Give your home a spring refresh

If you think spring cleaning is just about vacuuming and dusting, think again.  As we say goodbye to the colder months, we get the urge to declutter and revitalize our spaces. Incorporating spring decor into your home signifies new beginnings, fresh starts and cheerful days ahead.  As we celebrate spring’s arrival, here’s what we’re seeing at market, on social media and, of course, in real life: 


Artwork, in general, tells a story. Spring-inspired art tends to bring excitement and happiness to the home, as it signifies good memories and positive changes. 


Every time I see a blush interior, I feel like dancing. It fuels my appreciation for femininity and sophistication. Add a few blush accent pillows and several decorative pieces to your living room, and you’ll feel spring come to life. 



Metallic used to be all the rage. This spring, it is the exact opposite. You’ll see a lot of chalk-finish paints, matte glazes and oxidized metals. The best news? Matte-finish decor looks amazing next to metallic objects, so hang on to all those luxe gold and copper items you kept from years past. 



We are seeing a resurgence of patterns in interior décor. Floral patterns are on the rise this spring, and I am loving every minute of it! Don’t be afraid to mix patterns.



If there’s one big thing we can highlight about spring, it’s flowers. A fresh flower arrangement in your home is an instant mood booster, and research says it alleviates stress. Plus, it’s a great way to make your home smell lovely. 




Indoor plants and trees can change the whole mood and look of your home while bringing nature inside to create a warm, inviting space. Multiple types of research show that having indoor plants purifies the air and can help reduce allergens. 



Neutral colors provide an earthy energy and introduce a sense of nature. The pandemic has influenced décor trends, and warm neutral colors make us feel safe, cozy and in tune with nature. 




Minimalism is here to stay. Timeless black and white is limitlessly reimagined. While bright chevron patterns were huge a few years ago, we’ve noticed less elaborate palettes replacing the bright and bold. In fact, the prevalence of black-and-white decor has increased 40 percent on Pinterest since last year. 

While this contrasting duo has never gone out of style, there’s an increased interest in ways to style black and white — from strong, bold stripes that make a statement to minimalistic grays and muted patterns that are perfect for layering. The combo adds a dramatic component to any space. You can easily pair it with a wide range of accent colors. Also expect to see a lot of mixing of gray, greige and beige.
