Freshen up the bed linens when you start the transition from closed-in homes during locked-down Winter towards a brighter and warmer Spring season.
Just as busy as the birds and the bees outside as they make their nests and stock their hives, the bedroom décor comes alive with all the vibrance of Springtime colors and activity just by switching up the bedding color scheme.
Put away those woolly warm quilts and darker toned blankets and place the lighter and happier motifs of Spring front and center on the largest piece of furniture in the room, the bed.
Beautiful flowering blossoms outside the window can be drawn into the room by way of lively and colorful patterned sheet sets and duvet covers in florals, or prints with birds and bees, or all three. The bigger and bolder the better; pick an over-sized Japanese chrysanthemum print on a cool mint green background with all the typical Springtime elements, like birds on branches, bees gathering pollen from plump pink and yellow buds and cherry blossoms swaying in the breeze.
Or take a traditional Regency boudoir stripe like this pale pink and deep rose ones that are in alternating widths, punctuated with delicate ruby-breasted hummingbirds in a vertical repeat pattern, perfect for blankets and throws.
If country or farmhouse style is your desire, these gossamer-winged bumblebees encircled with wreaths of wildflower leaves in an off-beat colorway of cornflower blue or celery green look at home with distressed woods and other cottage paint-effects used in rustic or shabby chic décor.
Hand-painted watercolor prints of rose blossoms or bluebells on branches are another timeless and classic pattern for sheets and pillowcases. The dark moss green and bark brown of its leaves and stems pair nicely with these patterns and are sure to make the next transition if you change the color scheme later into the Fall season.
