IDEAS AND INSPIRATION: Ready, Set...Renew!

"Here's an idea for a blog post: How to update your home for Spring. I am currently looking for this -- pack up the fur throw and bring in more plants. Open up your shades. Get fresh throw pillows. Rearrange furniture to face a window or be more open to the outdoors. Switch out heavy embroidered rugs for natural or light-colored ones. Have fresh flowers." - Savvy Client

Perhaps you are like our dear client, eagerly searching for inspiration on ways to lighten, brighten and reenergize your space for Spring. We understand, and as is our policy - ask and you shall receive!

We have pored over Pinterest board after Pinterest board, carefully curating the coolest and chicest ways to usher in the new season. Take a moment to enjoy these fresh ideas (stop and view the roses, as it were) then go out and buy a bunch, because Spring has indeed arrived, and it's time to, once again, "ready", set and renew your abode!

Peonies are my favorite flower, they never disappoint - but, these books also add great color. Set bright bindings about for a little lift.

You don't have to run out and buy a pink sofa (although I'm considering it), but toss pillows with color, texture and pattern are definitely good things to change with the seasons.

Don't neglect your walls. Artwork sounds like a huge investment, but it doesn't have to be. Make your own art! I'm doing that very thing right now (stay tuned for a future blog post).

Easy, breezy, beauti...oh wait, that's something else. Still, white sheers on your windows create a sense of ease, breeze and beauty. Don't cover, girl!

Alright, play this little game I enjoy: place one thumb over the fuschia flowers and one over the pink embroidered pillow. What's left? Not a lot of color, right? A small amount can pack a powerful punch.

So, I'm not a hundred percent sure if the flowers in the foreground of this image are supposed to be doing this, but look at how the floor lamp in the background mimics their shape and color. Coincidence? No idea, but the point is the same - even if those orchids have met their demise and will consequently be tossed, that lamp still references nature and just feels like Spring.

Turn your focus to the outdoors - all the decorating is done for you! Your doors and windows are like built-in picture frames. Free art - even better than cheap art!

I just like this room. Maybe it's that tiny bull on the console that's buying me. But, bull or no bull, it's rather cool.
