With hopefully the coronavirus behind us, I am so excited by the promise of Spring. A friend had to stage a mini intervention when she saw the rainbow of bright and pastel colors she had viewed at a local paint store. Spring is the season for sprucing up the home! April showers not only bring May flowers, but also May showers. Baby showers, wedding showers, graduation parties, Mother’s Day gatherings, and a host of other events all lend themselves to welcoming visitors to your home.
It’s easy to see why you have been bitten by the color bug. The market trends for spring are beautiful blues in every spectrum, designed to tempt us all. Take a deep breath, relax, and accessorize. Visualize the room you are working on as a blank canvas. If you have a neutral background, such as neutral colored walls, floors, and large furniture pieces that are neutral in color, you can have a field day adding bursts of color using quality accessories, like bright throw pillows and area rugs. New lighting is another wonderful way to light up your room in both color and function.
Next, select some artwork that makes your space unique. We represent many local artists at our design center, and I can think of no better way to add color and personality to your room. Original art is a great conversation starter when you have a bevy of guests in your home. Bring the outdoors in with a colorful sculpture that reflects nature. This year has been a great year, so far, for our designer pillows. We buy them and they sell almost as quickly as we get them in. Every color of the spectrum can be used with pillows. Pillows are a great way to change out a room quickly. For me, I just did that in my own house. I love pillows and lamps, for those of you that don’t know. That brings another subject to mind, lamps. New lamps can update your home just as quickly. If you are up for it, painting your home brings a fresh look as well. Going lighter is the trend. We are the trending design firm in the area and keep up with what is coming. We like to stay ahead of the curve.
If any of your guests are spending the night, keep a throw blanket at the foot of their bed for extra color and cover. Our Bella Notte bedding has some of the greatest throws for all of your rooms. They have great colors and great quality. We have other brands as well to select from. I don’t know about you, but I am so glad to see Spring and Summer finally arriving. May is a blessed month and the month that my first granddaughter is to be born. I can’t wait and I’m beside myself. I know a lot of my customers love reading Dear June and what better place than Dear June than to make this announcement.
We love hearing about your projects.
Happy Spring and Summer,
