Is your apartment ready for spring? Nantucket Gate Blog has a few decorating tips to help you bring the colors and feeling of spring into your Tacoma, WA apartment. Use these tips when decorating your home for a brighter and more inviting atmosphere.

Paint the Walls

If painting is allowed in your apartment, you can have some fun by painting the walls of your home. Make sure to double check your contract and the terms of your lease first before you start painting. You can easily add a bright and cheery spring look with muted yellows, pinks, oranges, and reds.

Use Colorful Furniture and Pillows

If painting your apartment is not an option, try adding some fun colored furniture, throw pillows, vases, or picture frames. Don’t go overboard, though — too many colors can be overwhelming and can make you feel stressed. Add little splashes of subtle color to draw the eye, but keep it minimal so your efforts don’t clash.

Add Colorful or Patterned Rugs

A rug can do a lot to bring a room together and open up a space. Add a fun pop of color to a room with a colorful or patterned rug. A colored rug can brighten up an otherwise plain room and bring it to life. Spring is the perfect time to experiment with bright colors and fun patterns in your apartment.

Decorate with Houseplants and Flowers

Bring life and color into your apartment with plants and flowers. If you are worried about forgetting to care for your plants, you can opt for a low maintenance houseplant or artificial plants and flowers. Bright and pastel colors will help summon springtime in your apartment.

Hang Curtains

Curtains can create a comfortable and put-together look for the living room. Generally, a neutral color will look best, but curtains can also work well to be an accent or bright color based on your color scheme. Curtains frame the window, making it look beautiful.
