signs of spring

refresh your home with tips from decorist

Mikayla Keating, Decorist designer, is ready for spring. Use her tips to make your home lighter and brighter by focusing on a few simple, easy design tweaks and say hello to the new season!

lighten up

Lighten up your textiles without sacrificing coziness and comfort. Each spring I put away the heavy blankets and bring out the airy linens, playful patterns, and softer tones. I love to spark joy by adding throw pillows in sunny shades of yellow, soft pinks, and greens. They look pretty layered on a sofa or on the arm of a favorite chair.

green thumb

Bringing the outdoors in is one of my favorite ways to welcome spring. Not only does greenery add color, but florals and plants are instant mood-boosters. And nothing says spring quite like a vase full of flowers—or try putting tall branches in a large vase for a major wow moment. A little goes a long way.

functional storage

Make tidying up fun with beautiful baskets that are both practical and easy on the eyes. I love an open-weave basket in the living room for magazines and throws— or to hide messy piles of toys or shoes. A folded blanket placed over the basket makes for a polished look. I want homes to be peaceful places where we can unwind and recharge so it’s nice to get clutter out of sight.

cozy comfort

A super soft sheepskin draped over a sofa adds a lot of natural texture and warmth to your room, not to mention that it’s a great way to hide stains. Sheepskins work year-round, are made to last, and can stand up to pets, kids, or a pair of feet kicked up at the end of a long day.

brighten up walls

Spring is springing! Take a cue from the outdoors and add color or pattern to your walls. A fresh coat of paint in soft shades of green, grey or blue can make a room feel new. Or create a pretty garden mood with floral wallpaper for a pop of color. I really like the romantic vibe of this wallpaper and would love to see it used as an accent wall or tucked against the back of a bookshelf for some unexpected drama.
