Can you believe Spring is right around the corner and it’s finally time to warm up our home interiors and add inspirational color? While adding colorful furniture to your interiors can happen year around, this is the time of the year where a renewed home feels essential.
Colorful furniture is one of the best ways to transform an entire room. Whether you choose a certain style of furniture with warm wood stains or you decide to modernize your home with clean and modern lines with a punch of color, here are a few ways to wake up your interiors with Spring vibes!
Bringing your own design style into your home with color:
Color is one of the few elements in the design world that is inexpensive, quick, and can transform a room instantly with its impact. Furniture is the perfect place to add spring color as it consumes a large portion of your room and you can mix and match subtle colors or you can use spring inspiration like these yellow and pink office furniture pieces from Artistic Designs for Living for a vibrant room.
If you prefer a more subtle approach to your furnishings then look to distinctive craftsman style furniture and decor where you'll find wood stains such as walnut, cherry, and oak stains. Mixing different eras of furniture is a great design tool that adds layers of interest to your space, such as warm mission style coffee table styles with modern lighting.
Add subtle color with illuminated fixtures:
When we think of furniture we often only consider tables and chairs, but lighting goes hand in hand with your furnishings. Not only does lighting add illumination but also it accessorizes your furniture. This Spring, consider adding subtle color with pendant lighting, floor lamps, and table lamps.
This Speckled Glass Tiffany Style Pendant Chandelier is a subtle way to bring color into your room with its multi-color speckled art glass shade in neutral colors that will blend beautifully in any decor. The speckles give it a playful aesthetic that is perfect for Spring inspiration. Everyone has a different design style so it’s nice to have a variety of options from bold color to subtle color that still sparks the eye.
Affordable ways to bring color into your furnishings:
If you're on a budget, don’t get put off by expensive furniture and decor, instead opt for affordable but colorful bed linen, throw rugs, and accent pillows to awaken your room.
Bedrooms, bathrooms, and even kitchens are the perfect rooms to infuse color with accessories that compliment your main furniture. This bedroom from Primacor Designs uses spring color in the upholstered headboard; throw blankets and Bohemian style poufs to add playful color to the room. Choose from Spring colors such as peach, poppy, tangerine orange, yellow, turquoise and even neutral tones of crisp white paired with your favorite spring colors can add a lift to your interiors.
Spring is in the air and therefore it's time to start bringing it back into your home. Whether you love bold color painted furniture or you lean more towards subtlety, there are plenty of inspiring options to choose from.
Furniture, lighting, and accessories can dig your dull Winter home out of the snow and bring it into a sunny feeling home in no time!
