Well, despite what good old nurturing Mother Nature is doing to various parts of the country, here in Vancouver it is definitely spring.
Last weekend I did my spring planting. And I also checked out out shrubs to make sure there were little buds on their bare limbs ready to turn into leaves.
But what about inside? What’s springing up there to make us think the season has finally changed?
Cushion covers for our sofa — nice green with dots.
Plus a little round tray for setting your coffee upon (ottoman doubles as a coffee table).
To finish the look, a bowl with the same green for fresh fruit and matching linens.
What other ideas can we provide for freshening your decor?
Well, you can start small with placemats and napkins. Here’s a set from Style at Home’s website.
Those would brighten your table — and look great with your winter-white china.
To change out a whole room in one go you could paint an accent wall or follow SAH’s advice and apply a wall decal.
Centsational Girl added some coral cushions to the cool grey of her front room, then created some artwork to match!
She painted that simple botanical above the seat, and some colour-matched abstracts to pull the colour into other areas of the room.
Apartment Therapy reminds us that rain also means rainbows. In accessories.
If you’ve been living with winter for a while be sure to start your re-newal with a good spring cleaning, open the windows, bring in some greenery and celebrate.
