Spring Office Decor
Your home décor could likely use a splash of post-winter cheer, and your home office is a great candidate for a makeover. The look of your space can have a direct effect on productivity, so, if you’re working from home regularly, it’s worth the upgrade. And, hey, you might just look forward to working in a room that’s just as fresh as what’s happening outside of your window. Need further inspiration? Here are five ways to add touches of spring to your office. Pictured: West Elm Color Pop Office Accessories - Mint
1. Hang a Cheery Tapestry or Textile Renters, listen up: Not all wall color has to come from paint. Instead, you can find a fabric that screams, “spring!” and hang it on a wall in your office. The idea of a wall-hung tapestry might conjure images of college apartments with psychedelic fabrics dangled behind a futon, but this look is nothing but classy when done right. Find a fabric that speaks to you, make sure it’s cut and hung precisely and — voila.

2. Keep It Fresh One of the clearest signs that spring has sprung? The emergence of new flowers, of course. You might not have time to cultivate your own indoor garden, but your local florist can help you channel the blooms, scents and shades of the season. All you have to do is find a cute way to display your freshly cut flowers.

Perhaps you have a tried-and-true vase to fill, or you split your selection over a handful of shabby-chic mason jars. If you're limited on desk space, try a small jar or bud vase, like the one pictured above. No matter what, you’ll be bringing in a healthy dose of that spring feeling into your office décor.
3. Let the Light In You might have lost touch with it during a dreary winter, but we promise that the sun still exists. It may not particularly be a “spring color,” but sunlight should be welcomed into your home office. For one thing, it has been shown to boost workplace performance across a handful of studies. It also makes a space look and feel much warmer than artificial light. Swap out your blinds for light sheer curtain panels to let more light in.
Perhaps your office has a lack of windows or the traditional office doors block access to natural light. A weekend of DIY could remedy your problem with a new set of glass doors that will make the entire room feel brighter and breezier, just like spring.

4. Play With Pastels No color group better represents spring than soft pastels. We say pastels, plural, because all pastels go together. Make a point to bring in more than one hue and be prepared to feel super spring-y every time you sit down to work.

5. Don’t Be Too Serious Spring is a time to lighten up, so let your décor reflect that change in attitude. Even if you don’t want your space to be completely spring-inspired, a piece of whimsical art could transform your office. Your interpretation of whimsy will help you choose something, but consider something as fun, colorful and easy to find as a vintage vacation poster or a floral wall decal. Year-round, you’ll look at it and smile, which is what you should be doing regardless of whether or not it’s spring.
