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.

Beating the Winter Blues with Animal Garden Sculptures

Depending on the location, February is a month that can mark the end of winter, or a time when we still have to endure cold weather accompanied by short days and long nights. In southern states, the second month of the year often leads into the first mild days of spring. However, up north, rare mild days in February are usually followed by a choice of flurries, freezing rain, and a frozen backyard.

The bulk of the winter might be over but many of us still have to deal with a chronic case of winter blues. Vacations to sunnier, warmer climates are the best remedy, but if we can’t get away, we have to resort to other means of dealing with winter’s final weeks. One possibility is spending more time in a sun room. Whether the room in question acts as a greenhouse or as an enclosed back porch, as long as the place is bathed in sunlight, it can work wonders at this time of year. Decorate that warm, sunny corner of the home with house plants and cheery, summer decor and it might become your favorite spot to read a book, enjoy meals, or just wait until it’s warm enough to venture back outside.

In terms of decor, a vase and urn or two are easy, beautiful ways to showcase flower cuttings that remind us of picnics and walks in the country on warm, summer days. Framed paintings of spring and summer scenes also work well, and we can lend a vibrant look to the sun room by way of beautiful stained glass works of art. Other worthwhile decorations include any number of garden statues, especially ones that were used in last year’s backyard. Take a few of those favorite small garden sculptures out of storage and they can act as a useful reminder that spring will be back in a month or so.

We can also beat those winter blues by shopping for new spring decor. These items can take the form of any type of new statues suited for the backyard, including certain animal garden statuary that look just as lovely inside the home as in the garden. Although the best animal statues are always going to be the ones best suited to our decorating needs and themes, adorable animal sculptures are especially good at lending a fun, cozy touch to their surroundings.

Such “cozy” sculptures can take the form of functional decor like Pancho the Burro Planter and welcome signs highlighted with animals, as well as a variety of detailed, life-like statues. Even small statues can lend a cheerful look, especially when they happen to be sculptures of cute little baby chicks. By merit of their size, these and other versatile and adorable animal statues can be shown on tables and window sills, as well as in a corner or near the back door. When the time comes for decorating the garden, they work just as well near flower beds and as “pets” for garden gnomes.

Other farm animal statues also work well at beating the winter blues, including beautiful sculptures of lambs, hens, and even cute flying pigs! Compliment them with equally cute statues of puppies and kittens to ensure smiles during the final cold stretch of winter. Anything along the lines of the high quality, realistic “Lover Boy” Puppy Dog Statue is a good choice as is cute functional decor like the Bright Eyes Solar Bulldog Garden Statue, or a Jack Russell Terrier Dog Welcome Statue.
