Spring Renewal

Now that the days are starting to get longer and warmer, there is a collective feeling of renewal and change. This spring in particular is different, as we’ve collectively been cooped up in our houses for what seems like an eternity. Below are a list of quick and easy tips to help rejuvenate any space.

1. Bring nature indoors

Incorporating plants can add serenity and a natural color scheme to your space. In this sunny living room designed by Katherine Crosby of Jenkins Baer, a vibrant fig tree and a vase of fresh blooms play off Jeff Erickson’s light and airy composition.

2. Add a pop of color

Adding a fresh coat of paint can not only transform a space, but also change the dynamic of the artwork displayed. Don’t be afraid to go bold and paint the entire room – from crown to baseboard. The saturated blue hue below plays perfectly with a series of pieces by Amy Van Winkle.

3. Layer with prints 

Layering patterned textiles in your space can give it depth and visual interest. The bold black and white couch in this entryway designed by Stephanie Bradshaw highlights the line work in Beatriz Simon’s abstract painting.

4. Pair with a sculpture

Give your space a third dimension by displaying a sculpture that can be viewed from different angles. Featured in Elle Decor, this industrial Baltimore loft designed by Laura Hodges incorporates the natural aesthetic of Sheila Ganch’s Statuesquealong with other pieces, to speak to her client’s personality.
