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.

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

House Renovation! Those For Sale signs popping up in many neighborhoods are another sign of summer. This is the high season for selling and buying properties. While the focus usually is on the pluses of houses, let’s not forget fixer uppers that require work. The plus for these is lower selling prices leaving room for renovation, whether as an investment or as  YOUR new home . Because fixer uppers sell at lower prices you can put extra dollars into renovation ideas that attract good prices. Renovation of  your home will also get you more attractive offers if you want to move or remain in it and save on moving costs. Before making a decision on a fixer upper walk through the property before deciding to make an offer. Make sure the house is the right one to renovate for you or to sell.  There are important  fundamentals of renovation to consider. Curb Appeal First impressions are important. Revamp

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. 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
