Turn your room into your sanctuary this spring

Chances are you're spending a lot of time at home right now, so what better opportunity to give your room a little love? Small changes can equal big happiness boosts when it comes to home decor. Read on for our tips, then get ready to FaceTime your friends to unveil your new and improved bedroom!

Invest in new bedding

New season, new vibe, right? Pastels and bright tones scream spring—and let's face it, it's hard to be in a bad mood when your room is full of happy colors. Whether you want to get a whole new bedding set like the Target find above, or just add a few cute decor pillows, adding color to your bed will brighten up your whole room. 

Bring life into your room

One of the best parts of spring is all the flowers and plants coming back after a long winter. Pick up some pretty houseplants or succulents like these Amazon cuties and display them in your room. No green thumb? Succulents are super low maintenance. 

Let the light in

Sure, blackout blinds come in handy when you want to catch some extra zzzz's, but what about those moments when you want to sit at your desk while you're doing homework and feel the warm sun shining down on you? Lightweight, airy white curtains will do the trick—and the Wayfair style above is under $11!

Smell the sweet air

Scents can change the entire vibe of a room. Pick up candles in fun spring scents like gardenia, citrus or garden mint. If you or your parents aren't into the idea of having candles in your room, check out flameless alternatives like diffusers or wax warmers. 

Give your walls a makeover

Buy wall art that makes you feel happy when you look at it (how cute is the Walmart style above?!). Photos or illustrations of flower fields, the beach or a brightly-colored design will make your walls pop and put you in the spring spirit. For an inexpensive alternative, make a collage of brightly-colored photos of you and your friends!
