FRESH FINISHING TOUCHES

FRESH FINISHING TOUCHES

Here we are a day before spring begins. We have had some nice sunny but cold days. As everyone starts to get excited for the nice weather they also start to think about changes they can make inside and outside their home. Some of the easiest things to do are to freshen up with the new colors that are in the stores. If you have a fairly neutral background in your upholstered pieces it makes it easy to change out items like pillows and throws. If you have an area rug try and pull out a color that you haven’t used before and now that can become a new accent color. Artwork is harder to change out but if you can find a safe storage space then go ahead and hang a new piece using those same colors. Here are a few pieces to inspire you. In this article I have used orange and turquoise, two fresh colors we are seeing a lot of this year. I love these pillows as they add a pop of color and sometimes both or several colors are used. Then try laying a soft textural throw over the arm or your sofa or chair. Throws can be a solid color or have variations of color. Then add some fun colorful accessories in your favorite new color! A lot are available in the spring. Try placing them on books or boxes. Use some humor to lighten things up for the season. If your carpet is neutral like this one you can layer a smaller rug over top. This canvas artwork displays lots of color and is a fresh botanical for the spring/summer weather. Just store away when the season changes this fall and take out your cozy colors and you have a new look again. Have fun!
