Botanical Whimsy

Since wallpapering an entryway takes time, money, and serious commitment, try a less permanent solution, like these Lulu DK art decals [4]. How fun would it be to do an accent wall with these?

Branching Out

If you're waiting to sprout a green thumb before committing to that fiddle leaf fig tree [7], the wait is over. Take a shortcut to the indoor tree trend by arranging leafy or blossoming branches into a vase. Placing the vase on top of a tall piece of furniture helps to create the height and illusion of a tree.

Bright Linens

Light and bright, new linens like this tea towel [16] ($40 for two) or these napkins [17] ($25) will make a vibrant addition to your kitchen this Spring.

Blossoming Art

Even if you can't manage to keep fresh florals in the house, capture their color and texture with artwork. We're crazy about Kari Herer [18]'s multimedia pieces — chic and totally affordable.

Creamy Curtains

It's time to switch out the dark drapes for something light and airy. You'll be surprised by the brightening power of pale curtains. These floral drapes [20] ($108-$168) are exactly what we have in mind!

Two-Minute Tulips

If you think keeping fresh flowers in the house sounds high maintenance, allow us to introduce you to the two-minute tulip trick. Save money and time by buying just a handful of tulips and placing them in cool vintage bottles. Feeling inspired? Here are two more easy Spring centerpiece ideas [21]!
