Who doesn’t love a good spring refresh? A new haircut, a few new wardrobe staples, a new warm-weather exercise routine—these are all great ways to embrace the season of renewal and vibrance. Sprucing up your home is arguably the best way to prepare for spring. No need to go big—even the smallest details in your environment can make all the difference! Here’s some inspo for refreshing your own space.
1. Fresh Flowers in Every Room
Flowers and spring are an iconic duo. Whether it’s an intricate arrangement or a single stem in a skinny vase, flowers add such a special je ne sais quoi to a room. We love visiting local farmers markets (or, if you’re in the area, The Original Los Angeles Flower Market) to stock up on in-season blooms.
2. Switch Out Your Wall Art
The beauty of wall art is that it doesn’t have to be permanent. Swap out that deep-hued statement piece in your living room for something lighter or brighter for the season. Maybe this is your excuse to add a new work or two to your art collection—knowing that not everything has to be on display at all times.
3. Spruce Up the Outdoors
Springtime in The Palisades is best spent outdoors. At One Coast, spacious coastal homes—each featuring a private veranda or terrace—offers the perfect backdrop for your personal, seasonal touches. Spruce up your outdoor space to prepare for the many al fresco happy hours, dinners, or quiet evenings enjoyed alone to come. Swap out upholstery on your lounge chairs (or swap out for new seating altogether), install a garden box, or add some decorative lighting.
4. Swap Out Your Textiles
When we think of spring, we think light, airy, vibrant, clean, etc. Are there any textiles in your home that don’t currently fit those descriptors? Whether it’s your bedding, throw pillows, an accent rug, or your bathroom towels, consider swapping them out until fall. Since these are often focal points (or just large components) of a room, these swaps make for a low-effort, high-impact refresh.
5. Opt for a Change of Scenery
What if you were to take the idea of refreshing your space for spring a little more literally? Instead of making changes to your current home, consider relocating entirely – whether that be a brand new primary residence or second home to enjoy during the spring and summer months (and whenever else you please, of course). Furnish and decorate your bluff-top haven with elements of spring, like light-colored linens and subtle or striking pops of color.
