Budding flowers, green lawns, newborn wildlife — it's undeniable that springtime is a season of vibrancy. It also offers an opportunity to invite this vibrancy into your home with bright, bold decor accents. Here are our suggestions for how to spruce up your rooms with a simple pop of color.
Kitchen: Elegant Vases
Liven up your countertop with a display of these "Big Jars" by designer Elizabeth Lyons from Holly Hunt off Stemmons Freeway. Their exaggerated stoppers, oversized bases and rich colors make them fun picks for any tabletop arrangement. Mix and match the colors for a unique combination of shapes, heights and tints. Maybe even fill one with fresh flowers or assemble a terrarium inside one for an unexpected touch.
Bedroom: Peaceful Wallpaper
Unless your style is complete simplicity, the last thing you want when you head to bed is to stare at four blank, white walls. Bring a sense of serenity to your sleep space with hand-screened wallpaper in a wide variety of springtime colors from Holland and Sherry. The oceanic, almost polka dot blue of Holland & Sherry's "Grenfell" print is especially calming for a bedroom environment.
Living Room: Cheerful Curtains
Is your living room looking a little drab? Be brave and add some "AGA Reverse" linen/cotton blend fabric to the mix. Let this blend of light blue and lime green fabric from Quadrille, Inc. off Stemmons Freeway transform your windows. The fresh hues and geometric pattern are the perfect nods to spring.
Entryway: Colorful Rugs
What better way to welcome your guests than a bright and distinctove runner. Abrash Decorative Rug Gallery at 760 Dallas Design Center offers antique, decorative and original production rugs of fine, hand-chosen quality. Many of the rugs feature earthy tones in addition to bold colors and intricate patterning, suitable for both traditional and modern styles.
