There are some pretty basic and easy things we all can do to ‘Spring-ify’ our homes without spending a fortune. Each room can be lightened up-with or without painting! However, there are some minimal things we can do to add just the right touch of a bright, pastel or even a neutral Spring colour.
The best way to see Spring in your home is with the gorgeous decorator colours that are available right now! Dazzling and soft Spring hues can be introduced in the form of runners,toss cushions, wall hangings and pictures, colourful flowers,a lighter, and/or a brighter duvet cover or quilt on the beds.These simple additions alone will make all the difference to the feel of the room as well as your mood. And it’s not as though the previous pictures and cushions will be thrown out-they will simply be retired and stored until the fall or winter season arrives again.For a true decorator/home fashion enthusiast, it’s just a switch for the Season like changing from your Winter clothes to your Summer clothes.
Think this Season’s colours and choose your favourites. Pantone- a corporation that is basically the colour authority- has come up with some wonderful colours for Spring 2016 that you can use to decorate for Spring or for the entire year. And if you are going to add a new and fresh coat of paint there’s some marvellous ones from which to choose.Two of my personal faves are the bright green and yellow. Top Spring 2016 colours according to Pantone are Buttercup yellow, Fiesta (bright tomato red), Green Flash (an impossibly bright lime green), Iced Coffee(a soft but rich brown with a pink hint), Lilac Gray, Limpet Blue (a medium blue with a hint of turquoise), Peace Echo- a muted clay- Rose Quartz, Serenity Blue, Snorkel Blue- a deeper, almost royal blue shade.
There will be a particular tone in Pantone’s lineup that you will easily be able to work into your decor. Choose one, or even two for each room or work with 2 or three in several rooms.
