Los colores de la primavera son hermosos! The colors of spring are beautiful! The vibrant colors are a welcomed sight especially after our long chilly white winter. While the snow is slowly melting, the flower buds are revealing their heads. In anticipation of the colorful blooms outside, why not decorate your interior to reflect the season that is almost upon us.
Flowers are an easy way to add color to your interior. Give them a French twist as in the Chic Antique’s 2014 Katalog below. I love the contrast between the soft pale roses and the harsh wire basket.
Or accompany colorful flowers with colorful books (from Um Brinco)
Use a combination of vases, painted tin cans, and colorful containers with spring sprigs for an eclectic and vibrant tablescape (from Simples Decoracao below)
Or you can create your own colorful blooms to brighten up your table. Paper flowers set atop a white table runner (from Skarlett Spanish Design) is an easy do-it-yourself Fiesta Primavera project.
Use a combination of spring cuttings like forsythia, apple blossoms and magnolias and present them in monochromatic containers. I love the clear green vases (from Haken’s Place, below).
From My Leitmotive (below) vibrant hydrangas are paired with rustic tins, washboards and a pale blue water pitcher. The contrast of objects somehow works!
From Douce Etoile below, I love the old tin with the simple garden flowers.
From Achados de Decoracao (below) a plain glass jar of flowers hanging from a door knob adds a delicate yet colorful pop.
Simple clippings of forsythia branches in a vase add a spring feel. From Elle Décor (below). I do this myself every Spring!
Home accessories can complete a spring look. Check out these wonderful dishes and utensils. Great way to add color to your kitchen all year round!
I love this Rose & Bee Biscuit Barrel from Emma Bridgewater below.
Mercury glass candleholders in soft pastels from DesignMag.fr add an enchanting Spring touch.
I love this idea of placing spring blooms inside small mercury glass candleholders. From Chic Antique Denmark Katalog comes a very easy and simple décor idea (below).
I love the idea of changing your furniture’s hardware to brighten up your interior. Check out these adorable door knobs from Chic Antique.
Inexpensive accessories, such as pillows, throws and bedding can add “los colores de la primavera” to any interior.
Add a pop of spring color with painted furniture, lamps and upholstery.
To have a more permanent reflection of spring in your home, why not use paint?
The gradated green staircase (featured at tinkerbellsjournal.blogspot.com.es) is a wonderful example of how bright spring colors can illuminate an otherwise ordinary drab area. So cute and refreshing.
I hope these global inspirations have motivated you to celebrate “Los Colores de la Primavera” in your own home. And, I hope you have a very happy and creative spring!
