Spring is (finally) just around the corner for people in the Northern Hemisphere, meaning it’s the perfect time to spring clean and change up your interior décor, just in time for summer. Need some spring décor inspiration? Look no further than these stylish Canadians on Instagram.

Bring color back into the bedroom

An excellent way to freshen up an interior for spring is to incorporate brighter colors into the bedroom. Floral cushions and fun and colorful quilts, as shown here by TV personality Sarah Richardson, are an easy and inexpensive way to brighten an interior in time for spring.

New artwork

A new print can effortlessly change the way you look at a room. One bold idea is to create a gallery wall with several prints in different sizes. Otherwise, why not start small with one new artwork? Amanda Forrest loves abstracts, and this brightly colored artwork is sure to catch people’s attention.

Light up the space

Toronto design duo Kate and Amanda demonstrate how a unique light fitting can make an interior space. Since the days are now longer, show off your dining area or kitchen with special lighting.


It may be a bigger spring décor project, but hanging wallpaper is definitely a great way to transform any room in the house. The vibrant spring-inspired cushions in this living room look amazing juxtaposed against this charcoal and gray background by Lisa Canning.

Fresh blooms

Vancouver-based TV personality Jillian Harris, as well as Martha Stewart, know how important a bunch of fresh flowers are for spring. The colors and the fragrance can instantly lift a room, and your mood. Try different arrangements, varied vase sizes, and space them around the house to put a spring in your step.

Office makeover

Janine Duff, featured on Anna with Love’s blog, shows off her bright home office space. Spring cleaning your office is definitely a must as the season changes. Combine some of the spring décor ideas listed here to transform the space in which you work. For example, buy a fresh bunch of flowers, a new artwork or some pastel accessories to easily freshen up the room.

Pastel accessories

Alyssa from Random Acts of Pastel knows that pastels are a popular color choice for spring, as does HGTV. You can go big and paint a room in a pastel hue, or keep it simple with pastel-colored accessories like Alyssa highlights in her Instagram photo.

Play with plants

Montreal-based photographer Ali knows that greenery is a big spring trend in interiors. The indoor plant market is constantly growing, so why not take advantage? A wall like this is a big commitment, so start small with just a simple potted plant in your living room.

Mellow yellow

No color screams spring or summer more than yellow. An easy way to bring this trend into your home for spring is through yellow cushions or a throw rug, as Jane Lockhart has done in this basement suite. The navy-and-yellow combination works well too.

Rug up

Fun patterned rugs have become more popular in recent years. Take advantage and brighten a space in your house with this one big accessory. Calgary-based designer Amanda Hamilton showed off this room on Instagram, which features a pattern clash between two different-sized rugs, making a big interior impact.
