Spring’s Invigorating Palette

Product Information

I love spring! Who doesn’t? It’s when so many flowers bloom, their burst of radiant colors brightening up the mood of everything from the outdoors to interior spaces.

Colorful spring flowers

In today’s article we’ll take a look at some vivacious rooms bursting with color. Then we’ll check out some vividly eye-catching home accessories as well as customizable gifts that celebrate this beautiful season.

Color Me Bold

One of the marks of a good designer is an eye for color. The following designers have several pairs of great eyes, plus great taste.

What bold combinations! I love how the patterns and colors animate this NYC apartment. Bright yellow brocatelle walls and geometric curtains make the perfect backdrop for the contemporary art and photograph. The mix of furniture is so stylish: from the neoclassical bench and armchair, to the metallic contemporary coffee table, to the Japanese red lacquer side tables, and the Victorian-ish sofas in lovely green velvet. Peter Marino rocks!

Vibrant rooms

Mario Buatta, the venerable Prince of Chintz, designed this bright and cheerful Georgian-style living room (above left). I adore the lemon yellow walls! Above right is the entrance to a Connecticut residence decorated by Thomas Britt. The Tibetan pedestal table and trunk along with red leather upholstered chairs and vivid blue matting for the framed prints make this entrance a happy, inviting space.

Being unafraid to use bold hues is a mark of confidence, me thinks. It’s easy to go all-neutral, or matchy-matchy. But those who can confidently (and successfully!) mix and match brilliant hues and patterns are, I believe, the truly creative and talented ones.

Vibrant Home Accessories

If the above rooms don’t inspire us to literally add more color into our lives, then I don’t know what will! Have you been inspired?

I have, so here are my picks of home accessories in vivid colors.
