St. Patrick’s Day is upon us, which means so much more than guzzling down lots of green beer! It means spring is here too-we’re going to be ‘springing forward’ this weekend too, with the time change, and all of this together also indicates it’s time to start putting away the heavy winter décor, and usher in a lighter, brighter interior design.
Whatever your inspiration may be, it’s good to find one thing that makes you feel good; something that stirs emotion or draws you. This becomes the anchor for the rest of your home design. For this week’s purpose, due to the upcoming holiday, we’re going to use St. Patrick’s Day to inspire you towards a fresh new design!
Velvety, heavy drapes look great, and make your home feel cozy in the winter months, but those heavy, dark drapes hold the warmth in and are too much for a warm spring. Replace the drapes with a lighter, sheer fabric, or bring in some color-sage is a relaxing color that works well with multiple design colors.
Many of us use textiles that switch out every season-this gives our homes a feel that matches what’s going on at the moment without a major design overhaul. If you’ve covered your sofas with wool or fur throws, maybe velvet or dark pillows, it’s time to switch them up! Replace them with pillows in shades of turquoise, or a muted lime. These colors are very in right now, and continue to use St. Patrick’s Day as inspiration!
When a person walks in to your house, the first thing they see is what you have in your entryway. This is the first impression and a great place to start with making a great statement! Add plants, flowers, update colors, switch out paintings, whatever it may be, use this area to freshen the accessories and set the tone for the rest of the house.
Naturally, as the warm weather arrives, so do our plans to remodel! Start planning your renovation project by taking some time to decide what kind of flooring you want in your home. Invest in new colors, update the look of your room, and make an appointment with one of our designers. We can take whatever your inspiration is, whether it’s a holiday like St. Patrick’s Day, your favorite cup, or your favorite designer, and make it something that is truly yours!
