on the decorating theme already inside the house. If Egyptian art is on display, eye-catching, quality Egyptian statues like the ©”Isis, Goddess of Egypt” Statue, and larger sculptures like The Egyptian Grand Ruler Collection: Life-Size Thoth Statue lend an additional, stunning, splendid look to the home.

Likewise, a Venus of Arles Sculpture is an easy way to give a touch of class to any home or place of business. This can also be achieved with small statues of angels, a fairy sculpture or two, or other small statues that were used in the backyard during warmer days.

Unique wall decor: Sometimes neglected, often decorated with nothing more than a few average pieces of decor, the walls of the home offer more decorating opportunities than many people realize. This winter season, get creative, think outside the box, and try decorating with various types of animal-themed decor, Egyptian items, and wall sculptures that also work in the garden. We can give character to a blank wall with minimal materials like decals and adhesive patterns, as well as large, eye-catching decor like the Freedom’s Pride American Eagle Wall Sculpture, and augment the classic beauty of other decor in the house with beautiful sculptural wall pediments.

Exquisite lighting: It might be darker during the winter but that’s the perfect excuse to decorate and experiment with beautiful, indoor lighting. We can light up the hallways with medieval-themed sconces that help turn any home into a personal castle, use Gothic-themed lighting to give the place the character and personality we have always wanted, and give the home a lovely vintage look with fantastic floor lamps like the Peacock Goddess Torchiere. Other floor lamps can also be employed to decorate the home with sculptures of animals, dragons, and classic themes. Augment the beauty of those floor lamps with stained glass illuminated pedestals, and exquisite table lamps.

Antique replica paintings: Framed art has acted as classic, staple decor for centuries and with good reason. A beautiful painting can capture nostalgic, timeless scenes, represent a range of emotions, or just lend a lovely look to the rooms of any home. Thanks to the skills of modern day artists, we can also decorate the home with detailed, high quality replicas of paintings seen in museums. These include replicas of Impressionist paintings, works that pay homage to the Renaissance era, and American West themed artwork.
