Spring is a time for renewal. The grass turns green again, the leaves on the empty trees return, and perennials appear where there was only dirt or snow before. Spring is also the perfect time to renew the inside of your home. Use these tips from Murray Floor & Window Coverings to get started.
The Colors of Spring in Billings, Montana
Just as colorful blooms appear in spring, add some color to your home with unique combinations. Try bright colors together that you have never used before, like pink and turquoise to liven up a room. To ease into this change in your color palette, mix in a darker color, like navy blue. Or subtly infuse a brighter color into your neutral décor. Red accents work well with tans and creams, and a few light blue accessories such as throw pillows or vases add interest to a black-and-white room.
Bring Nature into Your Montana Home
Pantone’s color of this year for 2017 is Greenery – a bright green with a yellowish tint. Go all in by painting a room or accent wall in this cheerful color. Too much green for you? Try hanging a collection of framed leaf prints in one room or introduce an accent chair in a green fabric.
Plants naturally bring green into your home. Go the traditional route with potted houseplants that are easy to maintain so they remain green throughout the year. Or add a touch of whimsy to your room with a terrarium filled with small plants and tiny accents that make it look like a fairy garden.
Woven wood shades from Hunter Douglas bring nature to your windows. Made with wood, grasses, and reeds, these shades provide natural texture and visual interest to a room without being overwhelming.
Accessorize with nature with vases of real or artificial blooms on fireplace mantels and end tables, or bowls of fruit on a kitchen table or counter.
Flowery décor is perfect for this time of year, and it doesn’t have to be pictures you hang on the wall. Add an area rug with a floral print to a sitting room. Or purchase new Roman shades with a muted floral pattern for your windows.
Let the Sunshine in
After the cloudy days of winter, the spring sunshine is a welcome sight. Replace your window treatments with new ones that let the sunshine in while still protecting your furnishings from harmful UV rays.
Sheers and shadings from Hunter Douglas are comprised of sheer panels that gently filter light and vanes of fabric that increase both your shade and privacy. Use Silhouettes® or Pirouettes® for horizontal windows and Luminettes® for sliding glass doors.
For windows with a view, screen shades also filter light without blocking your view of the outdoors.
