Put A Little Spring In Your Room

Spring is a great season to edit, clean, and infuse your home with new vitality. The mood changes in the spring to light and airy.

Here are a few ways to update your home for spring.

 

  • Accent chairs are an easy way to make a statement in a room. Try incorporating a pastel colour on an occasional chair with open sides for a light and airy look in the room. A sunny yellow fabric or tangerine orange will bring in that spring vibe

Spring has sprung!

Now that Winter is finally behind us, it’s time for the beautiful warm weather that we all love.

Bringing the outdoors in has been and will continue to be one of the biggest trends this season. This could be as small as giving your walls a fresh coat of Sage Green paint or you can go big by bringing in tons of plants and flowers as well as some natural finishes like Bamboo or Rattan.

Let’s talk colour palettes! This season will be all about beautiful yellows, pinks, and greens which definitely screams SPRING. And these don’t just have to be paint colours; an accent chair or ottoman in a buttery yellow or pink can really help bring that Spring feeling into your space.

Up until recently, smooth finishes in the home were desired as it brought that clean and calm vibe. Now, we’re going to see a ton of texture whether it be in artwork, wallpaper, or fabrics.

If you’re looking for a refresh this season, try out one of these new trends and watch as your space comes alive!

Minimalism or Maximalism

We are finally starting to see the light at the end of the road, after more than a couple of years, or at least it looks like we are starting to see it. This affects everything we do in our lives. Renovating our home, always reflects what we are going through and how we are feeling about it. We have been spending time in our houses more than ever, and we experienced a situation that most of us never did before.

This has brought us to the point that more or less we all need a change of scenery. We all need to live in a place where we feel calm and comfortable, peaceful and beautiful. In the past, if you had a room full of furniture, very cluttered, it was a sign of wealth. Now, and after a lot of things happening in the World, we need to recalculate and think about how are we going to go on.

Although I truly believe that Minimalism is the way to go, somehow, we need to meet somewhere in the middle, because luckily, we are all different people. We find calmness and peace in different ways. We can still unclutter our rooms, by just getting the right amount of furniture, but we can mix it with patterns and colors that each of us prefers. So we still use minimalism but with some tips from Maximalism.

Let’s Talk About Velvet

For a long time, it was synonymous with luxury and extravagance. Velvet originated in India, made on manual looms from silk fiber. Then it was also produced in Italy, where factories in Venice, Florence, Genova, and Milan gained worldwide fame. The origin of the name comes from the Latin “vellus”, which means “hair” or “tufted hair”. It is a dense weave fabric with a soft and smooth texture. In addition to natural fibers, such as silk, linen, and cotton, it can also be made from synthetic fibers or a mixture of fibers.

Partly for its history with aristocratic appeal and partly for its sophisticated look, velvet is vintage by nature. But recently, especially thanks to the development of high-performance, synthetic fabrics composed of a large amount of polyester, velvet is a material suitable for all styles and designs of furniture. Sofas, armchairs, dining chairs, whatever your imagination wants.

Marketed since the 14th century, velvet dressed European nobility, decorated their palaces, and was always related to the aristocracy. Over time, it was widely used to produce luxurious accessories and furniture. In the 20th century, a new approach to this material emerged, especially in the late 1960s and 1970s, velvet started to be seen in several environments hitherto little explored. The Hippie wave deconstructed many concepts and one of them was that velvet was necessarily linked to the aristocracy.

In addition to being beautiful, its soft appearance makes it an excellent choice for that comfortable sofa, or those pillows that will bring the coziness you are looking for to your environment. Velvet, without a doubt, is a synthesis of contemporaneity: classic, chic, comfortable and can also be super practical and easy to maintain if used in a synthetic version.

Blocking and Spacing Your Home

Blocking and spacing the rooms in your home requires an understanding of your home’s entire space, as well as an understanding of how to define the rooms in your total space.

Now that homes are being built and renovated to more open concepts, understanding how to define rooms with furnishings is more important than ever.

Furniture, carpets, lighting, and artwork can help you to define and distinguish ‘rooms’ while bringing a connectedness to open… or more open spaces.

First, remember your sightlines. -When entering a space, we humans roughly spend about 20 percent of our eye time looking down. Logically, this is to secure footing and asses a safe and comfortable pathway. This is why flow-through flooring in small and larger spaces helps provide a sense of seamlessness to any size space.

We can further define our rooms and enjoy a space defined with great lighting. From recessed-in ceiling fixtures to significant and hopefully dramatic chandelier(s) / lamp and even pendant lighting. For those in a new build or comprehensive renovation… in-floor lighting can serve to not only illuminate pathways but provide great drama in hallways and feature walls.

To furniture, whether you are in a more traditional home or an open concept home, allow for each piece to breathe….it is essential.

Clutter is a thing of the past. I suggest choosing your anchor pieces carefully. And build around them. Don’t over furnish. Get great pieces that completely compliment one another, define a space, and again … allow them to breathe.

In a more open concept realize the arm of that sofa is helping create flow and pathways. Carpets do the same.

It’s where we feel we can breathe in a comfy space, and create intimacy even in an open concept all while still allowing for a social connectedness when entertaining or in a family gathering.
