Tips for Styling Your Living Room This Spring

Does your living room look exactly the same as when you first moved into your home?

If so, it might be time to switch things up, and spring is the perfect excuse to make an update. Not only do you want your living room to be comfortable and have eye-catching design, but around this time of the year, you can also take a cue from the themes of spring to breathe new life into this highly used space.

From pops of colour to soft fabrics and neutral undertones. spring is the season of life. Make your living room one you want to enjoy life in!

Breathe Some Colour Into Your Life

Say goodbye to the drab and dreary days of winter!

One of our favourite spring decoration ideas is to introduce a new colour to your living room to instantly brighten things up. The most obvious place to start is with your sofa. How about a green velvet sofa for a little vintage luxury, a blue linen-look sofa for a cozy and welcoming look, or the Calla Linen-Look Fabric Sofa in blue to go with your sleek mid-century decor?

You can also think outside the box and add colour to your spring decor with a fun accent chair, ottoman, throw pillow, or piece of wall art. With whichever piece of furniture you choose, stick to light, cheery, whimsical and spring-inspired hues, such as blues, greens and pinks, to celebrate the season. Playful pastels are perfect for spring and also trending for 2021 interior design. Better yet, they also have the power to instantly brighten up neutral hues popular for 2021, such as dark slate grey and earthy beige.

Recharge in Comfort

Life is stressful, but your living room shouldn't be.

You need a comfy place to relax and recharge, which is why we love high-tech recliners that really treat you to something special. Sore muscles and stressful days will be a thing of the past as soon as you sit down in the Urban Elite heated massage chair from Panasonic and select the full-body deep tissue massage option. Another awesome chair that complements your best living room decor ideas is the Enzo power reclining chair with a button panel to tilt your headrest and recline your seat. It's even outfitted with LED lights around the cupholders and a USB port to keep your phone charged! How cool is that?

Chances are that you'll be getting more active in the outdoors with the warmer temperatures and sunnier days, so there's really nothing quite like coming home to one of these chairs in your living room after a big adventure.

Pair Fun Textures to Bring Depth

There's more to spring decor than just colour and comfort. Spring is also a time for new textures - think soft flower petals between your fingers, invigorating blades of grass between your toes and the refreshing feeling of crisp morning air.

Bring those elements of the outdoors into your home with living room ideas involving textures that just beg to be touched. Add a blush-coloured West Polyester Ottoman beside your sofa or accent chair to give your living room a woven look that is reminiscent of a picnic basket on a lovely spring day.

Perhaps your living room could use the Designed2B Fabric Pod Ottoman, with its overlapping paisley pattern and matching fabric piping to frame the square top? No space is too large or too small for this versatile, texture-enhancing piece!

Upgrade Your Entertainment Experience

While you may be just itching to get outside and enjoy the spring weather, it's also a good idea to be prepared for those days when the rain is falling too hard, the winds are blowing too much .

Now is the perfect time to upgrade your living room's entertainment setup to make it nice and cozy for stormy days. Bring the essence of spring into your space with a barn door-style entertainment center in French country white. Modern farmhouse styling is ultra-trendy for spring decor and we love the fact that you can close the barn doors to hide your television and create a rustic tech-free zone when you want to disconnect and unwind.

To make your entertainment setup more fun for the whole family, The Brick also has some great home theater options with high-tech speakers, as well as soundbars to enhance audio in ways you've never imagined possible.

Take Advantage of Spring Cleaning

Although these living room decor ideas have been mostly focusing on design, comfort and entertainment so far, there's no denying that springtime is cleaning time in many Canadian households. Step up your spring cleaning game with a new vacuum that does way more than just push dust and dirt around the room.

One excellent spring cleaning vacuum is the Dyson Ball Multi-Floor 2 Upright Vacuum that's light, slim and easy to maneuver into every nook and cranny with powerful suction. For quick spot cleaning and to access hard-to-reach places, homeowners also love the Dyson V7 Motorhead Origin Cordless Stick Vacuum with a convenient docking station and easy handheld control.

In addition to getting a new vacuum in your life, living room spring cleaning should also involve a good dusting of all the surfaces, decluttering the table tops and washing the curtains.
