New Spring Home Decor

When it comes to home decor for spring, it’s all about making things bright and beautiful without being overwhelming. Soft yet cheerful pastel colors and blossoming plants are where it’s at.

Certain shades, like “millennial pink” and “melodramatic purple,” are both trendy and absolutely perfect for springtime, which means your interior decor will feel modern and updated on a variety of levels. Even one glance at Pinterest will also tell you that rustic, vintage-chic designs are still all the rage, especially among DIY-friendly campers.

Blossom and bloom.

There are few home decor ideas easier than adding some houseplants to your existing arrangement. And goodness knows come springtime, there’s a whole lot in bloom — so you don’t even have to purchase anything from the florist. You’re camping to explore the outdoors anyway, right? Just head outside and pluck… so long as you’re in a place where that’s allowed, of course!

If you’re more into the idea of a plant that’ll actually survive for a while, skip the cut flowers and try out a potted houseplant. Certain species are much happier in the low light conditions your RV’s likely to offer; here’s a post we wrote to help guide you in the right direction. (Hint: Colorful anthuriums fit the bill, and their lovely red blossoms will look perfect for springtime.)

And hey, if you’ve got a bit of a brown thumb, no worries. Artificial flowers these days look absolutely flawless — check ’em out!

Get cozy.

Sometimes, it’s truly shocking what a coat of fresh paint can do. Better yet, spring colors are soft pastels that’ll translate well to the next season — so why not try giving your RV’s kitchen cabinets a new look? After all, if you decide you don’t like it later, you can always paint over it again!

Recover your bases.

And by “bases,” we mean furniture. Reupholstering your RV’s couch or dinette set is surprisingly simple, and if you find a fun spring fabric, it’s a great way to give your interior a fresh new feel.
