Spring Colors

How to decorate for spring | the perks of a neutral home

I’m still hoping for mild weather, but that hasn’t stopped me from adding spring colors to our home. Earlier this week I shared my spring home tour with tips to bring spring into your home {even if it’s still cold and snowy outside}. One tip is to infuse your home with spring colors. Colors evoke emotion and can make a space feel more calm, cheerful, romantic, etc. Now that you have taken a little of our home tour, I’m going to share how I am using colors this spring.

A few of my favorite colors for spring are lavender, porcelain blue, and blush pink. Okay, they’re always my favorite colors. I’ve even found ways to incorporate them for fall and winter.

Lavender is associated with luxury, elegance and romance. It reminds me of our trips to Napa Valley. I incorporated it into our powder room drawing from subtle colors in our turkish rug, the addition of oil and a pretty linen towel.

Blue is known to be serene and inviting, which is exactly how I want our home to feel. This is the most frequently used color in our home. Currently I’m using various shades of blue in our master bedroom, family room, dining room and mudroom.

Pink is also associated with romance. It’s known to make you feel happy, passionate and evoke excitement. Guess what? I’m excited for spring! I’ve added simple touches of blush pink in our living room through both fresh and dried flowers and a simple throw and in our breakfast room with a fresh flower arrangement.
