The holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year, but the warm weather is starting to roll in as we transition into spring. From the dark colors to everything pastel you can brighten up your apartment with wall decor, flowers, and statement pieces. Even with different decorating styles, there are pieces that can be put into your apartment to show off your personality. 

Wall Decor 

Whether you want something modern, chic, vintage and so on there are numerous wall decor items that will brighten up your apartment and make it feel like home for the springtime. Canvas art, mirrors, and tapestries can be used to give the room a fresh feeling while adding some color. 

1. Canvas Art Ideas

Looking for canvas art can be overwhelming because there are usually isles and isles of canvases for every theme you could possibly think of. For a modern theme, a neutral-colored floral piece can be put on an accent wall. Target has the perfect piece that is elegant and clean for a minimalistic modern look.

These are big pieces that will most likely take up an entire wall in your apartment but the add so much to a room and hide the plain wall behind it. It’s also a really simple way to decorate without putting in that much effort. Buying one tapestry for a wall can also save you money instead of having to buy a couple different art pieces to fill a blank space.

Another big trend, especially with modern decorating, is geometric shapes. A geometric wire centerpiece is simple and adding dainty flowers in the center won’t be overbearing or clash with other decor that may be around the apartment. You could also swap out the flowers for some tea light candles to bring light into the apartment at night.

2. Hanging Plants 

With the sun coming back out again it’s the perfect weather to add plants into your apartment. Hanging plants add decor from all eye levels in an apartment. If you have high ceilings you can add hanging plants onto any blank space on a wall where the sun will reach it. Unless you want to get fake plants, they’re just as pretty but minus all the maintenance and fresh smell.
