Is it spring and you want to bring that spirit in your house? Well then it is time for some spring décor done in a cost efficient way. Start by adding a new coat of paint on the walls of your living room. Use colours like light blue, green or yellow. Change the area rug of your house. Put a rug with floral designs and one made of light material. If you can, then make your room bright with the use of lamps.

If there are a number of windows, especially large ones in your home then use light curtains instead of heavy ones. The best thing to do is keep two sets of curtains, one for spring and one for winter. You can also drape your sofa with pastel colored covers. Use shades like lavender and pink. You can even use green or blue. Lastly do not forget to add flowers in your dining room or living room.
