Spring Home Refresh!

Du interiors

Beauty comes in many forms, and there is no better place to celebrate it …and your life…than the place you call home.
Especially Spring, because this season is all about renewal and rejuvenation as your eyes drink in the rainbow of colors you see blossoming all around you. Our senses are aroused by escaping from grey, cloudy days. Windows and doors are opened to inhale the sweet smell of Spring days.
Here I am offering ideas for you to bring in to your home to welcome one of our favorite seasons.

COLOR ME SPRING
My favorite Spring palette combines white, camel (chairs below), and soft pink or blush. They are fresh, striking – and unquestionably in season. They also provide some warmth without going too over the top, if pastel colors are not your favorites.

Another idea is using all-white to brighten your home for Spring. If you don’t wish to go all-hog, choose sheer, white curtains that welcome in the sun such as white linens and add fresh houseplants.

furniture is fun and is appropriate all year round. Its tropical energy is inviting for Spring and gives a room a vacation vibe.

You may wish to introduce bright blue, Pantone’s Color of the Year into your rooms. It blends well with greens, those wonderful shades of the great outdoors. Both shades work well as accents in dark tones, as a pop of color in pillows or in a rug, or as a statement sofa in your home.

Coral is vibrant and energizing…I call it a happy color no matter where you place it. It becomes a statement as coral wallpaper in small spaces such as your mudroom, bath, office or laundry, or as an accent color on your bedroom.

Yellow is the cheeriest color of them all. Place it in small doses, though. For example, as a centerpiece or in accent pillows or throw blankets.

ARTWORK & PILLOWS
An inexpensive spring update is incorporating a seasonal color from your large-scale art or area rug to give the room flexibility and versatility by changing colors each time of year.
In your home office you can create springtime cheer with pretty flowers, choosing colors that are in your wall art.

Bring floral arrangements to life with artwork, like the photo in this du interiors-Master Bedroom.

If delicate little floral prints are not your thing but you love fun plants, the banana leaf pillow echoes the mint green hues of Spring.

LANDSCAPE
Experimenting with seasonal design trends every few months could be too time-consuming or  exhausting for you.  Focus on landscaping. Flowers peeking through the window channel Spring.

KITCHEN ART
Don’t neglect your kitchen! You spend a lot of time in this room.  Hang art or use open shelves to display items that show off your personality and your love for the new season.

For those of you who prefer masculine colors like navy, saddle brown or hunter green, they can also be brightened up for Spring. Blend them with white or sand shades and a collection of indoor plants.

Most of all, relax and enjoy this most colorful season.

The laid-back life...

Image credit: Colin Poole This summer looks to be like no other as people return to a new normal for the season. With our usual activities limited because of the virus pandemic, our futures uncertain, we are more in need of a peaceful oasis than ever.

Accessories …your home’s jewels

When we dress our selves, often the last touch is a necklace, or earrings, or some other adornment. Think of accessories as the finishing touches for the rooms in your home. They can be elegant, whimsical, humorous or artistic. But without these interior objects, a room can look like a plain Jane. The challenge with accessories is their placement. If used without the ‘eye’ and skill of an interior designer, accessories become just “things”.  Instead of careful staging by a professional, they become clutter. They don’t add any attraction to a room’s overall effect. You could be talented in finding interesting accessories, but without the addition of careful placement, they add nothing to the overall look. Here are examples of the magic that happens when you put the right accessory in the right place at the right angle. The effect is surprising. Centering oversize art above furniture is okay but if you want to create a visual impact I recommend off centering as shown here wit
