It is officially spring, and it is finally starting to look like it in Minnesota. Tulips are popping up, birds are chirping and the wiener dog manages to find all the muddy spots in the backyard.
Some signs of spring are more welcome than others. (Insert winky face emoji here.)
It also has me feeling like it’s time to breathe some new life in my space. My new sectional arrived, and it is wonderful.
The tufted cushions, the chaise, the mid-century shape, and the color. The mixed grey color will help with the previously mentioned muddy wiener dog.
And I don’t think I’m the only one who feels like freshening up their space. Furniture has been moving out of the store at a pretty good clip the past few weeks.
With that in mind, I am starting to work on some new pieces, and I am thinking about what colors are really inspiring me.
1. Blush Pink
I am not over this color. It is just so light and pretty. And as soon as I paint it on a piece of furniture it feels instantly transformed into my new favorite piece. Especially when paired with brass hardware. And it just so happens, I just finished an end table in blush pink. With brass pulls. I am kind of in love with the pulls too, I must say. There will be plenty more blush showing up in the Vintage Modern shop.
At one point, nearly the entire interior of my house was painted grey. It is a fantastic neutral and far more exciting to me, than say beige. (I recently informed my mom that I will NEVER paint anything beige. Haha. Just not my shade.) Grey has so much versatility. It can be moody, serene or warm. Some greys just feel really cozy, like a favorite wool cardigan you might wear on a chilly spring day.
3. Bright Green
Pantone declared Greenery the color of the year for 2017. Greenery is just what it sounds like, a bright cheery green that resembles the green of plants and trees. I particularly like the idea that, “Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.” That is exactly what I’m talking about. Spring is nothing if not a time for new beginnings.
Yellow just screams spring. It is daffodils, dandelions and the buttery center of daisies. I am seeing different shades of yellow from bright Sunshine Yellow over at Elle Décor to a more pale, buttery yellow over at House Beautiful . Either way, yellow adds warmth and light to a space, like a little ray of sunshine. That’s why we painted our Rocking on Sunshine Upcycled Bentwood Rocking Chair a buttery yellow. We thought it would be perfect to brighten up a nursery or any little nook that needs some warmth.
So those are my top four favorite colors for home décor this spring. Are there some colors that should have made my list? Let me know in the comments below, and I’ll keep that in mind as I’m working on new pieces for the shop. I am always happy to hear from my customers.
