Decorating with Color: Spring Greens

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

With all the lush trees, flowers and plant life surrounding us during this time of year, today we’re featuring the color that encapsulates the charm of spring: green. Below we’ve shared a few ways to use the different shades of green in your home.

Cabinets

In the kitchen or in the bathroom, green is a great complement to just about every design style: farmhouse, modern, mid-century and more. Gold, muted yellow, wood materials all work with green, so you are sure to find accents and additional decor to coordinate with whatever shade of green you select.

Walls

Paint is a great way to freshen up any living space, so if you’re ready to take the plunge, paint an entire room in your favorite green hue. For added texture, you could also try green beadboard or shiplap, or find a green patterned wall paper to give your home a spring infusion.

Accents

Of course, sprinkling green around your home can also bring a cheerful look to each room. Some ideas include painting stairs, incorporating a green furniture piece or painting your doors and windows the same shade of green. Green home accents like pillows, curtains, collectibles and more will also make a spring-y impression.

Decorating with Color: Pastels

Thursday, April 12th, 2018

Pastels are fun to play with in the springtime, especially since almost every color has a pastel hue. Below we’ve featured a few ways you can incorporate soft colors into your home seasonally or permanently.

In the Kitchen

We love the look of pastels in the kitchen. You can go as drastic as painting all of your cabinets in a pastel hue, or coordinating countertop appliances in a pastel color (or multiple!). If you alike open shelving, opt for some decorative pastel dishware to display during the springtime.

Dining Room Whimsy

While we would prefer one or maybe two colors, we think these pastel dining room chairs add a fun atmosphere to the space. Even on vintage chairs, pastel yellows or blues would give any dining area a youthful cottage look.

Different Living Room Looks

For a less permanent pastel display, switch out accent pillows, curtains, throw blankets and perhaps a rug this spring with those decorated in pastels. Or, if you’re feeling like committing fully to the soft pastel look, change your furniture and be in a cheerful, spring mood all year long.

Bed and Bath

The bathroom is possibly the best room to decorate in pastels all year long. These tranquil hues – on the walls, in tiles and in the decor – are perfect for getting a spa-like feel every time you step inside. Soft colors are also great for a bedroom; because pastels aren’t very bright or bold, your bedroom can be the soothing space it should be.
