5 Essential Products for Spring 2014

Pretty Spring Room

Spring has definitely sprung, and we’ve collected a variety of Spring home essentials that we think will really get your home in shape for the warmer months. It’s time to take off the heavy throws and velvet pillows to lighten and brighten your home, just like this pretty room photo using bright pinks and spring greens in combination with crisp white from http://www.turnstyleconsign.com/.

Doesn’t this inspire you to get busy inside before the weather is so nice that you head outdoors and leave your winter decorating duldrums intact? Well, just a few perky additions will get your home in shape for both Spring and Summer with lighter and fresher colors, linen and cotton fabrics, and patterns that say “It’s warm outside!”

Check out these great products from amazon.com. But hurry, they won’t last!

Spring Products 1Start with interchangeable lamp shade covers that simply zip on! I love this idea.  Just begin with a starter kit that includes a linen shade to fit your lamp, and then change out the covers! I think once you have the first kit in your home, you could copy the cover and make dozens to fit your own style!

Check out current pricing and fabric covers for this cool Lamp Shade Kit.

Spring Products 2These beautiful botanical placemats are called “hardboard” because they have a cork backing and are wiped with a damp cloth for cleaning. They will liven up any dining area and have matching coasters available as well.  They come as a set of two.

Look at the details of these gorgeous Botanical Hardboard Placemats.

Spring Products 3These canvas pillow covers go right from Spring to Summer and will keep your room seasonally fresh for months! This same cover comes in navy blue too.

Check out the size and price of these great Decorative Canvas Throw Pillow Covers.

Spring Products 4I have a project sheet for making your own linings for baskets, but when you can purchase both the baskets and the liners so reasonably, why not?  Then, make several liners for the holidays or your décor when you have the time!

Read about the sizes and price of this Lined Bamboo Storage Basket Set.

Spring Products 5If you are looking for something to brighten up a bedroom, start with the bed.  It is the best place to add color, bring in a fresh new pattern, and basically update the entire room. This coverlet has shams and an accent pillow to go with it.

Check out the details of this Mizone Tamil Coverlet Set.

Don’t forget that fresh flowers can really be a room changer because aside from color and texture, they offer scent as well, and fresh flowers generally smell very nice.

If you are daring and really want to make a change, check out our recent article on The Best Interior Paint Colors for your Home.  You may find a nice color in the palette to lighten up a couple spaces.  My personal Spring favorites are Pink Cloud, Napery, Acanthus, and Copen Blue.

Have fun shopping, creating, and decorating for Spring!
