Color, texture, edits and updates usher in spring and spring home decor ideas. The colors of spring take winter’s edge off our interiors and fashions- the mirror images of style. Pantone’s fashion color report for spring 2013 colorfully illustrates that exact point.
Home decor items in decorative and colorful choices spring up everywhere this time of year. Regardless if your seasonal update involves a major weekend color infusion paint party throwdown or a more subtle approach of the decorative throw pillow, lampshade, and decorative accent kind, inspirational and affordable ideas abound.
That’s a moiré wallcovering! Designer Jamie Drake selects a silk moiré wallcovering that not only exemplifies optimum pattern and color choice, but highlights the accessories in the always spring appropriate fuchsia. I like how the balance between feminine and masculine in this bedroom tips the scale toward perfection.
Hydrangeas in full bloom housed in a porcelain pitcher or galvanized metal bucket never fail to take my thoughts back in time to Saturdays spent at my grandmother’s antique shop.
A bouquet of hydrangeas sitting atop an oak server, walnut dining table, or mahogany parlor table brings out the natural beauty of the flower and the furniture.
How spring does love the classic and timeless color combination of pink and green!
The Featured Designer room at Lee Jofa in New York City features the color inspired brilliance of Nick Olsen. The Cheshire Tight Back chair is upholstered in Lee Jofa Ayla Trellis in fuchsia red. Bold colors in big doses too much for your tastes? My advice for that is to practice the ABC’s of impact- Adjust Big Color. A seasonal splash of color through spot accessories can achieve just as big of an impact as color drenching the entire space. Big and colorful things do come in small packages.
