Check out my 5 tips to spruce up your master bedroom for spring
I prepared this post weeks ago before all the craziness with the Covid-19 crisis that has hit our nation and world. With quarantines and social distancing in place, most of us have been spending a lot of time at home. Naturally, it has made me think about the importance of how our homes truly serve as a place of respite. With the changing of the seasons approaching, I love giving some of the spaces in our home a refresh. It doesn’t have to be complicated but these little updates can make our rooms feel new and fresh again. If you’re looking to update your space, here are my 5 tips to spruce up your master bedroom for spring. My hope is that you can find some of these tips useful in keeping your home a place of refuge, inspiration and joy.

Sleep is so important to our health isn’t it? Since we’re now working from home and juggling online school for the kids, I have been more conscientious about getting good sleep and trying to stay as healthy as possible. When it comes to the master bedroom, I want it to feel cozy and exude peace and warmth. I truly believe the master bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home because it’s where Jimmy and I connect and find respite. Since our room is pretty large, I want it feel like a cocoon.
Here are some of my tips to sprucing up your master bedroom for spring.
- Tip 1: Anchor the room with a rug
Rugs help anchor furniture but also adds warmth and color to a space. We love having carpet in our master bedroom because it helps with noise reduction and keeps our room feeling warm. I can’t stand the cold and so the carpet really helps maintain warmer temperatures during the colder months.
The rug adds on top of the coziness factor and provides a nice foundation for the room. Since we don’t wear shoes in our home, our carpet stays relatively clean through all the natural wear and tear. CRI is a leader on carpets and carpet trends and they recommend regular vacuuming as well as having it professionally cleaned when necessary.
- Tip 2: Change up the art
Art doesn’t have to be expensive but it really does add a lot of personality and character to any space. I found a set of 4 blush botanical prints on Etsy for less than $12. I placed them in simple white frames over our bed. If you are looking for inexpensive and original art, I highly encourage you to look for prints on Etsy. It’s a great way to support small businesses who need it more than ever.
I also found a set of 5 abstract art frames from Homegoods. I hung 4 in this corner and they add a pop of pretty color in this corner and add some nice visual contrast to the navy walls.
- Tip 3: Shop the house
I love playing musical chairs in the home because moving furniture around the house can really freshen up any space without spending any money. I brought in these two arm chairs from my offfice/piano room downstairs. Now, there’s a nice sitting area for reading in front of our windows. Look around your house to see what you can move around.
I also switched out the lamps and brought these tall cylinder ones from the hallway.
- Tip 4: Bring in the plants
Plants and flowers add so much life to a room and I love having them in almost every room in the home. You don’t even need to have live ones if you have trouble keeping them alive. Nowadays, the quality of faux plants are so good that they can be mistaken for real ones.
It can be as simple as cutting some branches from outside your yard and placing them in a vase. Plants can help with the air quality inside the home. Since Jimmy and my kids suffer from seasonal allergies, I try to do what I can to help lessen their symptoms especially during the spring. Did you know that carpet can actually support healthier spaces including people with asthma and allergies? It’s because carpet acts as a trap for allergens s0 when dust settles onto it, your vacuum can easily pick it up!
- Tip 5: Switch up the pillows
Pillows are an inexpensive way to add a little something to your bed or sitting area. There’s nothing like having good comfortable bedding but I love having a few pillows on the bed. Since last year, I started making my bed every morning and it’s become such a good habit. I don’t always fix up the pillows but they sure do make me happy when the bed is completely made. I look forward to getting into that cozy bed every night!
You don’t have to follow all of these tips but doing just a couple can really make a big difference. Staying home has made me become a little more creative since I have to use what I have in the home. If you use any of these tips to spruce up your home, I would love to see them! I hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this time, friends.
Let all that you do be done in Love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
