Spring Decorating Tips 2014
Spring has been in full swing for a while. And by now, I hope we’ve given you a few ideas as to how to revitalize your spaces for a new season. Luckily, summer is still a ways away; there are still things to say about getting that spring feeling in our homes. And in saying that, there’s no rule about this kind of thing anyway; a spring color palette and atmosphere is a life-affirming approach that can serve you no matter what time it is.
With that in mind, here are a few visual pointers for decorating with a spring-like atmosphere in mind. Take a look!
For me, the whole point of this exercise is about the very important idea of connection. Specifically, it’s about reflecting what’s happening in nature at this time of year. In our culture, I think it’s easy to get the idea that we are not a part of nature, but just sort of plunked down in the middle of it.
When we surround ourselves with living things that grow in our yards, or with artwork and color palettes that we can find in our native surroundings, we help to bridge that gap between ourselves and our world. I think that’s the reason why we decorate in any context; to create an environment where we belong. Spring decor just makes that exercise a little bit more literal. And once again, this can be applied at any time of the year.
What visual associations do you have with the spring season?
Which specific textures, colors, themes, elements that are connected to spring do you think can best serve a space all year around?
Which ones have you worked into your own spaces to get that sense of connection to your environment?
