Designer Tips

No need to spend a lot of time and money updating your home this Spring. Instead, follow these 5 easy tips from top designers to get started. 

Light and airy white coastal slipcover living room

1. Scan the space you want to update. This should be a quick scan of the room. Pick the first three things that bother you and use this as your strating point. This forces you to prioritize the top things to change, rather than leaving you feeling overwhelmed with an long, taxing list. This will make each room list easier to tackle.
 

2. Fresh White. Bring in white decor like a slipcover sofa or chair to freshen up the space and create the base of your coastal canvas for Spring.

3. Liven your space with new throw pillows. Coastal throw pillows can add a bright pop of color without having to commit to a color change on the walls. This can liven up a design with pattern and excitement that spring brings.

4.Keep It Airy and Light. Remove heavy drapes and replace them with sheer materials. You want the sun to shine in and fill your room with natural light.

5. Play with Punches of Yellow. Nothing sings "spring" like the color yellow. A large white bowl or tall glass vase of lemons can add instant spring style into any room. Lemons are a fresh, inexpensive style accessory that are also readily on hand for cooking! So add a pop of sunshine with yellow accents.
