If you’re always on the lookout for fresh decorating ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
Spring is a time of renewal. It’s the season of fresh scents and a lightness of being. This year, we look to nature for our interior design inspiration. Whether you’re in the mood for a full home makeover or some creative ideas for a quick refresher, you’re sure to find plenty of inspiration at Utah’s Guild Hall.
Incorporate This Year’s Freshest Colors
This year’s color trends all give a fond nod to springtime, but they will look stunning in your home all year long.
Ocean blue is fresh and vibrant, and a delightful way to brighten up your master suite or guest bedroom. If you’re wary of bright colors, add them in small quantities. For example, choose a duvet cover and toss pillows with splashes of color, rather than solids. Brightly colored accent pieces such as picture frames or vases won’t overwhelm your neutral sensibilities.
Combine apple green with white for a calming, natural feel. This color combination lends itself especially well to the kitchen, where it will work with almost any design style. Use it for upholstered kitchen counter stools, pendant lighting or a kicky set of new canisters.
Designers are also combining dusky shades of pale blues and greens together this year. This pairing brings to mind summers spent at the lake or on the Cape. Add nautical accents and tufted seating to complete this calm, refreshing look.
Going Green Means More than Color
Eco-friendly home furnishing and décor trends continue to gain popularity. Fortunately, you won’t have to compromise your sense of style to adopt a few of these yourself.
Choose new furniture pieces made by manufacturers that endorse a sustainable approach. Or choose environmentally friendly materials such as bamboo or jute. Buying local is always a great way to be kind to the environment, as it reduces pollution from shipping and keeps your money in the local economy.
When you decide to replace your furnishings and accessories, recycle the old pieces or donate them to a worthy cause, rather than contributing to the landfill crisis.
The Artist’s Way
This spring, celebrate artisanal and handcrafted design.
Adding even a single piece of artisanal furniture, accessory or lighting can create a focal point for your space, inspiring conversation and intrigue. Or select a photograph, sculpture or painting from a local artist whose style you love.
Not only are you supporting a working local artisan, but imagine the value you’ll have on your hands if he or she becomes famous some day in the future!
