There’s nothing like a spring cleaning to shake off the winter doldrums and make your home feel invigorated. But why not take it a step further and give your home a fresh new look for the fresh new season?
Brighten up your mood and your decor with just a few small tweaks — — and some help from the shops and showrooms in the Dallas Design District, of course.
Change up your home’s color palette for a fresher, springier atmosphere, but don’t feel limited by light and airy pastels. Bright, bold colors pop when matched with lighter shades. Try a sunshine yellow and white, or get on trend with the Pantone 2018 Color of the year, Ultra Violet, paired with lilac and eggshell. Find your spring color inspiration from the wide selection of fabrics at Kravet.
Spring is a time of growth, so what better way to evoke a sense of renewal than by bringing a little bit of the outdoors in? Think fresh flowers in a crystal vase or a potted plant bathing in the sunlight by an open window. Even the blackest of black thumbs can maintain a collection of globe or geometric terrariums filled with low-maintenance cacti and other succulents. Check out LMB Art Glass for unique vases and bowls in which to display your new plant friends.
Sometimes all you need to get into a springtime frame of mind is a change in lighting. Spring is bright and airy, so it's important to make sure the lighting in your home isn’t bringing anyone down. Replace any dim or orangey bulbs and fixtures with bright white ones. Get more lighting advice and find one-of-a-kind lighting options at Circa20c.
No room is complete without a little accessorizing. If your furniture and floors are the cake, window dressings, pillows and other accessories are the frosting. Switch out heavy damasks with pale blues or floral patterns. Or perhaps try a pale pink valance with a Roman shade or shutters. Fold and put away heavy throws and replace them with lightweight blankets. If you’re up for it, wallpaper a room with nature-inspired designs, like cherry blossoms.

Shake off the winter and get ready to spring into the new season. With a little help from the shops in the Dallas Design District, your home will be spring-ready in no time.
