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.

Cheers!

Couple builds dream home in Walla Walla

Melissa & Mike visiting the construction site... a marvelous winter landscape! The calendar years of 2020/2021 have been one of the most challenging and unpredictable years of my life. On the other hand, they have also been one of my best professionally. The saying time flies when you are busy is true! My last blog was in November! Therefore, I am enjoying taking a break and sharing with you my pleasure in having had an opportunity to meet some wonderful new clients and catch up with existing clients. They kept me busy with consultations, renovations, new contractors and problem-solving with people working and teaching their children at home. You might think the interval during new construction won't have much of an effect on interior design, but decisions made from initial drawings and during construction have a profound effect on home decor. They set the groundwork for client satisfaction, such as this project. As the point person for a couple building their third (and fi

When a year comes to an end it is a time to reflect back and look forward.

It’s a time to wish you a very Happy New Year from Du Interiors!  No doubt we have all had a difficult and different two years with all kinds of challenges. A lot has changed for all of us. But we are still here. It’s a time for gratitude. It takes many forms. For me I am thankful that my interior design consulting business has kept me active in my creative environment.

Designing attractive spaces so that people enjoy their environments and seeing it all pulled together to create a welcoming aura is a mutually pleasing.

Details matter!

Now that the holidays are behind us but still cold, winter days ahead, wouldn’t it be nice to have a place in your home where you can relax and rejuvenate? For many, it could be your inviting spa just down the hall. Bathrooms do not have to be totally utilitarian. Adding certain elements can transform them into comfortable versions of a spa. You can create a place to rejuvenate and retreat to with the addition of details, and details matter! You can update a few elements such as the faucet, hardware, lighting and accessories that can miraculously change the look and function of your bath.   https://www.houzz.com/hznb/photos/manhattan-beach-ca-beach-style-los-angeles-phvw-vp~138004736 How much should you update? Are you in to trends? What kind of faucets and finishes could you choose? Can you mix finishes? These are questions my clients are now asking. I want to share important information with you to consider updating your bath. Let’s focus on selecting fau
