As spring’s most famous features, Mother Nature’s fresh sprouts emerge to delight us with their wonderful palette. From herbs to flowers to even new leaves, inspiration abounds with seasonal colors. Try bringing some of the outdoors in this spring—now that it’s much more pleasant to do so—and decorate every room of your home with these five colors.
Sophisticated and calm, mint is a stylish shade of green with notes of gray. Possibly its best feature is that it matches with all neutral colors, including white sofas, black window frames, gray wall paint, and hardwood floors. Choose furniture, table runners, or throw pillows in crisp mint this spring for a fresh look.
This instantly recognizable shade of light purple is an incredible companion to natural materials like stone countertops and wood furniture. Soothing and always in style, lavender adds a soft touch to rooms that may otherwise seem impersonal or bland. Decorate with lavender candles or even sprigs of real lavender in bloom.
A shade of bold red-pink, fuchsia is an excellent accent color in moderation. Incorporate this hue to add unexpected personality to any room. Fuchsia accents like painted pottery and wall art work well in rooms dominated by dark colors like black and walnut brown.
This rich, intense blue is stylish and bold. Almost jewel-toned, cornflower is ideal for accent chairs or statement art. This color enhances rooms with dusty earth tones, like a limestone hearth, a jute rug, or tan tile flooring.
A bright yellow-green, chartreuse is an adventurous choice to design with. When used well, it can add personality to a simple room in need of bright color. All-white interiors can benefit from accents of chartreuse to insert a touch of vibrant personality this spring.
Spring colors don’t just adorn the outdoors. With the right palette, you can bring nature’s most beautiful colors indoors too.
