A New Look

A New Look

Spring is all about rebirth, renewal, and new beginnings. This makes it the perfect time to rethink your look and do something special. You could update your color with a new paint job, rearrange furniture, or even consider a home renovation.

One of the most ongoing popular trends is the farmhouse kitchen. Featuring natural tones of eggshell porcelain, tawny wood, and bursts of flowery color or greenery; this is the perfect kitchen for springtime.

Make sure to let in lots of natural light and complete the look with some cast-iron cookware and a spacious fireclay sink.

Be in Bloom

Be in Bloom

Nothing says spring like fresh flowers. Adding a few vases around the house will get you in the grilling and sunbathing mindset in no time.

But not just any flowers will do. Deep reds, whites, and forest-green foliage will cause the heaviness of winter to stick around. Bunch daisies with black-eyed Susans, tulips, and hydrangeas (if you can find them) to bring out the wildflower look that makes spring bloom.

Creative Colors

Creative Colors

You can do a lot more to add color than picking flowers. Rainbow and pastel shades are perfect for this season, and don’t be afraid to get creative—it’s time to try new things!

For an easy change, update your throw pillows or display colorful glassware in the kitchen. You could also replace artwork with more colorful pieces and add pastel soaps to the bathroom.

Bigger jobs include painting cabinets to achieve a bright and playful two-tone kitchen. Springtime pairings include off-white and sunny yellow as well as rope brown and sky blue.

Light

Light

Spring is all about color, but without light, your home will never feel like it’s come out of hibernation. If you have limited light in your home, play with mirrors to try to open up the space and maximize those natural rays.

If that doesn’t work, you can try a natural light lamp or a light therapy lamp to brighten your space.

For the super ambitious, now is the time to put in that skylight you’ve always dreamed of. Do it early to avoid the April showers and get the most out of your May flowers!

Whether your home décor dreams are big or small, spring is the time to make them come true. Try one of our tips for decorating your home and make the sunshine seem a little brighter this season.
