Choosing the Right Color Palette
If you already have a set color palette in your home, integrating new colors can be a challenge. Choosing muted pastels, mixed with natural and neutral colors, can offer a fresh feel to a room without overwhelming or colliding with the existing colors.
Less is more. Introducing new colors for a season or holiday doesn’t have to be a total room makeover. A few pillows, a throw, and smaller elements like a vase can bring the desired effect.
Adding Textures & Patterns
Adding textures and patterns to your design can make the space visually interesting while creating depth and dimension. For spring, this is a perfect time to add florals and stripes. Toned-down versions can create a more neutral or even masculine space.
Bringing in parts of natural and organic elements like stone and wood to intermix with flowers and pastels is a great way to balance the pop of color and add texture. Look at wooden or concrete vases, natural branches, or driftwood.
Fresh Flowers & Blossoms
A vase of fresh flowers is always a nice touch. The colors can offer a new splash, while the fragrance can create feelings of happiness and relaxation. A centerpiece on a kitchen table, island, or dining table provides a wonderful way to set the tone for the meal. Be sure to keep the height below eye level and remove dying or dead flowers from the bouquet to maintain a fresh feeling. Smaller bouquets can be sprinkled throughout the house, like on coffee tables, bathroom vanities, and nightstands.
Think beyond the vase. A wreath using colorful flowers can be a welcome beacon to the season and to those who grace the doorstep.
Dishing Up the Holiday
If you’re not concerned with changing anything in the rest of the home, creating a festive space can be easily accomplished in the kitchen and dining room.
Introducing an Easter color palette can be done with new chargers, placemats, or dishes. Choosing a palette for the spring can range anywhere from greens and creams to muted pastels. Cloth or paper napkins in stripes or florals can add visual dimension and a festive flair.
Pastel Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies, and green grass will add to any table or countertop decorations.
