Although Mother Nature has a funny way of welcoming Spring on this snowy day, here are some designer tips from Realtor.com to help make your home ready!
“Was that a flower bud you saw when you left the house for work this morning? A yellow tulip daring to grow? Is it—no way—actually, finally spring?
If your living room is still full of the furry pillows and emerald velvet throws that felt so glam yet cozy in the winter months, then get your act together and dress your home for the new season!
Spring is all about rebirth. About letting the sunlight back in. About trying something new. Now’s your chance to do something drastic in just a few small steps. Create a space that screams “spring” with these 10 easy designer tips.
1. Pack up dark tones and try new colors
“When we start seeing more sunlight, I pack up the dark tones and heavy accessories and rearrange everything to increase openness and air circulation,” says Jennifer Adams, an interior designer from Scottsdale, AZ.
Swap in lighter or neutral tones to give your home an open, airy feel. Spring is a great time to bring new colors into your home, especially if you’ve already got white or neutral walls. Adams recommends trying “fresh colors” such as mints, lighter greens, blush pinks, and grays. Combine colors with warm metals (think rose and antique golds) to create a cozy, fresh space.
