The Early Bird Gets The Worm: 5 Ideas for Decorating this Spring

springIt might seem like a far off event now, but spring will be here before you know it! We survived the holidays and can now bring our focus back to our home. The Lakeside Collection understands how busy you can get, so we have searched the Internet to find you the latest home decor trends for spring 2013.

Don’t be afraid of color
Pops of color like emerald green, tangerine and blue are a must this spring season. Remember to use these as accent colors—you don’t want an entire room tangerine from top to bottom. Try our Crystal Beaded Light-Up Branches paired with a great vase  in any of this season’s must have colors mentioned above.

Bold and geometric patterns
Whether it is a rug, throw pillow or piece of art, bold and geometric patterns will turn any room into a chic place to rest. If you are a fan of this trend, make sure you balance these items with a neutral piece. If you choose a great geometric rug, pair it with our Litchfield Cutwork Curtains to level out the bold print in the rug.

Botanicals aren’t just for the garden
Most of us see mostly grey during the winter months, so this spring make sure you get it back with some great botanical prints. There are some great examples of this trend on the Mike and Honey Home blog. Even out the botanicals with a great side table like our Slate-Trimmed Sofa Side Table.

Warm up the kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of any home. It’s where we cook our meals, hang out during a get together and in general is used every day. Instead of having a cold, bare looking kitchen it’s time to warm it up this spring. Peter Dunham tells MSN Living, “We’re moving toward a more organic modernism with warm, modern materials that look vintage: slate, irregular floors, weathered concrete, natural crackle-glazed tiles that look handmade.” We think our Berber Corner Runner is a great start to this look.

Do what makes you happy
At the end of the day it’s your home. You can always go against the latest trend and do what makes you happy. You want to walk in your home after a long day and feel relaxed. We are a fan of our Home Wall Appliques this spring. What better way to show the philosophy you live your life by than to put them on your wall?
