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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If you are ready to try something new, consider the following: Matte Black & Grey Finishes. via houzz Kitchen Sink --   What’s “in” now is concrete, stone, copper and granite composite sinks in darker hues of gray, bronze or black. (see picture above) Last year , satin brass made its debut in kitchens and that trend continues in other interior spaces. This finish looks amazing against almost any color and when mixed with other finishes creates an eclectic look. In 2018, look for matte black in baths as well. If you are looking for a statement-making look that is both contemporary and complementary with a variety of materials and styles, embrace this versatile finish. Brass -

Useful ideas on choosing a bookcase

Du interiors  Bookcases can be classical, fanciful, functional and personal …they really add to the anatomy of a room. They display your favorite reads as well as framed memories. There are so many options on deciding on the best for your nest. Here are important considerations. What Size Should Your Bookcase Be? The most basic consideration is size. How much space do you have in the room you have in mind? If space is ample, wide bookcases that measure several feet across are a good design idea. However, if room is small, go up! Taller bookcases work in space limitations, if you plan on placing a lot on them. Otherwise, one or more small bookcases would work.  Measure the room before you shop.

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