Spring decor


It's hard to believe it is already March 1st and the weather has been excellent, it's really starting to feel like spring!! A great way to celebrate the season is through decor. There are some key ideas to spring decorating and some trends.

The main principle of spring decor is to lighten up. Traditionally, homes used to have winter drapes, rugs and pillows and that is starting to happen more commonly again. When we talk about lightening up, it's not just colour but fabric too. Heavy wool and tweed are reminiscent of winter and fall, so change them up with silk and cotton. But lighter colours are important too. You will start seeing more yellow, green and robin's egg blue in stores. Cream and white are classics and season appropriate too.

Other key ideas for spring decor - bring the outdoors in! Flowers such as dogwood and lilies are perfect for front entry or dining centrepiece. Also small furniture items or decor pieces that look like they belong in the garden are great inside too. Try a sisal area rug for your space, this adds some natural material to the room and spring is a celebration of nature!

The trends for spring that we are seeing everywhere are birds! Bird fabrics, bird sculptures and artwork. You do not have to spend a lot of money but check out the following stores for some cute bird decor pieces http://www.potterybarn.com/ for some chic bird pillows in great spring colours, also some adorable bird cage napkin rings, nest inspired bowls and candle holders, decorative eggs, wall art and candles. Just don't get too carried way with the theme!

Also try http://www.ikea.ca/ for rattan chargers for a place setting. Again, it has the bird's nest feel and adds some texture to your table. http://www.bouclair.com/ is a great place to find branches and florals at a great price point, they also have some very cute and shiny bird sculptures.

Add some colour (season inspired , of course) to your home with pillows, throws, dishes, flowers, candles and place mats.

Bringing spring inside your home will really make you feel cozy but also make you feel like enjoying the new season ahead.
