Spring is in the air! We emerge from our Winter blues ready to open up the windows, drink in the sunshine and clean up our indoor and outdoor living spaces. It presents the perfect opportunity to take inventory of what we want to declutter and what we may want to refresh for the Season. To ensure your living space is ready for springtime festivities and affairs, we suggest five ways you can transition your home’s interior from winter to spring using modern luxury décor.
After a long Winter, there’s something that feels so fresh and rewarding about cleaning and decluttering our home. In fact, according to the American Cleaning Institute®, “91 percent of Americans and 96 percent of millennials engage in spring cleaning, with 76 percent of the population participating each year. Six percent of the population never spring clean.” Begin with a good power wash of your garage and outside patios. Deep clean baseboards, light fixtures and inside of kitchen cabinets. And we can’t forget the refrigerator! Take this opportunity to sort through paperwork and built up clutter. Perhaps even donate mismatched glassware or throw pillows that might need a new home. Now that you have established new order and a refreshed space, you can consider a few decorating projects. Perhaps, paint a bathroom or the front door for a whole new mood.
Incorporating Spring hues into your design strategy, is an easy way to refresh any space. Bring the outdoors in with colors that reflect the beautiful regrowth of our landscape or colors of a blooming garden. Try a cool hyacinth lavender or a soft moss green. For energy, the bright pink of a peony will make a space pop. Nature offers ample choices in which to choose, from the subtle and subdued to the cheerful and bold. We love adding these Spring colors in simple accessories such as a table lamp or a vase. Or swap out throw pillows in a fun new pattern and hue or accessorize an outdoor space with colorful ceramic planters.
Of course, you can’t set a spring-inspired scene without a floral arrangement. No matter the type of greenery you showcase in your home, we believe flowers and plants make a huge difference in how your living space looks and feels. Fill one of your new pastel vases with a lilies, tulips and hydrengas. These blooming florals are ubiquitous with Spring and are sure to make your home feel inviting. If you aren’t a gardening enthusiast, using faux florals. Faux Florals have come a long way since the plastics of years past. These stunning and truly natural arrangements are perfect for a low maintenance but gorgeous addition to any room year around.
In the Winter months, we generally associate with fabrics that are cozy and warm, such as flannels, rich velvets and even faux fur. However, when spring and summer finally arrive we are ready to lighten up with airy cool cottons and breezy linens. Swapping out fabrics can be as simple as replacing the coverings on your throw pillows from dark navies and deep reds to vibrant yellow or coral. For a fun design trend, try one of our decorative patterns such as a tribal ikat or an Asian chinoiserie. Whether you have a budget that allows for a more formal change such as reupholstering a chair or as simple as adding a beautiful cotton throw to a sofa, incorporating a fresh fabric will make your space feel lighter!
In addition to natural woods, think organic materials such as; woven rattans, jute, sea grass and wicker. Layering in these earthen elements will not just add warmth to the space, but also texture to existing smooth surfaces and soft fabrics. A favorite trend on the design scene this Season is the Arteriors wicker pendant collection. Modern and sophisticated, these handwoven rattan pendants look gorgeous in a sunlight salrium, a bohemian office or even an outdoor patio. You'll have an elegant spring sanctuary year around.
