Spring began yesterday and already the days feel lighter and easier. Daffodils are poking up out of the ground and some have a few buds ready to burst. Of course, it’s Illinois which means we could still get snow this month or even next. Regardless, I’m keeping my spirits up, which led me to look for colorful rooms that feel like spring.
Refreshing Living Rooms
It’s easiest to create a spring-fresh living room when you start with a white base. Then you can add accents in a range of spring colors like pink, blue, green, yellow, and lavender. You could also use these colors to paint the walls and use a variety of accent colors. This first living room caught my eye right away. It’s soft and elegant all at once. I need that little floral pillow in my life.
The next living room is wallpapered but still has plenty of white to set off the brighter colors. The mix of pinks and greens is so refreshing.
I don’t think most people would purchase a teal-colored sofa but it looks great in this space. The pops of navy and pink lend a bit of sophistication and feel light and playful.
Soft shades of blue and green bring this sunny living room to life and help to combat spring fever. Even if it’s cold outside, it feels a bit tropical in here.
This first kitchen appears to have pale lavender walls – or maybe it’s just the shadows of the room A pretty floral shade on the window lends springtime cheer, not to mention the collection of tulips and spring flowers in vases.
Pale, spring green cabinets pair with a powder blue stove and hood to add soft color in a somewhat rustic kitchen. The palette is pleasing and is a great example for creating soothing, colorful rooms.
How about brighter colors to add cheer to a kitchen and dining area? You can’t help but smile when entering this cottage style kitchen.
Add the color of the ocean to a kitchen with pale gray cabinetry and soft blue tiles for a back splash. A big bouquet of blue hydrangeas completes the look.
Pale pink and gray tiles add a lovely pop of color against soft gray cabinetry. A patterned floor creates additional color and interest. This lovely English kitchen feels like the soft side of spring.
Colorful Rooms to Dine In
Say hello to a fun mix of colors in this cozy dinette off the kitchen. The bright green, glass-topped table is the centerpiece of the room and is beautifully flanked by powder blue metal farmhouse chairs. Colorful pillows and flowers finish the look.
This English style dining room reminds me of a soft spring rain. The kind where the birds don’t fly away but chirp happily waiting for the worms to emerge from the ground.
Yes to pink and green in the dining room! I love the bold choice of wallpaper and the pale green and white checkerboard floor. Did you notice the same lattice-style pattern in the paper? And that looks like a cat door on the bottom right side of the double doors leading outside.
Spring Fresh Bedrooms
What really got me to looking at spring-inspired rooms was the fact that I’m currently re-doing my bedroom. I thought I was going decorate with a more neutral theme that includes the color green, but then I saw this post that had me re-think my direction. Olive green paired with pink and blue. Who knew how pretty that palette is? I hope to reveal my bedroom makeover the first Saturday of April. For now, feast your eyes on these pretty bedrooms.
Love this bedroom! I think that’s a tree pattern on the wallpaper. The patterned rug is beautiful and the four-poster bed is to-die-for. The bamboo night stand tugs at my heart strings. I’ve always had a thing for furniture with a bamboo motif. I think it stems from the bedroom furniture I had in high school. My mom let me pick everything out myself.
Please tell me you smiled when you saw this quaint farmhouse bedroom with minimalist style. The bright yellow-flowered pillows and bedspread looks whimsical with the blue plaid coverlet. It’s okay if you didn’t smile. We all have different tastes and styles, which is what makes the world go ’round!
Maybe you prefer this colorful bedroom with its bright aqua bed and coral-colored rug.
Spring Fresh Bathrooms
We’re on to the last room in this collection of colorful rooms that feel like spring has sprung. Apple green pairs with a lot of white to create an uplifting bathroom space. A couple pops of pink and blue give the room more dimension.
I know some of you are fans of pink and green and it doesn’t get any better than this in the bathroom. The green tile is such a rich shade and that pink bowl sink! So cute.
For something a little more traditional, this navy blue and white bathroom adds a bit of spring with yellow calla lilies in a vase. Sometimes all you need is a few flowers to brighten a space.
I hope you enjoyed this collection of colorful rooms inspired by spring. Click on any of the photos to see more of the room or the house by the designer.
