Swap in Bright Buds

We're all for styling your buds this season [4], but for some extra Spring oomph, swap out traditional flowers like tulips for ones like bright billy buttons. Plus, these flowers look just as pretty dried, so you can always enjoy a touch of Spring, no matter what.

Give Frames a Coat of Paint

Paint and frames are easily a match made in heaven. A few coats of color [7] will breathe new life into old frames and help inexpensive ones look pricey. Try revamping several frames to create a cohesive gallery wall [8].

Style Succulents

It's no secret we're fans of succulents, but if you think you've seen 'em all, consider one of these styling ideas [11]. Fitting for a tea party or kitchen decor, we love the particular look of turning teacups into planters.

Use Wallpaper — Off the Wall

How smart is this? Cover a fireplace screen (there's no use for it in the Spring anyhow) with a graphic wallpaper pattern, and it'll become a focal point of the room. There are plenty of other unexpected uses for wallpaper [15], like wrapping vases.

Add Some Punchy Pillows

If your digs are starting to look a little drab, toss a bright pillow on the sofa — and voilà! You can always buy some new ones, but we like the idea of DIYing your own pillows [29].
