Freshen up your space

As we head into the lighter, mild spring months, many people look to refresh their home’s appearance. While my job is to take rooms down to studs and redesign entire spaces, that isn’t feasible every year. The good news: there are simple ways to update your home that don’t call for an entire remodel.

Shifts in style

The 2010s and 2020s have arguably been the era of the modern farmhouse. We’re now seeing a shift to a more sophisticated twist on this trend, with global styles such as European farmhouse, Scandi and Japandi. Many of these styles pull in warmer tones of gold, bronze or brass fixtures instead of chrome or matte black, and browns and taupe instead of grays and whites. Look for vases and wall hangings in these warm colors for a low-cost refresh.

Bring in the odd and old

In addition to warmer colors and finishes being a new staple in interiors, we’re also seeing an increase in repurposed items and furnishings. Many people are flocking to estate sales, thrift stores and flea markets in search of that well-loved but still fabulous piece to incorporate into their homes. These venues often turn up some of the best one-of-a-kind finds, and I love the incorporation of timeless and even peculiar pieces.

Soft season

If spring cleaning doesn’t quite scratch the itch you’ve got to refresh your space, look into making small changes such as replacing soft items such as bedding, linens, towels, throw pillows and other little things that make your house a home. These items are an easy way to revitalize a space revitalize a space without breaking the bank.

Bring the green in

In spring we see so many beautiful flowers and plants in the valley. My personal favorite way to bring a

new feeling or look into a space is incorporating plants, planters, or even a fresh bouquet of flowers. Many nurseries have spring sales, flower farms are open to the public, and farmer’s markets get us back into the swing of things around this time of year. If you’re looking to liven up your space, drop by a local shop and bring some greenery home.
