Home Improvement Expert Eli Mechlovitz, owner of GlassTileStore.com, has the scoop on quick and easy ways to spruce up your home décor for spring.
Create a fresh and unique atmosphere in your home with Eli's simple tips:
Hot Spring Trend #1: Pop of Color! Nothing says fresh like a burst of color and this year’s hues will not disappoint. What’s on the wheel? Gorgeous orchid, sky blue (think Lupita Nyong’o’s dreamy Oscar’s dress), spicy peach, mint green and bold, turquoise blue. Add any one of these lovely colors with a coat of fresh paint, a dazzling flower display or sumptuous bedroom linens; the sky blue is the limit!
Hot Spring Trend #2: Mid-Century Simplicity Spring is the perfect time to lighten up and saying goodbye to heavy accessories and home accents are no exception. From the airy feel of an acrylic chair to the clean lines of a contemporary vase, this decorating throw back is the wave of the future! Have traditional tastes? No problem! Just a few accents can really make a difference. Combing thrift stores and antique shops is a fun way to add this trend on a budget.
Hot Spring Trend #3: Statement Light Fixtures If you’re ready to change the entire look of your room but don’t know where to begin, start with the focal point. More often than not it’s the light fixture that sets the tone for the entire space and this year, they are on trend. Just let your taste and budget guide you; cool lighting doesn’t have to be expensive and since they are this year’s décor-style front runner; many styles abound!
Hot Spring Trend #4: Bold, Graphic Patterns Easy does it is the key to nailing this daring trend! Whether it’s a new accent rug or a few smartly arranged throw pillows; geometric patterns, animal prints and busy florals are the key to adding visual interest to any tired living space.
Hot Spring Trend #5: Metallics Bold bronze, shimmering silver and glistening gold; these are the accents that will completely transform a room form drab to glam! An ornate mirror will add drama to any space, but it’s especially beautiful in the dining room. Add glistening candles to enhance the mood and remember, it’s ok to mix metals; just like you would your jewelry.
