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.

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.

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.

Style for the season

What do we all have in common when the weather turns cooler?

We don’t want to get out from our warm beds! But is your bedroom beginning to look tired? Now is the time to bring a little cheer to your slumber palace. If your bedroom doesn’t need it, think of your guest room(s). It doesn’t take a major investment to make some changes to create a wide awake look.
Step 1: I recommend starting with an “anchor piece” like a rug. Choose colors from warm rust, browns and beiges that are easy to find this time of year.  This tangerine rust area rug creates a cozy and inviting feel to any bedroom.

The white and charcoal grey graphic rug below works well with the warm wood and leather bench and caramel accent pillows.
A white textured rug for a crispy winter look with black and blue/green accents.
Step 2:  I recommend neutral sheets and layering your bedding with one or two accent colors. Layers are all about warm, cozy TEXTURE! I’m picturing wool, velvet (traditional and crushed) quilts, or soft nubby pi…

Affordable solutions to bring new life to your kitchen!

If you are like most women, you spend a considerable amount of time in your kitchen and like most women (and men) , a refreshing new look would lift your spirit. How do you accomplish that and not break the bank? The answer is mixing finishes.

You can incorporate black and gold to any stainless steel kitchen appliances and achieve a bolder, lived-in edge.
If you are remodeling or refreshing, cabinet pulls, light fixtures, faucets and other hardware are the easiest ways to achieve a kitchen change and experience the upbeat pleasure of new.
While oil-rubbed bronze and brass were the most recent haves, people are now experimenting with a variety of metal finishes, including champagne brass and charcoal stainless.
There are many beautiful options besides the once popular brass. I like to mix finishes, and I think my clients are comfortable with that. A client might opt for brass hardware and a different metallic color in lighting. One of my favorite finishes is mixing black or really darker bron…
