The last time we shared a few design tips, there was snow of the ground and we were dreaming of sunnier skies! March had us ready to bring Spring inside early, while the Winter followed its own plans and lingered for what seemed like an eternity.
Now that April has arrived with some warmer temperatures, sunny skies and the infamous Kittitas Valley wind, we’re sharing some great ways to embrace the Spring season with fresh elements and beautiful colors.
When I think about Spring, my mind immediately gravitates to thoughts of starting fresh, plants transforming back to life, and Trending in 2019, sustainability and re purposed products are at the forefront of many department store displays and remain a hot topic in design blogs across the web. Even those who don’t consider themselves “trend followers” when it comes to their décor or furniture options might be able to get on board with this one. Whether you opt for a re-purposed coffee table or a bedroom set made from reclaimed wood; pieces that are given second chances at life add some character, charm and are a great conversation starters at your Spring bbqs or brunches.
Dreaming of fresh ocean air, a sandy coastline and brilliant blue skies? Consider nautical striped looks that can take your mind to the beach without having to leave your living room. A slightly retro look in nature, a nautical beachy fabric made with different textures and patterns can be the perfect way to add some coastal spring vibes to your space!
It’s no secret that paint is a great way to change a space without breaking the bank or making a long term investment. Paint can be updated or added to with ease, and the prefect color or pattern can instantly lift a mood or change how we feel in a room. Spring is a great season to freshen your interior with a splash of color, exciting new pattern or even experiment with a bold wallpaper.

When it comes to color and paint, there are many options for making a Spring statement, and if bright just isn’t your style, they don’t have to include yellow ceilings or bold walls!
Neutral colors like creams and whites pair well with bright accents. An orange or yellow chair, throw or poof can bring a sunny vibe without being over the top. A vibrant green picture frame or contrasting trim may bring just enough forest or the tropical feelings to the room without overwhelming.
Bring it in
Though we’ve talked about natural elements in home furnishings before, spring is an excellent time to try something earthy and new. For many of us, nothing feels better than the fresh air at the top of our hiking trail or looks more beautiful than the curves of a knotted pine tree. A live edge table or bedroom set may be just what you need to bring that feeling of crisp air indoors.
Dreaming of lake lounging? Pair a natural accent with a deep blue wall or sofa, and imagine yourself lakeside all year long.
Even upholstered pieces featuring foliage based prints are great small additions to your spring centered design.
