Feb 21, 2014 antique, antiques , , , , , , , 0 Comments


springevo1We are ready for spring! It has been a long, cold, snowy winter and we cannot help but start dreaming of spring. Especially with the warmer weather we have been experiencing the past couple of days! It is a welcome treat, for sure!

Naturally thoughts of spring get us thinking about how to decorate our homes for the season. Spring is a great time to bring in pops of color, fresh blooms, new furniture, lighter drapes & curtains – there are so many ideas. We’ll list a few for you below and be sure to check out our Pinterest board for lots more ideas!

Pops of Color
Bright pillows, new drapes – this is the time of year to add some fresh colors to your home. Yellows, greens, pinks, purples, blues – all colors the colors of the season and they look fabulous. Especially when the trees start to blossom again, throw the windows open and let the season brighten up your home. Vintage glassware like the ones pictured above are a great way to add color to a room, line them up along a mantel or window.

Decorate with Blooms
We have to wait a little longer before nature begins to give us a colorful show of blossoms & blooms – but artificial ones can do the trick for now. Let’s say you add a bright yellow pillow or throw to your sofa – make a big impact by sticking some yellow daffodils in a pretty glass vase on your coffee table – the coordinating hues will bring a lovely dynamic to your room. The turquoise vase pictured above would look lovely with a bloom in it, and the peacock tray could really tie the look together.

Rustic & Shabby Looks
Something about spring seems so right for the shabbier & rustic pieces. A chippy-paint door with chalkboard paint seems so fitting for the season. Find one in our store this week!

Modern & Clean Lines
You know we are fans of mixing textures and styles – layering shabby pieces with clean modern pieces makes a room look interesting. Try a mid century modern chair at a vintage desk with chippy paint, the two styles coordinate quite well.
